Reporter Gocheok and Kim Min-kyung said, “I said this to see you in the finals while laughing.”
Ha-seong Kim (28, San Diego Padres)카지노사이트 said he really wanted to get on a plane to Miami, USA. This is because he promised to meet San Diego teammate Manny Machado (31) at the final stage of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC). Korea must pass the first round and quarterfinals of the tournament held at Tokyo Dome in Japan before heading to Miami, USA, where the final round will be held. Machado will represent the Dominican Republic in all rounds of the tournament in the United States.
Kim Ha-sung said at a meeting with reporters after the national team’s first training at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 2nd, “I saw (with Machado) in the finals and said these words with a laugh. We talked about the team’s strength and joked with each other and said those things.”
Machado was a colleague who actively took care of Kim Ha-seong from the time he first entered the big league stage in 2021. It is not even if Ha-seong Kim was the biggest help in quickly adapting to San Diego.
He has a great personality, but his ransom is also huge. Machado signed an 11-year, $350 million contract extension with San Diego on the 27th of last month. When he signed a 10-year, $300 million free agent contract with San Diego ahead of the 2019 season, a clause was included that allowed him to opt out after the 2023 season. When Machado showed his intention to “execute an opt-out”, the club quickly offered an extension contract. He received $120 million over the past four years, and including the contents of the extension, Machado signed two contracts with San Diego for 15 years, $470 million,
Kim Ha-seong boasts a reputation that is not inferior to Machado, a ‘great’ player in this tournament. The American media even evaluated the Korean Keystone combination of Kim Ha-seong and Tommy Edman (28, St. Louis Cardinals) as the strongest in the tournament. Ha-seong Kim boasts the defensive power of last year’s National League shortstop Gold Glove finalist, and Edmon is the 2021 National League second baseman Gold Glove winner. The two players are expected to build a solid center line for Korea.
After a successful Asian round in Japan, Kim Ha-seong dreams of competing for the championship trophy with his teammate Machado in Miami. He said, “Korea’s goal is to go to Miami. All the players are preparing, thinking that they can go that way. I hope to go there (Miami) and play a good game with my teammates.”
He and Edmund vowed to prove that they were the strongest Keystone duo in the tournament. Kim Ha-seong said, “Hearing those words, I think I need to do better and prepare well. If I catch a lot of outcounts with Edmon, I think the burden will be less and the chances of winning will increase.”
