The Gangneung High School baseball team won the first round of the ‘Golden Lion National High School Baseball Championship’, the second national tournament this year.
Gangneung High School, led by coach Choi Jae-ho, defeated the drawbridge 4-2 in the first round of the tournament held at Shinwol Baseball Park at 9 am on the 17th. Dae-hyeon “Jotani” Jo (3 years old) also shined in the match today. Cho Dae-hyun, who is active as both a pitcher and a hitter, started as the designated hitter No. 3. He was silent in his first three at-bats, but delivered the final blow when his team needed it most. At the end of the 6th inning, when they were facing 2-2, Cho Dae-hyun hit a double in the situation with 2 out on 2nd and 3rd base, and scored 2 RBIs on time in the final.
He was also active as a pitcher. Cho Dae-hyeon, who took the mound as the team’s fourth pitcher in the top of the 6th inning when they were trailing 1-2, with 1 out and 2nd base, blocked 3 2/3 innings with 6 strikeouts and no runs. In the bottom of the 6th inning, he even took the winning pitcher with the final hit he hit himself. Dubbed ‘Jotani’, a nickname derived from Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels) for his two-time pitching career, he performed well worthy of the title.먹튀검증
