Kim Ha-sung (29, San Diego Padres) showed weakness against left-handed pitchers this season, but he overcame it and recorded a hit in the game against the Philadelphia Phillies. In the 2024 U.S. Major League Baseball away game held at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on the 18th (Korea time), he started as the seventh batter shortstop and played one hit and one walk in two at-bats, slightly raising his batting average to 0.220 for the season.

Overcoming the weaknesses of left-handed pitchers and defense

Kim displayed stellar performance in defense and batting on the day. Notably, he garnered a hit against left-handed pitchers, and successfully targeted left-handed pitchers, which was his weakness this season. In the bottom of the second inning, he garnered praise as “beautiful play” by local broadcasters, as he recorded “Avalokiteshvara” that blocked Alec Bohm from sliding home.
