Lotte Giants outfielder Kim Min-sik was selected as the 4th all-star best 12 as a high school graduate rookie.

KBO held an all-star best 12 fan vote for 21 days from May to the 25th. A team vote was also held at each stadium on the 13th and 15th, in which managers, coaches, and players from 10 clubs participated. On the 26th, KBO announced the All-Star Best 12, a combination of fan votes (70%) and team votes (30%).바카라

When I opened the lid, Lotte’s wind for Dream All-Star was strong. He won 7 out of 12 positions. In the fan vote, eight positions including starter, middle pitcher, finisher, first baseman, second baseman, shortstop, outfielder, and designated hitter took first place, but in the team vote, first baseman Park Byeong-ho (kt) overtook Ko Seung-min and took first place. Going up, Lotte produced the first place in the final seven categories.

Among them, the name that stands out is Kim Min-seok. Kim Min-seok, who graduated from Whimoon High School and was nominated for Lotte this year in the 3rd overall in the 1st round, was selected as the starting player from the first season and has appeared in 59 games and recorded 45 hits in 184 at-bats (2 home runs), 31 points, 21 RBIs, 9 steals, a batting average of 0.245 OPS and 0.642. He is also steadily raising his name as a candidate for Rookie of the Year.

As a result, with 925,811 votes in the fan vote, he placed 2nd in the outfield category after Samsung’s Koo Ja-wook (970,157 votes), and ranked 3rd in the final result of the team’s vote, making him the 4th best 12 ever for a high school graduate rookie (previous 2009 KIA Chi-Hong An, 2017 Kiwoom Lee Jung-Hoo, LG Jeong Woo-young in 2019) and Whimoon High School senior, Lee Jung-hoo in 2017, were selected as the best 12 high school graduate new hitters in six years. In the team vote, he ranked 8th (53 votes), but the fan vote raised his ranking.

Kim Min-seok is loved by Lotte fans enough to be called ‘the second Lee Jung-hoo’ or ‘retired idol’ after his senior in high school. He joined as an infielder, but turned to an outfielder after joining, also resembles Lee Jung-hoo. In the KBO league, where it is increasingly difficult for new players to establish themselves quickly, the performances of new players such as Kim Min-seok, Moon Hyun-bin (Hanwha), and Park Myung-geun (LG) this season are giving the league a lot of fun.

Lotte, as well as Kim Min-seok, took the lead at the beginning of this season and consistently ranked at the top, responding to the fans’ desire for a postseason for the first time in six years since 2017 (3rd place). With so many votes pouring in, I realized once again the power of Lotte fans. As of the 25th, in the last 10 games, they have 2 wins and 8 losses, and are in 4th place.

The All-Star Game will be held on the 15th of next month at Sajik Stadium. As the All-Star Game is held at the home stadium, Lotte players are expected to feel the enthusiastic support of the fans who will fill the stadium even more special. Lotte’s ‘Spring Breeze’ brought the fan heart. Until then, this is why Lotte has to work harder.
