‘I prepared harder than anyone else last winter…’ Kim Jae-seong, who felt pain the moment he hit, threw the bat.
On the 26th, an exhibition game between Doosan Bears and Samsung Lions was held at Jamsil Stadium. Kim Jae-seong, who was named as the designated hitter in the 7th batting order, entered the plate as the lead batter in the top of the 7th inning. Kim Jae-seong, who had not hit in the previous two at-bats that day, fought relentlessly.
Samsung Kim Jae-seong harassed Doosan sidearm pitcher Park Chi-guk to somehow get a hit. A match that went to full count. Pitcher Park Chi-guk threw an outside slider to strike out, and hitter Kim Jae-seong made a foul hit.
A problem arose at this time. After hitting, Kim Jae-seong threw the bat and touched his right side. Trainer and coach Park Han-i hurriedly ran to Kim Jae-seong, who turned his back to check the condition of his side, and drew an X with their hands to the dugout, saying that they could no longer run.
Kim Jae-seong, who failed to complete the season by dropping out of the entry on September 16 due to an oblique muscle injury at the end of last season, worked harder than anyone else during the off-season and spring camp. Before his injury, he showed off his batting average of 0.353, 6 hits, 3 RBIs, and 4 walks in exhibition games, showing off his sense of hitting. The eldest brothers in the catcher team, Kang Min-ho and Kim Tae-gun, were also saddened to see Kim Jae-sung’s injury, like a thunderbolt, while happily watching the young junior’s growth. 토토사이트
Kim Jae-seong, who joined the pro in 2015 with the first nomination of the LG Twins, is an uncommon right-handed left-hander as a catcher. Kim Jae-seong, who has been active as a starting catcher since his sophomore year at Deoksu High School, is a hitter with decent defensive skills and one-hit long-running ability with active batting. Kim Jae-seong, who wore a Samsung uniform as a free agent compensation player for Park Hae-min, who transferred to LG last season, grew up one step further by playing alongside veteran catchers Kang Min-ho and Kim Tae-gun.
Kim Jae-seong posted a batting average of 0.335, 54 hits, 3 home runs and 26 RBIs in 64 games last season, proving his presence even in limited opportunities. If he had completed the season without injury, he could have made his first 300 in his debut.
