Kim Ha Sung’s “First History” is right in front of me! The U.S. is also fascinated by “NL’s Jewelry, an amazing hitter in 2023”

Before the start of this season, it was not easy to predict that Ha-seong Kim (28, San Diego Padres) would achieve such outstanding results. Domestic fans were encouraged just by receiving favorable reviews for their amazing defense at the beginning 안전놀이터 of the season. But now, he is emerging as a player representing the American professional baseball Major League (MLB).

On the 7th (Korean time), Kim Ha-seong started as the first batter and third baseman in the 2023 MLB home game against the LA Dodgers at Petco Park in San Diego, California, USA, and played an active part with 1 hit, 1 walk, and 1 strikeout in 3 at-bats.

Although the team lost 2-8, Ha-sung Kim’s batting average for the season rose slightly from 0.286 to 0.287 (102 hits in 356 at-bats). His OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) was 0.839.

Kim Ha-seong, who announced the value throughout the United States, also shows a great record with ‘bWAR 2nd place’ IchiroThe San Diego game that day was broadcast nationally on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball. It was an opportunity to publicize the value of Kim Ha-sung throughout the United States.

In the bottom of the first inning, where the team trailed 0-2, Ha-seong Kim stepped up as the lead batter and stepped back with a ground ball to third base against starting pitcher Lance Lynn.

Kim Ha-seong, who was back at bat with second out and first base at the end of the third inning, who made up for one point with Gary Sanchez’s solo catcher, walked out after a full count game. Kim Ha-seong, who succeeded in going on base in 29 consecutive games, lifted the low-falling curve with a unique technical hit even with a ball count of 0-2 at a disadvantage in the bottom of the 5th inning where the score difference was 1-6, with no runners out and 2 out, and the batted ball went between the shortstop and the third baseman. It passed and led to a left-handed hit.

With this, Ha-seong Kim extended his hitting streak to 12 games, and at the same time set a multi-on-base record of 14 consecutive games.

Ha-seong Kim broke Manny Machado’s 13 consecutive multi-on-base record in 2019. San Diego is second in terms of club history. Kim Ha-seong challenges the record set by Steve Finley (18 games in 1996).

In addition, among Asian players, Ichiro Suzuki has only one step left in the 15 games he compiled in 2007. If he succeeds in hitting multiple on-base against the Los Angeles Dodgers on the 8th, he can stand shoulder to shoulder with Ichiro. Ichiro hit 242 hits in the first year of his MLB debut, won the Rookie of the Year Award and the American League (AL) Most Valuable Player, recorded 200 hits for 10 consecutive seasons, set a new record for most hits in a single season with 262 in 2004, hit 3089 hits in his career, and last year was named the Seattle honoree. He is a legendary player enough to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. It is a part of the record, but the value of Kim Ha-sung is increased just by standing shoulder to shoulder with Ichiro.

Praise and praise, “Kim Ha-seong is an NL jewel” Awesome Kim’s value re-examinedThe value is rising day by day. Among hitters who have filled the required at-bats within the team, they rank first in batting average (0.287), second in on-base percentage (0.384), fourth in slugging percentage (0.455), and second in OPS (0.839). Since July, he has been appointed as the number one hitter in earnest and is rapidly raising his score. With 61 points, he is chasing Juan Soto (65) for first place. He has the most stolen bases with 24.

Following Choo Shin-soo, he is challenging 20 (home runs)-20 (stealing bases). No Asian infielder has ever achieved 20-20. Ha-seong Kim challenges another first Asian record following Ichiro’s multiple on-base streak.

On this day, The Athletic of the United States highlighted Jonah Haim (Texas Rangers) and Trey Turner (Philadelphia Phillies) along with Kim Ha-seong under the title “Amazing Hitters in 2023.”

In particular, Kim Ha-seong was the first to mention, “In last year’s postseason, I was able to notice how much San Diego fans love Kim Ha-seong. I thought they were high-level fans.” “Ha-Sung Kim showed off his skills this season. With C+ power and B+ speed, his batting average of .284 (currently .287) should be high. As far as the price goes, he’s a gem in the National League. His value hasn’t risen too much.” he explained.

“If you have doubts because of Kim Ha-seong’s blue Statcast items, don’t believe it,” he said. “The relative ranking is not good, but he can definitely hit the ball hard. He’s hitting 34 home runs. He doesn’t come close to hitters who hit harder.”

The praise continued. The media said, “This low ratio of Kim Ha-sung only proves that he will not become Jordan Alvarez (Houston Astros).” “The ratio is only 5.8%. If he learns to use the opposing field a little bit more, 0.284 won’t be a high point at all.”

Ha-sung Kim also paid attention to his versatility. “Plus, his O-zone swing rate is excellent at 21 percent,” the media said. “He sees 4.37 balls per plate appearance. These things put him at the top of the starting lineup,” claiming that it makes sense to be employed as the number one hitter. .
