This time, infielder Kim Hye-sung (24) is the main character.

2023 Magumagu Real Glove Awards held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Yongsan-gu, Seoul on the 1st, Kim Hye-sung said, “I want to improve my skills next year and challenge with pride.”

Kim Hye-sung is one of the “Preliminary Big Leaguers” selected by Kim Ha-sung, who plays for San Diego in the U.S. Major League Baseball. He said, “I think there is a high probability that Kim Hye-sung will come to the next major league.”

Kiwoom has already produced numerous players who have entered the Major League. Following Kang Jung-ho and Park Byung-ho (KT), Lee Jung-hoo will advance to the U.S. stage through the posting system. Lee Jung-hoo announced his intention to enter the U.S. after last season and took permission from the club.

This time, it’s Kim Hye-sung’s turn. Kim Hye-sung has gradually expressed his intention to advance to the Major League. This time, he even revealed a detailed plan.

Kim Hye-sung said, “I conveyed my intention (to the club). He said, “We have yet to deliver it only to the team leader and have not had a meeting with head coach Hong Won-ki and general manager Ko Hyung-wook.”

First of all, I plan to meet and talk with director Hong Won-ki on the 4th. Kim Hye-sung said, “At that time, I have to exchange my thoughts and the director’s thoughts well. I think I should express my intention well to the general manager, he said.

Kim participated in the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, and the World Baseball Classic (WBC) in March this year, and led the gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games in September. Recently, the team also won the runner-up prize at the Asian Professional Baseball Championship (APBC).

Kim Hye-sung, who went through a big international competition, said, “I feel like I have a dream every time in an international competition. The KBO League is also a good league, but I have a goal to play in another league,” he said.

He cited base running as his strength. “Hitting and defense may need adaptation and may vary depending on the league, but I don’t think the base has much to do with it. “My advantage is that I can show it without an adaptation process,” he said.

This is why next season has become more important to Kim Hye-sung. “I can’t just challenge myself with words, so I want to improve my skills and do it with pride,” he said.
