Kiwoom’s last defense with a 2-1 lead.
Two outs in the top of the ninth.
The moment LG Kim Min-sung’s batted ball went beyond the pitcher’s infield.
Kim Hye-seong appeared안전놀이터, caught the ball, and immediately threw the ball to first base to end the game.
“Hey~ Kim Hye-sung’s defensive ability, hey~! I can’t help but admire it. How does this kind of defense come out?”
It was not easy to catch the ball…
The ball I threw while running in the opposite direction against the second base was sucked into the first baseman’s glove.
“I felt good as soon as I threw it. It felt good, so I think I kept looking forward to it while the ball was (flying).”
Colleagues who were watching nervously cheered.
“I think everyone said that it was the best ever. I think it was only then that I realized it because my colleagues congratulated me and said it was cool.”
Kim Hye-seong, the first in the KBO League to win the Golden Gloves as a shortstop and second baseman.
As far as the unrivaled wide defensive range, it is ranked 0 for the newly established defense award this year.
“(Greed) Yes. Because I am a person who is greedy for defense, I heard that there would be a defense award, so I thought that I would like to receive it unconditionally.”
Kim Hye-seong is also highly evaluated by overseas scouts.
Following her colleague and motive, Lee Jung-hoo, her dream of advancing to the big leagues is also slowly growing.
