Choi Jeong, who is on the verge of hitting a home run record, “I want to hit it quickly and get out of this situation.”

If you add one home run, you will be tied for first place in KBO’s career, and if you hit two, it will be a new record.

“I also want to hit quickly and get out of this situation.”

This is the honest thoughts of Jeong Choi (37, SSG Landers), who is about to set a record.

Choi Jeong-eun, whom we met ahead of the professional baseball home game against the KIA Tigers held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 16th, smiled and said, “I want to play baseball quietly.”

Although it has been a while since he established himself as a representative hitter in Korean baseball, Choi Jeong feels burdened by being in the spotlight.

However, he also understands the attention being paid to him since he has reserved the lead role in breaking the formula of ‘KBO home run leader = Lee Seung-yeop’.

Choi Jeong hit home runs in the 7th and 9th innings in a visiting game against KT Wiz at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 14th, increasing his personal home run total to 466.

If one more home run is added, Choi Jeong-eun will tie the KBO career home run record (467) held by current Doosan Bears coach Lee Seung-yeop, and if one more arch is added, a new record will be set.

On June 20, 2013, Coach Seung-Yeop Lee hit his 352nd home run in the KBO League wearing a Samsung Lions uniform, rising to the top spot in his career, and his name has been engraved on the top spot in this category for over 10 years.

As early as today, Choi Jeong could become the new owner of the KBO career home run record.

SSG coach Lee Soong-yong said to Choi Jeong after training, “Hit two today and set a new record.”

An SSG team official met with Choi Jeong and briefly explained the ‘schedule for setting a new home run record.’

The SSG club posted on social network service (SNS), “The fan who caught Choi Jeong’s 468th home run will receive two 2024-2025 Live Zone season tickets, a bat autographed by Choi Jeong, a large logo ball signed by the team, an E-Mart online gift certificate worth 1.4 million won, They also announced, “We will give you a one-year free Starbucks beverage voucher and a 750,000 won lodging voucher at the Chosun Hotel.”

In this way, SSG Landersfield is full of ‘new record energy’.

Choi Jeong looked embarrassed and said, “It’s not easy to hit two home runs in one day… but since I hit back-to-back home runs in the game against KT on the 14th, it seems like things are getting busier around me.”

In fact, Choi also wants to set a record quickly.

Choi Jeong confessed, “I usually don’t think about records, but the atmosphere is different now… I want to set a record quickly and get out of this situation,” and “I really want to play baseball quietly.”

Another concern also arose.

Choi Jeong complained, “If I set a record and the team loses, it’s difficult to hold a ceremony,” and “I feel more pressure when I imagine this.”

Although he feels pressured by the hot gaze directed at him and has some unnecessary worries, his sense of hitting is on an upward curve.

Choi Jeong said, “I made a slight change in my batting posture ahead of the three-game series against KT last weekend (12th to 14th). On the first day (12th), I got two hits, but it was not a batting ball that I liked. When I hit two home runs on the 14th, I hit a batting ball. “I was satisfied with the quality,” he said, adding, “The feel of the shot was pretty good.”

He emphasized several times, “I want to pass this over as quietly as possible.”

However, Choi Jeong is a player who will set a record that cannot be passed quietly.

Coincidentally, SSG is playing a 6-game home game this week. SSG Landersfield is heating up with the ‘fever waiting for the best new record’. 한국야동
