‘A batting average of .647’, Kim Hye-seong, whose competitor is ‘ML GG second baseman’ Edmon [Oh!Ssen Gocheok]
Kim Hye-seong (24) of the World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team continued to feel hot hitting in the practice game.
Kim Hye-seong started as second baseman on the 3rd in a practice game against SSG Landers Futures Team held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul and recorded 2 hits, 1 run and 1 walk in 3 at-bats.
Kim Hye-seong, who started as the lead batter in the first inning, got on base with a neat hit against Kim Gwang-hyun. Afterwards, Oh Ji-hwan and Lee Jeong-hoo advanced to third base, but Kim Hyun-soo retreated with a shortstop ground ball and failed to score.
Kim Hye-sung, who entered the second at-bat with two outs in the third inning, hit another hit against Gwak Bin. This time, she drove home to Oh Ji-hwan’s 1 RBI double and scored with her quick feet. In the fifth inning, she got on base with a walk. She was caught on a grounder to first base in the seventh and made a sacrifice bunt in the ninth.
Kim Hye-seong, who played an active role in 129 games last season with a batting average of 3.18 li (164 hits in 516 bats), 4 homers, 48 RBIs, 81 points, 34 steals, and . All of them became suspicious players. Thanks to her performance, she was also promoted to the WBC national team.
Even in her practice matches, she wields a hard hit every day. Kim Hye-seong scored 9 hits in 14 at-bats in 4 practice games held at the Arizona camp in the U.S., and showed off his peak hitting feeling with 2 hits in 3 at-bats in the game today. In her five games, her batting average reached 6.47 (11 hits in 17 at-bats).
Kim Hye-seong shined not only in batting but also in running and defense. In the 3rd inning without a hit on first base, Oh Ji-hwan’s double hit home and scored, and he showed clean play in defense.
However, Kim Hye-seong is unlikely to become the starting second baseman for the WBC national team. This is because Tommy Edman, who won the National League second baseman Gold Glove in 2021 as a major league infielder for St. Louis, is holding on. It is true that Kim Hye-seong is doing an outstanding job, but in reality it is not easy to push Edmund, who is active as a star player in the major leagues.토토사이트
Edmon, who is active in the major leagues, and Kim Ha-seong (San Diego) will compete for the Korean national team keystone combination, which is considered the best keystone combination in this WBC. In particular, it is not an exaggeration to say that in terms of defense, it is better than competing championship candidates such as the Dominican Republic, the United States, and Japan. Kim Hye-seong is expected to firmly support Edmon and Kim Ha-sung as a super sub.
