“I guess people who are desperate can work.”
Kim Hye-seong (24, Kiwoom Heroes) had an accident on the final inspection stage. Kim Hye-sung hit a home run as a substitute in an evaluation match with the Hanshin Tigers held at the Kyocera Dome in Osaka, Japan on the 7th. He drew a home run arch alone in the two evaluation matches played in Japan. It was an even more thunderous home run because Park Byeong-ho, Yang Eui-ji, Choi Jeong, and Na Seong-beom, the main home run hitters of the national team, had not yet tasted it.메이저사이트
Kim Hye-seong took a superior solo shot from Keisuke Kobayashi in his first at-bat as the lead batter in the top of the 8th inning with a 4-2 lead. Hanshin fans in the stands were also impressed by the intuition of the home run. Thanks to Kim Hye-sung’s home run, Park Kun-woo’s timely hit and Park Hae-min’s squeeze bunt made it 7-2. Considering that Korea gave up two runs at the end of the 8th inning, the extra run in the top of the 8th was even more precious.
When asked how he felt about the home run, Kim Hye-seong was a bit shy. He humbly replied, “It was my first at-bat, but I was lucky to hit the ball after reporting it. It seems that a desperate person works.”
In fact, Kim Hye-seong boasted a hot hitting feeling from the training camp in Arizona, USA. Adding up all the practice games he played in Arizona and Korea, he recorded a batting average of 0.647 (11 hits in 17 at-bats) in 5 games. He is also stable in defense. Kim Hye-seong is a talented player who won the Golden Glove in the second baseman category last year.
However, he was pushed by Keystone Combi Kim Ha-seong and Tommy Hyeon-soo Edmon in the major leagues and is living as a backup in the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC). Lee Kang-chul, coach of the Korean national baseball team, has nailed Edmund as the starting second baseman.
Kim Hye-seong is still doing her part silently and without complaint. He said, “It doesn’t matter much in the national competition, whether it’s a starting match or not. I want to try to be of help if I can go out in any situation. Edmund is a really good player. He has a good swing and a great defense.” said.
Since the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, fans have called Kim Hye-seong an ‘international player’ as he has consistently left a good impression in international competitions. Regarding this, Kim Hye-seong said, “I am grateful, but I am always doing my best in every game. I may or may not do well, but I am stepping forward with the thought that I want to be of some help to the team.” promised
