A triple-threat batting performance and extraordinary fan service… The 2.9 billion cod man becomes a hero in Suwon

The eighth game of the season between the KT Wiz and NC Dinos of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League took place at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 1st. According to KT officials, KT’s dramatic 7-6 come-from-behind victory prompted many home fans to stay at the stadium instead of going home and wait for the victorious players to leave, and KT players rewarded their patience by answering autograph and photo requests.

The player who stood out the most was ‘transfer student’ Kim Sang-soo. After going 2-for-4 with a double, a walk, and a run scored in the come-from-behind victory, he left the stadium after a half-hour of fan service to the fans he met on his way home from work. He reportedly had no trouble signing autographs and taking photos.

Kim signed a free agent contract with KT in November last year for a total of 2.9 billion won over four years (800 million won in down payment, 1.5 billion won in salary, and 600 million won in options). In his first free agency in 2019, he stayed with Samsung for three years for a total of 1.8 billion won, but as a second free agent, he switched teams for the first time with a better deal. Kim Sang-soo, Samsung’s first pick in the 2009 rookie draft out of Kyungpook National University, was a Daegu one-club man who spent 14 years with Samsung until last year.

Halfway through the season, the signing of Kim Sang-soo has been described as a “steal”. After being plagued by aging curve controversies in his last two years with Samsung, Kim has bounced back with a .728 OPS in 67 games, hitting 2-for-9 with 25 RBIs, 31 runs scored and a solid shortstop defence. He’s batted 3-for-9 with RBIs, and he’s done his job as a table-setter and bottom-of-the-order hitter alike. KT’s stunning rebound in June was largely due to Kim Sang-soo, who batted 3.01 for the month.

The loss of championship shortstop Shim Woo-jun to the military was bound to weaken KT’s line-up, but the dynasty shortstop has stepped in and is performing better than his predecessor. KT manager Lee Kang-cheol recently told reporters in Suwon, “He came to our team and has been playing really well. He has a different batting class, and as he plays shortstop defence again, he seems to be reviving his old senses,” he praised.

“Not only me, but all KT players are very good at signing autographs,” said Kim Sang-soo, who is also a fan of the team. “Wiz Park is very open, similar to the former Daegu Civic Stadium. At that time, I thought a lot. I’m ready to do any fan service for the fans who support me and wait for me until the end. Thank you for your support,” he said, showing off his professionalism.
