Everything was awkward and unfamiliar, but I could see a sense of confident self-confidence.
On the morning of the 29th, the first team of the Hanwha Eagles showed up at the Incheon International Airport Terminal 2 departure hall to depart for Arizona Spring Camp, USA.
There was a player who looked particularly young in the team. This is Kim Seo-hyun, the ‘youngest’ of the pitching team. Kim Seo-hyun, who is called the biggest rookie of the year, is a fireballer who threw a 155 km fast ball last year at Seoul High School. Among scouts, he is a right-arm sidearm pitcher who is ranked first among scouts and is tall at 188cm.
Kim Seo-hyun, who wore a Hanwha uniform as the first overall, received a down payment of 500 million won and was recognized for her high future value. Hanwha also nominated Moon Dong-ju as the first overall pick in the 2022 draft.
Kim Seo-hyun, who joined the first spring camp, looked a bit nervous as she posed for reporters. However, he kindly showed signs of autograph requests from fans who recognized him.
At the departure hall, Kim Seo-hyun said, “I’m not thinking of becoming the rookie of the year yet. He wants to contribute to the team’s victory.” 스포츠토토

Regarding Moon Dong-joo and Kim Seo-hyun, who are competing for the rookie of the year, Hanwha Eagles general manager Son Hyun expressed his anticipation, saying, “If the two players compete fiercely, we can expect a greater synergy effect.”
On the other hand, the Hanwha Eagles will conduct spring camp training in Mesa, Arizona, USA from February 1st, and then proceed with the second spring camp in Okinawa, Japan from the 24th.
