“I’m happy that (Kim) Ha-seong can run with my brother.”
The eyes of Kiwoom infielder Kim Hye-seong (25) shone. Kim Hye-seong, who recently met with Sports Seoul, was selected for the World Baseball Classic (WBC) and picked the best thing about playing with Kim Ha-seong. I got a chance to work with Kim Ha-seong (San Diego), who I worked with in Kiwoom as a keystone duo, after two years. These two kept Kiwoom’s infield for about three years as second baseman and shortstop respectively. 안전놀이터
It seems that Ha-seong Kim was disappointed when he left for the US Major League in 2021. Kim Hye-seong was selected for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic team, but she could not play together due to Kim Ha-sung’s absence. The two prepare to conquer the world stage together for the first time.
Kim Hye-seong is training at the home stadium of Kiwoom Futures in Goyang, Gyeonggi-do. When he was included on the WBC roster, she said, “This was the news I’ve been waiting for, and I’m so glad I was selected.” Since her professional debut, her slugging percentage has never exceeded 40%, so Kim Hye-seong, who wants to increase her long hits, said, “I’m not the type to lack strength, so I’m trying to change the way I use my strength.”
Kim Hye-seong won the Golden Glove for second baseman in the 2022 season, becoming the first KBO League Golden Glove winner for shortstop and second baseman. “There is a burden every year. I want to do better than last year. This year, I hope I can achieve what I set out to do
.” When asked what his goal was, Kim Hye-seong replied, “It’s a secret,” and said, “There are many detailed goals, such as winning the team and winning the stealing title.” Kim Hye-sung plans to train in Korea until his Kiwoom goes to Arizona for field training.
He asserted that although there are many international competitions this year, there is no problem physically. Kim Hye-seong said, “I want to participate in as many competitions as possible if I prepare well physically and become good at it.”
