“(Kim) Sun-bin always emphasizes ‘one team’. If our team is complete, we are not afraid of any team. He said that we don’t need to be afraid of our opponents, but rather our team.”

These were the words of Choi Won-jun, who hit the winning run in the KIA Tigers’ 11-8 come-from-behind victory over the Samsung Lions on August 1 at Pohang Baseball Stadium in North Gyeongsang Province.

At the time, Choi said, “Today (Aug. 1), when the score was down to three runs, my brother Sun-bin told me in the dugout that baseball is played until the ninth inning, and that if you play until the end, you can win. Thanks to him, I didn’t give up, and I think we won in the end.”

KIA captain and infielder Kim Sun-bin (34) has been with the franchise since 2008, when he was selected in the sixth round of the second round. He is one of the few veterans on the current roster to have played in KIA’s 2017 Korean Series championship.

A KIA official who has known Kim for a long time said, “He’s been with us for a long time and has been working with the coaching staff, including manager Kim Jong-kook, for a long time, so he’s very aware of the direction of the organization. He’s not the type to nag the juniors. He quietly takes care of them from behind.”

On the 6th, KIA played Doosan at Jamsil Stadium. KIA won 7-1 and won its ninth straight game since June 20, 2013, or 3730 days.

Kim Sun-bin is one of the few players who has been with the team since 2013. The young player is now a veteran of the team and serves as its captain.

After the nine-game winning streak, Kim said, “2013 was 10 years ago, so I don’t have a clear picture of the atmosphere. What I do know is that I feel better now. I think it’s because I feel a sense of responsibility as a captain.”

But he’s not excited. “Every team has a winning streak and a losing streak. The streak will end someday, but I think it’s important to keep the atmosphere from going down afterward. I’ll try to keep the momentum going,” he said calmly.

He’s also leading the team’s nine-game winning streak. Kim had a seven-game hitting streak going into the day. He usually bats sixth and second, supporting the fearsome batting lineup of Park Chan-ho, Kim Do-young, Na Sung-beom, Choi Hyung-woo, and Socrates.메이저사이트

He has no body parts. After training before every game, he goes into the locker room and tapes his body. That’s how many places it hurts. There are so many places to tape that it’s hard to find him for an interview.

A quiet leader, the captain shows her support for the younger players through actions rather than words. At the end of the season, he plans to play a season with no regrets so that KIA can finish higher. As of June 6, there are 35 games left.
