‘Daegi’ Kim Ha-seong steals 30 bases in his first season as a Korean big leaguer

The San Diego Padres of the American professional baseball Major League (MLB) held a home game against the Miami Marlins held at Petco Park in San Diego, California, USA on the 22nd of last month. Ha-seong Kim ‘day’ was decided. On this day, the club presented Kim Ha-seong’s ‘Bobblehead’ doll to the audience. Unlike other players, Kim Ha-seong’s bobble head was made so that the helmet could be attached and removed. It is modeled after Ha-seong Kim, who runs so fast that his helmet flies off the field.

Kim Ha-seong, who was recognized as a trademark of his stormy running, showed off his base running sense on the world’s best stage and became the first Korean to reach 30 stolen bases in a big league season.먹튀검증

Ha-seong Kim started as second baseman in the home game against the San Francisco Giants held at Petco Park on the 4th and performed well with 1 hit in 3 at-bats, 1 walk, and 2 stolen bases. Thanks to Ha-seong Kim’s performance, San Diego defeated San Francisco 4-0 and won three games in a row.

Ha-seong Kim reported a hit from his first at-bat. Ha-seong Kim succeeded in getting on base for the first time by catching opposing starter Alex Cobb’s sinker and dropping the batted ball in front of right field. Kim Ha-seong, who stepped on first base, stole second base when the follow-up batter, Fernando Tatis Jr., was at bat, completing his 30th stolen base of the season. It was the moment when Ha-seong Kim conquered the 30-steal mark that no Korean has yet reached. The previous record for the most stolen bases by a Korean major leaguer was 22 stolen bases by Choo Shin-soo with the Cleveland Indians (now the Guardians) in 2010.

Ha-seong Kim ran to third base when Tatis Jr. hit, but his instinct to run did not break. Ha-Seong Kim, who retired with a strikeout in the second inning, completed multiple on-base runs by getting a walk in the fourth inning with two outs and three on third base with a 4-0 lead, and once again succeeded in stealing second base. Ha-seong Kim, who stole two bases in one game, recorded 31 stolen bases for the season. Kim Ha-seong, who attempted to steal 3 bases while being thrown out, did not get the opportunity as he struck out with a foul tip in his last at-bat in the 7th inning. Ha-seong Kim’s record for most stolen bases in one game is 3 stolen bases in a game against the Seattle Mariners on the 10th of last month. Ha-seong Kim ranks 8th in stolen bases across MLB.

Ha-seong Kim is expected to set a record for the most stolen bases in a single season in the United States, including his Kiwoom days. Ha-seong Kim stole the base 33 times for Kiwoom in the 2019 season.
