Ha-seong Kim (28, San Diego) reported another hit in his team’s last demonstration game before returning to Korea to join the World Baseball Classic (WBC) Korean national team. In defense, he showed off his skills by digesting second baseman and shortstop in turn.
Ha-seong Kim started as the 6th batter and second baseman in the home game against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2023 MLB exhibition game held at Peoria Stadium in Peoria, Arizona on the 28th (Korean time). Then, in the first at-bat in the second inning, he reached base with a double through left-center, and then scored on a sacrifice fly for the follow-up batter. In the fourth inning he bunted toward the third baseman, but was caught on first base. In the sixth inning, he struck out and was replaced when fielding in the top of the seventh inning. Including the one hit that day, Kim Ha-seong recorded 3 hits in 8 at-bats (batting average of 0.375) in three demonstration games. 카지노
In defense, he moved from second base to shortstop during the defense in the top of the 5th inning and digested the game. He filled in when starting shortstop Sander Bohartz was replaced. Kim Ha-seong will mainly play as a second baseman for his team this season, and will play shortstop for the WBC national team. Korean second baseman Tommy Hyeon-su Edman (28, St. Louis), who is joining the national team, missed the game against the New York Mets that day.
Meanwhile, Kim Ha-seong arrives at Incheon International Airport on the afternoon of March 1st and Edmund will join the WBC baseball team on the morning of March 1st. The national team will also return from the United States on the same day. The national team will finally form a full body in the recovery training held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on March 2nd.
