The 2023 Major League Baseball exhibition game begins.
The major league demonstration game will start on the 25th (Korean time). This year, the major leagues changed three major rules. The defensive shift is limited to increase the number of balls in play, the pitch clock is introduced for quick game operation, and the size of the base is also expanded to protect runners. The newly changed rules are applied starting with the demonstration games, and attention is also focused on how quickly players and referees can adapt to the new rules.
On the other hand, at 5:10 am on the 25th, Ha-sung Kim will play a match between the San Diego Padres and the Seattle Mariners, and other major matches will be played through the SPOTV Prime channel and the sports OTT service SPOTV NOW.스포츠토토
Kim “Awesome Kim” Ha-seong is expected to play second base this season. This year, San Diego recruited ‘irreplaceable shortstop’ Xander Bogarts, and as a result, the defensive positions of Ha-sung Kim and Tatis Jr. also changed. Kim Ha-seong played second base in all 21 MLB games, but he did not allow a single error. Indeed, attention is focused on whether Kim Ha-seong can play an active role as a fantasy keystone combination with Bogatz.
Meanwhile, the player who received the most attention at this spring camp was Tatis Jr. Regarding Tatis Jr., who only played in the outfield this camp, manager Bob Melvin cited his health as the reason, saying, “I will start as an outfielder who moves less than a shortstop.” And in the second half of the exhibition game, he suggested the possibility of using Tatis as a shortstop instead of Zander Bogatz and Kim Ha-seong, who are participating in the WBC.
The Seattle Mariners, who advanced to the postseason last year, came together for a higher goal this season. “Last year’s American League Division Series made the team feel stronger,” said center fielder Julio Rodriguez, who was the rookie of the season.
And Luis Castillo, who became a superstar in the last postseason, said in an interview with local media, “We have been preparing for a long time, so we hope to go further, and we are a team with many talents.” This season, Seattle will feature its best starting rotation of Luis Castillo, Robbie Ray, up-and-coming prospects George Kirby and Logan Gilbert, and consistent Marco Gonzalez.The match between the Seattle Mariners and the San Diego Padres, which is expected to participate in the 2023 MLB demonstration game selection, ‘Awesome Kim’ Ha-seong Kim, will be held on the 25th at 5:10 am on the Spotify (SPOTV), Spotv Prime (SPOTV Prime) channels and Spotify Now ( It will be broadcast live through SPOTV NOW).
