`Kim Byeong-Hyun breaks away from the nightmare of World Series`

The Associated Press (AP) published special articles about Kim’s performance in this season on the 10th, and reported that Kim has overcome last year’s nightmare of the World Series to full restoration.

The AP said that Kim’s performance during this year is quite unbelievable, despite the fact that he allowed two draw-homeruns in the 9th inning during the 4th and 5th World Series finals with New York Yankees last year. Fellow-pitcher Kurt Schilling also congratulated Kim’s return by saying, “He is the most powerful pitcher right now. It’s the best story I have ever seen so far.”

According to the AP, Kim’s restoration was due to his capability to freely control all kinds of balls, including fast straight ball with the highest speed of 152 kilometers per hour, curve, and perfected change-up.
