Kim Young-woong, who was nominated by Samsung in the 3rd place in the 2nd 1st round last year, has been recognized for his outstanding potential since high school and has received a lot of attention from fans and clubs. Samsung, where Yasu-jin’s generational change was inevitable, put great expectations on Kim Young-woong’s growth.

Kim Young-woong, who played in 13 games in the first team in the first year of his debut, is getting more opportunities this year. His first half performance was 11 hits in 63 at-bats in 32 games, a batting average of 0.175, 1 home run and 6 RBIs. He spent more time in group 1 than group 2. Thanks to this, he even enjoyed the honor of stepping on the stage of the Futures All-Star Game, and performed a multi-hit performance with 2 hits and 1 point in 4 at-bats.

Ahead of the 2023 KBO Futures All-Star Game held at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 14th, Kim Young-woong said, “I feel honored to have been selected as an All-Star even if it is Futures, and I will do my best as much as I have chosen.”

Kim Young-woong, who did not forget to mention the leaders, said, “I like the coaches (1st and 2nd teams), but my grandson, the coach, takes care of me a lot. It’s always hard, but when others get one, I get three more.” I always feel grateful for coming out 30 minutes earlier and hitting the fungo when playing at .

Kim Young-woong said, “I’m not satisfied (for the first half of the year), but I learned a lot from last season in a short period of time.” I’m working harder because it seems to be going the way I thought,” he looked back on his first half.

Specifically, what Kim Young-woong was satisfied with was the fight at bat. He said, “There are some shortcomings in the front line, but it seems to be more familiar than last year, and in that way, it is still not going well in the first group, but in the second group, it seems that the number fight has improved a lot by entering the bat much more.”

If there is one thing Kim Young-woong has been watching closely this year, it is the batting video of Yuki Yanagita, an outfielder active in the Softbank Hawks of the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB). Yanagita is one of the leading outfielders in Nippon Professional Baseball and has been on the NPB stage for over 10 years.

Kim Young-woong, who did not have a role model until last year, said, “I think there is something lacking in my hitting, so I watched it in the style I wanted, and while talking about baseball with (Lee) Jae-hyun in a hotel, Jae-hyun watched a video of Yanagita once. He said, “I watched it because it was good to just refer to it, but when I saw the video before going to bed, it was very cool and it seems that he is good at full swing. I have something, so I’m just watching it in slow motion to catch the timing.” He smiled.

Even in the second half, Kim Young-woong is an essential infield resource for Samsung. Fans are also sending unwavering support. Kim Young-woong said, “I always have the mindset of learning, and there are many good seniors in our team, so I want to learn well.”
