“I think the time to be burdened has passed. Those words motivate me.”
Choi Jeong (36), who led SSG Landers to victory by exploding multiple home runs, expressed his feelings about the expectations of the fans.
Choi Jeong-eun led SSG to a 4-0 victory by sweeping all 4 RBIs of the team alone, such as hitting a multi-home run in an away game against NC Dinos in the 2023 KBO League held at NC Park in Changwon on the 17th.
Choi Jeong-eun, who started as the designated hitter No. 3, made a big success with 2 hits, 2 points, 1 walk and 4 RBIs in 4 at-bats. In particular, he was responsible for scoring every moment of SSG, including the first solo home run in the first inning and the wedge three-run home run in the 8th inning, and the timing of the home run was also decisive for the game.
After the game, Choi Jeong-eun expressed his feelings about leading the victory through the SSG club. Regarding the first home run situation in the first inning, Choi Jeong-eun said, “I remember being hit a lot by Gu Chang-mo’s body ball and fork ball in the NC game last time.
Looking at batters 1 and 2, it seems that the game is focused on fastballs, so in the first at-bat, I thought of a quick ball to the side and turned it, but it hit well and turned into a home run.”
In the beginning of the first inning, Choi Jeong-eun went into the at-bat with no runners and skipped the first pitch, then hit a high course 142km fastball that entered the second strike zone and drew a solo arch over the left fence. Choi Jeong-i’s 5th home run of the season.
In the tense situation of 1-0 at the beginning of the 8th inning, with 1st and 2nd bases unharmed, he hit Ha Jun-young’s 6th high course changeup and hit a three-run home run that went over the left fence again this time. Choi Jeong-i’s 6th home run of the season.
Regarding the second home run, Choi Jeong-eun said, “In the 8th inning, the opposing pitcher persistently threw a slider and hit a change-up at the end. I was going to do it, but when I faced the opposing pitcher’s slider, the ball was good, so I thought that if I put the point in front, I could strike out.”
At the same time, Choi Jung-eun added, “I set the timing with the feeling of hitting the second baseman’s ground ball by holding the point back a little, but as the breaking ball came in, I was lucky to make a good hit.”
Choi Jeong-eun is showing an unwavering performance this season as well, ranking first in points (30 points) and fifth in RBIs (27 points). Although many years have passed, this is why the words ‘Choi Jeong Landers’ or ‘Choi Jeong wins when he hits’ still follow. Would these words be burdensome? 토스카지노
Choi Jeong-eun said, “I think it’s a goal because the fans expect a lot. It seems that the time to be burdened has passed. Those words give me more strength and seem to motivate me.”
