The returning ace of professional baseball SSG, pitcher Kim Kwang-hyun made a comeback match in a demonstration game.

As the nickname KK was, while performing a strikeout show, LG rookie Song Chan was hit by a single blow.

Byung-min Yoo.


Kim Gwang-hyun, who climbed the mound at the Munhak Stadium for the first time in 890 days since 2019, showed off his unchanging majesty.

As soon as he appeared in the 6th inning, he struck out LG Shin Min-jae, Oh Ji-hwan, and Han Seok-hyeon with 11 balls in a row, and the sharp slider and the curve polished in the United States were the highlight.

Kim Gwang-hyeon, who managed to get to the two-out in the 7th inning, was hit by Song Chan-eui on the first fastball and was shaken by walking and hitting, but finished the comeback game without conceding any additional runs.

[Kim Kwang-hyun / SSG Pitcher: I knew he was aiming for a fastball, but he was trying to throw a fastball.

He is a good player to have hit that fastball with a home run.

Baseball is very difficult.


Chan-eui Song, who surprised Gwang-hyun Kim, took the lead with five home runs in the demonstration game by pulling a home run from Ivan Nova, who has won 90 of the big league career.

[Chan Song Song/LG Infielder: (Kim Kwang-hyun) Because the ball is so good.

I thought, 'I'll have to play with a faster count'.

It's a moment I've always dreamed of since starting baseball, and it feels so good to have it done.]

The hopes of KIA fans have grown even greater. 

Hyeon-jong Yang played without a score in 4 innings, Eui-ri Lee played without a score in 3 innings, and rookie Do-young Kim recorded RBI and stolen bases one by one in a multi-hit, raising expectations.
