“It’s been a while since my daughter came and I hit a home run in front of Dami. I’m so happy”
This is what Kim Min-sung (35), who hit a back-to-back home run following Oh Ji-hwan in the bottom of the seventh inning of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League match between the Hanwha Eagles and the LG Twins at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 24th, said to LG fans during an interview with Soo-hoon.
That’s right. At the game, Kim started as the sixth batter and third baseman and had his best day in front of his beloved daughter, playing two hits in three at-bats (one homer) with one RBI and one run scored.
In particular, the back-to-back home run in the bottom of the seventh inning was the highlight of the game. LG’s leadoff hitter Oh Ji-hwan hit a home run behind right field against Hanwha Lee Min-woo in the bottom of the seventh inning with a 3-1 lead. Oh Ji-hwan’s home run heated up the baseball stadium. 토토사이트
And Kim Min-sung entered the batter’s box. Kim Min-sung, who watched the first pitch, pulled a 136km cutter with great strength and fired a 115m-long home run over the fence behind the left fielder. Kim Min-sung, who hit a home run, was lighter than ever. Kim Min-sung, who stepped on the home, smiled brightly, raising his hand to the stands even before coach Lee Jong-beom’s congratulations were over. It’s because her daughter Dami was watching. He was the first to celebrate his beloved daughter.
And Dami saw 20,369 spectators chanting the name of their “Kim Min-sung, Kim Min-sung” father in one voice and smiled at his proud father. It was the most valuable moment for Kim Min-sung than any other victory.
Following Austin, Kim Hyun-soo, and Oh Ji-hwan, LG heated up Jamsil Beol with Kim Min-sung’s home run, and Kim Min-sung’s back-to-back home run was a decisive blow to ensure victory.
Kim Min-sung, who hit a decisive home run, was selected as a player after the game and took the podium to communicate with LG fans. At the meeting, Kim Min-sung said, “I think I showed you a good performance after a long time. And my daughter came after a long time, and I feel very good to hit a home run in front of Dami,” he said, expressing his love for his daughter once again.
Meanwhile, despite limited chances to play this season, Kim Min-sung has a batting average of 0.265 62 hits, seven home runs, and a slugging rate of 0.402 OPS of 0.740 and is performing like an altoran. He started the season as a backup second baseman, but when Oh Ji-hwan left due to an injury at the beginning of the season, he filled it perfectly so that he could not feel a gap in the unfamiliar shortstop position. Since then, he has played all infield positions, which has been a great help to LG. He is currently starting as a third baseman in place of Moon Bo-kyung, who was called up to the national baseball team at the Hangzhou Asian Games.
Kim Min-sung recorded his first double-digit home run (15) in seven years since his debut under the guidance of manager Yeom Kyung-yeop during his Nexen years, and hit a batting average of .300 for two consecutive years between 2015 and 2016. And he met manager Yeom Kyung-yeop again for the first time in seven years this season and made a perfect comeback.
Kim Min-sung will qualify as a second free agent after the end of this season. I can spend this winter warmly, saying that I look the same as I do now.
