During defense training, Park Seok-min tried to catch the ball for the first base throw after catching the ball, but the ball bounced inside the glove. However, veteran Park Seok-min caught a ball floating in the air like a juggling and threw it perfectly to first base.

As such, he is determined to prepare for the 2023 season. Park Seok-min’s annual salary was cut by a whopping 93 percent in 2023. He received 700 million won in the 2022 season, but signed a contract at 50 million won this season, which was cut by 650 million won.
Park Seok-min was criticized by fans as the leader of the COVID-19 alcohol crisis and quarantine rules that hit the KBO League in 2021, and played 75 games with penalties and injuries for two years. Last year, he played in 16 games and received a humiliating report card with a batting average of 0.149.
