After achieving the ‘Wire-to-Wire Championship’ last year for the first time in the KBO League, maintaining first place from the opening game to the end of the regular season, SSG completed the ‘integrated championship’ by lifting the Korean Series championship trophy. 메이저사이트

Kim Tae-hoon was on board in the opening entry, but was omitted from the Korean Series entry.

On the 25th, when the team headed to Vero Beach, Florida, USA, to prepare for the 2023 season in earnest, Kim Tae-hoon said in an interview with Yonhap News, “Last year, I only cheered hard from behind. I was sorry and upset that I couldn’t become this,” he said. “I really want to contribute to the team in 2023.”

The KBO League spring camp starts on February 1, but Kim Tae-hoon decided to speed up his training by crossing to Vero Beach a little early for his re-jump.

In August 2008, when he was a senior at Guri Inchang High School, Kim Tae-hoon succeeded in his perfect game at the Michuholgi National High School Baseball Championship, drawing attention as the ‘next-generation ace’. He was also nicknamed ‘Mr. Perfect’. SSG’s predecessor, SK Wyverns, recruited Kim Tae-hoon as the first nomination in 2009.

Although it was slow, Kim Tae-hoon established himself as a ‘built-in first-team pitcher’ in 2018 and played an active role as a key pitcher in the bullpen until 2021.

However, last year, he threw only 9 games in the first team and received a poor record of 10.13 ERA with 1 save and 3 holds.

Kim Tae-hoon said, “Last year my elbow condition was not good. The season was over after just building my body.” He said, “I didn’t rest even after the season ended. Recently, I organized a mini camp with junior teammates Choi Jun-woo, Yoon Tae-hyun, and kt wiz Cho Yong-ho in Kagoshima. I trained. Now my body has fully recovered. I plan to thoroughly manage it until the end of the season,” he said enthusiastically.

Kim Tae-hoon said, “Thanks to Taek-hyung, the burden on my heart was relieved a little. I’m envious and thankful.”

Kim Taek-hyung enlisted after the 2022 season.

The ‘left-handed bullpen’ is a weakness of the 2023 season team that SSG also acknowledges.

Kim Tae-hoon said, “I want to regain my ERA of 2018 (9-3, 10 holds, ERA of 3.83) and 2019 (4-5, 7 saves, 27 holds, ERA of 3.88). This year, I really want to regain my place.” My status is 0. I will work really hard to make it 100 on April 1, when the regular season opens this year, and I will keep it at 100 until the end of the season.”
