A 38-year-old shortstop hitting 300 and hitting second… ‘Genius shortstop’ with no successor, it’s too early to retire

Doosan Bears veteran infielder Kim Jae-ho literally ‘rejuvenated’. This is why the 38-year-old shortstop plays an active role as the second hitter with a batting average of 30% in the second half. Besides, there is still no successor to the ‘genius shortstop’. It’s too early to retire.메이저놀이터

On August 11th, Doosan won Daejeon Hanwha Eagles 11-4. With this victory, Doosan recorded 49 wins, 1 draw and 45 losses in the season, maintaining 5th place in the league. The difference between 3rd place NC Dinos and 4th place KT WIZ is only one game.메이저놀이터

On this day, Doosan succeeded in scoring first in the first inning. Doosan took the lead with Kim Jae-hwan’s right-handed right-handed hit in the second out, first and second base opportunity created by a hit by lead batter Sue-bin Su and a walk by Kim Jae-ho.

Doosan scored an extra run in the top of the second inning with Heo Gyeong-min’s solo home run, and in the top of the third inning Kim Jae-ho and Rojas’ consecutive hits and Yang Seok-hwan’s walk made the bases safe. Doosan ran away to 7-0 in an instant with Kim Jae-hwan’s push-off walk against the changed pitcher Lee Tae-yang, the opponent’s defensive mistake, and Heo Kyung-min’s 3-RBI sweep and timely double.

Doosan’s line-up scored without a break. In the top of the 4th inning, Doosan scored an extra run with Kang Seung-ho’s ground ball from the bases loaded opportunity, and in the top of the 5th, Su-bin Sue hit an RBI triple, Kim Jae-ho’s grounder RBI, and Ahn Jae-seok’s 1 RBI right-handed hit made it 11-0.

After the 6th inning, Doosan, which had a large score gap, changed the fielding team in a large number and played a leisurely game. Starting pitcher Brandon Waddell achieved his 5th win (2nd loss) of the season with a quality start, 5 hits, 4 strikeouts, 3 walks and 1 run in 6 innings.

In particular, the record of Kim Jae-ho, who played as the second batter shortstop that day, also shined. Kim Jae-ho played the role of table setter with 2 at-bats, 1 hit, 1 RBI, 2 runs and 2 runs.

Recently, Kim Jae-ho, who is mainly placed in the second batting order, played in 51 games this season and recorded a batting average of 0.311 / 38 hits / 13 RBI / on-base percentage of 0.409. Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “It is good that Kim Jae-ho is doing so well in the second batting order. He’s 38 years old so he has to take care of it and there is no alternative so he has no choice but to play every day. He raised his thumb, saying, “He has a stable defense and is really good at batting for the team at the plate.”

Kim Jae-ho’s FA contract ends at the end of this season. It is an important time to show his value in order to extend his active service. In conclusion, Doosan still has not properly discovered a successor to the ‘genius shortstop’. From the beginning of the season, several faces took turns taking the shortstop position, but in the end,
