Doosan Kim Yoo-seong debuts in the first team after twists and turns… 1 scoreless inning against SSG￼
Doosan Bears rookie pitcher Kim Yu-seong (21) finally made his debut on the mound for the first team. It has been one day since he was forgiven by the victim of school violence and registered for the first team.
In the 2023 Shinhan Bank Sol KBO League SSG Landers match held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 28th, Kim Yoo-seong took the mound as the third pitcher of the team at the end of the 8th inning, trailing 1-4, and recorded one scoreless inning. 29 pitches.
He didn’t hit a single hit, but he gave up two walks and struck out one.

Tae-gon Oh was also induced to ground a ball, but first baseman Seok-Hwan Yang failed to catch the ball, so 2 out and 1 base continued.
After Yang Seok-hwan’s mistake, Kim Yu-seong, who was shaken, gave up a walk after an 8-pitch game with Hanyu-seom, and allowed a straight walk to Kim Seong-hyun.
He escaped the crisis on his own. Kim Yu-seong, who was driven with the bases loaded with two outs, struck out Park Seong-han and ended the inning크크크벳.
Kim Yoo-seong is a promising player who has been noticed since his amateur days. In the 2021 rookie draft held in August 2020, he was nominated for the first time by the NC Dinos.
However, shortly after his nomination, the fact of school violence in Naedong Middle School was revealed and controversy arose.
In 2017, when he was in the third year of Naedong Middle School, Yuseong Kim assaulted a one-year junior and was suspended from attendance for 5 days by the School Violence Committee. In February 2018, the Changwon District Court ordered Kim Yoo-seong to attend 20 hours of psychological treatment and 40 hours of community service.
As the controversy grew, NC eventually withdrew her nomination, and Yuseong Kim went on to Korea University. Even after she was suspended from playing for one year by the Korea Baseball Softball Association, she was unable to stand on the mound for some time.
Kim Yoo-seong, who returned to the game after completing her disciplinary action, participated in the 2023 rookie draft in September of last year.
Doosan nominated Kim Yoo-seong as the 19th overall player in the second round and received a down payment of 150 million won.
His first-team debut was repeatedly delayed because an agreement was not reached with the victim of his school violence, and he played only in the Futures (2nd division) league. Then, he was forgiven by the victim last week, and on the 27th ahead of the Daegu Samsung Lions match, he was named in the first team entry for the first time.
On this day, he took another step while digesting his first team debut.
