Kim Ha-sung of the San Diego Padres held a press conference at the Rivera Hotel in Cheongdam-dong, Seoul on the 20th to commemorate the first Asian infielder award of the Major League Gold Glove. 스포츠토토 Kim Ha-sung emphasized that study English is the most practical advice for latecomers seeking to advance to the Major League. Lee Jung-hoo Kium Heroes and Ko Woo-seok LG Twins can advance to the Major League this winter.
Earlier, the Major League Baseball announced the 2023 Gold Glove winner on the 6th. Kim Ha-sung was multi-nominated in the National League second baseman and utility category. Kim Ha-sung took a bitter glass at second base but was honored in the utility position announced last time.
In particular, competitors in the utility sector were Mookie Betts of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tommy Edman of the St. Louis Cardinals, who had great names. Betts is the best superstar in the major leagues who signed a 12-year, $365 million about 470 billion won contract with the Dodgers in 2020. Kim Ha-sung won the award proudly, beating such a big shot.
In Gold Glove, the opinions of coaches and coaches are the most important. One coach and six coaches of each team will vote. 75% of field votes and 25% of defensive indicators will be reflected. SDI is a defensive indicator devised by the American Baseball Research Association (SABR). SDI in the utility sector was not disclosed due to its different positions.
This means that Kim Ha-sung was certified by other team staff that he performed better than Betts and Edman. Kim Ha-sung had a career-high season this year in both offense and defense. At-bat, he recorded a batting average of 0.260 on-base percentage of 0.351 with 17 home runs and 38 stolen bases with 60 RBIs in 152 games. In defense, he was responsible for 856 ⅔ innings in 98 games as a second baseman, 253 ⅓ in 29 games as a third baseman, and 153 ⅓ in 16 games as a shortstop.
