“It’s the first away game of the season in Daegu, so the excitement is doubled”.
KT Kim Sang-soo, who played for Samsung until last year, shared his impressions of going to Daegu for the first time after the opening. Kim Sang-soo, who met with reporters ahead of the game on the 26th, said, “I am more excited this time than when I came to Daegu for the demonstration game in March. He laughed, saying, “It’s the first away game of the season in Daegu, so the excitement is doubled.”
“I felt strange during the Samsung home game (April 28-30), but this time it is more like an away game. It was the same when I got out of the toll gate, and I felt strange in many ways. My mother came here often during her Samsung days, but since I’m not there, she’s going to go out to the baseball field after a long time.”
Kim Sang-soo was hit on the left elbow by Won Jong-hyun’s pitch in the 7th inning against Kiwoom in Suwon on the 25th. On the 26th, it was swollen enough to make it unclear whether he would go to the game, but he burned his will to go to Daegu by doing icing all the way. Director Lee Kang-cheol said, “It is really beautiful how much you think about the team. Samsung head coach Kim Tae-gyun and pitching coach Kim Tae-han praise me a lot, and there are reasons for that.”
In response, Kim Sang-soo said, “I thought today’s game would be difficult, but thanks to the very good management in the training part, my condition has improved enough to play. Thank you for taking good care of it, such as icing on the bus. It was the first away game of the season in Daegu, so I wanted to say hello to the Samsung fans, but I’m glad.”
“You are doing so well. I heard a lot of good stories, so I thought it would do something, but it exceeded my expectations.” Director Lee Kang-cheol puts a smile on his face whenever a story about Kim Sang-soo comes up.
Kim Sang-soo said, “It is because the director took good care of me. Thank you for your kind words. I try to do my best in what I can. I think that kind of play comes out because the coach is very considerate. I am more grateful and I will do my best to show you a better image on the ground.”
Like a king of stolen bases, his witty base running also stands out. Kim Sang-soo said, “I am confident in running. He has a strong desire to do well in everything whether it is offense, defense or running,” he said. “As I said at the beginning of the season, I want to erase the story of the aging curve. It’s been going well so far, and I hope it will do well in the future.”
