Choi Jeong is still the best and the best. Even 20 years ago seems promising.
SSG Landers won 4-0 against Changwon NC Dinos on the 17th. SSG, which briefly lost first place to the Lotte Giants due to a loss the previous day, regained its first place with a mixed win and loss that day.
It was not an easy victory. The pitchers, including starting pitcher Oh Won-seok, held up well through 9 scoreless innings, but the batting line did not burst easily. In the top of the first inning, Choi Jeong-jeong’s solo home run kept the run until the seventh inning, and no additional runs were scored스포츠토토.
And once again, Choi Jung stepped up as the solution. In the top of the 8th inning, Choi Ji-Hoon and Oh Tae-Gon’s successive hits resulted in a safe 1st and 2nd base chance. Faced with Ha Jun-young, Choi Jeong-eun hit a changeup on the 6th pitch from a full count and hit a three-run homer that went over the left fence. A shot that breaks the tension of the match. Both the finish line and the wedge point were completed with Choi Jung-eun’s home run. It was a game that Choi Jeong started and finished.
Even when there are some ups and downs in the team’s lineup, Choi Jeong-eun leads the team’s lineup along with Guillermo Heredia, Choi Joo-hwan, and Choi Ji-hoon. In particular, he is doing the most difficult task in the center of the batting line. He is showing a more steady pace with his individual team batting average of 2.7 5 Lee in April, while 3. 1 1 Lee until the 17th in May. The collection of RBIs, which had been slowing recently, also swept 4 RBIs in the NC game that day.
It was a season that started with more pressure than ever before. Choi Jeong-eun was selected for the WBC national team held in March prior to the opening of the regular season, and focused on building his body faster than usual and improving his game sense. Of course, there were also difficulties. He suffered from poor physical condition, and the national team’s performance was not good, so he was under extreme stress. He was also fatigued. In this situation, he returned to his team and opened the door, but in April, his batting average was in the low 20% range, and his mental burden increased.
Now is the age to do so. Choi Jeong-eun, born in ‘fast’ 1987, joined the SK Wyverns in 2005. He is a veteran among veterans who will be in his 20th year as a pro next year. Now that I am in my late 30s, I sometimes feel physically limited. SSG is a team with a lot of veterans such as Choo Shin-soo, Kim Kang-min, Noh Kyung-eun, and Ko Hyo-jun, so they have less relativity, but Choi Jung also complains, “Now I feel that I am having a hard time, but the hyungs are really great.”
But Choi Jeong still does the best. He has been playing for nearly 20 years with almost no major injuries, and he seems to be able to keep his position for the time being. It is not the value of the name, but the result of an objective competition of skills. Now, fans’ expectations are not a burden, but a driving force. Choi Jeong-eun said, “I have goals because the fans expect a lot. I think the time to be burdened has passed. Those words give me more strength and motivation.”
