You’re a veteran, too… Choi Jung “I’m sorry for the injury, Shihwan”

Experience can’t be ignored. The veteran baseball players who swept the trophies every winter made the audience laugh with their seasoned acceptance speeches this year.

SSG Landers infielder Choi Jeong (36), NC Dinos Son As-seop (35), and other senior players from their respective teams showed off their witty remarks after receiving their trophies at the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO Awards Ceremony held at the Grand Ballroom of the Westin Chosun Hotel in Seoul on Nov. 27.

Choi Jeong-jeong, who received the batting average award, said in a video acceptance speech, “I received the batting average award because of my injury at the end of this season. If I hadn’t been injured, Noh Si-hwan (Hanwha Eagles) would have won the batting title, so I’m sorry,” which made the audience laugh.

Choi was on fire with a .549 on-base percentage through August, but has seen a noticeable decline since then.

Her monthly batting average dropped to 0.405 in August and 0.457 in September.

Choi injured his thigh after the October 10 game against the KIA Tigers and was unable to play any more regular season games, and his batting average did not drop further.

She ended up winning the batting average award with a 0.548 average, 온라인카지노 beating out Noh Si-hwan (0.541).

Noh had to settle for two awards for batting average and home runs.

Son Asob, who took home two trophies for batting average and most hits, also expressed his gratitude for the award.

“I’ve competed for the batting title many times and missed out on it, but I thought it would be a jinx if I didn’t get it this season, so I focused more on it,” he said.

Son also received a question from the moderator about his close friend, LG Twins’ Im Chan-kyu, which he answered with a chuckle.

The moderator said, “Recently, Im Chan-gyu mentioned that he hasn’t won a championship in many internet broadcasts,” to which Son said, “I also saw (Im) attack me.” He continued, “As I recall, Chan-gyu attacked me.

“I don’t know what he’s talking about, but I don’t think he did well in the Korean Series (KS) this year,” he said, making the audience laugh.

Lim, who helped LG win the KS this year, was poking fun at Son, who has never won a KS, and Son responded with humor at the award ceremony.

LG’s Oh Ji-hwan (33), who won the newly created Defensive Award (shortstop), livened up the ceremony with a self-deprecating comment.

“I’ve been waiting for this award the most,” he said, adding, “My nickname is actually Oh Ji-bae, but I got it because I made a lot of mistakes at crucial moments.”

“I’ve been thinking a lot about ‘when will I be recognized,’ but I’m grateful to receive this worthy award,” he said. 바카라사이트
