“I’m so happy to be able to train with the players who represent Korea,” said Park Seung-kyu (Commercial Outfielder), who will be wearing the uniform of the Asian Professional Baseball Championship (APBC) team.
Since joining Samsung in 2019 after graduating from Gyeonggi University, Park has appeared in 226 first-team games, batting .223 (343-for-79) with four home runs, 25 RBIs, 49 runs scored and eight doubles. Despite not putting up stellar numbers, he showed promise as an outfield prospect with a solid three-ball game.
Wearing a national team uniform for the first time since his professional debut, he saw it as an opportunity to step up his game. “The players I train with are so good. There’s a lot to learn and I’m looking forward to it. I’m going to come back with a lot of learning and experience,” he said. “The individual strengths of each player are so obvious. I’ll ask them all the things I like about them.”
Park played 74 games for the Commerce this season, batting .233 바카라사이트 (59-for-59) with four home runs, 46 RBIs, 39 runs scored and 12 stolen bases.
Reflecting on the season,
He said, “I did what I wanted to do and some things didn’t go my way. I’ve learned a lot from it, and it’s only going to get better.” “I feel like I’ve improved a lot at the plate. I want to show my improvement when I return next July.”
In the final Group A game against Japan in the first round of the 2006 World Baseball Classic (WBC), Lee sprinted to catch Tsuyoshi Nishioka’s hit in the fourth inning. After escaping a two-out bases-loaded jam, South Korea defeated Japan in the eighth inning with a come-from-behind two-run homer by Lee Seung-yeop (now manager of the Doosan Bears) to advance to the second round. Lee earned the nickname “The People’s Right Fielder.
“I don’t know if I’m going to play or not, but if I get the chance to play, I’m going to do my best every moment,” said Park, who often made highlight-reel-worthy super catches before joining the military.
“I want to hear that I am a stable player who has improved year by year, and I will do my best so that fans will come to the ballpark to see me,” Park Seung-kyu, who is scheduled to retire next July, concluded the interview.
Meanwhile, Park Seung-gyu showed off his fierce batting skills with three hits, two RBIs, and one run in a practice game against Sangsung on the 8th.
