He won 22-2, but his expression was dark. Ha-seong Kim (28, San Diego Padres) of the Korean national team bowed his head at the end of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC).
After the game, Ha-seong Kim met with reporters and said, “I’m sorry to many baseball fans. I will prepare to achieve better results in the next competition.” The Korean national team failed to advance to the WBC quarterfinals three times in a row. In particular, they received much criticism after losing to Australia, suffering a crushing defeat to Japan, and winning against the Czech Republic.로켓 토토
Ha-seong Kim’s sense of hitting also burst later. Kim Ha-seong was sluggish with a batting average of 0.188 (3 hits in 16 at-bats), but all 3 hits were home runs. Kim Ha-seong hit multiple home runs in the Czech match and a grand total in the match against China.
Ha-seong Kim said, “There was a burden of having to produce grades. Whatever he says, he thinks it will be an excuse. A lot of fans supported me, but I’m sorry I couldn’t live up to their expectations.”
