Kim Ha-sung blamed himself for “a blow that did not meet expectations,” but was satisfied with the league’s top-class pioneer

On the surface, Kim Ha-sung (29) of the San Diego Padres seems to have lost his season record compared to last year. However, he has shown positive responses.

The San Diego Union-Tribune introduced an interview with Kim Ha-sung on the 3rd (Korea Standard Time), saying, “Kim Ha-sung was one of the most pioneering hitters in the Major League Baseball (MLB), and this stands out more this year.”

As of this day, Kim Ha-sung has played in 87 games this year, batting average of 0.226 (66 hits in 292 times at bat), 10 homers, 38 RBIs, 45 points, 16 steals, a 0.333 slugging percentage, and an on-base percentage of 0.384 and an OPS of 0.717. He had been raising the record by recording hits in the last nine consecutive games, but the record streak was cut off by withdrawing from 3 at-bats against the Texas Rangers on the 3rd.

Compared to last year’s performance, this season’s performance may look a little less impressive. While playing as the second baseman of the 2023 season, he posted a batting average of 0.260 with 17 homers, 60 RBIs, 84 runs and 38 steals, and an OPS of 0.749, in 152 games. Although he missed out on becoming the first Asian infielder to achieve the 20-20 (homerun) club, he had a successful season by ranking 14th as MVP of the National League. 고수익알바

Kim Ha-sung’s performance is improving even more as his batting eye is not shaken. He posted an excellent batting average of 0.344, an on-base percentage of 0.400, and an OPS of 0.869 during the nine consecutive hit periods (June 22 to July 1).

San Diego manager Mike Shildt said of Kim Ha-sung, “I always drew walks. Recently, however, I have narrowed down the strike zone, which allows me to make good hits. The combination is going well.”

Recently, attention is starting to be paid to Kim Ha-sung again by his performance. Major League Baseball’s official YouTube channel released a five-minute long video featuring Kim Ha-sung’s June performance under the title “Kim Ha-sung showed off his versatility in San Diego in June.” MLB YouTube introduced Kim Ha-sung’s performance, saying in the video description section, “Kim Ha-sung produced a lot of scenes of good defense in June and recorded several home runs (Ha-Seong Kim flushed some leader and hit some big home runs for the San Diego Padres in June).”
