Na Seong-beom, who finished the first season of free agency transfer, “30 homers-100 RBIs, if you are a center hitter, you should aim every year”

For KIA Tigers Na Seong-beom (33), the 2022 season was a year of great challenges. It was the first season to greet after transferring to a free agent (FA). The six-year, 15 billion won super-large contract attracted the attention of baseball fans even before the start of the season, and came as a great burden to him. It was a season that was not easy to avoid harsh evaluations with tolerable results. However, Na Seong-beom has done his part by taking his ‘average’ from his first season. He played in all 144 games and left outstanding results with a batting average of 0.320, 21 homers, 97 RBIs, 92 runs scored, and a slugging percentage of 0.508.

Na Seong-beom was proudly named as the winner of the outfield category at the ‘2022 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO Golden Glove Awards Ceremony’ held on the 9th. After 7 years since 2015, he had the golden glove again. It is the 2022 season that followed his best finish.
Na Seong-beom looked back on an unforgettable year in a phone call with Sports Donga on the 14th. “I played every game this season without any injuries. He received the Golden Glove in 7 years and finished well, but his personal record leaves a little to be desired. Fans must have had much more expectations, but he regrets not being able to fulfill that part.”

He said, “30 home runs and 100 RBIs are records I want to achieve every year as a center hitter. Of course, that is a goal to aim for next year as well. But this year, that goal was not achieved. The more I play baseball, the more I realize that those numbers are really not easy.”

There are only five fielders in the entire league, including Na Seong-beom, who have played 144 games this year. Na Seong-beom is the only one in KIA. Since he has a unique desire for a full-time business trip, this year’s full-time business trip is a very special record for him.

Na Seong-beom said, “Didn’t you come here after receiving that kind of treatment? On the professional stage, there are numerous players who want to play but cannot. You should be grateful for being able to play. Even if my body changes as I get older, I want my mind to be the same as when I was a rookie. For me, the entire field trip is a very special record,” he emphasized. 토토사이트

The off-season that I met after running without hesitation. Seongbeom Na is more focused as a member of his family. He said, “I plan to go on a trip with his family soon. Shouldn’t we be diligent in what we couldn’t do during the season (laughs)?”

He also prepared a pleasant year-end gift. During the regular season, he plans to gift his mother-in-law the vehicle “The New Seltos,” which he received during the home run event. Na Seong-beom said, “Thankfully, I received a vehicle around the end of the year. The last time I received the K5, I gave it to my mother as a gift, and this time, I want to give the Seltos as a gift to my mother-in-law.”
