Did you feel a sense of crisis at the promotion of your juniors? KIA captain Kim Seon-bin’s start to the demonstration game is good.
On the 18th, Kim Seon-bin started as a second baseman against Doosan Gwangju in an exhibition game on the 18th, went 2 at-bats, scored 2 hits, 1 walk, and was replaced by Hong Jong-pyo. Although the exhibition game schedule is in the early stages, it is a good pace with 5 hits in 11 at-bats, 0.455 batting average, 3 walks and 2 runs.메이저사이트
He scored on Hwang Dae-in’s right-handed hit after a double in the first inning. He singled out a walk with two outs and no runners in the third inning, yielded a hit to right field in the sixth, and was substituted. He showed good hitting feeling by pushing and pulling. Certainly better than last year.
Kim Sun-bin played 11 games in last year’s demonstration games. However, from 2017 to 2021, he never played more than 10 games in a single season. Since he is a veteran, he took care of injuries and improved his condition in line with the opening of the regular season, so he had no reason to play many games.
However, following last year, this year, the schedule of demonstration games is digested. He comes in two or three at-bats every game, giving up one hit per game. He definitely looks in good shape. As well as the responsibility of the captain, he is a free agent after this season. I wouldn’t mind free agency at this point, but it’s definitely an important season for both myself and the team.
The KIA infield is fluctuating this year. Kim Kyu-seong, who transformed from Geelong Korea in the Australian professional baseball league, and Hong Jong-pyo, who made a big comeback on this day, are alternative forces in the center infield. For KIA, it is time to start looking for a second baseman successor to 34-year-old Kim Sun-bin.
In addition, if Kim Do-young plays shortstop, Park Chan-ho can also play second base, and there is Ryu Ji-hyeok, the original multiplayer infielder. Since then, Kim Sun-bin has been facing fierce challenges from his juniors. Anyway, the starting second baseman this season is Kim Sun-bin, but it is good for Kim Sun-bin in many ways to have a healthy sense of tension.
Kim Sun-bin will once again challenge for the second baseman Golden Glove this year. Kim Hye-seong (Kiwoom) became the first main character to win the Golden Glove at the same time as a shortstop and second baseman, but it is also very meaningful for Kim Sun-bin to be the second main character. If he signs an FA contract with KIA once again this winter, he will literally enter the lineage of the Tigers’ legendary second baseman.
