I gained confidence as I got good results at the plate. Thanks to my good performance by making good use of my strengths, the team atmosphere was strong. “It also has a positive impact,” he said.
Coach Park Jin-man explained that Kim Seong-yoon’s performance is having a positive impact on the Future Team. He said, “As Kim Seong-yoon performs well, the Future Team players will also think, ‘If we show good performances like that, we can secure a place in the first team.’” Kim Seong-yoon is giving hope (to the Future Team players). “It’s really motivating,” he said.
