If you have success, you have failure, but I think you wanted to succeed and were afraid to fail.”

Choo Shin-soo (SSG Landers) started the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League KT Wiz match at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 26th and recorded three hits, one home run, two RBIs and one run in four times at bat.메이저사이트

Choo grounded out to the second base at his first at bat. However, he swung his bat afterwards. With runners on the second base with two outs in the bottom of the third inning with his team leading 1-0, he took the batter’s box and hit Um Sang-baek’s two-pitch 145 km/h four-seam fastball to hit the homer over the central fence. It was Choo’s first homer of this season.

Afterwards, he completed multiple hits with an infield hit by the third baseman with one out and no runner at the bottom of the fifth inning. In the bottom of the eighth inning, when his team was leading 4-2, he came out as the lead-off batter and hit a hit in front of the right field to post three hits. Afterwards, he was replaced by pinch-runner Choi Kyung-mo and finished the game on the day. Choi stole the second base and made a throwing error by catcher Kang Baek-ho, who made it to the third base, and Han Yu-seom’s timely RBI sealed the victory. SSG won 5-2.

During the opening game, Choo was out of his capacity for a while due to incontinence in the ring finger of his right hand. He returned to action at the match against the Kiwoom Heroes in Incheon on April 11. He then had multiple hits at the match against the KT in Suwon on April 13, and added one hit the following day, recording a total of 1999 hits between Korea and the U.S.

However, since then, no news of Choo’s hit has been heard, and he finally hit a hit in the match against the Lotte Giants in Busan on the 24th, setting a career record of 2,000 hits in Korea and the U.S. The next day, he bowed his head with no hit in four times at bat, but he played his first three-hit game of the season on the day, signaling his revival.

After the game, Choo said, “I always try to be helpful to the team. I’m thinking about changing it in various directions because I’ve been in a bad condition lately. The manager is a left-handed hitter, a very good player, and he has been a player for a long time, so I got a lot of advice on that,” adding, “I thought I could learn things about taking care of my physical condition and at-bats. I’ve been asking a lot about it.”

SSG teammates also worried a lot about the team’s poor performance as the captain and eldest brother. “My younger members were also very worried about me, maybe I felt sorry for them,” Choo said. “I listen to them well, so listening to them gave me strength even when I had a hard time,” adding, “We are like family and one team. Maybe that’s why I got better today.”

Through the three-hit game, Choo has regained some of his confidence. “I wish I could play baseball just because I did a good job today. I have a lot of experience going back and forth between heaven and hell, so I don’t think I can say anything easily,” he said. “However, I think today’s game will bring back some level of confidence and what I have been doing.”

The home run on the day was the result of aggressive competition in a fast count. “I thought to myself that I should do it more actively during today’s training. As I hesitated too much, I also hesitated about hitting balls that I could hit,” Choo said. “If you succeed, you always fail. But I wanted to succeed and was afraid of failure. That’s why I changed my mind and I think I got a little better result.”
