Born in 1997, Han Doo-sol went to Gwangju Suchang Elementary School, Gwangju Jinheung Middle School, Gwangju Il High School, and Riseisha Medical Sports College. When he was at Gwangju Il High School in 2014, he pitched 80 innings in 16 games in the presidential cup, baseball association organization, and national sports. And he is a pitcher who is good enough to be selected for the U-18 national baseball team.
However, he was not nominated in the 2015 KBO Rookie Draft. After failing to enter college, he joined Riseisha Medical Sports College, a Japanese social baseball team.
Then, he joined the KT Wiz as a player in 2018, and was released due to injuries after failing to show other performances with 4 wins and 2 losses in 45 games in the Futures League. After that, he started serving in the military.
After being discharged from the military, he passed the SSG Landers’ joining test in June 2021. On the 3rd, he was called as an official player and joined the first division for the first time since his professional debut.
SSG pitcher Han Doo-sol warmed up in front of the dugout in the top of the eighth inning when he was trailing 9-2. When he became a defender in the bottom of the eighth inning, Han Doo-sol took a big breath and headed to the mound. Before pitching, I took off my hat and looked at the inscription on the hat. “If you can’t kill the batter, I’ll die,” was engraved.
Han Doo-sol handled leadoff hitter Kim Jae-hyun with a ground ball in front of the pitcher in the bottom of the eighth inning, and caught both the second batter Park Joon-tae and the third batter Park Chan-hyuk with a center field fly. He retired three Kiwoom batters with five balls.
SSG players applauded Han Doo-sol heading to the dugout, and Han Doo-sol smiled lightly. Han Doo-sol’s first professional stage, which has so many stories and twists, is over.
