Lee Jung-hoo (25-San Francisco Giants) walked the path a year ago, and now Kim Hye-sung (25) is taking on the challenge .At the end of this season, Kim will be able to challenge for a spot in the Major League Baseball (MLB) through the posting system (closed competitive bidding), and she already has the club’s consent .Speaking at Incheon International Airport on the 29th before departing for Kiwoom’s spring training camp, which could be her last for a while, Kim said, “There’s nothing I’d do differently if I were to challenge the major leagues. My mindset is the same. If I want to go (to the MLB), I have to do well this season,” she said emphatically. Kim hopes to use a “parallel theory” with her Kiwoom teammate Lee Jung-hoo, who received a big league contract from the club exactly one year ago and was named team captain for the 2023 season. After last season, he realized his dream by signing a six-year, $113 million contract with San Francisco.
Kim Hye-sung, who captained the Kiwoom this season, is determined to make it to the U.S. after a good season. Kim had her best season last season with a .335 batting average (3rd), 186 hits (2nd), 104 runs scored, 25 stolen bases, and an OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage) of 0.842.His quick feet, which allow him to steal bases at any time, and his ability to defend second base are among the best in the league .To get to the big leagues, Kim said, “I think it’s important to utilize my strengths and show my appeal.” “If you have strengths in all areas, you have to show them,” he said .Kim’s training ground, Scottsdale, Arizona, is also a spring training destination for many MLB teams. Now, Kim will have to train under the watchful eye of MLB scouts. “I don’t practice with scouts watching me anyway. I don’t care, I’m going to train the same,” she said, adding, “Of course, if they come, it would be good because it means they’re interested.”
As she said, she needs to show her skills this year if she wants to make it to the major leagues. As the new team captain, she has more work to do.”Being a captain means you have to communicate well. When I go to camp, I will have a lot of work to do as the captain from the first day. I have to do a good job,” she said .Due to the team’s strength, Kiwoom will see a lot of opportunities for young players this season. “I’m still young,” Kim said, “but when I was younger, I was given opportunities and thought a lot about ‘this is not my spot’. I want all the players to cherish this moment and work hard,” she emphasized .With the loss of Lee Jung-hoo and Ahn Woo-jin, Kiwoom is expected to have a difficult season .However, Kim Hye-sung said, “You never know in baseball. In baseball, the 10th place wins the first place,” she said, adding, “I think we can win the championship. I don’t care about the predictions at all and will prepare well by playing foreplay baseball.”Finally, 카지노사이트킹 Kim Hye-sung said, “I want to make a better season than I did last year,” and headed to the departure hall.
