The Korean national baseball team at the Asian Games, led by head coach Ryu Joong-il, won the final match against Taiwan at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held at Hangzhou Xiaoxing Baseball Stadium in Zhejiang Province, China, at 7 p.m. on the 7th (Korean time).
This won the gold medal for the Korean national baseball team. Following the 2010 Guangzhou, 2014 Incheon, and 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, she won gold medals in four consecutive tournaments. 스포츠토토
Moon Dong-ju was the first contributor to the victory. Moon Dong-ju, who started the game, allowed three runs and struck out seven with no outs in six innings. It was a game that completely made up for the loss of two runs in four innings against Taiwan on the 2nd. He completely blocked Taiwanese batters by banking on fastballs and falling curves that exceeded 150 kilometers per hour.
Moon Dong-ju is the best right-handed prospect representing the KBO League. From the 2022 season, when he was in his first year as a professional player, he used excellent curves and sharp sliders with fast and vertical movements in the second half of 150 kilometers per hour. This season, he became the first Korean player to throw a 160.1 km/h fastball in the KBO League.
There is a player who recognized Moon Dong-ju’s talent early. The main character is Choo Shin-soo, the “major league legend” and SSG Landers’ “oldest brother.” In January, Choo Shin-soo appeared on DKNET, a Korean radio broadcaster in Dallas, and insisted that Moon Dong-ju should be selected for the national team. At that time, Moon Dong-ju was not included in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team.
Choo Shin-soo said, “There are many young and talented players (in Korea). “If (young players) participate in international competitions, their minds will change,” he said.
“Moon Dong-ju’s control is said to be insufficient, but there is no player who throws that much.” It is also what Korean baseball should do to create an opportunity for these players to go abroad by shining their faces in international competitions,” he praised Moon Dong-ju.
Moon Dong-ju later joined the national team for the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games and wore the national flag. On the 2nd, the first game, he was bruised by defeat against Taiwan, but he grew at a high speed in one game. In the most important final, he took the victory with all his ability. As Choo Shin-soo said, no player threw as much as Moon Dong-ju. Moon Dong-ju dominated the final and gave the national team a gold medal.
