Bae ‘adds stolen base for first time in 22 days’ Bae Ji-hwan replaced by pinch-hitter after error…PIT 0-5 Seattle

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Bae Ji-hwan added a stolen base for the first time in 22 days.

Bae went 1-for-1 with a walk and a stolen base against the Seattle Mariners on Sunday (Aug. 28) at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington, USA.

Bae, who started at second base in the No. 7 spot, drew a walk in his first at-bat in the top of the second inning after falling behind 0-3. Seattle starter Luis Castillo’s 96.7 mph three-seam fastball hit Bae on the right thigh. Bae didn’t gesture at the plate and then ran to second on a 97 mph fastball from Josh Palacios.

Seattle catcher Carl Rowley’s throw to second was high and into center field, allowing Bae to advance to third. For the record, Bae stole second and Rolle’s throw was an error. However, Palacios retired the runner at second on a fielder’s choice.

It had been 22 days since Bae stole second base in the first inning against the Toronto Blue Jays on June 6. Since then, Bae has failed to steal four straight bases. He has 15 stolen bases and five doubles on the season.

Bae led off the fifth inning with a single and grounded out to second base.

Then, in the bottom of the sixth, he made a throwing error on a double play. With one out, Colton Wong hit a grounder to third base. Third baseman Keybrian Hayes picked it up and threw to first base with a running motion to force out Jose Caballero at second, but the ball went one-bound and off the mitt of first baseman Connor Cho. The pinch runner, Wong, advanced to second.

It was Bae’s seventh error of the season, three at second base, two at shortstop and two in center field. His seven errors are second on the team behind Rodolfo Castro (eight).

Bae was removed from the game in the seventh inning. Trailing 0-4 and with two outs, the Pittsburgh bench replaced him with Castro. Bae was batting .269 (36-for-134) in the game. 메이저놀이터

Seattle scored three runs on five hits in the first inning – a Ty Franks double, an Eugenio Suarez single to right and a Teoscar Hernandez double to left – and took a 4-0 lead in the second on Julio Rodriguez’s two-run double that put runners on first and second.

Seattle starter Luis Castillo improved to 4-2 on the season with six innings of one-hit ball, two walks and 10 strikeouts.

With the 5-0 loss, Pittsburgh remained in second place in the NL Central at 26-25. The division-leading Milwaukee Brewers lost to the San Francisco Giants earlier in the day, 3-1, to remain a half-game behind.

‘The Big Three’: LG, SSG, and Lotte in Game 1 of the Korean Baseball Classic

Professional baseball, which began on April 1 and will play a total of 720 games with 144 games per team, is already one-third of the way through its schedule, and the early season report cards are divided into “three strong, four weak.

The Doosan Bears (22 wins, 1 tie, 21 losses, 0.512) are in fourth place, five games behind third-place Lotte, while the fifth-place NC Dinos (22 wins, 0.500) and sixth-place KIA Tigers (20 wins, 21 losses, 0.488) round out the middle of the pack, each within 0.5 games of each other.

The Samsung Lions (18-25, 0.419) are seventh, three games behind sixth-place KIA and one game ahead of eighth-place Kiwoom Heroes (19-28, 0.404), while KT WIZ (16-2, 0.381) and Hanwha Eagles (16-3, 0.381) are tied for ninth, half a game behind Kiwoom.

On this day, Kia’s iconic ace Yang Hyun-jong (35) reached a new milestone.

Yang pitched a complete-game shutout to lead his team to a 6-3 victory over the LG Twins in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League on Sunday at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju.

With a quality start (six or more innings pitched and no more than three earned runs allowed), Yang gave up three runs on seven hits and two walks in 6⅔ innings, earning his third win of the season.

In addition, Yang has now won 162 games (103 losses) in 16 seasons since joining KIA in 2007, excluding 2021 when he played in the American League, moving him into sole possession of second place on the all-time wins list, ahead of Jung Min-chul (161 wins, formerly of Hanwha).

Lotte scores six runs in the seventh inning, but Kiwoom rallies for five runs in the bottom of the ninth.

At Gocheok Dome, the Lotte Giants held off a late rally by the Kiwoom Heroes, 6-5.

Lotte, which has won three straight games, maintained its third-place position, while eighth-place Kiwoom, which has lost four straight games, saw its eighth-place position jeopardized.

The game was tied at 0-0 through six innings, but the tie was broken in the seventh inning.

Lotte took a 3-0 lead in the top of the seventh as Yoo Kang-nam doubled and Ahn Kwon-soo singled with runners on first and second.

Two batters later, Park Seung-wook doubled down the left field line and Jeon Jun-woo singled, followed by Yoon Dong-hee’s RBI single to push the lead back to three runs, 6-0.

Kiwoom got on the board in the bottom of the ninth when Kim Dong-heon doubled with two outs.

After two walks to load the bases, pinch-hitter Lim Byung-wook hit an RBI single to cut the deficit to 5-6, one run.

However, it was not to be as Lee Jung-hoo was caught on a pitcher’s muffed grounder.

■ Pinch-hitter Kang Baek-ho hits two RBI doubles as KT wins fourth straight over Samsung

In a matchup of foreign aces, the KT WIZ defeated the Samsung Lions 5-2 in Daegu.

KT, which is tied for ninth place, extended its winning streak to four games and moved within half a game of eighth-place Kiwoom Heroes, who lost their fourth straight on the day 안전놀이터.

KT took a 2-0 lead in the top of the second inning when Kim Min-hyuk singled and Kim Sang-soo doubled to right field with runners on second and third.

After a pitching change, Samsung got one run back when Kang Min-ho hit a solo shot to left field.

However, KT answered in the top of the third when Kang Baek-ho, who pinch-hit with runners on second and third, doubled to left-center to bring in both runners and make it 4-1.

KT added a run in the fourth inning on an RBI single by Park Byung-ho.

Samsung got one run back in the bottom of the fifth inning when Koo Ja-rook drew a bases-loaded walk.

However, the next batter, Kim Dong-jin, was hit by a pitch straight at the pitcher for an infield single, negating any further scoring opportunities.

KT got five innings of four-hit, two-run ball from starter Wes Benjamin before Kim Min-soo, Lee Chae-ho, Joo Wook and Son Dong-hyun each pitched one inning to preserve the win.

Samsung starter David Buchanan took the loss after giving up five runs on 11 hits in four innings.

■ Hanwha holds NC to ‘just two hits’ in 5-0 victory over the Dinos, who committed numerous errors

In Changwon, the Hanwha Eagles managed just two hits and committed two errors and seven walks to defeat the NC Dinos 5-0.

It was Hanwha that broke a tight pitching battle that lasted until the middle innings.

Hanwha scored the first run in the top of the fifth inning with runners on first and second on a sacrifice bunt by Lee Jin-young and an error.

Moon Hyun-bin followed with a two-run double to center field to make it 3-0.

With the game on the line, Hanwha scored two runs in the top of the ninth on three walks, a fielder’s choice and a sacrifice fly to tie the game without a hit.

NC, which pounded out eight hits, had two walks and a hit-by-pitch in its chances.

Hanwha starter Peña allowed five hits and four walks until the sixth inning, but shut down the NC bats with a no-hitter.

Meanwhile, the SSG Landers-Dusan Bears game at Jamsil Stadium was canceled due to rain.

Samsung 1R superrookie gets starting lessons…but it’s more than bitter→4 runs in 1.2 innings

Lee Ho-sung (Samsung Lions), who is undergoing a starting class in the Futures League, got his first chance to start for the first time since coming to the pros, but it was a disappointing performance.

Samsung’s Lee Ho-sung started against the Lotte Giants Futures team in the 2023 KBO Futures League on Sunday at Gyeongsan Stadium. It was the first time for Lee to start for either the first team or the Futures.

Lee got out of the jam in the first inning by getting the leadoff hitter, Hwang Sung-bin, to ground out to first base. He then gave up a hit to Jung Hoon, a walk to Kim Min-soo, and a single to Park Hyung-joon before striking out Kim Dong-hyuk to get through the inning without allowing a run.

But the second inning was a problem. Shin Yun-hoo, the leadoff hitter, flied out to center field but gave up a single to Jung Dae-sun. He then gave up an RBI double to Kang Tae-yul. Kim Se-min soon followed with a double to extend the lead to two, and Hwang Sung-bin and Jung Hoon followed suit. After hitting Kim Min-soo with a single, Lee turned the mound over to Park Se-woong.

Lee went 1.2 innings, allowing four runs on three hits and three walks with two strikeouts. He threw 59 pitches. The team lost 6-8, and Lee was left with a bitter taste of defeat.

Lee is one of Samsung’s top pitching prospects. Selected by Samsung with the 8th pick in the first round of the 2023 First-Year Player Draft out of Incheon High School, Lee is known for his reliable fastball and changeup, but his biggest strength is his mental game. He is not easily shaken.

After being named to the opening roster, Lee was removed from the first team on April 16 after going winless in three games and posting a 2.57 ERA. He was sent down to the Future for about a month. He was sent down to the Futures and had been preparing for about a month, and on April 18, he came out of the bullpen against SSG and threw one scoreless inning.

As mentioned above, he has a steady delivery and is not easily rattled. He also has excellent game management skills. “His style is really bold and daring,” said Samsung coach Park Jin-man, adding, “(Kang) Min-ho also praised Ho-sung for his game management skills. He doesn’t look like a young player. He has good mind control. I think he’s a little bold even in normal times.”

What does the future hold for Lee Ho-seong as a starter?

The Samsung Future Team also saw the faces of Kim Dong-yeop and Kim Jae-sung, who are preparing for their comebacks. Kim started at second base and designated hitter, going 1-for-3 with a walk and two RBIs. Kim Jae-sung came in for Lee Byung-heon and went 1-for-1 with a walk.


Byung-hoon Ahn jumps to a 2R tie for fourth at the PGA Tour’s Charles Schwab Challenge

Byung-hoon Ahn of South Korea moved into a tie for fourth place after the second round of the Charles Schwab Challenge ($8.7 million purse) on the U.S. Professional Golf (PGA) Tour.

Byung-hoon Ahn carded five birdies and one bogey for a 4-under 66 in the second round of the tournament at Colonial Country Club (par 70, 7,209 yards) in Fort Worth, Texas (USA) on Sunday.

Ahn, who was tied for seventh after a 3-under par first round, moved into a tie for fourth place with a 7-under par 133 total.

He is five shots behind leader Harry Hall (England – 12-under 128).

Ahn, who tied for fourth at the Fortinet Championship last September and tied for sixth at the Valero Texas Open earlier this month, is looking for his third top-10 finish of the 2022-2023 season.

After starting the day with a birdie on No. 1 (par-5), Ahn bogeyed No. 4 (par-3), but birdies on No. 7 (par-4), No. 8 (par-3), No. 12 (par-4) and No. 13 (par-3) followed.

Kim Si-woo, who was tied for seventh with Ahn Byung-hoon in the first round, was unable to make up any ground on the day, trading four birdies for four bogeys and dropping to a tie for 19th at 3-under 137.

Kyung Hoon Lee improved by one stroke on the day, moving from T22 to T19.

Lee Min Woo (AUS), Justin Seo and Michael Kim (USA) made the cut in a tie for 28th (2-under 138).

Players who shot a 1-over-par 141 through the second round also made the cut, with Sungjae Lim missing out with a 2-over-par 142, tied for 73rd with Tony Finau (USA) and Tommy Fleetwood (England).

Kim Sung-hyun also missed the cut, finishing at 7-over-par 147.

After a bogey-free first round and eight birdies, PGA Tour rookie Hall shaved four more strokes off his score in round two to remain atop the leaderboard. 먹튀검증

Harris English (USA) is second (9-under 131) and Emiliano Grillo (Argentina) is third (8-under 132).

Scottie Schaeffler (USA) shaved three strokes off his first and second rounds to finish tied for seventh (6-under par 134).

“Lesson Pro” Michael Block (USA), who made a splash last week in a tie for 15th at the PGA Championship, shot a much better 4-over-par than his 11-over-par score the day before, but finished in last place with a total of 15-over-par 155.

It’s varsity time again…and captain Park has a lot on her shoulders

It’s national team time again. The task at hand is to restore the pride that was shattered last year.

Led by head coach César Hernández González (Spain), the Korea Women’s National Team is in full training mode in Turkuye, host of the FIVB Volleyball Nations League 2023 (VNL) Week 1 tournament. Korea will open the tournament on June 1 (KST) with a first-round match against Turkiye, followed by Canada (June 2), USA (June 3) and Thailand (June 4). The team will then travel to Brazil and Suwon for the second and third weeks of competition.

South Korea suffered an embarrassing 12-game sweep at the VNL last year. Kim Yeon-kyung, Kim Soo-ji (Heungkuk Life Insurance), and Yang Hyo-jin (Hyundai E&C), who were part of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games fourth-place finish, returned to the tournament, but it was humiliating to fail to pick up a single point.

Park Jung-ah (Pepper Savings Bank), the captain of this year’s team after last year’s team, will be especially determined. She can’t let her fans down again. Moreover, the atmosphere of the first VNL is of utmost importance this year, as there will be a series of major international competitions such as the Paris 2024 Olympic Qualifiers and the Hangzhou Asian Games 메이저놀이터.

“This year, I want to come back with a smile on my face,” Park, who showed confidence in a recent public interview at the Jincheon Athletes’ Village, told reporters before departing for Turkuye on the 22nd. “Last year, there were many young players who were new to the international stage. I’m sure they will have grown a little more through last year’s experience.”

The biggest change from last year is the expansion of the staff. Broadcast commentator Han Yumi was appointed as the varsity coach, and Kim Yeon-kyung is helping the juniors as an advisor. “I’m getting a lot of help,” Park said.

Park has been working tirelessly since last year. Called up to the national team right after the end of the 2021-2022 V-League season, she was voted captain for the first time and had a packed schedule that included the VNL and World Championships. He struggled to rescue the team from its slump, but was unable to prevent the worst losing streak of his career. As a result of his hard work, he contracted shingles at the beginning of the 2022-2023 V-League season and struggled for a while. After slumping in the middle of the season, he proved his worth on the big stage in the playoffs and championship game, leading Korea Express to the top. All that energy took its toll on his body.

After the season, he became a free agent (FA) and took a break to wear a Pepper Savings Bank jersey at the highest level. But less than a month later, he was called up to the national team. “It’s true that there’s a lot of pressure, but it’s unavoidable, so I’m determined to overcome it,” he said.

NBA experience X, bad finish…how did I make the final two?

A coach’s market full of greats. The Detroit Pistons are going their own way.

The Detroit Pistons have narrowed their head coaching search to Charles Lee (Milwaukee) and Kevin Ollie (Overtime Elite), Yahoo Sports’ Jake Fisher reported on Sunday. One of these two men will be the next head coach.

The NBA head coaching job comes with a hefty salary and a lot of prestige. The 30 most talented coaches in the world are selected. That’s why Detroit’s selection is so puzzling. The quality of the candidates is disappointing.

Charles Lee, a key coach with the Milwaukee Bucks, is a well-known leader who deserves to be on the list. He’s also highly regarded by other organizations.

The problem is the other candidate, Kevin Oladipo. From the moment he was first announced as a candidate, Detroit fans were baffled. He made it from the first round of interviews to the finalists, and now he’s one of the two finalists 안전놀이터.

NBA fans will recognize the name. He was a point guard who played as a junior in the NBA from 1997 to 2010.

After retiring, he had a brief coaching career. He was an assistant coach at the University of Connecticut from 2010 to 2012, and then head coach for the next six years. That’s it. Although he had some good years at the University of Connecticut, his final year was so bad that he was fired from the program. He got into quite a bit of trouble along the way.

He is currently a player development coach in the Overtime Elite League, an amateur league.

He has no experience coaching in the NBA. He was dismissed from the college ranks for poor performance. He’s currently a player development coach in an amateur league, not a head coach.

Ollie is Detroit’s second finalist for the head coaching job. According to a report by The Stallion, Detroit general manager Troy Weaver is a big fan of Ollie and is open to the idea of him becoming head coach.

There have been some big names in the head coaching market recently, including Mike Budenholzer and Nick Nunes. There are other young but experienced NBA assistant coaches who are raising their stock, including Chris Quinn (Miami), Kevin Young (Phoenix), and Jodie Fernandez (Sacramento). The embarrassment for Detroit fans would be enormous if they let Ollie go and hired him as head coach.

There aren’t many success stories of coaches coming from the college ranks. Brad Stevens (Boston) is a prime example, and Billy Donovan (Chicago) is hard to evaluate.

The rest of the coaches have a dismal track record. The most recent college coach to come over from the NBA, John Beilein of the University of Michigan, was fired by the Cleveland Cavaliers after less than a season.

A college head coach is a risk in and of itself, and Ollie’s college track record is far from stellar. There are a lot of head coaching candidates out there, so why did Detroit stick with Ollie, and what was it about him that made them so happy? From an outsider’s perspective, it’s certainly a baffling development.

DF ‘with SON for 8 seasons’ eventually sold for 25 billion… Tottenham’s decision

Tottenham have decided to sell Ben Davies, 30.

Davies came to prominence at Swansea City and wore a Tottenham shirt in the 2014-15 season. In his first season, Davies lost out to Danny Rose for a starting spot, making just 14 league appearances. However, Davies gradually increased his playing time, especially partnering with Son Heung-min on the left flank.

There was also a crisis. From the 2019-20 season onwards, Davies was criticized by fans for his weakness in attack. However, under Antonio Conte, he was once again valued as a left-back in a three-man defense. This season, he made 30 league appearances and scored two goals.

Tottenham are expected to sell Davies at the end of the season. “Tottenham will listen to offers from other clubs for Davies regardless of their next managerial appointment,” the UK’s Football Insider said on April 26.

“Spurs are realizing that the side needs a major overhaul. This season in particular, the defense has been a major reason for their underperformance. The central defense needs to be strengthened, but they will also be looking to sign a side-back.”

In addition to Davies, Tottenham have Ivan Perisic and Ryan Sessegnon at fullback and wing-back. Perisic is likely to leave Spurs next season, while Sessegnon remains a question mark. The left flank will be revamped with Destiny Udoh returning from loan next season. 먹튀검증

Tottenham want £15 million for Davies’ transfer. Tottenham play their final game of the season against Leeds at Elland Road in Leeds on Sept. 29 at 0:30 a.m. It could be Davies’ last game for the club.

Kim Eun-Joong Ho ahead of Gambia match, number of cases to reach round of 16

Kim Eun-Joong-ho’s South Korea have failed to qualify for the round of 16 after two group games at the FIFA U20 World Cup 2023, prompting the calculation of the case for a third and final round.

Kim Eun-joong’s South Korea drew 2-2 with Honduras in their second Group F match of the tournament at the Mendoza Stadium in Argentina on Sept. 26. Despite their numerical advantage, South Korea conceded two early goals and had to settle for a late goal from Kim Yong-hak and Park Seung-ho.

South Korea, which defeated France 2-1 in the first round, now sits in second place with a 1-1 draw (4 points), behind Gambia (6 points), who have won two in a row.

Honduras is third with a 1-1 draw (P1) and France is fourth with two losses (P0).

South Korea, which secured at least third place in the group, will play its final group game at 6 a.m. on Sept. 29 against Gambia, which also qualified for the round of 16. Honduras and France will face off at the same time.

While the group stage is still up in the air, South Korea’s chances of reaching the round of 16 are high.

If South Korea earns at least a draw against Gambia, they will advance on their own. If they win, they will finish first in their group, and if they draw, they will finish second in their group and punch their ticket to the Round of 16.

The only way this could happen is if South Korea loses to the Gambia.

If South Korea loses to the Gambia and draws 1-1 (4 points), they will be ranked according to the result of the Honduras-France match.

If Honduras defeats France, they will be tied with South Korea at 1-1, in which case they will be ranked based on goal difference and goals scored.

South Korea has scored four goals and conceded three so far. Honduras has scored three and conceded four.

If the teams are tied on goal difference, the teams will be ranked based on wins, goals against, and goals for, but since the teams tied 2-2 in the second round of group play, they will be ranked based on fair play points.

Through two games, South Korea has received six yellow cards and one red card. Honduras has one yellow card and one red card. It’s unlikely that it will come down to fair play, but if it does, South Korea is at a disadvantage.

If Honduras and France draw or France defeats Honduras, South Korea will advance to the round of 16 with at least a second-place finish, even if they lose to the Gambia.

The worst-case scenario is that South Korea finishes third in the group behind Honduras. In this case, the top four out of six teams will join the round of 16 after comparing the results of the other third-place teams 메이저놀이터.

We’ll have to see how the other groups fare, but with four points, South Korea’s chances of making it out of the group are good.

In the last five U20 World Cups, from 2011 to 2019, only Portugal at the 2019 tournament failed to reach the round of 16 with four points.

In the last edition of the tournament, five of the six group winners had the same four points, and Portugal was eliminated on goal difference.

“We need to give more than 100% until the Gambia game,” said Kim Eun-joong, “Recovery is the most important thing right now. We will recover well and prepare with our best strength,” he said, promising victory.

‘6 Days of Training + 1 Day of Rest → Hell of Training + No Night Eating’ Ryu Hyun-jin loses weight with a vengeance, hopes to regain his old form

Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Hyun-jin Ryu, 36, is working hard to make a successful return from Tommy John surgery., the official site of Major League Baseball, reported on April 26, “On April 24, a man resembling Hyun-jin Ryu took the field at Tropicana Field. The man’s gait was unmistakable. His gait is somewhere between a shuffling walk and a Wild West gunslinger riding into town with his arms flailing wildly. The only difference is that he looks like he’s lost about 20 percent of his weight,” he said, referring to the weight he lost during his rehabilitation.

Ryu, who is 75-45 with a 3.27 ERA in 175 career major league games (1003⅓ innings), struggled last season, going 2-2 with a 5.67 ERA in six games (27 innings). He underwent Tommy John surgery and did not take the mound in the big leagues until his last start on June 2 last year.

As he continues to rehab, Ryu is not expected to return until later this season. Now that he’s started pitching out of the bullpen, he’s progressing faster than expected. “From the beginning, I thought it would be ideal to come back after the All-Star break and join the team in the second half of the season. That’s my goal at this point. I plan to schedule my rehabilitation accordingly,” he said, explaining his current status. notes that “Ryu has never been in better shape physically, having lost a significant amount of weight while recovering from Tommy John surgery. Most pitchers are reluctant to commit to a specific timetable for a return, but Ryu is different,” emphasizing that Ryu has a strong commitment to his rehab.

Ryu has been training harder than usual in the offseason. In previous years, he would train for three days and then take a day off, but this winter he was on an intense schedule of six days of training and one day of rest. Ahn Woo-jin (Kiwoom), who worked out with Ryu last winter, said, “I think Ryu worked out on a six-day rotation because he needed to come back quickly. It was hard for me to work out as much as I did last year, but I realized that it was fun to work out with him and that we were spending precious time together. I felt honored and always tried to work out hard,” he said.

Ryu, who is preparing for his comeback with such determination that he has drastically increased his training volume, talked about his weight loss, saying, “I prepared for the season by working hard on cardio and weight training, and I think I lost weight well by stopping eating late at night.”

With a completely different look, fans are eager to see if Ryu can overcome his Tommy John surgery and dominate batters once again this season 안전놀이터.

“30 saves – one home run…” the former save king has a goal of 36 home runs this year!

SSG Landers outfielder Ha Jae-hoon, 33, who was a late addition to the team after suffering an injury during camp, is drawing up his goals for the year.

Ha swung for the fences in the fourth game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the Doosan Bears at Jamsil Stadium on June 26, helping the team to a 14-3 victory. He’s back healthy and feeling good.

Ha celebrates his team’s first hit against Doosan’s “foreign ace” Raul Alcantara. Starting in left field and batting seventh, Ha went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBIs and one run scored.

After leading off the third inning with the team’s first hit of the game, Ha completed his multi-hit performance two batters later and scored a valuable run on a clever infield play. He added a three-run home run in the top of the ninth inning to give the team an 11-3 lead.

Coach Kim Won-hyung said, “Jae-hoon made his first start after returning from injury, and he showed good form from the first at-bat, with a home run and three hits. He gave us a lot of energy in the bottom of the order.”

Ha injured his left shoulder while playing defense in the first practice game during the second camp in Okinawa, Japan. When he returned to the first team on the 25th, he exploded at the plate as if he had vomited out all his pent-up frustration.

“I was upset that I got injured on the first day of the practice game,” he told reporters after the game, “but I was focused because it was my first start.”

“I worked out (with my shoulder in a cast). The doctors told me not to, but I couldn’t resist, so I managed my weight and now I feel like I’m back in good shape,” he said.

He had high expectations from the coaching staff during the camp, so he was disappointed about the injury, but also worried about returning to the first team after a long absence.

“I was half worried and half wanting to do well,” Ha said, “but I was confident today because I had good results from the start.”

The day before, Ha was called up to the first team and went 1-for-1 as a pinch hitter. Before the game, he showed his confidence with a “thumbs up” when asked by reporters how he felt, and it showed in the game 먹튀검증.

Before turning to the plate, Ha was a closer in 2019, when he won the “Save King” title with 36 saves.

However, he still needs to work on his outfield defense. “I still lack movement,” Ha said, but he is confident in his batting. “I don’t have any fear (of injury) anymore,” he said, adding with a laugh, “I hope I can hit 36 home runs because I have 36 saves.”
