“It’s different from the rookies I’ve seen during my 16 years of professional life.”

Moon Hyun-bin was nominated by the Hanwha Eagles with the 11th overall pick in the second round of the 2023 KBO Rookie Draft. He is preparing for his first professional season by participating in the 1st and 2nd spring camps with Kim Seo-hyun.

Moon Hyun-bin can play as second baseman and shortstop. Ahead of this season, Ha Joo-seok was banned from participating in 70 games for drunk driving. Hanwha recruited Oh Seon-jin as a free agent (FA), but Moon Hyun-bin’s momentum is also formidable.

Oh Seon-jin, who is competing in good faith, also praised Moon Hyun-bin. Ahead of the practice match against SSG Landers held at Kochida Stadium in Okinawa, Japan on the 3rd, “It’s different from the juniors I’ve seen while living as a pro for 16 years. Hyun Bin has his own things ready and his thoughts have been established.” I think I see it. When I see him training, I definitely feel a sense of maturity. I also want to learn a little while watching that part.”

Moon Hyun-bin started as the second batter and second baseman in the SSG game. He was quiet at his plate. In his first at-bat in the bottom of the first inning, he retired on a grounder to shortstop. In the second at-bat in the third inning, he was out with a ground ball to the first baseman.

However, Moon Hyun-bin showed his presence in defense. In the top of the 5th inning, when the Hanwha Eagles were leading 2-1, Kim Min-sik sent a quick ground ball between the second baseman and the shortstop in a safe first base situation. He was a batted ball that could be a hit enough. However, Moon Hyun-bin made a sliding catch and passed the ball to shortstop Oh Seon-jin. Neat double play.

Director Carlos Subero also paid attention to Moon Hyun-bin’s Lake Bi. Coach Subero said, “Lee Jin-young’s running base play stood out in offense. I also paid attention to Moon Hyun-bin’s defense. He showed a good appearance.” 안전놀이터

Kim Seo-hyun also threw a fast ball with a maximum velocity of 153 km/h in the game that day and blocked 1 inning with 10 balls. If Kim Seo-hyun is a pitcher, Moon Hyun-bin is a batter. If the two rookies show their performance in the practice game in the regular season, it will be a great help to Hanwha.
