Kiwoom, unable to feature Kim Hye-sung, places Song Seong-moon at second base after 332 days

Song Seong-moon hit a timely hit

Professional baseball Kiwoom Heroes placed Song Seong-moon as the starting second baseman in place of Kim Hye-seong, who is unable to play for the time being due to mild shoulder pain.

Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki unveiled the starting lineup with Song Seong-moon as the third hitter and second baseman ahead of the first game of the double header against the Doosan Bears held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 21st.

Coach Hong said, “Ahead of this season, Song Seong-moon prepared for all infield positions except shortstop. Even during his service in the Sangmu (Armed Forces Athletic Corps), he focused on second base,” adding, “There are many good rookie infielders, but first of all, offense is the priority. “So we appointed Song Seong-moon as the starting second baseman,” he explained.

It has been 332 days since Song Seong-moon’s appearance as a starting second baseman against Suwon KT Wiz on May 25 last year.

With Kim Hye-seong missing from the starting lineup until today due to left shoulder discomfort, the way to maximize offensive power is to appoint Song Seong-moon as a second baseman.

Director Hong laughed at the joke, “Isn’t this a personnel change?” and responded, “I think personnel change is the appropriate word. I was forced to change personnel.”

Regarding Kim Hye-seong, who has discomfort in her left shoulder, Coach Hong said, “I say I do it, but I don’t think I’m at the stage where I can endure the pain. If I refer to something bad somewhere, everything, including my batting balance, will go in a bad direction.”

He added, “I completely understand the desire to play, but I thought it would be better to suppress that and play in perfect condition, so I took him out of the lineup. He will get better if he rests until tomorrow (22nd), which is his rest day.” 섯다
