The only rookie to participate in the LG Twins’ 1st team spring camp is pitcher Park Myeong-geun.
It is not a companion to save spirit. LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop judged that Myeong-geun Park, who had just graduated from high school, could survive in the first team from his first year as a pro, and he took him to the camp to keep an eye on him.
There is a special advantage of being nominated by LG in the 3rd round in the 2023 rookie draft. He is small at 174cm tall, but is a pitcher who throws a fastball over 150km with his right-handed sidearm. Like teammate Jung Woo-young, who won the hold king last year, he has a fastball with a speed of 150km on the sidearm. Park Myeong-geun is ‘Little Jung Woo-young’.
Park Myung-geun played an active part in 13 games (51⅔ innings) at Raongo last year with an average ERA of 1.21 and 4 wins and 1 loss. He walked 11 times, struck out 68, and allowed only one home run. He drew attention last year with a fastball of 154 km in the TV program ‘Strongest Baseball’.
During the warm-up and catch-up time at the camp, Myung-keun Park is paired with Woo-young Jung for training. Jung Woo-young said of Park Myung-geun, “He has good control. He praised the ball coming around his chest and not getting out of it.”

Another amazing talent. On the day of departure for spring camp, LG pitchers mentioned Park Myung-geun while waiting in front of the gate to board. Veteran Kim Jin-seong was surprised and said, “Park Myeong-geun says quick is 1 second 1?” Other pitchers also said, “They say it’s one second. It’s amazing,” they exchanged stories.
When there is a runner on first base, Park’s slide step is 1.1 seconds. Park Myung-geun’s pitching form does not have a large backswing and his arm swings quickly.
It seems that it is possible to reduce the time in the slide step because of the short height. (Jung Woo- young protests that he is tall and the quick motion is slow) . I did a fact check against the coaching staff about Park Myung-geun’s slide step. Director Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “1 second and 15. It seems to throw that much,” he said.
Pitching coach Kyung Hun-ho said, “I throw it within 1 second and 20 seconds. Pitchers are usually told to do a quick motion within 1.30 seconds when the runner is on first base. Myung-geun told me, “I heard that he throws within 1 second and 20.”
The manager, coaches, and senior pitchers were all surprised by Park’s slide step (1 second 10 to 1 second 20). There are many rookie pitchers who throw 150km fastballs. In particular, this year’s rookies Kim Seo-hyeon (Hanwha), Yoon Young-cheol (KIA), Shin Young-woo (NC), and Lee Ro-un (SSG) are attracting attention for their fast balls.
However, it is not easy to perfect from amateur to detailed parts such as quick motion. Park Myung-geun has good control even with fast quick motion and a fastball of 150km. Kim Seo-hyun, Yoon Young-chul, Shin Young-woo, and Lee Ro-wun, who were nominated in the first round, are receiving attention, but Park Myung-geun could be the dark horse.
