Anchor Moment
An increasing number of high school students are heading to the United States to pursue their major league dreams. Seoul High School pitcher Lee Chansol, who signed with the Boston Red Sox, is one of them, and the Red Sox have already started pampering him in case he gets injured.
Reporter Hanjun Kim reports.

Lee Chansol is training with his teammates.

But even though he’s a pitcher, he’s not throwing the ball himself.

That’s because the Boston Red Sox have given him special instructions not to throw the ball for the time being, in case he gets injured.
