Choi Jeong’s appearance in the game was six days after the Incheon KIA Tigers game on the 17th.

In the KIA game on the 17th, with 467 home runs in his professional career, tying Doosan Bears coach Lee Seung-yeop’s record for most home runs in the KBO League, Choi Jeong was hit near his left ribs by a ball thrown by opposing starter William Crowe in the first inning.

An examination immediately after his injury showed microfractures, so it looked like his absence would be prolonged, but upon re-examination, fortunately, he was diagnosed with a bruise.

Choi Jeong resumed batting training on the 21st and will participate in today’s game as normal, aiming for a record.

Coach Lee said ahead of the game, “I saw him training earlier, and he said he wasn’t sick.

He is a player with good mental strength, so I trusted him to do well and selected him as a starter.”

He continued by saying, “I hope we can celebrate the record for the most home runs today.”

After Choi Jeong was hit by Crow’s pitch, Coach Lee said, “I’ve never seen him in that much pain,” and was heartbroken that it was only a bruise.

Coach Lee said, “I think Choi Jeong should thank his parents.

And he himself has taken good care of his body, so heaven has helped him.”

On this day, Choi Jeong-eun aims for his ‘468th home run’ against Lotte starter Han Hyun-hee.

Choi Jeong-eun had a career batting average of 0.275 (14 hits in 51 at-bats) and hit two home runs against Han Hyun-hee.
