SSG Landers’ Choi scored in the top of the third inning against the Hanwha Eagles in Daejeon on June 6. With SSG leading 1-0 and the bases loaded, Choi hit the first pitch he saw against Hanwha starting pitcher Lee Tae-yang for an RBI double.
He walked to load the bases with no outs. The very next batter, Guillermo Heredia, took another fastball from Lee Tae-yang and hit a double to deep left field, allowing Choi, who was on second base, to round third and come home. Runs scored.
Manager Kim Won-hyung, who was standing in front of the away dugout, handed Choi a bouquet of flowers, and Choi shook Kim’s hand to congratulate him.
It was Choi’s 1356th professional goal. This is a new KBO League record. The previous record was held by current Doosan Bears manager Lee Seung-yeop. Lee scored his 1355th point on October 3, 2017, against the Daegu Nexen Heroes. He retired from the game after that season.
Choi Jeong-jeong, who made his professional debut with the SK Wyverns in 2005, surpassed Lee’s record after 19 seasons. While Lee took a hiatus to play in Japan, Choi’s consistent play allowed him to reach the record at a younger age. Choi surpassed Lee’s record after 2144 career games, and every time he adds to his total, he reaches a new milestone in the KBO.
