It was a busy day. Kang Jin-seong played as the designated hitter No. 8 in the match against the Futures League Goyang Heroes at Goyang Stadium that day and recorded 1 hit and 1 RBI in 3 at-bats.  

After the game, he moved to Jamsil to say goodbye to the Doosan players. After that, he moved to Incheon SSG Landers Field and joined the SSG team. He arrived around 6pm and took a profile picture wearing an SSG uniform. 

SSG agreed on a one-on-one trade on the 25th to bring in Kang Jin-seong from Doosan and give up pitcher Kim Jeong-woo.

SSG first asked Doosan to trade Kang Jin-seong to reinforce right-handed hitters. SSG coach Won-hyung Kim welcomed the match ahead of the match against LG on the 25th, saying, “Right hitters must have a balance. Kang Jin-seong also has punching power.” Foreign batter Heredia is a right-handed hitter.,

Kang Jin-seong played an active part in NC as a member of the combined championship with a 30% batting average in 2020. Ahead of the 2022 season, he moved to Doosan as a compensation player for FA Park Gun-woo, and did not take his place in Doosan this year. I played only 3 games in the 1st team (1 hit in 3 at-bats).

-When did you find out about the trade?
I received a call on the way back to Jamsil by bus after the Futures Goyang game today. I was distracted by the sudden news and in Jamsil I came here right after saying hello to the Doosan team.

-How do you feel about the trade?

In fact, I am sorry to the fans for showing a disappointing appearance at Doosan. However, as I came to SSG through a trade, I will help SSG achieve 1st place.

-What thoughts did you have about the team called SSG?
It was a team I always wanted to go to. From the point of view of other teams, the infrastructure such as the locker room was enviable. I feel honored to be joining the team.

– What did both teams say?
Head coach Lee Seung-yeop told us to do well, thinking that this was a good opportunity and that it was the last team. Coach Wonhyung Kim also told us to make up our minds comfortably in our team. Today is the first day, so he advised me to learn the atmosphere of the dugout and adapt well.

– What are your plans for the future?
I don’t have any close friends in SSG yet, but I know it’s a team with a good atmosphere, so I’ll adapt well to the squad. Also, I will become a player who helps the team to continue competing for first place so that it does not become a nuisance.
