Yang Hyun-jong fights back

Professional baseball KIA Tigers left-handed pitcher Yang Hyun-jong (36) achieved the record of facing 10,000 batters for the second time in the KBO League.

Yang Hyun-jong appeared as a starting pitcher in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League game against the Samsung Lions held at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju on the 7th, and came off the mound with 5 hits (1 home run), 1 walk, 2 strikeouts, and 3 runs in 6 innings.

The team only completed the 6th inning, tied 3-3, and did not record a win or loss, but instead set a valuable milestone.

Yang Hyun-jong faced Kim Heon-gon in the 3rd inning with 2 outs and 2nd and 3rd bases.

Yang Hyun-jong, who debuted in a KIA uniform in 2007, is the 10,000th batter to fill in in 17 seasons (he will advance to the U.S. Major League in 2021).

Yang Hyun-jong’s first batter was Park Yong-taek, whom he met in a game against the LG Twins on April 7, 2007.

Yang Hyun-jong celebrated by handling Kim Heon-gon with a fly ball to center field and escaping from danger.

The record in this category is Song Jin-woo (former Hanwha Eagles), who retired in 2009, with 12,708 batters.

Song Jin-woo, the pitcher with the most wins in the KBO League with a total of 210 wins, is a legend who holds numerous ‘records’.

Yang Hyun-jong, who currently has 168 wins and is second in all-time wins after Song Jin-woo, is considered a candidate to challenge his dream of 200 wins. 섯다
