“It’s awkward even with a bat” Team captain Kim Hyun-soo’s hard face
Kim Hyun-soo, captain of the Korean baseball team, expressed his honest thoughts about his condition that did not come up.
On the 24th (Korean time), in a practice game against kt wiz held at the Keno Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona, USA, Kim Hyun-soo came out as the third hitter in left field and recorded 1 hit and 1 RBI in 3 at-bats. The national team defeated kt 8-2 and won three practice games in a row.토토사이트
Kim Hyun-soo withdrew with a ground ball to the third baseman after two outs in the first inning, and in the second inning, he recorded a fly ball to the center fielder in the second inning from the first and third bases. In the fourth inning, he hit a timely hit with one out and one RBI on third base. He was replaced by Park Kun-woo in the 5th inning.
Following 14 hits against the NC Dinos on the 17th and 19 hits against the KIA Tigers on the 20th, the national team recorded 14 hits on this day, showing off a hot hitting feeling of 47 hits in 3 games. However, the face of captain Kim Hyun-soo, whom I met after the game, was hardened.
Kim Hyun-soo met with reporters after the game and asked about the feel of the fielders’ hitting, saying, “The weather is not warm, so personally, it is still. I have prepared a lot, but the body to prepare and play is different. I can’t. I didn’t know Arizona would be cold (laughs).”
He continued, “I’m still sluggish in all respects. My posture with the bat is awkward. It’s not a little if I’ve played 3 games, but I’m still not good at adapting to the game. My opponent is also practice-oriented pitching, so I think I’m throwing something I want to try. I think you will find a sense when you face each other.”
Kim Hyun-soo has already been promoted to the national team for the 10th time. National team coach Lee Kang-cheol also believed in Kim Hyun-soo’s many experiences and took over as captain. Starting with the 2008 Beijing Olympics, he participated in both the 2009 and 2013 WBC. He also captained and led the athletes at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Kim Hyun-soo said, “As a captain, I say don’t get sick and eat well. It’s an important tournament, but there’s another season. I’m telling the young players because they haven’t experienced hardships after pouring in.”
Kim Hyeon-su, who is likely to be put into first base defense due to Choi Ji-man (Pittsburgh)’s absence, said, “We have to do something. I hope (Park) Byeong-ho and (Kang) Baek-ho don’t get sick (laughs). As long as they don’t get injured I think it will work. I have prepared everything mentally.”
