Yang Hyun-jong started in the home game against NC Dinos in the final game of the 2023 professional baseball KBO League regular season held at Gwangju-KIA Champions Field on the 17th and went 6 innings without allowing a run, exceeding 170 innings.

As a result, Yang Hyun-jong became the first player in the KBO League to set a record of pitching 170 innings for 9 consecutive seasons. He surpassed the 170 innings pitched for 8 consecutive seasons that he set in the game against Changwon NC on September 22 last year.

Starting with 171.1 innings in 2014, Yang Hyun-jong has pitched more than 170 innings every season until this year. Although he had a bit of a slump in the middle of this season, he bounced back and eventually achieved a record, showing that he is the pitcher most worthy of the title of the KBO League’s leading inning pitcher.

Meanwhile, with the top of the 7th inning currently underway, Yang Hyun-jong is still guarding the mound. The score is 2-1, with KIA ahead.
