“I was cut because it didn’t help with 2 errors” The best second baseman’s shortstop attempt ended… Still, he played as DH and ended his losing streak

 I brought out the three letters ‘shortstop’ that I had in my heart, but the result was not good. He admitted that he wasn’t helpful to the team either, and he said he would look to the next opportunity. Kiwoom Kim Hye-seong (24) led the team to escape losing streak as a designated hitter, not a shortstop or second baseman.

Kim Hye-seong played as the designated hitter twice against Gocheok Lotte on the 9th and played an active role with 3 hits and 2 RBIs in 4 at-bats. He started off lightly with a hit from his first at-bat in the first inning, flew with a timely hit in the third inning, a heavy hit in the fourth, and a sacrifice fly in the fifth.

This is Kim Hye-seong, who was replaced during the game after being hit by a foul ball he hit the day before. On this day, she asked for a designated hitter despite being advised by the coaching staff to take a break, and produced the best results in almost every at-bat. Kiwoom defeated Lotte 10-8 and escaped from a 9-game losing streak.안전놀이터

After the game, Kim Hye-seong said, “It is best to break a long losing streak. She played as the designated hitter, but the other players also played well. I watched the game comfortably during defense,” he said. It’s okay to run as long as you don’t break your leg, but I thought I couldn’t help on defense unless I was in 100% condition, so I decided to play as the designated hitter.”

Next, Kim Hye-seong revealed that he played as a shortstop in 5 consecutive matches from the Gocheok Samsung match on the 29th of last month to the Jamsil LG match on the 3rd. Regarding the fact that the league’s best second baseman, who is recognized by everyone, suddenly appeared as a shortstop, a position two years ago, “I wanted to go to shortstop and do my best. However, there were two mistakes and it didn’t help the team. I was cut because it didn’t help,” he confessed honestly.

He said, “I told the manager that I wanted to play shortstop. However, he made a mistake and could not show a good figure. I think going back (to second base) is unavoidable,” he said. “In fact, the shortstop defense is always preparing. Still, he has to show it as a result, not just preparation, but it’s a pity that it doesn’t work.”

Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki also commented on the situation in which Kim Hye-seong was playing as a shortstop, saying, “The player himself strongly requested that he want to play as a shortstop. Of course you have to prove it. He’ll have to put in a performance and he’ll be at shortstop. First of all, he strongly requested it, so I will continue to send him as a starting shortstop.” He said, “I have to show my performance as a shortstop. If he’s playing shortstop and sees a bad aftermath, whether on offense or defense, he’ll have to concede himself. He has to put in good performances so he can continue playing shortstop.”

Regarding the atmosphere during the losing streak, Kim Hye-seong said, “It was not easy. She even went on to have the team’s most consecutive losses, and that part was also very nerve-wracking. (Lee) Joo-hyung was new, but the atmosphere was heavy because he had a losing streak, and it was not easy to talk about it separately. It would have been especially so from the position of Joo-hyung, her junior,” he said. “I wonder if we will have a conversation now. I broke my losing streak today, so now I’m going up again. Then, naturally, there will be more conversations with the players,” she predicted.
