LG Twins’ 2023 rookie 1st round nominee catcher Kim Beom-seok was not included in the first team spring camp roster. Due to shoulder rehabilitation, he is in the 2nd division camp rehabilitation group at LG Champions Park in Icheon.
Kim Beom-seok, whom I met at the Champions Park in Icheon on the 17th, was quite slim. When told that he seemed to have lost a lot of weight, he said, “It looks like that. I lost 10kg… ” he said with a laugh. He continued, “I have a flexible body, but it can put strain on my knees and ankles in defense, so I lost weight because it was good to take it out.”
He is in the middle of his shoulder rehabilitation. Kim Beom-seok said, “I had a bad feeling about my shoulder while sliding to catch the ball in the weekend league last May. After about two weeks, it got better, but in September I participated in the U-18 Baseball World Cup as a national team and slid home and injured my shoulder again.” He’s hitting the batting ball,” he explained.
Kim Seo-hyun (Hanwha) Yoon Young-chul (KIA) Shin Young-woo (NC) Kim Jeong-woon (KT) Lee Ro-un (SSG), and other team members who were nominated in the first round, are attracting attention at the 1st team spring camp held overseas.
When we asked Beom-seok Kim, who is in the rehabilitation group, how he regrets not going to the first-team camp, he said, “I would be lying if I said I had no regrets, and on the other hand, there are many things to do at camp, such as bat, defense, and team play, due to the nature of catchers. He won’t have time for shoulder braces. It is important to fully recover the shoulder. I am working hard, thinking that this time will be memorable and will be the best time in my career as a player in the future.” 토토사이트
not in a hurry In the rehabilitation group, making a perfect body condition is a priority. Even during the exhibition game, you can hit normally, but as a catcher, your throwing and defense won’t be perfect. Kim Bum-seok said, “I don’t want it to happen again, so he’s heading toward running after he’s completely healed.”
Kim Beom-seok hit 10 home runs in his senior year of high school last year. This is the record for most runs in high school baseball since he used a wooden bat. Kim Bum-seok said, “I think I can do anything at bat, and I always have confidence. He said, “It would be conceited if I thought that way even outside of baseball, but when I play baseball, I play with the thought that I am the best, and I think I do better because I do that.”
When the rehabilitation is completed perfectly, he will participate in the second team game and gain professional experience. When asked about his goals for this year, Kim Bum-seok said, “My goal is to show my ability while playing in the Futures League, and to play in the first team once within this year. It is my dream to go up to the first team and play even for a short time.”
As a baseball player, the ultimate goal is to win. He said, “I have a dream to win the Korean Series MVP at LG. Personally, I want to sweep home run, batting and RBI titles. Even the Golden Glove,” he said with strength.
