Reporter Moon Dae-hyeon = Outfielder Kim Seong-pyo (29), who was released from the Samsung Lions, announced his retirement from active duty.
Kim Seong-pyo recently said on his social media, “If 10 years is long, if it is long, if it is short, I am trying to put an end to my short baseball career.”
Kim Seong-pyo, who graduated from Daechijung-Hwimun High School, joined Samsung with the 50th overall pick in the 6th round of the 2013 rookie draft. Kim Seong-pyo also became famous as Ga-yeong’s younger sister from the girl group Stellar.
His playing career wasn’t that bright. Kim Seong-pyo, who only stepped on the first team stage in 2020, was mainly used as a major runner and a major defense agent.
He appeared in 17 games last year, but he only had a batting average of 0.118 (2 hits in 17 at-bats), 5 runs and 2 steals, and was placed on the release list after the season. 토토

Kim Seong-pyo said, “After leaving Samsung this season, there were offers from other teams, but after much thought and consideration, I decided to retire. I was really happy as a professional baseball player for Samsung for 10 years. I will. Thank you to those who supported me.”
