Bae Ji-hwan dreaming of ‘King of Stolen’… Shall we record ‘the highest number of Koreans’ surpassing Choo Shin-soo?
If you go out, they steal it. Pittsburgh Bae Ji-hwan succeeded in stealing twice yesterday and three times today. It is said that they dream of becoming the ‘King of Stealers’, but if this trend continues, the record for the highest number of Korean players may be broken.
This is reporter Choi Jong-hyeok.

Bae Ji-hwan, who stepped on first base with a heavy hit in the bottom of the 5th inning, succeeded in stealing immediately as if he had hit a double. It was perfect.
He ran from second base to third base in the sixth inning so fast that opposing players couldn’t even attempt a catch tag.
He singled and in the 7th he combined with a runner on second base and a double steal.
His 3 hits in 4 at-bats is also great, but when he succeeded in stealing every base, a witty evaluation came out that he “ran wildly”.
There are already 10 bases stolen this season.
2 overall in the big leagues.
At this rate, it’s only a matter of time before Choo Shin-soo surpasses the Korean record of 22 stolen bases, and he could win a bigger title.
[Bae Ji-hwan/Pittsburgh Pirates (last January): I want to set a record for being the first Korean, but I think the most likely is stealing based on my ability. I want to try the king.]
Bae Ji-hwan, who is known for running the 100m in 10 seconds during his time at Gyeongbuk High School, reached 1st base in 4.08 seconds on average from home.
He is the second fastest player in the big leagues.

Kim Ha-seong also recorded 2 hits and 2 stolen bases today, showing the spicy taste of the Korean Brothers, and also broke 200 hits in his big league career.
