‘2000 hits only help’ Choi Jeong will achieve many great records

SSG’s Choi Jeong (36), who is synonymous with consistency, finally succeeded in stepping on the 2000 hit mark. It is the 17th record in KBO league history.

In an away game against Samsung in the 2023 KBO League held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 12th, Choi Jung-eun came out as the lead batter in the top of the 6th inning and made a double through the middle left against the changed opponent pitcher Lee Ho-seong.

It was the moment when the 2000th hit in his personal career was made. Choi Jeong, who stepped into the professional career after receiving the first nomination from SK in 2005, announced the start of her career by hitting 21 hits in her first year.

Since then, Choi Jeong-eun, who recorded 109 hits in 2007, created three-digit hitting seasons 12 times until last year, and recorded 147 hits, the most in a single season in 2019.

Prior to Choi Jeong-ho, there were only 16 players with more than 2,000 hits in the KBO League. Park Yong-taek, who retired in 2020, holds the record for the most hits ever with 2504, followed by Yang Jun-hyuk with 2318, and Son Ah-seop, who holds the record for the most hits by an active player, with 2236.

Now, the focus is on how far Choi Jeong’s record streak will reach.

Choi Jeong-eun, who is in his 19th year as a professional this season, has not had any major injuries so far and has not suffered a sharp slump until he reached his mid-30s.

However, since Choi Jeong-eun is a type of hitter aiming for long hits such as home runs, he is inevitably slower to accumulate hits than alternate hitters such as Son A-seop, Kim Hyeon-soo (2105), and Lee Yong-kyu (2048).

In fact, in the position of Choi Jeong,토스카지노 who is running toward other great records, the number of hits is only a material for an auxiliary role.

In particular, the career home runs (currently 430), which are ranked second in history, can surpass Lee Seung-yeop (467), who is the all-time number one, next season at the latest. Choi Jeong-eun goes beyond this and challenges the first 500 homers in the KBO.

He is also accumulating 1374 (5th all-time) and 1277 (3rd all-time) in RBIs and runs scored steadily, respectively. RBIs and runs scored are all held by Lee Seung-yeop, and all of these records are expected to be overtaken with a home run.

Choi Jeong-eun, who has already held an unmatched record of 313 in the 4-ball division, recorded 82.67 in terms of win contribution (WAR, statistic standard) against substitute players, aiming straight ahead of Yang Jun-hyeok (87.22), who is the first player in history.

In addition, even in the most appearances category, which is currently ranked 11th, it is possible to enter the top 4 this season, and if there are no injuries to be noted, it will write another history as the player who appeared the most in the KBO league next season beyond Park Yong-taek (2237 games). do.
