SSG Landers veteran infielder Choi Joo-hwan (35) is definitely having a different season than the past two years. He’s feeling it himself too.
SSG won 10-2 in the 6th game of the season against KT Wiz in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Incheon SSG Landers Field on the 4th. Choi Joo-hwan, who started as the second baseman and second batter, became the main character in the final.
Choi Joo-hwan, whom we met after the game, said, “I heard that foreign pitcher Bo Schulser, whom I am facing for the first time today, has a good fastball and changeup. Concentrating on that and preparing for it led to good results,” he said, explaining the secret to hitting the home run.
Joo-Hwan Choi led the team to victory with 2 hits, 1 RBI and 1 point in 4 at-bats, including the first solo shot in the 1st inning. His batting average for the season rose from 20.7 1 Lee to 2.8 1 Lee.
Choi Joo-hwan looked back, saying, “I focused on the timing of the hit at the plate, and the fastball I was preparing for came in and I was able to record a home run.”
In the last 10 games, the hitting feeling is 304.3, and the pace is good. It’s different from the last two seasons, when I had a lot of heartache due to injuries and sluggishness. After losing 7kg last winter and welcoming the camp, Joo-hwan Choi began to gain confidence.
You can also see personal records. Joo-Hwan Choi is hitting 4 homers this season. If you hit one more, you will become a 100th home run hitter in your personal career.
Choi Joo-hwan said, “I have one left in my personal career of 100 home runs, but I try to follow the rules at bat without being too conscious.” Rather, he said, “I can’t say that the pace has been good for a month since the opening, but I’m glad that the parts I prepared for the off-season are coming out little by little.” 토토사이트
After being nominated by Doosan in 2006 and jumping into the professional stage, he hit his first home run in 2012. Last year, in 2018, he also hit 26 home runs. It was the best time he said. Afterwards, he hit 16 in 2020 and hit 18 home runs in 2021, becoming SSG Man as a free agent.
There are three seasons with 10 or more home runs, but this is a record for six seasons including this year. This year, at the current pace, more than 20 will be enough. Choi Joo-hwan said, “I want to prepare well for the future and play a steady season. I will prepare step by step so that I can record good results this season.”
