NC Son A-seop, 5th double hit 400 notice… The challenge for the most double hit continues

Son A-seop (35, NC Dinos) achieved a record of 400 doubles in his personal career.

In the 2023 KBO League regular season home game against the Samsung Lions held at NC Park in Changwon, Gyeongnam on the 20th, Son Ah-seop started as the first hitter and right fielder and scored a double in the first at-bat at the end of the first inning. He, who had recorded 399 doubles in his career before the game, reached 400 with these doubles.

400 doubles is the 5th record in KBO league history. Yang Jun-hyeok (then Samsung) recorded it for the first time in 2007, Lee Seung-yeop (then Samsung) in 2015, Park Yong-taek (then LG Twins) in 2018, and Choi Hyung-woo (KIA Tigers) in 2020. All of them are big hitters representing the KBO League. Kim Tae-gyun (399), who was tied for 5th place with Son A-seop, was also overtaken.

400 is the fifth, but Son Ah-seop is the youngest. At the age of 35 years and 2 months, he became the youngest of them all to break the record.먹튀검증

This record is possible because he showed both sophistication and power. Lee Seung-yeop and Choi Hyeong-woo are long hitters who represent the history of the KBO League, and Yang Jun-hyeok also hit 300 homers. Park Yong-taek is a pinch hitter who has shown sophistication and mid-to-long-distance hitting throughout his active career, although his long hitting power is inferior to that of previous hitters. Son A-seop, with a career batting average of 0.320, is also a mid-to-long-distance hitter with 169 homers and relatively poor long-distance hitting power, but after steadily accumulating records, he reached the 400 mark. This season, too, the batting average of 0.303 is continuing until the match.

He is also steadily accumulating career hits. He is hitting 2,275 hits before this game. He may have more than 2300 hits all season. Park Yong-taek’s record of 2,504 hits is just around the corner.

All that remains is to challenge for first place in this category. Currently, Choi Hyeong-woo (471), who is still playing as an active player, is in first place. Lee Seung-yeop is followed by 464, Yang Jun-hyeok with 458, and Park Yong-taek with 441. Son Ah-seop recorded 29 doubles each over the past two years, and made his 11th double this season. If you hit around 30 each year, within 3-4 years, Choi Hyung-woo’s record for the most can come into view.
