‘Going back and forth between both dugouts’ Kim Ha-seong “I’m touched by the support of Korean fans”

San Diego Padres Kim Ha-seong training

Kim Ha-seong (28, San Diego Padres) is the busiest player during the 2024 American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) Seoul Series.

Ha-seong Kim, who played seven seasons in the KBO League of the Korean Professional Baseball League and advanced to MLB in 2021, served as a ‘Korea travel guide’ for his San Diego teammates and also provided information on Kiwoom Heroes and LG Twins players who were scheduled for evaluation games.

There were many people in the Korean dugout who were looking for Kim Ha-seong and who wanted to visit him.

Even ahead of the friendly match against LG held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Guro-gu, Seoul on the 18th, Kim Ha-seong ran towards LG coach Yeom Kyeong-yeop, who was the ‘master’.

Coach Yeom said to Ha-seong Kim, “What MLB is paying attention to is your defense and base running. If you make the most of your strengths, you will see good results at the plate as well.”

I bowed to coach Ha-seong Kim and went to the ground for training.

Throughout the training, Ha-seong Kim introduced Gocheok Dome to his San Diego colleagues by pointing around here and there.

Gocheok Dome is the place that Ha-seong Kim used as his home stadium before leaving for San Diego.

Kim Ha-seong, who is busy preparing for the opening two-game series of the MLB regular season against the Los Angeles Dodgers (Gocheok Dome on March 20 and 21), is also pleasantly accepting the ‘fatigue’ he received from the ‘Seoul Series’.

Ha-seong Kim said, “I played an evaluation game with the young Korean national baseball team yesterday, and it was really fun. I felt even better because the young Korean pitchers threw really good balls. I was so focused at the plate that I didn’t realize that my cheering song that I used in the KBO League was being played. Still, Korea “I was touched by the support from the fans,” he said.

He added, “I’m just really thankful that we’re holding the MLB opening game in Korea and having an evaluation game before that.”

Ha-seong Kim will qualify as a free agent (FA) after finishing this season.

Local media predict that when Kim Ha-seong enters the free agent market, he will sign a large contract with an annual average of $20 million and a total of more than $100 million. People around me also say, “This is the most important year for Kim Ha-seong.”

Ha-seong Kim calmly said, “There is no year that was not important to me,” and “I will do my best every day this year as well.” 성인웹툰
