Coach Kim praised Choi Hang’s home run in the first inning while looking back at Incheon kt match the previous day (4th) ahead of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League Kiwoom Heroes held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 5th.

Coach Kim said, “I started on the day I was registered in the first team, and hit an unexpected and decisive home run in my first game and first at-bat.

Choi Hang did not make the opening entry, but he returned to the first team instead of Jeon Eui-san on the 4th, recording a batting average of 0.396 and an OPS of 1.008 in 15 games in the Futures League. It was the first home run in 953 days since the KIA match on September 15, 2020.
Coach Kim, recalling the memory of meeting newcomer Choi Hang for the first time when he took over as coach in 2012, said, “I spent a lot of time with Hang when I was coaching the 3rd team. Jung-i is strong, but why are you weak?’ He joked, saying, “At that time, a player who couldn’t even cross the infield developed into a home run player.”
As coach Kim said, Choi Hang-eui’s older 스포츠토토 brother, Choi Jeong-eun, is one of the best right-handed hitters in the KBO. Choi Jeong-eun is the youngest player in KBO history to hit 400 homers, play 2000 games, and hit 2000 hits for the 17th time. He won the home run king three times and the Golden Glove eight times.
Director Kim said, “There seems to be a gene in Jung’s family that goes into (something). Hang’s physique has noticeably grown as he worked hard with weights and training. Now that he is 30 years old, I hope he will show steady performance in the first team.” conveyed the wind.
The legendary hyung, whom Choi Hang should always overcome, led the team to a 3-1 victory with 2 hits, 1 walk and 3 points in the game on the 5th. After the game, Choi Jung-eun was satisfied, saying, “I had a habit of opening my left shoulder quickly when hitting from the last minute, and I devoted myself to training to compensate for this. The parts I prepared are coming out little by little.”
Even the legendary hyung with 2,000 hits constantly works hard and trains to do better. Although it is not yet comparable in terms of career, Choi Hang-do, who has already been in his 12th year, is dreaming of becoming a long-term player. Will the two brothers, Choi Jeong and Choi Hang, be able to continue their successful ‘accompanying’ with ‘the DNA of tenacity’?
