I got Bruises Once a Week for 20 Years... Another Great Record from Choi Jeong-eun

Choi Jeong becomes the first Korean-American professional baseball player to record 330 outs... Fracture ahead of 468 home runs

The weight of a professional baseball official ball is only about 143g, but if thrown at a speed exceeding 140 km/h, it turns into a weapon.

A batter hit by a pitch receives tons of shock and injures his body.

It's natural to get bruised. 카지노

Injuries such as broken bones and torn muscles are also common.

There are also cases of people dying from being hit by a ball.

In 1920, Ray Chapman, a shortstop for the Cleveland Indians of the Major League Baseball (MLB), died after being struck in the head by a ball thrown by the New York Yankees' Carl Mays.

Professional baseball batters stand at bat with extreme fear of being hit by a ball thrown by a pitcher.

Professional baseball players fight against pain and fear.

There is a player who has experienced the pain of being hit by a ball once a week for the past 20 years.

This is Choi Jeong (37), the leading hitter of the SSG Landers, who is on the verge of setting a new personal home run record in the KBO League.

Choi Jeong-eun, who joined SK Wyverns (now SSG) in 2005, recorded a particularly large number of dead balls.

Starting with two dead balls in 2005, he was hit by a ball that hit his body about 20 times a year.

Choi Jeong’s sand dune record is unrivaled.

He was hit by a pitch 330 times in 2,184 games until the 17th.

He suffered from excruciating pain about once every 6.6 games.

His record is unparalleled not only in the KBO league but also in major professional leagues around the world.

The MLB record for the most walks is Huey Jennings' 287, and in Japanese professional baseball, Kazuhiro Kiyohara's record of 196 is the most.

Choi Jeong quickly surpassed the Japanese and American records.

The reason Choi Jeong records so many dead balls is because of his unique batting form.

During his career, he perfected the optimal batting form of swinging while sticking to home base.

Choi Jeong became the best hitter in the league with this batting form, but there was also a problem.

He hit so close to the base that it was difficult to avoid balls to his body.

Choi Jeong tried to modify his batting form several times to reduce the risk of injury and throw out balls, but failed each time due to balance issues, and in the end, he is hitting with balls that fit his body.

Even though Choi Jeong was hit by a pitcher's pitch once a week for 20 years, he got up again and again.

Overcoming the pain and fear that crushed his bones, he fought the pitcher.

Choi Jeong's record of tying the most home runs (467) in his KBO League career against the KIA Tigers on the 16th is even more meaningful because he overcame the fear of being hit by a ball.

Coincidentally, Choi Jeong-eun collapsed on a bases-loaded ball in his first at-bat on the 17th, when he attempted to set a new KBO personal home run record.

Choi Jeong-eun was hit by a ball thrown by opposing starter William Crowe in his first at-bat in the bottom of the first inning in a home game against KIA held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon, trailing 0-2.

With a ball count of 1 strike, he was hit squarely in the left side by a 150 km/h two-seam fastball on the second pitch and collapsed.

A detailed examination revealed microfractures in his ribs. He is unlikely to be able to play for about a month or more.

The challenge of setting a new home run record was put on pause for a while.

However, Choi Jeong became the first professional baseball player in Korea, the United States, and Japan to reach the 330-ball mark.

It is a trace of a challenge as valuable and meaningful as the home run record.
