“What a moment. I regret it.” Why did Bambao regret it

Professional baseball LG Twins’ Kim Bum-seok (20) vowed to rebound in the second half, reflecting on his disappointment in the first half.

“I have no regrets at all. It was great to be here for two consecutive years,” Kim said in a pre-interview interview with the Futures All-Star Game of the 2024 Shinhan Bank SOL Bank KBO League at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 5th.
Kim Bum-suk, who joined LG as a first-round pick (7th) in the 2023 Rookie Draft, participated in the Futures All-Star Game last year and won the MVP award with two hits, one home run, and four RBIs in four times at bat. This year, he has a batting average of 283 (34 hits in 120 at-bats) in 43 games in the first team, five homers, 22 RBIs and 12 runs scored OPS.793, and he has a batting average of 265 (nine hits in 34 at-bats) in 10 games in the Futures League, with six RBIs and five runs scored OPS.703.

Before the Futures All-Star Game, Kim had time to meet fans by signing autographs and batting T-ball with them. “Many fans were already here,” Kim said. “Thank you for participating in the event. Some of you were wearing my uniform and many of you liked me, so I was a little bit proud.” He added, “I won the MVP award last year, but I will try my best to become the MVP again this year.” Kim started the Futures All-Star Game as the No. 4 first baseman and recorded one hit, two RBIs and one walk from three times at bat, but the Northern All-Star team lost 5-9. The MVP went to Cho Se-jin of Lotte, who hit a three-run homer.

Kim Bum-seok, who left a strong impression by hitting a home run at a critical moment in the early part of the season, unfortunately showed his pace decline as the season continued. “The first half was really disappointing,” said Kim Bum-seok, who said, “It was a good pace in the early part, but the pace fell in May and June, and it did not help the team much. With this All-Star break, I think we need to rest and try to become a more helpful player in the second half of the year,” expressing regret over his performance in the first half.

Kim Bum-seok, who said, “My bat condition fell first,” explained, “That’s why I couldn’t get many opportunities to play. I don’t think it helped the team because I couldn’t hit even in important situations. I didn’t play a lot of defense, but I think I’m sorry that I’ve shown a few bad performances. I only had to hit as much as I did when I was practicing batting, but because I became greedy, and because I didn’t get a hit and I didn’t get a long shot, I think I didn’t have time in my mind.”

In the technical area, the cause of the team’s poor performance was also found. “I usually play with the ball in the background,” Kim said. “Kim Jung-joon said his form changed after going down to the second division three days ago. I played two games after receiving feedback from him, but the timing was good and I kept getting positive hits. So I thought, “That’s why you said that. I really appreciated it.”

“I thought, ‘It really happened in a moment,'” Kim said, reflecting on his performance in the early days of the season 안전놀이터. “Looking back, I think I was mistaken. It wasn’t like I became a really good player just because of that, but I think I felt comfortable just because I was good. I regret that,” he said, adding, “My goal for the second half is the same. My goal is to be helpful to my team. That’s all I have.”
