A 40-year-old Kia left-handed hitter is moving… Lee Seung-yeop is not everything￼
KIA 40-year-old legendary left-handed hitter is impressed.
KIA dramatically came out of the bottom. On the 21st, in the bottom of the 9th inning, where the Gwangju Samsung Game was trailing by 2-4, Hyung-Woo Choi, with no outs and 1st and 2nd base, broke off a dramatic come-from-behind superiority three-run gun. Choi Hyung-woo hit Samsung’s new finisher Lee Seung-hyun with a 146km fastball with 2S and 3 ball counts, and drew a superior three-run arch with a distance of 110m.
Hyung-Woo Choi has a good sense of hitting at the beginning of the season. From the match against Doosan in Gwangju on the 8th to this day, he continued his 11-game hitting streak. However, oddly, he did not come out well with long hits beyond doubles. However, the reason why the match against Doosan on the 8th, which was the start of the streak, was meaningful because it was an important home run that came on the way to the team victory.
At the end of the 5th inning, which was behind 3-4 at the time, against Doosan Choi Won-joon with 1 company and 1st base, he hit a 7-ball 135km fastball with a full count, and Woo Jung-wol turned around and hit a two-run four. Although the bullpen didn’t make the winning run, giving up two runs in the ninth inning, Choi Hyung-woo’s first extra-long hit of the season was quite meaningful. 메이저놀이터
Choi Hyung-woo’s second long hit came on the 19th against Busan Lotte. At this time, he set a meaningful milestone, independent of the team’s win or loss. It was because it was a shot that tied for first place in the career doubles category with Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop. Hyung-Woo Choi and coach Lee are tied for first place with 464 doubles.
And the third long hit was at the Samsung game in Gwangju that day. The KIA lineup was sluggish again on this day, and in the bottom of the 9th inning, trailing 2-4, Choi Hyung-woo led the way and ended the game dramatically. The season’s second home run and third extra-base hit. In addition, KIA passed the bottom place to Hanwha and jumped to 9th place.
He doesn’t get many long hits, but every time he hits, it’s meaningful. It’s not as athletic as before, so I can see that I’m focusing on accurate strikes. It is clear that he has a compact swing rather than a full swing. It can be interpreted as a willingness to hit to help the team rather than long hits.
Still, when a long hit comes out at the decisive moment, both KIA and himself can laugh. With just one more double hit, a new history will be written in the KBO League, and with 1470 RBIs, he chased coach Lee Seung-yeop’s 1498 RBIs with 28 runs. Even if Choi Hyeong-woo is not the same as before, there is a high possibility that this gap will be overcome in the first half. In other words, Hyung-Woo Choi can surpass Coach Lee twice this season.
It is a meaningful long-running streak. And Choi Hyung-woo’s long hit made KIA fans and KIA people laugh. It was an exciting Friday night.
