There was a boy who hit a home run against Venezuela at the 2013 World Youth Baseball Championship. The boy’s name is Lim Byung-wook. He was noticed early on as a 5-tool player, and in 2013 he was first nominated by Kiwoom (then Nexen) and became a pro.
Lim Byung-wook’s career as a professional player had a great amplitude. But there were times when he definitely showed his talent. In particular, he performed phenomenally in the postseason including the 2018 semi-playoffs. He, who had many fans and was nicknamed Heroes’ first love, seemed to explode his potential.
However, it was Lim Byung-wook who suffered from injuries afterwards, and after recovery, it was difficult to improve his condition. In the end, he decided to enlist for a career reversal, and after being discharged, he will have a full-fledged comeback season this season. 안전놀이터
