Kim Tae-hoon (27, outfielder), who moved to Samsung as a free agent compensation player for Kim Sang-soo (33, KT), made his debut.

Kim Tae-hoon, who joined KT in 2015 after graduating from Yushin High School, played in 75 first-team games and recorded a batting average of 203 (29 hits in 143 at-bats), 2 homers, 8 RBIs and 9 runs. He appeared in 378 career games for the Futures, where he batted 3.3 with 347 hits, 42 home runs, 211 RBIs, 179 runs scored and 26 stolen bases. He was the batting leader in the Southern League in 2020 with a batting average of 3.6 7 Lee (84 hits in 229 at-bats).

Samsung revealed the reason for appointing Kim Tae-hoon as the compensation player, saying, “Kim Tae-hoon has excellent contact and handling skills, so he is valuable as a pinch hitter and will increase the team’s outfield depth.”

Kim Tae-hoon, who was included in the roster for the first team camp, started as the left fielder number 4 in a practice game against the Nippon Ham Fighters held at Nago Stadium in Okinawa, Japan on the 9th. He entered the plate three times and failed to report a hit, with a fly to center field in the second inning, striking out in the fifth, and retiring on a grounder to second base in the seventh.

Kim Tae-hoon, who made his debut after the transfer, said, “It was a practice game, but it’s unfortunate that we lost the first game. Through practice and training, communication with the defenders seems to have improved. Today’s difficult ball was also good thanks to (Kim) Hyun-joon’s good call play. I think I was on defense,” he said. Kim Tae-hoon also added, “I will prepare well for the season by improving his batting stance during the spring camp.”

On this day, Samsung lost to Nippon Ham 0-3. Left-hander Heo Yoon-dong, who started as the starting pitcher, recorded 3 hits, 1 walk and 2 runs in 2 innings, and Yang Chang-seop, who took over the baton, threw relatively well with 3 hits, 1 walk and 1 run in 2 innings. After that, Park Se-woong, Kim Si-hyeon, Hong Jeong-woo, and left-hander Lee Seung-hyun cleaned up one inning each.

Yang Chang-seop said, “It’s been a while since I played against Japan, but the process and results are a bit disappointing. At least, I’m satisfied with catching a runner on the ground as a checker.” He shared his impressions of the climb.
