Technical support issues
SSG Landers Choi Jeong's acceptance speech was a hot topic. Choi Jong-un won the slugging percentage award at the KBO Awards held at the Westin Chosun Hotel Grand Ballroom in Sogong-dong on the 26th. With a slugging percentage of 548 runs, he stopped Hanwha Noh Si-hwan (0.541), who is the king of home runs and RBIs, from winning three gold medals.
Choi Jong-un, who was unable to attend due to personal reasons, expressed his feelings through a video filmed in advance.
However, Choi Jeong said, "Roh Si-hwan was able to win three times, but I was able to keep the slugging rate because I was unintentionally injured at the end of the season," adding, "I feel so sorry for Roh."
It may be a situation in which the player who won the award rather says sorry to his competitor. The story was like this.
Choi Jeong was canceled from the first team on the 13th due to a pain in his left thigh while running on base against the KIA Tigers on October 10, the end of the season. I was told that I needed a week's rest. Choi Jeong did not play in the remaining four games.
At that time, Choi Jeong was competing with Noh Si-hwan for the first place in home runs and slugging percentage. Choi Jeong, who was chasing Roh Si-hwan with 31 home runs with 29 home runs, had no choice but to stop his challenge to become the home run king.
Until October 12, Roh Si-hwan had a slight lead in the slugging rate with 547 li8 moh and Choi Jeong with 547 li7 moh. However, Choi Jung did not play since then, and Noh Si-hwan's slugging percentage, who continued to play, fell to 541, making Choi Jung the king of the slugging percentage.
Choi Jeong apologized to Roh Si-hwan for not being able to compete until the end due to an injury.
Choi Jung-eun said, "I will do my best to attend the awards ceremony next year with more proud grades."
Choi Jeong, who joined the club in 2005, has hit a total of 458 home runs so far this year, leaving only nine behind Doosan Bears manager Lee Seung-yeop's record of 467 home runs in the KBO league. If he loses 10 games next season in his 20th year since debut, he will set a new record.
It was Choi Jung-woon's impressive acceptance speech, which ranks among KBO league legends.
