Busan High School lost 11 to 4 to Woosung AC in the first round of the 78th Cheongryonggi National High School Baseball Championship and Weekend League Wangjungwangjeon (co-sponsored by the Chosun Ilbo, Sports Chosun, and Korea Baseball Softball Association) held at Mokdong Stadium in Seoul on the 9th. won

Busan High School’s No. 4 hitter Lee Won-joon (17) showed off his performance. A first baseman and outfielder, despite being a sophomore, he became the team’s fourth hitter that day and performed very well with 2 hits and 4 RBIs in 4 at-bats. Park Gye-won, coach of Busan High School, said, “Today the bat was hot. He is a good enough player to be selected as a high school all-star even though he is a sophomore. Above all, he has good guts.” In particular, the sweeping 3 RBIs and 3 bases that split the right and middle in the top of the 5th inning, which was chased by 2-6, were impressive.

Busan High School’s second round opponent is the winner of the Deoksu High School-Masan Classic. Both teams came to Mokdong Stadium that day, but the match was postponed to the 10th due to repeated heavy rain.

Deoksu High School is the team that gave Busan High School a loss in the first round of the Blue Dragon last year. Not only coach Park, but the entire team are vowing revenge.
Wonjun Lee is no exception. After the game, Lee Won-joon said, “I want to play against Deoksu High School in the second round.” Deoksu High School won E-Mart Bae at the beginning of this year, while Busan High School won the Bonghwangdae at the end of last year and the Golden Lion this year. The two teams, along with Jangchung High School and Gangneung High School, are strong contenders for the championship.

Deoksu High has pitcher Kim Tae-hyeong, who achieved a no-hit, no-run in the weekend league petition classic on the 10th of last month, and Baek Jun-seo, the MVP and batting king of the E-Mart Cup.

Lee Won-joon has no special relationship with Kim Tae-hyung, who is the same age as him. Instead, he said he became close with Baek Jun-seo during the high school all-star game. Lee Won-joon said, “I also received a bat from (Baek) Jun-seo hyung. I want to win the E-Mart Cup MVP,” burning his will to win.

It is a prestigious baseball high school in Busan, but Lee Won-joon’s intentions are even more special. He expressed his desire to “become a player who is considered a role model for his juniors”.

Among major leaguers, he said he likes Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (Toronto Blue Jays) and confessed that he is a special fan. He said, “The swing full of power is similar to mine” is the reason.
On the other hand, Busan High School Won Sang-hyun, who was the main player in last year’s victory in the phoenix match and missed the Golden Lion due to an elbow injury, appeared in the game that day and drew attention. Won Sang-hyun, who took the mound at the bottom of the 5th inning, allowed 2 runs (zero earned) as the infield defense of Busan High School committed 2 errors, but it had nothing to do with the win or loss.

In addition to Lee Won-joon, Busan High School had a large number of young players in the lineup, including Ahn Ji-won, Choi Min-jae, and Lee Seo-joon (above freshmen). Regardless of age or grade, coach Park’s baseball philosophy is to ‘focus on players who are good at it’. He emphasized, “There are concerns about whether it’s okay for a freshman to play in the starting lineup, but all I’ve learned from the pros all my life is ‘winning baseball’.” Not only the batting line, but also the mound is backed by strong sophomores such as Kim Jeong-yeop, Kim Dong-hu, and Chun-gyeom, behind leading pitchers Seong Young-tak and Won Sang-hyun.
