Kim Hye-seong started as second baseman twice in the match against KT Wiz in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 12th and recorded 1 hit, 1 RBI, 1 run, and 1 steal in 5 at-bats.

At the end of the 3rd inning, Kim Hye-seong, who hit 1 RBI on 1st and 2nd base safely, succeeded in stealing 2nd base in Lee Jung-hoo’s at-bat and climbed to the top of the 20th base stealing season. It is the 10th time since Park Hae-min (then Samsung) in 2019 that he achieved 20 stolen bases for 6 consecutive years.

Manager Hong Won-ki praised Kim Hye-sung’s base base play, saying, “It seems like we are proud of our team’s players, but I think that the main power and judgment are the top in the league.” However, there are many times when I admire Kim Hye-sung’s runner-up play. He has excellent judgment and seems to have his own know-how when stealing.”

Kim Hye-seong, who recorded 46 steals in 2021 and won the steal title for the first time since his debut, stayed in second place in the league last season with 34 steals. Even this season, she is in second place in steals, but the gap with first place Shin Min-jae (LG, 21 steals) is only 1 point.

Kim Hye-seong said, “Of course I want to win her stolen base title. It’s good if she is the king of stolen bases,” she said, “I focus on the success rate rather than the number of stolen bases. It would be sad if he died on the floor, and the atmosphere in the team would deteriorate. If you succeed, you will be in scoring position, but if you go out, the runner on first base will disappear, so I try to run when I can succeed.”

Kim Hye-seong boasts an overwhelming stealing success rate since 2021, when he became the king of stolen bases. She is 92.0% in 2021, 82.9% last year and 90.9% this year. This year she only stole 20 bases while she failed 2 times.

Despite her high stealing rate, she said, “She has too many memories of failing to steal. She seems to only have memories of failure,” Kim Hye-seong laughed, saying, “It seems that I have my own standard for trying to steal. I’m not aiming for timing or anything like that. The catchers have better brains than I do. Depending on the situation, I get the feeling that if I run now, I will live. I’m running while watching the timing and making sure my feet are moving well,” she explained her own stealing know-how.

Kim Hye-seong, who was selected as the national team for the Hangzhou Asian Games held in September, has no choice but to lose the competition for her stolen base title because she has a gap of about two weeks to participate in the tournament. But she said, Kim Hye-seong said, “I can’t help it. She has been running hard now and will come back and run hard again,” she said with confidence.
