Draft elimination → Fostering player → multi-hit → upset final three-run…Another ‘strongest baseball’ star was born, and it hit the eye in 2G

Kiwoom Heroes, led by head coach Hong Won-ki, won a thrilling 7-5 come-from-behind victory against the Samsung Lions in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 7th.

Won Sung-joon, the hero of the victory, gave his team a victory by hitting a three-run home run in the bottom of the seventh inning against Kim Tae-hoon, who went over the right fence with two outs and runners on first and second bases.핑크알바

As everyone knows, Won Seong-jun is now a first-team player. A graduate of Lee Soo-joong, Gyeonggi High School, and Sungkyunkwan University, he appears in JTBC’s entertainment program “The Greatest Baseball” and has some awareness among baseball fans.

However, he applied for the 2024 KBO Rookie Draft but failed because he did not receive support from any team. Then, he was given the opportunity to test Kiwoom’s nurturing player, and his dream to become a professional came true.

Won Seong-jun, who had a batting average of 0.317 19 hits, three homers, 12 RBIs and 12 runs scored in 26 Futures games, had the honor of making his debut in the first division at the same time as he became an official player in the first division on the 6th. In the match against the LG Twins in Jamsil on the 6th, he played as the seventh batter and starting center fielder.

Won Seong-jun, who played as an outfielder instead of an infielder in his main position, made two hits and one RBI from four times at bat even though he made an error in the fourth inning. He hit an RBI double off Choi Dong-hwan with two outs and a third base in the eighth inning, marking his first RBI since his debut.

Won Seong-jun, who started the game on Sunday, had two hits, three RBIs, one homer and two runs from four times at bat. In addition to the three-run homer that he garnered from Kim Tae-hoon in the seventh inning, he also had a double against veteran Lim Chang-min in the sixth inning. He also homered when Lim Byung-wook hit a double.

Players who were formerly part of the “strongest baseball” are showing off their stellar performance these days. Won Seong-jun’s teammate, infielder Ko Young-woo, has already established himself as a starting member. He has a batting average of 0.313 with 35 hits, 13 RBIs and 10 runs scored in 39 games. Hwang Young-mook of the Hanwha Eagles also played as a starting member, recording a batting average of 0.315 with 41 hits, one homer, 17 RBIs and 22 runs scored in 44 games.

Won Seong-jun, whom he met during the Kiwoom closing training held in Wonju, Gangwon-do last year, said, “I learned a lot while working with my seniors in ‘The Greatest Baseball’. After joining Kiwoom, each of my seniors gave me feedback and told me how to survive in the professional league. They said it was important to do it confidently and not be wary of others when you entered.”

Although only two games have been played, there are signs that another star from the “strongest baseball” will be born.

Let’s look forward to the future performance of Won Sung-joon, who plays baseball with earnestness as a former nurturing player.
