Okinawa (Japan)] Kim Jae-sang (19), the protagonist of the first call-up to the Samsung Lions 1st team camp, is showing an unusual blow in a practice game.
On the 6th of last month, Samsung called Kim Jae-sang to the first team. At the time, Kim Jae-sang was training in the Futures League at Ishikawa Baseball Stadium, and among the rookies, he was the first to be called up to the first team.
He showed potential for development. Kim Jae-sang endured his hell training to the end and is about to finish.
He’s not just surviving. As he moves toward the end of camp, he’s showing a remarkable performance.
Kim Jae-sang played a big part in Samsung’s ability to break a 6-game losing streak and win 3 games in a row.
It was against Yomiuri on the 4th that his remarkable performance was played. Kim Jae-sang, who replaced Kang Han-ul as second baseman, went back and forth between hell and heaven. He failed to catch a slow grounder from lead batter Shinnosuke Shigenobu in the bottom of the eighth inning with a 2–1 lead. He made the mistake of falling backwards. Second base steals and timely hits continued, and the runner Kim Jae-sang sent out became a tie.
However, Kim Jae-sang was not intimidated. In the top of the ninth inning, Kim Jae-sang, who entered the plate with no bases loaded, hit a sacrifice fly to pave the way for the team to win.
The next day, on the 5th, in a practice game against KIA, it flew like crazy. He started second base ninth and went 2-for-4 with 3 RBI and 2 runs scored, putting him at the center of an 11-7 come-from-behind win. At the beginning of the 9th inning, when the score was 3-7, Kim Jae-sang attacked KIA Pil Seung-jo Jeon Sang-hyun and hit a sweeping double. He was the starting point of an 8-run big inning in the ninth.
And contributed to a 3-game winning streak. SSG match held at Akama Stadium. Kim Jae-sang started as second baseman No. 9 and recorded 2 hits and 1 run in 3 at-bats.
Kim Jae-sang, who withdrew from the center fielder’s floating ball in the first at-bat, got a right-handed hit at the end of the 5th inning, 1-4 behind, on first base. Kim Jae-sang, who advanced to second base when Kim Hyun-joon hit, scored a recovery point by stepping on the home base when Oh Jae-il’s timely double hit. He completed a multi-hit with a left-handed hit in the bottom of the 6th inning, which was his last at-bat, with 2 out and 1 base.
Looking at just three games, the batting average is 0.571 (4 hits in 7 at-bats), 4 RBIs and 2 runs. He is a fearsome blow sense.
After the game, Kim Jae-sang looked back, saying, “It was difficult when I first came to the 1st team camp, but now I think I’ve adapted. I feel like it’s over because I’m trying to adapt.”
At his plate, he is focused on timing. Kim Jae-sang pointed out, “Even in the game against Yomiuri, the timing in the first pitch was late, so I changed my mind. So I was able to cope with the breaking ball. From that game to today’s game, both games seemed to have a positive impact on the batting.”
There is a special reason Kim Jae-sang was able to digest his hell training. It’s because of genes.
Kim Jae-sang’s father is coach Kim In-seop of the Samsung Life Insurance Wrestling Team. In the 2000 Sydney Olympics wrestling, despite a serious injury that broke his ribs, he is the main character who impressed the whole nation by winning a silver medal with his fighting spirit without giving up. Kim Jae-sang also inherited his father’s blood and has the DNA of a sportsperson.
Because of his basic physical strength. Not stopping there, Coach Kim trained his son rigorously.
The hit showed some possibility. Now, I plan to focus more on improving the defense.
Kim Jae-sang said, “There is a deficiency in the pop fly. There are mistakes in catching the fly ball. I will make up for it in the remaining camp.”스포츠토토
