High school baseball's best fastball pitcher Deoksu High School player Shim Jun-seok is known to have decided to advance to the American Major Leagues instead of the KBO.

An official from Deoksu High School said in a phone call with SBS today (16th), "I asked Shim Jun-seok about his career path, and he heard that he decided to advance to the United States." He said, "I respect Jun-seok Shim's decision."

In order for Shim Jun-seok to play in the KBO league next season, he has to submit an application for the rookie draft to the KBO by midnight today, but it was confirmed that he did not submit the application by 8 pm.

Since he was a freshman at Deoksu High School, Jun-seok Shim made his name as the best pitcher in high school by throwing a fast ball in the mid-150km/h range.

He was 194 cm tall and weighed 103 kg, and he received the mark of major league scouts early for his fast and changing balls from a strong physique.

However, he suffered a back injury last year and his pitching balance was broken, and the slump continued.

He appeared in a total of 12 games this year and was sluggish with an ERA of 5.14, 2-2, and in the recent President's Cup, he suffered only 1.2 innings, 7 walks, and 1 run due to a fracture of his right big toe.

According to Shim Jun-seok, the biggest fisherman in high school, decided to go to the US, there will be a big cataclysmic change in the KBO League rookie draft to be held next month.
