The pitching of Koo Dae-sung, who is older than Ji Chun-myeong, is impressive in itself.
Koo Dae-sung took the mound in the bottom of the 8th inning, with Geelong Korea trailing 0-7 in the Australian League match against the 온라인바카라 Adelaide Giants held at the Diamond Sports Stadium in West Beach, Adelaide, Australia on the 19th (Korean time).
He struck out on a swing against Rickson One Grove, the first batter. Then, Liam Bull, who started as a pinch hitter, grounded shortstop, and Ryan January, who struck out looking, gave up one scoreless inning.
On this day, Dae-sung Koo threw only 19 pitches and his highest speed was only 117 km, but it was probably thanks to the veteran’s composure. He succeeded in overpowering opponent batters by controlling the tempo of pitching with perfect control.
This season is not the first time Koo Dae-sung and Geelong have had a relationship. Previously, in 2019, he climbed to the command tower as the first coach of Geelong Korea, and at that time climbed the mound as a pitcher in Brisbane and recorded one hit and no runs in one inning.
Koo Dae-sung made his debut in the KBO League in 1993 as the first pick for the Binggrae Eagles, and this year marks the 30th year of his baseball career.
He recorded 67 wins, 71 losses, 214 saves, and an average ERA of 2.85 in 569 KBO games.
In 1969, many baseball fans were also moved by the continued efforts and pitching of Koo Dae-seong, 55 years old in Korean age.
