Ha-seong Kim (28, San Diego Padres), who is in his 3rd year in the Major League (MLB), will go to the ground with ‘HS KIM’ engraved on the back of his uniform, not ‘KIM’, from this season.

The San Diego Union Tribune, a local newspaper in San Diego, USA, reported on the 20th (Korean time), “Ha-sung Kim has ‘HS KIM’ engraved on his back in his third season in San Diego. It is different from other ‘KIM’.”

In an interview with the media, Kim Ha-seong said, “There are many Korean big leaguers with the last name Kim. There are so many Kim in Korea.” Instead, we decided to engrave the initials (HS) of the name on the uniform.”

‘Kim’ is the most common surname in Korea. As usual, there were many major leaguers. The San Diego Union Tribune explained, “The Kim family has produced many Korean big leaguers, such as Kim Byung-hyun, Kim Seon-woo, Kim Hyun-soo, and Kim Kwang-hyun.” 바카라

As the San Diego Union Tribune said, a total of five Kim players, including Kim Kwang-hyeon, Kim Hyeon-soo, Kim Ha-seong, Kim Won-joong, Kim Hye-seong, and Kim Yun-sik, were on board in the Korea World Baseball Classic (WBC). There are three coaches on the coaching staff: Kim Ki-tae, Kim Min-ho, and Kim Min-jae. The Korean WBC team also has their name initials and surname engraved on their uniforms. ‘HS KIM’ on Kim Ha-sung’s 2023 WBC uniform
