was also the first time in my life that I encountered the ‘hitting machine’ that had scored 2,231 hits in the KBO League. LG confirmed its regular season championship on the 3rd. LG, which won the regular season championship in 1994, needed 29 years to regain supremacy.스포츠토토
Kim Hyun-soo (35), who has long been renowned as LG’s spiritual leader and ‘hitting machine’, also experienced winning in the regular season for the first time. Kim Hyun-soo, who debuted at Doosan in 2006, has extensive experience playing in the Korean Series in 2007, 2008, 2013, and 2015, but he has never won the regular season and advanced directly to the Korean Series.
Kim Hyun-soo, who said, “It feels different from winning the Korean Series,” said, “First of all, I think it’s an honor to be able to participate in the Korean Series. It’s a good thing to win the regular season and be in the spotlight like this.” He added, “The most important thing is that LG won 5 “We are participating in fall baseball for five consecutive years. I think the players have improved by continuing to participate in fall baseball. I am proud of participating in fall baseball for five consecutive years and taking first place in the regular season,” he said.
Even now, LG’s last Korean Series victory was in 1994. Hyunsoo Kim was a first grader in elementary school in 1994. Kim Hyun-soo, who reminisced at the time, smiled and said, “There is no way I didn’t watch the 1994 Korean Series.” Regarding the opportunity to recreate the glory of 1994, he said, “It is not a way to recreate 1994, but a path to a new dynasty. It has continued until now.” “Since we have been running forward, I hope we will continue to run towards a new dynasty without looking back,” he said.
As Kim Hyun-soo said, LG succeeded in advancing to the fall baseball season for five consecutive years, the most since its founding, and this year bloomed brilliantly by winning the regular season. Now, if LG wins the Korean Series, it can also stand at the starting point of building a dynasty.
Many say that LG took first place in the regular season with an overwhelming display. However, LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop confessed, “It was not an easy season. It was one of the three most difficult seasons I’ve coached,” and Kim Hyun-soo also agreed, saying, “It was not an easy season.” Kim Hyun-soo said, “Isn’t the battle for rankings still fierce? Still, the players came together really well. If you look at the winning team, there is one truly incredible player. Of course, there are many outstanding players on our team, but there was no player that could be said to be top-notch. “That’s why we’re a better team.”
In fact, the prevailing opinion is that the atmosphere of the LG team has changed since Kim Hyun-soo came to LG. This means that he demonstrated strong leadership. However, Kim Hyun-soo waved his hand and said, “It is not that I changed it, but rather that the players changed themselves.” “LG always had a leader. I just had a different style. I wanted to be a little more active. That’s why I just looked different,” he said.
Kim Hyun-soo has a batting average of .291 with 6 home runs and 87 RBIs in 126 games this season. It is true that his performance is disappointing compared to the reputation he has built up and his destructive power last year, when he had a batting average of .286, 23 home runs, and 106 RBI. Nevertheless, LG won regular season supremacy. Doesn’t this mean that LG has become stronger? Kim Hyun-soo expressed his gratitude to his teammates, saying, “The players covered up what I couldn’t do.” This is the power of LG.
