“It’s time for someone to step up (as KT Wiz’s second baseman).”카지노
KT captain and veteran Park Kyung-soo, 39, started at second base in the seventh spot against the NC Dinos in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on 2 February.
On the day, Park went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored, helping the team to a 5-0 victory. Regardless of his performance, he made team history. He became the team’s all-time leading hitter with his 773rd hit, surpassing the record of 772 set by hitting coach Han Yu-joon. He has been playing consistently since joining KT as a free agent in 2015.
As Park said, it’s time for someone to take over as KT’s second baseman. Park can’t stay there forever, so it’s up to the future Wizards’ second basemen, from Oh Yoon-seok and Lee Ho-yeon to rookies Ryu Hyun-in (23) and Son Min-seok (19).
That’s why Park sincerely hopes that the ‘post-Park’ will come as soon as possible. He hopes to see a smooth transition as the juniors improve their skills. “(The idea of the juniors taking my place) is huge. I’m one of those people who really loves this team and wants it to do well. Someone needs to step up and make it easier for me to rest on the shoulders of the younger guys, because they’ve got a lot more going for them, and hopefully they’re going to explode and be good players. Whoever it is…” he confided.
Finally, Park said, “I didn’t expect the congratulatory message on the scoreboard (after setting the team record). I was honestly surprised that it was a team record and not a KBO record, but I was also very grateful. They paid attention to this… “There are still a lot of fans who were there from the early days when we were in last place, and I think that kind of affection and interest in me will come from them. I’m really grateful for that,” he said, thanking his fans.
