‘Intentional 4-pitch strategy mung’ Choi Ji-hoon, who secretly brought a bat, wedges → 1st place team’s outfield is scary

 ‘Baby Beast’ Choi Ji-hoon (25) is temporarily out of the team due to an ankle injury, and Choi Sang-min (23) is filling the void.

Choi Ji-hoon suffered an ankle injury while running base on the 29th of last month and missed the entry. It is not a serious injury, but he is accompanying the Gocheok expedition on the 5th. It is expected to return after ten days.

In the meantime, a player appeared to fill his place well. It is Choi Min-min.

On the 5th, Choi Sang-min was not listed in the starting lineup. But late in the game he played the same role as Altoran.

At the end of the 7th inning, when the team was leading 2-0, Choi Sang-min, who went into the center field defense instead of Choi Hang, caught Joo Seong-won’s batted ball and got the last out count at the bottom of the 7th inning.

And in the top of the ninth inning, an opportunity to hit came. Choi Jeong and Heredia’s consecutive hits came out. And the SSG bench directed a bunt to Hanyu-seom, who was not feeling good at hitting. I put a sacrifice bunt well, and I became 1 out, 2nd and 3rd base.

Then, the Kiwoom bench deliberately skipped the next hitter Park Seong-han with 4 pitches. It meant that he would deal with Choi Sang-min.

Choi Sang-min, who entered the at-bat with one out and bases loaded, watched Yang Hyun’s first pitch strike and picked out the ball in succession. On the 4th pitch he kicked two seams and made my foul. In the ball count of 2-2, the 5th ball 130km two-seam was well received. He broke through shortstop and became a left-handed hitter. It was a decisive and timely hit that put a wedge in the game.

Thanks to Choi Sang-min’s performance, SSG won 3-1 and kept its lead by running for 3 consecutive victories. In addition, they took victory on Children’s Day for three consecutive years.

In 2018, when he graduated from Cheonan Bukil High School, Choi Sang-min was not nominated. In the meantime, he was called by the SK Wyverns, the predecessor of SSG, and joined as a foster player.

After returning from military service, Choi Sang-min joined the 1st team spring camp for the first time in the 2022 season, and also stood on the 1st team stage. Although he did not attend the US spring camp this year, he was named in the opening roster for the first time in his career. As he established himself as a ‘backup outfielder’, he did not miss a single day from the first team entry.

When Choi Ji-hoon was injured, manager Kim Won-hyeong selected Choi Sang-min as the ‘substitute player’. He did not miss such an opportunity. Choi Sang-min recorded his first multi-hit since his debut against Incheon Doosan on the 29th of last month, and on this day, he created two runs in a row.

But on this day, there was a behind-the-scenes. Choi Sang-min hit with Choi Ji-hoon’s bat.

Choi Ji-hoon approached Choi Sang-min, who 먹튀검증 was having an interview after the game. Choi Ji-hoon shouted (?), “Hey, why did you bring this (bat) with you?” It was an ironic compliment that he was actually good.

Choi Sang-min explained the reason with a smile, “(Choi) Ji-hoon secretly took the bat that his brother gave him because it was broken.”

He said, “I was very nervous before standing at bat. In that situation, everyone wants to do well. I think I was more focused.” But it led to good results,” he said.

Regarding continuing to be on the 1st team stage, “I didn’t do much last year, but I think I’m getting used to it as I continue to be here this year. (Choi) Ji-hoon hyung and (Kim) Kang-min hyung take care of me really well. The coaches also When I do well, they praise me and give me lots of encouragement. Thanks to that, I think my confidence continues to grow,” he said proudly.
