Kim Hasung returns home on the 2nd of next month…personal training after a break
Acepec Corporation, which is in charge of Kim Ha-sung’s agent and management, said on the 31st, “Kim Ha-sung will return home via Incheon International Airport on the 2nd of next month.”
He was originally scheduled to attend the MLB World Tour in Busan and Seoul as an MLB All-Star, but his plan fell through as he decided to cancel the game to the MLB Secretariat on the 29th. After taking a rest with my family, I will conduct personal training to prepare for the 2023 season.
Kim Hasung, who signed with San Diego last year and entered the big leagues, has won the title of the main player of this season. Fernando Tatis Jr. was given a chance when he left due to a wrist injury, and Tatis Jr., who was caught taking banned drugs, failed to join the second half and solidified his position.
The regular season report card has a batting average of 0.251 with 11 home runs and 59 RBIs in 150 games, which has improved dramatically compared to last year’s (0.2028 home runs and 34 RBIs in 117 games). Even in the postseason, he became the main player in the team’s autumn baseball promotion with his decisive performance. With a batting average of 0.186 (8 hits in 43 at-bats) and three RBIs and eight runs scored in 12 games, he broke the record of the most runs scored (7 points) in the 1984 postseason achieved by team legend Tony Gwyn.
Based on this, he was also selected as the final candidate for the NL shortstop category in the 2022 season. If Kim Ha-sung wins the award, he will be the first Korean to win the award, and even if he expands to Asia, he is unprecedented among infielders.
