Infielder Kim Hye-seong (24, Kiwoom Heroes) of the World Baseball Classic (WBC) baseball team showed her true value in a practice game. The command tower fell into happy troubles.
The WBC team was scheduled to play a practice match against the LG Twins at the Veterans Memorial Stadium in Kino, Tucson, Arizona on the 27th (Korean time).
However, the match was canceled due to bad weather. The national team headed to Korea without being able to digest the last practice game. 토토사이트
The national team won all four practice matches. It defeated KT Wiz (8-2, 9-0) twice, and also defeated NC Dinos (8-2) and KIA Tigers (12-6) in succession.
In particular, the batting sensation was fierce. In four games, he exploded a whopping 37 points and drove a total of 64 hits. At the center was Kim Hye-seong, who led the lower batting line.
Kim Hye-seong started 3 out of 4 games and recorded a batting average of 0.643 (9 hits in 14 at-bats), 4 RBIs, 1 walk, and 2 runs, showing off a high-sensitivity hit. He swung 3 hits in 3 at-bats against KIA on the 20th and 4 hits against KT on the 25th.
Ha-seong Kim (San Diego Padres) and Tommy Edman (St. Louis Cardinals), who are called the strongest keystone combination of the national team, could not join the national team training camp in the United States this time. The big leaguer duo is improving their condition in their team’s spring camp.
In the practice game, the national team filled the vacancy with back-up infielders Kim Hye-seong and Oh Ji-hwan. In particular, Kim Hye-seong showed a good performance in both offense and defense, completely filling Edmund’s void.
Ha-seong Kim and Edman arrive in Korea on March 1st and will join the national team on the 2nd. Even if Kim Hye-seong maintains a hot hitting feeling in the future, it will not be easy to overcome the wall between Kim Ha-seong and Edmon.
However, variables exist in any situation. Kim Hye-seong quickly raised his condition, and is always on standby for a sortie. Kim Hye-seong, who has 3 gongsooju, is highly usable. Lee Kang-cheol-ho’s infield team deserves to be called the best of all time.
