Kim Ha-seong finally received a great record with Ichiro… 亞 The highest number of 15G consecutive multi-base hits

Now, he stood shoulder to shoulder with the ‘baseball genius’ that shone in Asia. An all-time great move that will remain in the history of Korean major leaguers.스포츠토토

‘Awesome Kim’ Ha-seong Kim (28, San Diego Padres) finally tied the record of ‘baseball genius’ Ichiro Suzuki (50).

Ha-seong Kim started as the first hitter and third baseman in the 2023 Major League Baseball home game against the Los Angeles Dodgers held at Petco Park in San Diego, California on the 8th (hereinafter Korean time).

On this day, San Diego had Kim Ha-seong (third baseman) – Fernando Tatis Jr. (right fielder) – Juan Soto (left fielder) – Manny Machado (designated hitter) – Xander Bogaerts (shortstop) – Jake Cronenworth (2nd baseman) – Choi Ji-man (1st baseman). ) – Luis Campusano (catcher) – Trent Grisham (center fielder) and starting pitcher Seth Lugo constituted the starting lineup.

Against this, the Dodgers put up starting pitcher Tony Gonsolin, and Mookie Betts (second baseman), Freddie Freeman (first baseman), Will Smith (catcher), Max Muncy (designated hitter), David Peralta (left fielder), Jason Hayward (right fielder)- The starting lineup was built with Kike Hernandez (third baseman), James Outman (center fielder), and Miguel Rojas (shortstop).

Ha-seong Kim recorded multiple on-base runs in 14 consecutive games before the match. On the 23rd of last month, in the game against the Detroit Tigers, he went 3 hits in 4 at-bats, 1 RBI, and 2 points, including a home run. On the 24th, against Detroit, he had no hits and 2 walks in 2 at-bats. 2 RBIs, 2 hits in 5 at-bats against Pittsburgh on the 26th, 1 hit in 3 at-bats, 11 walks and 1 run against Pittsburgh on the 27th.

Then, on the 29th, he met the Texas Rangers and went 2 at bats, 2 hits, 2 walks and 2 runs, went 4 at bats, 2 hits and 2 RBIs against Texas on the 30th, and played 1 at bat, 1 hit, 1 walk, and 1 run against Texas on the 31st, setting a multi-on-base record in consecutive games. Kim Ha-seong, who increased, went 4 at-bats, 1 hit and 1 walk against the Colorado Rockies on the 1st, 2 hits and 1 RBI in 5 at-bats against Colorado on the 2nd, and 2 hits, 2 hits, 2 walks, 1 RBI and 3 runs in 3 at-bats including a home run against Colorado on the 3rd. Raised.

Ha-seong Kim’s multi-on-base record did not stop even after meeting the Dodgers. Kim Ha-seong recorded 2 hits in 4 at-bats and 1 walk against the Dodgers on the 5th, 1 hit in 4 at-bats, 1 walk and 1 run against the Dodgers on the 6th, and 1 hit and 1 walk in 3 at-bats against the Dodgers on the 7th.

Based on these performances, his season record jumped to .287 batting average, .384 on-base percentage, .455 slugging percentage, and .839 OPS with 15 homers, 41 RBIs and 24 stolen bases.

Ha-seong Kim succeeded in recording multiple on-base records in 15 consecutive games on this day. This is the highest record ever tied in Asia. Until now, the player who held this record was Ichiro. Ichiro made multiple on-base runs in 15 consecutive games from the Texas game on June 4, 2007, while playing for the Seattle Mariners, to the Pittsburgh game on June 20.

Ichiro, one of the best major leaguers in Asia, joined Seattle in 2001 and hit .350 with 8 home runs, 69 RBIs, and 56 stolen bases with 242 hits, creating a stir by winning the American League MVP and Rookie of the Year titles at the same time. In 2004, with a batting average of .372 and 262 hits, Ichiro set a new major league record for most hits in a single season. In 2007, when Ichiro set a multi-on-base record in 15 games, he was very active with a batting average of .351, 6 homers, 68 RBIs and 37 stolen bases.

Ichiro, who played in 2,653 major league games, batting average of .311, 117 home runs, 780 RBIs, and 509 stolen bases, boasts a remarkable cumulative record of 3,089 hits. Ichiro, who had 1,278 hits during his time in Nippon Professional Baseball, left a legend with 4,367 hits in the U.S. and Japan. He is a player who is likely to enter the Major League Hall of Fame in the future.

Kim Ha-seong, who came out as the lead batter at the end of the first inning, had an advantage with Gonsolin with a ball count of 2B and 1S.

In the bottom of the 3rd inning, San Diego’s lead hitter, Choi Ji-man, walked to base and ignited the attack, and Campusano succeeded in scoring the first run with a 2-run homer in the middle of the month. Fortunately, Grisham also continued the atmosphere with a heavy hit, and Kim Ha-seong hit Gonsolin’s 88 mile (142 km) slider with his first pitch to score a left-handed hit, giving the team a chance to score. Then, Tatis Jr. hit a timely double in the direction of center field, and both Grisham and Ha-Sung Kim scored, giving San Diego a 4-0 lead. In addition to this, Machado’s center fielder sacrifice fly was added to make it 5-0.

However, San Diego was devastated by only allowing 8 runs in the beginning of the 4th inning. Kim Ha-seong, who picked the ball for the first pitch, boasted a high-sensitivity hit when the second 88-mile slider thrown by Gon So-lin came in high in the middle, not missing it and scoring a heavy hit. Kim Ha-seong, who wrote a multi-hit before the end of the 5th inning, succeeded in 15 consecutive multi-on-base games and stood shoulder to shoulder with Ichiro’s record.

Ha-seong Kim moved busy, but it did not lead to a goal. Tatis Jr. poured cold water on the double hit that led to the third baseman, second baseman, and first baseman. San Diego conceded 5 runs in the defense in the beginning of the 6th inning, and made up for 1 point with Campusano’s right-handed hit at the end of the 6th inning, but it was not enough to make up for the score gap that had already widened to 6-13.

Kim Ha-seong hit the plate again at the end of the 7th inning when there was no runner with one out. No runner was given to Kim Ha-seong as the lead batter, Grisham, withdrew with a strikeout. The Dodgers put reliever Joe Kelly on the mound from the bottom of the 7th inning, and a match was also made with Kim Ha-seong. Kim Ha-seong picked the ball for both the first and second pitches and took advantage of the ball count, but a 100 mile (161 km) four-seam fastball came in one after another, leading to a ball count of 2B and 2S. couldn’t make it

Ha-seong Kim was able to dramatically enter the fifth at-bat. In the bottom of the ninth inning, with two outs, Campusano hit a solo home run in left midfield and Grisham hit to right, giving Kim Ha-seong another chance to step into the plate. Against left-hander Brian Hudson, Kim Ha-seong hit an 86 mile (138 km) cutter that came in on the 4th ball count 1B 2S, but the first baseman was forced to fly out and the game ended with San Diego losing 7-13.

On this day, Kim Ha-seong tied the record of 15 consecutive multi-on-base records, the most in Asia, with 2 hits and 1 run in 5 at-bats, and his season batting average jumped to .288. It seems to be approaching the 30% batting average little by little. While recording multiple on-base runs in 15 consecutive games, Kim Ha-seong is flying with a batting average of .442 (23 hits in 52 at-bats), 4 home runs and 8 RBIs. In the San Diego batting lineup, Campusano was very active with 4 hits in 4 at-bats, 4 RBIs and 2 runs, raising his batting average to .319, but his team lost.

Meanwhile, Choi Ji-man, who started as San Diego’s seventh hitter and first baseman, went 2 at-bats in 3 at-bats with no hits, 1 walk and 1 run. Choi Ji-man’s season batting average fell to .185. He came out as the leadoff batter in the bottom of the third inning and walked on base before scoring on Campusano’s mid-month two-run homer, his only harvest. In the bottom of the 4th inning, the third baseman flew out, and in the bottom of the 6th inning, a chance for a runner and second base was a flyout to the right fielder. In the bottom of the ninth, he was replaced by pinch hitter Matthew Bayton, and he lost his chance at the plate.

San Diego starting pitcher Lugo collapsed with 8 runs, 8 hits, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts and 8 runs in 3⅓ innings as he struggled against the Dodgers’ strong batting line. That’s how he suffered his sixth loss of the season, and his season ERA also jumped significantly to 4.19. Scott Barrow, acquired by San Diego in a trade with the Kansas City Royals ahead of the trade deadline to reinforce the bullpen pitching, also failed to prevent the season’s ERA from jumping to 6.64 as he collapsed with 4 hits and 5 runs in 1 inning. On the other hand, Dodgers starting pitcher Gonsolin was able to put his name on the winning pitcher thanks to the firepower of the team’s batting line despite struggling with 9 hits, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts and 6 runs in 6 innings. 7th win of the season.

San Diego recorded 55-58 with a loss on the day, and was once again far from the 50% win rate, and the Dodgers ran ahead with a 65-46 record in the National League West. San Diego is still ranked 4th on the planet.


NC · kt · Doosan · KIA, the opening of the autumn baseball survival… One team is crying!

 It is an all-time top 3 competition. 

As the professional baseball regular league race came to an end, the competition for third place with a direct ticket to the semi-playoffs (3 wins in 5 matches) heated up.스포츠토토

As of the 7th, the ranking of the 4 teams in 3rd place is the 3rd place NC Dinos (48 wins, 1 draw, 43 losses, 0.5274) and the 4th place kt wiz (49 wins, 2 draws, 44 losses, 0.5269) are ranked by a slight difference in odds without a ride. has diverged 

The 5th place Doosan Bears (47 wins, 1 draw, 44 losses, 0.516) is chasing the 3rd place by 1 game, and the 6th place KIA Tigers (44 wins, 2 draws, 43 losses, 0.506), which is on the rise in the second half, is pressing Doosan with a 1 game difference. . 

Four teams from 3rd to 6th place are in a close battle within two games.

The competition for the round of 5, which reached the final 7th in the first half, seems to have been compressed into a four-way structure with the start of the second half on the 21st of last month.

Kiwoom Heroes, who virtually gave up this season, fell to the point of competing with Samsung Lions for last place, and Lotte Giants rode downhill to 7th place.

The 8th place Hanwha Eagles also did not rise as much as expected. The ride between KIA and Lotte was 3.5 games, and the ride between KIA and Hanwha was 6 games, widening the gap between the 3rd place competitors.

This week’s professional baseball game will be held during the week (8th to 10th) between Samsung-Doosan (Jamsil), Lotte-Kiwoom (Gocheok), NC-SSG (Incheon), Hanwha-kt (Suwon), and LG-KIA (Gwangju).

On the weekend (11th to 13th), Kiwoom-LG (Jamsil), Samsung-SSG (Incheon), NC-kt (Suwon), Doosan-Hanwha (Daejeon), and KIA-Lotte (Busan) clash.

The four teams competing for third place, who share the sense of crisis that “if they are pushed back now, are over,” are expected to focus on “maintaining the status quo” first this week and then aim for a winning streak.

NC Dinos, who play visit games one after another with SSG Landers and kt, who are second among the four teams, walk the most difficult path.

In particular, it is predicted that he will pour all his energy into the weekend 3 consecutive matches with kt, who lost 3 games in Changwon hometown 2 weeks ago.

The key is whether NC’s fierce bat can crack the shield of kt, which plays strong starting baseball.

Doosan, which has surpassed the lead and is now in a position where it is not safe to finish in 5th place, also has a tough schedule ahead of Samsung and SSG.

It is of interest to see what the result of the season’s fourth confrontation between close Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop and Samsung coach Park Jin-man will be.

Doosan wiped out three consecutive matches against Samsung held in Pohang in early July, leading the season with 5 wins and 3 losses.

Samsung got 8 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses in the second half and started to finish last.

Starting pitcher Albert Suarez was diagnosed with muscle damage in his left calf in a game against the LG Twins on the 6th and will be out for 4 weeks, so he will be pushed back by Doosan in the starting fight.

However, as the pitching compatibility is gradually improving, attention is drawn to whether he will be able to take revenge in the 3-game series against Doosan in Jamsil.

Doosan was pushed to SSG with 2 wins and 6 losses and needed a turnaround.

KIA clashes with leaders LG and Lotte in turn. KIA, which has a close lead over the two teams in this season’s record, expects more than half a threshing this week.

If LG adds 3 wins, it will be the first to win 60 wins in the season, and it will advance to the Korean Series for the first time in 21 years.

Excluding 1985-1988, which was divided into two leagues, and 1999-2000, which were held in both leagues, the probability of winning the regular league for a team with 60 wins until last year was 75.8% (25 out of 33), and the probability of winning the Korean Series was 60.6. % (20 out of 33).

LG is glad that Adam Plutko, who skipped the mound last week after being confirmed with a novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19), will return to the mound on the 8th.


‘13G consecutive multi-on-base’ Kim Ha-seong’s evolution, now the Dodgers are also feared “The situation worsens after KIM’s walk”

Ha-seong Kim (28, San Diego Padres), who is constantly evolving, is now feared by the Los Angeles Dodgers, the strongest team in the National League West.메이저놀이터

Ha-seong Kim started as second baseman in the 2023 Major League Baseball home game against the Los Angeles Dodgers held on the 6th (hereinafter Korean time) at Petco Park in San Diego, California, USA, and the team’s dramatic 8-3 with 1 hit, 1 walk and 1 point in 4 at-bats. contributed to the come-from-behind victory.

Kim Ha-seong’s hit came in the second at-bat. After two deaths in the third inning when the score was 0-2, Ryan Yarbrough’s first pitch, 86.7 miles (139 km), was hit by a sinker, and he scored a heavy hit and succeeded in hitting in 11 consecutive games. However, the follow-up, Fernando Tatis Jr., failed to advance as the center fielder stopped at the ball.

In the next at-bat, his tenacity stood out. He emerged with the lead in the sixth inning, trailing 1–3, and harassed Yarbrough by striking out five consecutive fouls. He singled out one ball after 5 consecutive fouls in the middle of a 1B-2S unfavorable count, and hit a sinker driven to the center on the 10th pitch from 2B-2S and hit it with a floating ball at first base.

In the 8th inning, where Kim Ha-seong fell behind 1-3, he scored a multi-on-base streak for 13 consecutive games by picking out a walk against Yanshi Almonte, one out and first baseman. Later, when the bases were loaded due to Tatis Jr.’s walk, second baseman Kike Hernandez’s first base throw error, which came out when Juan Soto’s infield grounder, was responsible for the tying score.

San Diego defeated the Dodgers by a score of 8-3, scoring 7 runs only in the 8th inning when they were trailing 1-3. Ha-seong Kim’s pioneering eye and quick feet played a part in the big innings in the 8th inning.

After the game,, the official major league website, criticized the Dodgers’ bullpen while praising San Diego’s concentration. Among them, Kim Ha-seong’s name was mentioned twice. said, “The Dodgers bullpen gave up 7 points in the 8th inning only and collapsed.” “Director Dave Roberts appointed Almonte, one of the key relievers in the 8th inning with a 3-1 lead, but he met the San Diego lineup and struggled. couldn’t In the 8th inning, Gary Sanchez’s hit made the situation worse as he gave a walk to Kim Ha-seong and Tatis Jr., the first baseman with one out.” Ha-seong Kim did not react to the sweeper on the 6th pitch at the end of the game, which actually went to a full count, putting Almonte in danger.

In the analysis of the tie situation, the name of Kim Ha-seong came out. Kim Ha-seong, who was runner on second base in the 8th inning, quickly moved to third base when Soto’s infield grounder came out, and took advantage of second baseman Hernandez’s throwing mistake to tie the game. said, “Hernandez’s poor judgment made things worse. After catching a slow hit, he threw the ball into the Padres’ dugout, as if a difficult play was expected. Kim Ha-seong took advantage of this gap and ran from second base to home, returning the game to the starting point.”

The enemy general showed deep regret over the hunting of Almonte, who became a losing pitcher with 3 runs in ⅓ innings, such as giving up a walk to Kim Ha-seong. “I can’t say anything about Almonte,” Roberts said. He wasn’t really good today (6th). He seemed to have completely lost command. He wasn’t playing well,” he sighs.


“The first promise I made, I want to keep it” Ha-seong Kim’s ‘Hustle’

What does ‘hustle’ mean to San Diego Padres infielder Kim Ha-seong?

On the 6th (Korean time), he was preparing for a home game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He nodded his head and said forcefully, “It means something.”메이저놀이터

Kim Ha-seong left a strong impression with numerous hustle plays during his short two-and-a-half-year stint as a Padres player. The image of him sprinting after his helmet came off has now become a scene that symbolizes him.

Now, hustle play has become a word symbolizing Kim Ha-seong. Photo =ⓒAFPBBNews = News1
Director Bob Melvin also said, “If someone has to symbolize Heart and Hustle, Ha-seong Kim is the right person. It’s a really fantastic play. He deserves it,” said Kim Ha-sung, highly appreciating his hustle.

Ha-seong Kim revealed his thoughts on his hustle play, saying, “I think it should be done in the line of not getting injured.”

There is another reason why he is determined to play hustle. He added that he was trying to keep his initial promise, saying, “When he first signed, he said he was a ‘player who hustles,’ so maybe we should keep those things.”

Ha-seong Kim said at a press conference in January 2021, “San Diego is a young team and I think they do a lot of hustle play in every play. There are many good players, and I also play without sacrificing myself, so I think there will be a good synergy effect,” he said, conveying his impression of the team. I am still working hard to keep what I said then.

He said, “I don’t lose my body, I run one more step for the team, and other players will feel something by doing those things. That’s a good thing,” he said, hustle play also helps the team.

He set the standard of ‘the line of not being injured’, but Ha-seong Kim sometimes dangerously crosses that line. In his last home game against the Texas Rangers, he slid head-first into home and bumped his shoulder. He complained of pain and was substituted, but fortunately avoided serious injury.

Ha-seong Kim said, “My colleagues say, ‘Don’t do head-first sliding.’ Every time that happens, I reply with ‘it doesn’t matter’. It’s like instinct to me. It is an instinct to score. It’s the same in defense,” he explained, as plays that come out instinctively.

It is the first time that a Korean player has been nominated for the ‘Heart and Hustle Award’ club since Choo Shin-soo was nominated for the Cincinnati Reds in 2013.

This alone is significant. He expressed his thoughts on this, saying, “It is an honor for me just to be mentioned by name like Shin-soo Choo, who has made great achievements in the United States.”


Panoni, who went home unjustly, will not be expelled twice? But ‘Super Mario’ is a problem

Left-hander Thomas Panoni (29), who wore a KIA uniform as a substitute foreign player last year, heard somewhat embarrassing news after the season ended. As a player, he thought he would be able to renew the contract safely, but the news he heard was that the contract renewal was not possible.스포츠토토

It was not unreasonable for Panoni to expect a renewal of the contract. Since joining, Panoni has thrown 82⅔ innings in 14 games, recording an average ERA of 3-4 and 2.72. He didn’t have much difficulty attaching the word ‘stable’ even if it wasn’t to overwhelming grades. His grades were proving it.

He didn’t have very fast average velocity, but his walks per 9 innings weren’t high at 2.61, and he averaged 6 innings per game. He was talking about consequences, not redemption. Considering the fact that there is a shortage of pitchers in the major leagues and the upper limit on the annual salary of new foreign players ($1 million), there was no 100% guarantee of finding such players again.

However, KIA decided to find a player with a stronger pitch than Panoni and Sean Nolin, who last year were together. It was an adventure to climb higher. With Sean Anderson and Adonis Medina recruited, Panoni left Korea alone. He also had a difficult time going through the process from Triple-A after signing a minor league contract after failing to receive a major league guaranteed contract offer.

However, the relationship with KIA did not end there. KIA, who felt threatened by Medina and Anderson’s uneasy pitching, contacted Panoni again and presented a contract, and Panoni chose to go to Korea. And while still showing off good skills after re-enrollment, the possibility of renewing the contract is increasing this year.

Since joining, Panoni has played 22⅓ innings in 4 games, recording 2 wins and an undefeated ERA of 2.01. On the 5th, against Hanwha in Gwangju, he led the team to victory by making a good fight with 10 strikeouts and 3 runs in 6⅔ innings to save the tired bullpen. If his first 2 games were a process of readapting to the Korean stage and improving his condition, in the next 2 games where the restrictions were removed, he showed his strength by recording quality starts (6 or more starting innings and 3 earned runs or less).

There is no big difference between last year and the average speed of the four-seam fastball itself. However, the tracking data shows that the vertical and horizontal movements have improved little by little. KIA coach Kim Jong-guk also said of Panoni, “I think his adaptability has improved. There were some areas where he had difficulties while rotating in the second half, but he threw 6 innings steadily.” It comes in well. The trajectory is almost the same as the four-seam. I feel that the movement has improved for both the four-seam and the cutter.”

Veteran catcher Kim Tae-goon, who received the ball from Panoni on the 5th, also praised the ball for being more powerful than it looks. It is a ball with an average speed of 140 km per hour, so the physical restraint is not that fast, but it has more power than restraint.

Kim Tae-gun said, “There is something that touches me a little more than restraint. Here is the cutter.” It’s not an absolutely fast ball, so it’s visible, so batters’ bats go out, but because it moves well, it induces a lot of hits and misses. In fact, Panoni’s strikeouts per 9 innings improved from 7.95 last year to 9.27 this year. Fireballer-class strikeout ability.

It is KIA that struggled greatly after changing all foreigners this year. If Panoni plays such an active role, there is a high possibility that a spot for a foreign pitcher next year will be decided early. First of all, there is a big difference between carrying a card that has been clearly verified and not carrying it. However, the concern lies elsewhere.

Sanchez, who was called by KIA after working as the highest level pitcher in the Taiwanese league, raised expectations by making an outstanding performance with 10 strikeouts and 1 run in 6⅓ innings against kt on July 9, which was his first appearance. Although he gave up 4 runs against Doosan on July 21, he showed his power with 10 strikeouts in 6⅔ innings. But lately it’s been sluggish. After collapsing with 10 hits and 7 runs in 4 innings against Samsung on the 1st, he failed to fill another 5 innings with 5 hits, 4 walks, 6 strikeouts and 4 runs in 4⅓ innings against Hanwha in Gwangju on the 6th.

Sanchez was also praised for his power on the ball, although he is not a fast-paced player. He also has many pitches he can throw, such as slider‧cutter‧sweeper‧changeup. However, after 2S, he is struggling a bit in the game, and the pattern of winning the deciding ball is becoming clear as the opponent batters read the strengths.

KIA is the team with the most games remaining among the 10 clubs. When the starting rotation is stable, they can plan a counterattack in the second half. To make matters worse, it is all the more so considering that Eui-ri Lee is missing from the Asian Games schedule. Panoni as well as Sanchez have to do their part to survive, but if even one player goes wrong, the burden on the bullpen will increase and the last minute schedule will inevitably become burdensome. Although it is still five games, Sanchez’s average ERA for the season is 6.49, which is no better than Medina (6.05), who was expelled.


“I learned sliding in the US…” Summons Choo Shin-soo’s memories, Kim Ha-seong set a new record for Korean steals “Only things to get better” Thumbs up

On the day Ha-seong Kim (28, San Diego Padres) broke his own record in the Major League (MLB), Shin-soo Choo (41, SSG Landers) set the record for the most hits in his career in Korea. He also had a different mindset when looking at his juniors.스포츠토토

After the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO league away game (9-6 victory) with the Lotte Giants held at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 5th, Choo Shin-soo said, “I saw (Kim Ha-sung’s stolen base record) as an article,” and said, “Only things left to get better in the future, and it was nice to see.” “He praised his junior’s performance.

On the 5th (Korean time), Ha-seong Kim played as the first batter and second baseman in the 2023 Major League home game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Petco Park in San Diego, California, USA, recording 2 hits, 1 walk, and 2 steals in 4 at-bats.

Kim Ha-seong succeeded in getting on base from the first at-bat at the end of the first inning. He technically attacked Dodgers starter Bobby Miller’s 4th low breaking ball and went to 1st base with a hit that slightly exceeded the height of 2nd baseman. Then, he stole second base from Juan Soto at bat in third and succeeded in stealing his 23rd base of the season. With this, Kim Ha-seong broke the record for the most stolen bases (22 steals) by a Korean major leaguer in one season, set by Choo Shin-soo (then Cleveland) in 2010, for the first time in 13 years.

In the meantime, Kim Ha-seong survived with a bullet-like hit in the second at-bat, and this time also stole second base and recorded the 24th base steal of the season. From then on, every base stolen by Kim Ha-seong this season becomes a new history of the Korean league.

The heart of the senior who saw this couldn’t help but be happy. Choo Shin-soo said, “Records are always there for someone to break.” At the same time, he was convinced, “In the case of Kim Ha-seong, he is a very fast and good player in Korea, so I think he will steal more bases.”

In fact, Choo Shin-soo said he learned about juru only after he went to the United States. At first, he joined the Seattle Mariners as a pitcher and confessed, “I was a pitcher and then changed to a hitter. I also learned sliding in the United States. Before that, I couldn’t even slide.” On the other hand, Kim Ha-seong, who grew up as a professional infielder, recorded 22 steals from the second year of the KBO (2015) and stole 134 bases in his career before advancing to the United States.

Conversely, it can be said that it is great that Choo Shin-soo showed a hot-tempered aspect in the big leagues. Shin-soo Choo, who entered the American stage in 2001, stole 12 bases in the rookie league from his first year, and stole 37 bases in single A the following year. In 2004, when he was about to be called up to the major leagues, he stole 40 times in Double-A.
Since then, Choo Shin-soo stepped on the big league stage in 2005 and started stealing bases in earnest in 2009. Joining the 20-20 club with 20 home runs and 21 stolen bases that year, he subsequently recorded 20 or more steals in four of his five seasons through 2013. Achieving 20-20 on three occasions was a bonus. Since joining Texas in 2014, his steal attempts have decreased, but his success rate has not been bad. In 2019, he stole 15 bases in 16 attempts.

Ha-seong Kim is the player who follows Shin-soo Choo’s hot-tempered side. Having achieved the 20-20 club twice in Korea (2016 and 2020), his home runs and stolen bases are increasing year after year after advancing to the United States. He recorded 8 home runs and 6 steals in 2021, 11 home runs and 12 steals last year, and this year, he is achieving 15 home runs and 24 steals as of the 5th. At this rate, it is possible to become the first Asian infielder to achieve 20-20.

In addition, Ha-seong Kim is showing off his top-notch skills in the league in defense, where Shin-soo Choo was somewhat weak. Choo Shin-soo couldn’t help but be happy to see a junior following his own path.


‘A knife rampage, even a baseball field?’ KBO safely finishes Daegu game amid increased security

Vigilance has been strengthened in preparation for the possibility that a recent shooting rampage in a downtown area could also occur at a professional baseball stadium.메이저놀이터

On the 5th, the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) said, “Safety personnel such as Daegu Police Agency, Daegu Suseong Police Station, riot police, special forces, local police, detectives, special forces, etc. “We have strengthened safety management for spectators by placing them in and around this stadium.” On this day, a Samsung-LG match was held at the Daegu Samsung Lions Park in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’, and an article foretelling a riot with a weapon was posted in the ‘Cheer’ corner of the KBO’s official application.

KBO sent an official letter to each club on the 4th, requesting thorough preparation for crime and strengthening overall stadium safety management, such as strengthening security checks when entering spectators, deploying additional safety personnel, and strengthening cooperation with related organizations such as police and fire departments. This is a measure in response to the recent occurrence of heinous crimes targeting an unspecified number of people at Sillim Station in Seoul and Seohyeon Station in Seongnam City, Gyeonggi Province.

Accordingly, before the game on the 5th, each club strengthened measures for the safety of spectators, such as deploying their own security personnel. At Daegu Stadium, where the report was received, additional police personnel from the Suseong Police Station, the jurisdictional police station, were deployed along with the Samsung club’s own security manpower increase.

First of all, the game went ahead as scheduled, as no unusual incidents related to the crime were found. KBO said, “With the cooperation of the Samsung club and the police, the game ended normally without an accident, and the audience safely exited under the protection of security personnel.”

KBO emphasized, “We will continue to take all necessary measures to ensure the safety of spectators, such as strengthening security screening using metal detectors when entering the stadium, additional deployment of safety personnel, and strengthening cooperation with related organizations.”


“Doyoung and Dongju do well and KIA wins~” The curtain rises for the Moon Kim Daejeon… Pleasant battle of nerves 

“Doyoung and Dongju do well, and we (KIA) win~” The

historic first round of the MoonKim Daejeon is held. On the 6th, the last game of the weekend 3 series between KIA and Hanwha will be held at KIA Champions Field in Gwangju. It is the first professional first match between Moon Dong-ju (Hanwha) and Kim Do-young (KIA), who have been in their second year together. It is also noteworthy that the first confrontation between super-stars from Gwangju will be held in Gwangju.

Kim Do-young스포츠토토 shows the reason for KIA’s choice. Last year, I had difficulty adapting to the first team, and this year I took a break for three months due to a metatarsal injury. Even a month and a half after his comeback, he proved to be the best in athletics and skill among infielders of his age. He is a beauty in all directions, including his contact, slugging power, main power, and defense. It’s not for nothing that I hear that I’m the second Lee Jong-beom.

Moon Dong-ju is also cruising. He struggled with injuries last year, and has not played full-time yet, so he is receiving special protection from the club. Coach Won-ho Choi expressed his personal opinion that it was necessary to take a medical opinion, but in any case, the season is automatically out when about 120 innings are filled. It is evaluated that he is in his second year of running the game, using a fastball in the late 150km range and using a breaking ball.

The first confrontation that took place after a year and a half of entering the pro due to various reasons such as injury and rotation. Both KIA coach Kim Jong-guk and Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho expressed their expectations. Then, wittily, his arm bent inward. Coach Won-ho Choi said, “It’s a good match for the success of baseball,” ahead of the game on the 4th. Then he laughed and said, “I hope Kim Do-young gets a hit and Dong-joo becomes the winning pitcher. Then, wouldn’t the two of them be in a tie?”

Director Kim Jong-guk is, of course, ‘same as the same dream’. He said, “It’s very interesting” ahead of the game on the 5th. He also laughed and said, “Dong-joo and Do-young are doing well, and the result is that we win.” It would be nice for both of them to do well, but it would be better if Moon Dong-ju did not become a winning pitcher as coach Choi Won-ho intended.

How will the result come out? Recently, Doyoung Kim has a very good batting pace. In the game on the 5th, for the first time since his debut, he went out to bat 3 times and hit the right time. Choi Hyung-woo and Socrates Brito are expected to return to the second batter in the game on the 6th, when they will return to the lineup. The interest is in how Kim Do-young, who shows off his unique athletic ability, will respond to Mun Dong-ju’s unique mid-150km fastball.

On the contrary, for Moon Dong-ju, blocking the triple setter leading to No. 9 Park Chan-ho ~ No. 1 Choi Won-jun ~ No. 2 Kim Do-young is the biggest homework for the KIA game. Although the limit of 120 innings (93 innings until the match against Doosan in Daejeon on the 1st) is getting closer, there is a high possibility that the game will proceed as soon as the Hanhwa is released if Moon Dong-joo needs a lot of innings.

Director Kim Jong-guk told me the correct answer. He said, “The conscious side loses. You shouldn’t be conscious of the head-to-head match.” Kim Do-young, whom I met briefly after the game on the 5th, said, “I don’t care too much. Recently, I haven’t been in contact with Dong-ju because we’ve been doing our own things.”
