The shortest national team duo’ Baseball is based on heart, not height, “I will prove it at the national team” 

“You don’t play baseball based on your height, you have to prove it to the national team.” (Jichan)
“Height is only part of the gaze, I will only focus on my role.” (Seongyun)

A player with unique specifications will be included in the baseball team at this year’s Hangzhou Asian Games (AG). There are. 1m63cm. The two shortest players in the KBO League have both joined the national team. The shortest duo of ‘little giants’ Kim Ji-chan (22) and Kim Seong-yoon (24, Samsung Lions) are aiming for Korea’s gold medal with their first Taegeuk mark since their professional debut. 스포츠토토

Kim Ji-chan, a four-year professional, was expected to join the national team long ago. Kim Ji-chan, who has proven his ability to perform operations by recording a batting average of 0.294 and 13 stolen bases in 96 games this season in addition to being a utility resource capable of playing second base, shortstop, and outfield defense, was proudly named in the final entry of the national team announced in June. Kim Ji-chan, who felt awkward about his first time with the adult national team, said, “I will talk a lot with my older brothers and learn a lot from technical to life aspects.” 

Kim Seong-yoon’s life with the national team is more awkward than Kim Ji-chan’s. Because he was a ‘surprise selection’ that even he didn’t expect. Junior Kim Hyun-jun (Samsung) emerged as a strong candidate for the outfield position where Lee Jeong-hoo (Kiwoom Heroes) was missing, but when the replacement was announced, it was Kim Seong-yoon who was called. His batting average in the second half was 0.354 (1st in the team, 8th in the league), and he received passing marks for his good batting skills, quick feet, and ability to execute strategies appropriate to the situation. He said, “I was very shocked when I received the call that I had been selected for the national team, but now I am even more excited.” 

Both players are expected to play various positions on the national team. Kim Ji-chan, who can play second base and shortstop, is expected to compete for the keystone combination position with Kim Hye-seong (Kiwoom Heroes), Park Seong-han (SSG Landers), and Kim Joo-won (NC Dinos). He’s also been mentioned as an outfielder, but he hasn’t done any outfield training yet. As he has good operational skills at bat, he is expected to be placed in the upper and lower batting order. Kim Ji-chan strengthened his resolve, saying, “I will prepare well in my mind so that I can do well in any situation or position.” 

Kim Seong-yoon can also play all outfield positions. There are only four outfielders on the national team, so in limited situations, he has quick feet, strong shoulders, and the power to hit a single despite his small stature, so his versatility is endless. In addition to being a starter, he has a lot of experience as a pinch hitter, pinch runner, and defender, so he will be used in a variety of ways. Kim Seong-yoon said, “I will try to be fully prepared so that I can faithfully carry out my duties no matter what role I play. He said, “My brothers on the team (Samsung) also advised me to do what I can well rather than being overly ambitious,” and expressed his determination going into the competition. 

‘The shortest national team duo’. What attracted attention with the news of the two players being selected together was their height. However, Kim Seong-yoon said, “Height is only a part of how others see me,” and added, “I will only focus on performing the role given to me well in the competition.” Kim Ji-chan has also always said, “You don’t play baseball because of your height,” from the beginning of his professional career. He gritted his teeth and said, “Now it’s time to prove that to the national team.” 


For the first time in 141 years of history’ Bae Ji-hwan’s one-man show was reversed from 0:9 to 13:12! Fantastic defense with 2 hits, 3 RBIs, and a double play 

It was truly a one-man show in offense and defense. Bae Ji-hwan (24)’s performance stood out in helping his team, the Pittsburgh Pirates, turn a 0-9 loss into a 13-12 victory.아톰카지노

Bae Ji-hwan started as number 8 and second baseman in the 2023 Major League (ML) away game against the Cincinnati Reds held at the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA on the 24th (Korean time) and went 2 hits in 4 at-bats, 3 RBIs, 1 run, and 1 walk. recorded. He failed to steal one base, but hit in three straight games, raising his batting average from .237 to .241.

Pittsburgh won four straight games in a historic upset that will remain in the club’s history, and maintained fourth place in the National League Central Division with 74 wins and 81 losses. According to Sarah Lang, a major league statistical analyst, it was the first time since Pittsburgh was founded in 1882 that it came back from a 9-point deficit to win. Since joining the National League in 1887, four comeback wins by 8 points were the best record.

Pittsburgh’s victory seemed unlikely as starter Bailey Falter collapsed in two innings, allowing 8 runs, 9 hits (3 home runs), 1 walk, 1 strikeout, and 1 strikeout. Kyle Nicholas, who took the mound next, put out the fire by allowing 2 hits, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts, and 1 run in 2 innings, but the loss was deep as the score was 0:9 until the 3rd inning.

Bae Ji-hwan only got on base with a strike and no out in his first at-bat in the third inning, and his early performance was quiet. In the 4th inning, with 2 outs and runners on 1st and 2nd base, Alfonso Rivas made up for it with a timely hit with an RBI single to left, and Bae Ji-hwan got on base with a walk, but the follow-up hit was missed and the spark of the chase was extinguished for now.

However, the counterattack began in the 6th inning. After back-to-back hits by Jarrett Triolo and Endy Rodriguez, Cincinnati starter Connor Phillips was replaced by Alex Young. Rivas’ ground ball put the team on second and third base with one out, and Bae Ji-hwan pulled the trigger on the chase with a timely hit with an RBI single to right. It was a technical hit made by well coping with a low curve of 81.8 miles per hour. The game began to heat up in earnest as Joshua Palacios hit a timely hit with an RBI single to right and Brian Reynolds hit a three-run run to right.

In the top of the 7th inning, when trailing 6-9, Pittsburgh finally brought the game back to square one. Jack Swinski’s single, Triolo’s double, and Andy Rodriguez’s walk put the bases loaded with no outs, and Rivas tied the score at 9-9 with a three-run, timely hit to the right-field wall against replaced pitcher Lucas Sims.

In the top of the 8th inning, with no outs on 1st and 2nd bases due to a ball hit by Reynolds and a hit by Brian Heizer, Swinski made it 10-9 with a timely hit with an RBI single to right. With Triolo on 1st and 3rd with 2 outs and a single, Rivas hit another timely hit with an RBI, and Ji-Hwan Bae also added a timely hit with 2 RBIs that split the outfield in left-center, putting Pittsburgh ahead 13-9. At this time, Bae Ji-hwan was blocked while attempting to steal third base, and his 25th steal of the season was postponed until later.

Cincinnati also launched a counterattack. In the bottom of the 8th inning, with no outs on 1st and 3rd base, Nick Martini made up for one run with a ground ball. Bae Ji-hwan caught Martini’s batted ball and attempted a double play, but shortstop Alika Williams’ throw to first base was slightly late. Christian Encarnacion-Strad then made up for one more point with an RBI single in the middle of the game, and Pittsburgh continued to trail, 13-11.

However, Bae Ji-hwan’s fantastic defense broke Cincinnati’s will to chase. Bae Ji-hwan caught Tyler Stephenson’s batted ball with a sliding catch on first and second base with one out and one out, then stood up again, stepped on second base, and threw it to first base, completing a double play. The local broadcaster did not spare praise, saying, “Nice play.”

Even in the bottom of the 9th inning, when Cincinnati had made up for one more run, Bae Ji-hwan calmly threw Jake Fraley’s grounder to first base from second and third base with no outs, resulting in the first out count. Afterwards, as Cincinnati’s batters retired with a hit, Pittsburgh was able to pull off a thrilling one-point lead of 13-12.

Aside from Bae Ji-hwan, Triolo created scoring opportunities with 4 hits and 3 runs in 5 at-bats, and Rivas played the role of the problem solver with 3 hits in 5 at-bats, 5 RBIs and 1 run. Palacios and Swinski each added firepower to the team with multiple hits.


“Call-up from late September to early October” Samsung rookie finally? 1.5-gun level Sangmu match, 5.2 innings, 2 hits, no runs, hopes for best pitching of the season

Samsung Lions rookie pitcher Lee Ho-seong (19) pitched brilliantly in a Futures League game ahead of his first-team appearance.스포츠토토

Ho-seong Lee took the mound in the Futures League Sangmu game held at Mungyeong Stadium in Gyeongbuk on the 23rd, and pitched 79 pitches in 5⅔ innings, allowing 2 hits, 4 walks, 2 walks, striking out 4, and giving up no runs.

58.2% with 46 strikes. He threw a combination of fastballs (133-143 km), sliders (124-129 km), change-ups (122-130 km), and curves (104-115 km).

He was perfect until the 5th inning, turning around 1.5-ranked top hitters. The only thing allowed on base was a heavy hit by Seong-ho Cheon in the fourth inning.

We faced a crisis in the bottom of the 6th inning when the score was 0-0. He gave up a walk to leadoff hitter Kim Jae-hyuk and then allowed a hit to Koo Bon-hyuk with one out. After two outs, Jo Se-jin walks, and the bases are loaded with two outs. He was replaced by Han Yeon-wook, and finished the inning without allowing a run.

Lee Ho-seong, who entered the opening lineup this season and had 15 days of first-team experience, is about to be called up for the second time.

Regarding Lee Ho-seong’s call-up on the 20th, Samsung coach Park Jin-man said, “We haven’t set a specific date, but we plan to raise it in late September or early October.” He added, “The Futures League schedule is set to include an eight-game series, including a double header with Lotte, in early October. “It’s being adjusted,” he explained. The possibility that this will be his last start before being called up cannot be ruled out.

He showed a stable appearance and raised hope ahead of a call-up at the end of the season.

Ho-seong Lee, who joined Samsung as the 8th pick in the second round after graduating from Incheon High School, is a player that Samsung is nurturing as a next-generation starting pitcher.

He pitched in three first-team games early in the season, allowing two runs in seven innings, with no wins or losses, and an ERA of 2.57. He has 6 Futures League games, 3 losses, 1 hold, and an ERA of 4.26.

The future of Samsung, whose strengths include stable breaking ball control and game management ability with good pitching form.

Ho-seong Lee, who increased his strength through systematic training after becoming a professional, said before the season, “I feel that I have definitely improved compared to last year when I was in high school. I seem to have gained a little weight and gained muscle mass.” He added, “The rotation and weight of the ball are definitely different from what I felt last year. “I lost. Now I feel that the ball has power and is good,” he said.

As his strength increases and he gains experience, he is expected to perform as a stable starting pitcher.

What kind of hope will the first team show at the end of the season? Interest is growing.


Kim Ha-seong, who returned, proved it with a double before returning… In this situation, the Major League’s ‘Top 5’ special player

Kim Ha-seong (28, San Diego) returned to the starting lineup after five games after overcoming abdominal pain. And in that game, he hit a double, proving that his and San Diego’s season is not over yet. He also proved that he is still a strong hitter in no-out situations.아톰카지노

Ha-seong Kim played as the starting 6th second baseman in the game against St. Louis held at Petco Park in San Diego, California on the 23rd (Korean time). It was his first appearance in five games and his return as a starter since he showed off his outstanding performance in the away game at Oakland on the 17th with one hit, one walk, and even a spectacular glove toss. Ha-Seong Kim showed that he had regained his energy by recording 1 hit in 4 at-bats on this day.

Kim Ha-seong, who had played the game fine until the 17th, suddenly felt a stomachache after the game. He didn’t think it was a big deal at first, but before the final game away to Auckland on the 18th, stomach pain got worse and he was hospitalized. It was such a complex problem that even hospitals could not determine the exact cause. While it is known that it is an internal organ problem, not a muscle problem, Kim Ha-seong’s absence period was longer than expected.

In the end, he missed the last game of the three-game series away to Oakland on the 18th and the three-game home series against Colorado. It was an unexpected period of absence. The decision was made because although the condition was improving little by little every day, it was not 100%. However, he appeared as a starter in the game on the 23rd and announced his improved condition. The fact that he played full-time shows that there are no major problems with Kim Ha-sung’s physical condition.

Instead of the familiar number 1, I moved to number 6. This was partly because they wanted to lessen the burden on Ha-seong Kim, and partly because San Diego’s ‘big four’ of Xander Bogaerts, Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto, and Manny Machado have recently shown good hitting skills. In particular, Bogaerts’ recent batting skills, which replaced Kim Ha-seong as leadoff, were at the peak of the major league’s top level.

Ha-seong Kim only hit a ground ball to third base in his first at-bat in the second inning. However, in the second at-bat of the 4th inning, when the team was ahead 1-0, opposing pitcher Hudson’s sinker was caught in the middle, so he pulled it in and made a conceded double. A well-hit ball bounced and went over the fence. It was also Kim Ha-seong’s 21st double of the season.

Unfortunately, Kim Ha-seong, who started when the follow-up hitter Grisham’s fly ball to center field, was out at third base. It seemed like a game worth playing, and the St. Louis defense’s broadcast play was good. However, the hit in the fourth inning was also a scene that once again showed Kim Ha-seong’s strength this season. This is a hit with no outs.

There are two main ways to come to bat with no outs. First of all, he is the lead batter of the inning. This is a familiar situation for Kim Ha-seong, who has played at No. 1 for a long time. Here, a high on-base percentage can increase the probability of scoring in that inning. The second is when the batters ahead have already gotten on base and there is an opportunity. Here too, a high on-base percentage can be a stepping stone to expanding opportunities. Batting after two outs is important in terms of harassing the opponent, but hitting without outs is important in that it can lead to a large number of scores for the team.

Ha-Seong Kim shows a very strong side in this no-out situation. Ha-seong Kim had 202 at-bats with no outs until this day. Ha-seong Kim performed well with a batting average of 0.337, an on-base percentage of 0.410, a slugging percentage of 0.515, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.925. In his no-out situations, he hit eight, half of his season’s home runs, and added 24 walks.

Kim Ha-seong’s no-out batting average is good, ranking 5th in the league. First place is Texas Corey Seager’s score of 0.399. Second place is Masataka Yoshida (Boston) with 0.375, third place is Luis Araes (Miami) with 0.374, and fourth place is Ronald Acuña Jr. (Atlanta) with 0.373. Although the difference between 4th and 5th place is quite large, Kim Ha-seong is showing a batting average similar to Freddie Freeman (LA Dodgers, 0.337), who is showing peak hitting this year.

Ha-seong Kim was strong even in no-out situations, and was very strong as the first batter of the inning. When Ha-seong Kim came in as the first batter of the inning, he achieved good results with a batting average of 0.335, an on-base percentage of 0.411, a slugging percentage of 0.524, and an OPS of 0.935. The batting average of 0.335 ranks 9th in the league in that situation, and the on-base percentage ranks 7th in the league.

Here, the reason why San Diego coach Bob Melvin uses Kim Ha-seong as the leadoff player is revealed. This is because his on-base percentage for no outs or the first at-bat of an inning is very high. Ha-Seong Kim often harasses pitchers with his persistent winning, and this tendency became stronger after he was promoted to leadoff. He saves his bat as much as possible and harasses his opponents. He is a type that is not common in San Diego’s batting lineup, and we can see why San Diego fans like Kim Ha-seong.

San Diego St. Louis, with the return of Kim Ha-seong, defeated them 4-2 and recorded 76 wins and 78 losses. He thought he was giving up on the season, but instead, he is dreaming of a miracle by recording 8 consecutive wins. Starting ‘knuckleballer’ Waldron pitched well with 9 strikeouts and 1 run in 5.2 innings, and the bullpen did well to maintain a 2-run lead. In the batting lineup, Machado performed well, recording 4 hits and 3 RBIs, and Soto had 3 hits.

There are now 8 games left in San Diego. Although the probability of advancing to the postseason is still low at 1.1%, San Diego is not giving up on its dream. There is also interest in whether Kim Ha-seong, who returned from stomachache, can join the 20-20 club by adding three more home runs in eight games. There are three home runs and four stolen bases remaining until the first 20-40 club in Asian player history.


I show respect” Applause for Kim Do-young who broke the no-hitter with 1 out in the 9th inning…cool! Foreigner with 10 wins

“We show respect.”

The undefeated and lucky Oein applauded the batter who broke the no-hitter. KT Wiz foreign pitcher William Cuevas quickly achieved his 10th win. On the 23rd, he started in the Gwangju game against the KIA Tigers and came close to no-hitter, but unfortunately failed to achieve it. However, he led the team to a 4-1 victory with a pitching pitch in 8⅓ innings, 1 hit, 3 walks, 8 strikeouts, and 1 run allowed. 안전놀이터

It was a game by Cuevas for Cuevas. Park Byung-ho hit a pleasant two-run home run in the top of the first inning. With one out in the bottom of the first inning, Kim Sun-bin walked and Choi Hyeong-woo walked, putting them in crisis. There was a problem with balance. At that moment, coach Lee Kang-cheol came up to the mound and gave a tip, saying, “It looks like your arms are high.” 

Cuevas immediately came to life and caught Socrates with a grounder to first base. Afterwards, he pitched a fearsome pitch. Until the 8th inning, he had a perfect streak of no hits, no runs, and not sending out a single runner. In the 8th inning, when Kim Tae-gun, Ko Jong-wook, and Byun Woo-hyuk were pinch hitters, they all hit out and struck out. 

There were 103 pitches until the 8th inning, and Scoreton was ahead 4-0. He returned to the mound for a no-hitter and no run in the 9th inning. He faced the first batter, Lee Chang-jin. Lee Chang-jin swung the second pitch with all his might, but it was a fly ball to right field. With two outs, it was his first no-hit no-run. 

The first pitch against Kim Do-young was a foul. He used a two-pitch cutter, but was caught by Kim Do-young’s swing. The batted ball flew powerfully toward the sky in left center and hit the fence. Left fielder Cho Yong-ho stretched out his arm but could not catch it. Kim Do-young ran to third base. 

Perhaps out of disappointment, he sent out the next batter, Kim Seon-bin, with a walk. In the end, coach Lee Kang-cheol ordered a replacement and made a strong decision. Closer Kim Jae-yoon gave up a run on Choi Hyeong-woo’s infield ground ball at first and third base. However, he later got the third out and maintained the victory. 

Cuevas won his 10th consecutive win of the season with this victory. In particular, he became the first foreign pitcher to reach 10 wins in his first appearance in June. 

After the game, Cuevas joked about his disappointment over the no-hitter and no run, saying, “It’s Kim Do-young’s fault.” He then expressed satisfaction with the victory, saying, “Being a hitter is a very difficult job. I also respect that hitter. It is very difficult to record a no-hit. Even though I failed today, I think I played a good game today.” 

He continued, “I was in good condition in the bullpen. The timing in the 1st inning was strange and my upper and lower body did not function properly. From the 3rd inning, the timing was right and I pitched in good condition until the end. I pointed out that my arms were high, and that helped a lot. After seeing the electronic display in the 3rd inning, “I thought about the small number of pitches and the no-hit record,” he said with a laugh. 


Jin-yong Seo 37SV → Creating new history for the club, Manager Won-hyung Kim “Congratulations on achieving the most saves”

We sincerely congratulate Jinyong on achieving the most saves.”

SSG Landers won 4-4 in the 15th game home match of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League season between the Lotte Giants and the team held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 23rd. They won by 2, overcoming the shock of Hanyu Island’s ‘virtual out’ on the 21st and breaking away from a two-game losing streak.토토사이트

The game that day was full of unexpected variables. The biggest factor among them was that while starting pitcher Kirk McCarty was fighting back with 33 pitches, 2 hits, 4 strikeouts, and no runs in 2 innings, he developed pain in his right oblique muscle and had to go down the mound to protect the player. However, SSG overcame the difficulties well.

SSG brought in Won-seok Oh to open the game, and Won-seok Oh fought back with 5 hits, 4 walks, 3 strikeouts, and 2 runs (2 earned) in 5⅔ innings, creating a tight pitching battle, and with the support of the batting line, 8 wins (9 losses). The first harvest was harvested. And on this day, SSG ‘closer’ Seo Jin-yong recorded his 37th save of the season by tying up 1⅓ innings, surpassing Ha Jae-hoon (36 saves) in 2019 and setting a new record for the most saves in a single season for the club.

In the batting lineup, Choi Hang, who played as a pinch hitter, created the ‘final hit’ with 1 hit and 1 RBI, and Oh Tae-gon was in full swing, recording 3 hits in 4 at-bats, 1 RBI, and 2 runs. In addition, pinch hitter Chan-Hyung Kim had 1 hit and 1 RBI, Guillermo Heredia had 2 hits and 1 RBI in 4 at-bats, and Seong-Hyun Kim and Kang-Min Kim had multiple hits, all contributing to the team’s victory.

Manager Kim Won-hyung gave a thumbs up, saying, “Due to McCarty’s sudden injury, (Oh) Won-seok took the mound, and he showed very good pitching over 5⅔ innings,” adding, “Thanks to him, the fielders were able to concentrate with two outs in the bottom of the 7th inning and score 3 runs.” There was. (Choi) Hang brought the momentum by hitting a comeback winning hit in a difficult situation. He played a big role in the victory. (Oh) Tae-gon, (Kim) Kang-min, and (Kim) Chan-hyeong came out later and had a big inning with a hit. “I made it,” he said happily.

And the head coach did not forget to congratulate Seo Jin-yong, who rewrote the club’s history. Coach Kim Won-hyung emphasized, “Finally, I sincerely congratulate (Seo) Jin-yong on achieving the most saves in a single season for the club, and I hope he shows a good performance in the remaining games without injury.”


SD general manager who recruited Kim Ha-seong is likely to remain in office for 11 years, “The owner cherishes him like a son.”

 It is predicted that San Diego (SD) general manager AJ Preller (46), who recruited Kim Ha-seong (28), will remain in office for the 11th year next season despite the team’s performance below expectations. .

Ken Rosenthal, an American Fox Sports reporter and major league reporter, recently appeared on the Internet broadcast ‘Foul Territory’ and said, “San Diego is facing another ‘losing season’ (winning percentage below .500), but that does not mean General Manager Preller’s “There are no signs that his position is under threat,” he said. “San Diego team owner Peter Seidler (63) still has affection for him. Depending on how you look at it, General Manager Preller can feel like Seidler’s son. Of course, it’s excessive.” “It may be an expression, but their relationship seems that good.”카지노사이트

San Diego spent $253,287,946 (about 339,025,910,000 won) on total team salaries this season, ranking third in the major leagues in this category, following the New York Mets and New York Yankees. A large investment was made, but the results were shabby. As of the 22nd (Korean time), San Diego remains in 4th place in the National League West Division with 75 wins, 78 losses, and a winning percentage of 0.490 this season. The gap between them and the first place LA Dodgers in the district is a whopping 19.5 games.

They are also ranked 7th in the National League wild card race, which is given to three teams. They are four games behind the Chicago Cubs and Miami, who are tied for third place, so advancing to the postseason through a wild card is not easy.

The report card of General Manager Preller, who was appointed as the general manager of San Diego in 2014 and has been in charge of the club’s management for 10 years, is not good. Excluding 2020 (winning percentage 0.617), which was a shortened season due to COVID-19, there was only one ‘winning season’ last year (0.549). For the rest, the win rate was less than 50%.

Reporter Rosenthal, who is considered a major league source, mentioned this point in an interview with the media and said, “If San Diego manager Bob Melvin (62) resigns or is fired after this season, as many as six managers will be hired in the 10 years since General Manager Preller took office. “I will pack my bags,” he said. “It is very unusual for general manager Preller to continue to remain in his position even under such unfavorable circumstances, and this is possible due to the affection of team owner Seidler for the general manager. I wonder what will happen after the season ends. “he said.

Even if his position is preserved, General Manager Preller is expected to have a very busy time this winter.

First of all, it is highly likely that San Diego’s ace Blake Snell (31) will become a free agent and leave the team after the end of this season. In addition, several pitchers, including starting pitcher Seth Lugo (34) and closer Josh Hader (29), can also exercise their options, making reorganization of the pitching staff an urgent priority.

The contract with central hitter Juan Soto (25) is also expected to be a difficult task to resolve. He qualified for salary adjustment for the second time this year and received $23 million (about 30.6 billion won), and will be eligible for salary adjustment again after the season ends. Soto is achieving outstanding results this year as well, with a batting average of 0.267, 32 home runs, and 101 RBI in 153 games. The salary increase rate is also a concern, but since Soto wants a long-term contract, difficulties are expected in the negotiation process.

Reporter Rosenthal said, “San Diego will not make the same investments this year in the future. However, it will not stop spending money unconditionally as it did in the past. One good thing is that many fans continue to come to the stadium despite poor performance. These fans “To repay the support, now is the time to produce results commensurate with it,” he pointed out. According to data from ESPN, an American sports channel, San Diego drew an average of 40,364 people per game this season, ranking third in this category after the Dodgers and Yankees.

Meanwhile, Seidler, the grandson of the late former Dodgers owner Walter O’Malley, formed the ‘O’Malley Group’ with his uncle and others in 2012 and participated in the San Diego acquisition, then purchased all of the shares of Ron Fowler, who was the majority shareholder, in November 2020. He rose to the position of club owner. He is the son of Walter O’Malley and the nephew of Peter O’Malley (86), who was also the owner of the Dodgers.


LG Twins, 15th largest in domestic professional sports, 1 million spectators

 LG Twins achieved 1 million spectators for the 15th time, the largest in domestic professional sports history.스포츠토토

LG announced that it was the first of the 10 teams this season to exceed 1 million spectators during the game against NC Dinos held at Jamsil Stadium on the 22nd.

LG achieved 1 million viewers for 10 consecutive years from 2010 to 2019. After the COVID-19 pandemic (2020-2022), it again boasted ticket power by recording 1 million spectators.

LG has been successful by ranking at the top of the season since the beginning of the season, and is aiming to advance directly to the Korean Series along with taking first place in the regular league.

Meanwhile, LG presented the 1 millionth spectator with a Ticket Link gift certificate worth 1 million won and a large logo ball with the players’ autographs.

Hyejin Lee, who entered as the 1 millionth spectator, said, “I missed the subway and arrived at the baseball stadium a little late, but I am honored to be the 1 millionth spectator. I congratulate LG on reaching 1 million spectators and will cheer hard with the fans until the day they win in 2023. “He expressed his feelings.


“You play like a grandmother, end the relationship.” Earning an annual salary of 42.5 billion won and having a batting average of .190… Yankees Catastrophe

Giancarlo Stanton (34, New York Yankees), the ‘glass body’ who said there was nothing to worry about as long as it didn’t hurt. Now I can’t even be healthy. Struggling with a batting average of .100, he became a huge disaster and trouble for the Yankees. The reputation of a hitter with an annual salary of $32 million (approximately 42.5 billion won) and a total of 402 home runs is beyond words. 온라인바카라

Stanton appeared as designated hitter No. 4 in the home game against the Toronto Blue Jays on the 20th (Korean time), but was silent with no hits in four at-bats. He had the worst batting performance, recording two strikeouts and two double plays each, and the Yankees lost 1-6. 

In the first inning, with one out and a chance on second base, he stared at Toronto starter Yusei Kikuchi’s three breaking balls and struck out after three pitches. Even in the 4th inning as the leadoff hitter, he struck out due to an awkward swing on Kikuchi’s low curve on the 4th pitch. 

In the 6th inning, with 1 out and runners on 1st and 2nd base, Toronto’s relief had already pulled Garcia’s slider on the 5th pitch and a grounder to the shortstop resulted in a 6-4-3 double play. He hit a deep grounder in the 3rd and was able to live well at first base. I sprinted as fast as I could, but Stanton was very, very slow. Yankees home fans booed. 

Stanton decorated the last moment as well. It ended with a double play in the 9th inning with one out and runners on first base. On Nate Pearson’s third pitch, he took a missed swing at a ball that fell low on the outside, and there was a big difference between the ball and the bat. He took a ridiculous swing and ended up pulling a low outside slider on the 4th pitch and hitting a ground ball to 3rd base, and the game ended in a 5-4-3 double play.

As of today, Stanton has a batting average of .109 (150 hits in 352 at-bats) in 96 games this season, with 24 home runs, 58 RBIs, 40 walks, 114 strikeouts, an on-base percentage of .276, a slugging percentage of .426, and an OPS of .702. Lowest batting average among 225 batters with more than 350 plate appearances. A batting average of .100 is the first in his career, and his OPS is also the lowest in his career. 

Stanton, who returned in early June after being placed on the injured list due to left hamstring pain in mid-April, has been playing without a break for four months, but his performance continues to decline. He has enough power to hit over 20 home runs, but his accuracy and production are low. He also plays outfield defense, but his range is too narrow as he cannot run at full speed, possibly due to a hamstring injury. He is not helpful in karate. 

After the game, the New York media ‘’ argued that Stanton, a highly paid player, should be dismissed under the title, ‘How the Yankees are discarding Stanton, a hitter with a batting average of .109 who is so vulnerable to injury that he plays like a grandmother.’ The media said, ‘Stanton has hit 400 home runs in his career, but he has become a problem that the Yankees need to solve in the offseason. Considering the money he gets paid, he shouldn’t be batting under .200 in 100 games or so. He’s incredibly slow at running. He went 2-for-35 with only 16 strikeouts in his last 10 games. He criticized him loudly, saying, “He is absolutely pathetic.” 

He continued, ‘Stanton is becoming a right-handed version of Joey Gallo (Minnesota Twins). But Gallo can catch fly balls in the outfield, and he’s not that slow,’ he said. ‘Stanton turns 34 in November. If the Yankees really want to win, they need to end their relationship with Stanton, regardless of the cost. Sometimes it’s necessary to give Aaron Judge the designated hitter spot. Stanton should be replaced with a left-handed slugger who has better defense and doesn’t run like a turtle. If it’s necessary to let Stanton go, do it. “Now is the time,” he emphasized. 

The media suggested an alternative that Stanton should be demoted to a bench member, remove his right to veto the trade, and then send him to a team like the Los Angeles Angels. However, it is questionable whether this is realistically possible. Stanton, whose annual salary amounts to $32 million this year, has $118 million remaining in salary over four years, $32 million in 2024 and 2025, $29 million in 2026, and $25 million in 2027, respectively. The condition is that $10 million each from 2026 to 2027 will be preserved by his former team, the Miami Marlins, but the Yankees must pay the entire amount, which is close to $100 million. 

The Yankees, who fell to fourth place in the American League East Division (76 wins, 74 losses) this year and are far from fall baseball, are uncertain about the future of general manager Brian Cashman and manager Aaron Boone after the season. Team reform is expected, but Stanton is unlikely to be the target. It is not easy to organize because of the remaining contract period and salary. The decline is so clear that it is almost impossible to find a team willing to accept him through a trade. If they fail to revive like this, it will be a catastrophe for the Yankees.


After 5 days of rest, Kim Ha-seong is about to return… Will he be able to throw a 20-20 game in the remaining 9 games?

After 5 days of rest, will Kim Ha-seong be able to throw his last game?

Ha-seong Kim returns. Although I suffered from stomach pain of unknown origin, I hit the bat and practiced fielding. He appears ready for one final spurt.스포츠토토

Kim Ha-seong of the U.S. Major League Baseball San Diego Padres suddenly complained of abdominal pain ahead of the away game against the Oakland Athletics on the 18th (Korean time). He was quickly removed from the lineup.

The San Diego team conducted various examinations, but could not find the cause of the stomachache. However, Ha-seong Kim’s pain did not go away and he was unable to play in four consecutive games until the game against the Colorado Rockies on the 21st.

He is not in a situation to ‘cheat sick’. Ha-seong Kim is only three home runs away from joining the 20 home run and 20 steal club, which can raise his value to the top level of the league. It is normal for him to endure even if it hurts. It is clear that it is too difficult for Kim Ha-seong, who is known to tolerate most injuries, to be sidelined for such a long time.

However, Ha-seong Kim is showing signs of improvement. Ahead of the game against Colorado on the 21st, he completed his batting and defensive training normally. Locally, since there is no schedule in San Diego on the 22nd, it is expected that Kim Ha-seong will take a good rest until then and return to the game against the St. Louis Cardinals on the 23rd.

There are now only 9 games left until the end of the season. It may not be an easy mission for Kim Ha-seong, who is not a typical slugger, to hit three home runs in nine games. My physical condition is also not normal. However, unless the injury is at risk of worsening, Kim Ha-seong also needs to make a game-winning move in the remaining 9 games. As mentioned above, there is a difference between a 19 home run hitter and a 20 home run hitter.

First of all, it is important to come back healthy and play as a starter. If you want to improve your game sense, you will need time to adapt to 1-2 games. Instead, as long as a home run occurs within 2-3 games, the pressure will be relieved and a lighter swing will be possible. Ha-seong Kim has not hit a home run for almost a month after hitting a grand slam against the Miami Marlins on the 22nd of last month.
