Kia Tigers infielder Kim Do-young (20) returned from injury on March 23 and played three games. Kim is batting .417 (12-for-5) with one RBI and four runs scored.
Speaking to the media before the game on the 28th, Kim said, “It’s a lot of fun. But the tension is different from the second team. I felt that the moment I lose my nerves, even for a short time, the game will be decided. I felt it yesterday with my defense, and I’ve always felt it since last year.”
In the fifth inning, Kim had a couple of bounces toward third base that he couldn’t handle. The ball ended up sailing over the left field fence. This was the beginning of Kia’s big inning in the fifth.카지노
Looking back on the previous day, Kim said, “I wasn’t ready to start against boundaries, so that’s why I got into that situation yesterday. I think it’s difficult to hit a big boundary ball like yesterday.”
Kim Do-young came to KIA and is playing third base. The coaching staff believes that his defense is not yet good enough to push out Park Chan-ho, the main shortstop. When asked about his position, Kim said, “I don’t have a big desire to be a shortstop. The people around me tell me that I can be successful as a third baseman,” he said.
“I’m not in a position to say where I want to play. I’m just trying to find my place in the team. My goal is to utilize a lot of my strengths.”
Since he doesn’t have a lot of experience as a third baseman, he said he watches a lot of defensive footage of KBO seniors. “I watch a lot of videos of seniors like Choi Jeong and Hwang Jae-gyun, who are representative third basemen,” Kim said. However, even if I have fully adapted to third base defense, I think defense is always something I need to pay attention to.”
Kim Do-young started at third base as the No. 1 hitter on the 28th. He will face the league’s strongest pitcher, Ahn Woo-jin (Kiwoom). “Since yesterday, I’ve been training a lot on image training against Ahn Woo-jin. He’s the best pitcher in Korea. I don’t think I’ll have anything to lose if I lose the game. Even if I lose, I’m going in with the mindset that it’s the main event.”
