His batting average is in the 10% range. It can be said that it is a failing point as a top hitter. However, the on-base percentage is over 60%. It is the best for a top hitter.
SSG Landers veteran Choo Shin-soo (41) has a bizarre (?) hitting stat at the beginning of the season. Although the sample is small, it is rare.
Choo Shin-soo has been playing as a top hitter since the opening game. He went 1-for-6 with a batting average of 1.6 and 7 in three games. However, while he only had one hit, he picked up six walks. He also has 1 dune. He has an on-base percentage of .615.
Shin-soo Choo’s batting average is tied for 61st among 77 players who completed the required at-bats, but his on-base percentage is second overall. Hong Chang-ki of LG is 1st in the entire league with an on-base percentage of .696 with 7 hits in 14 at-bats (batting average of 50%), 6 walks and 3 walks.
In the opening game against KIA on the 1st, Choo Shin-soo pulled Anderson’s 152km fastball at the end of the first inning and fired a home run by the lead batter over the right wall. It was the first celebration of the 2023 KBO League.
Since then, he has not added a hit. He picked two walks after a home run in the game on the 1st, and had no hits and 3 walks in 2 at bats against KIA on the 2nd. In the match against Lotte on the 4th, he went on base at least twice in each game with no hits in 2 at bats, 1 walk and 1 walk.
SSG coach Kim Won-hyung said, “There are few hits, but the feeling of hitting is not bad. If he doesn’t feel good at hitting, he can’t even get a walk. Choo Shin-soo noted that he knows what he is going to do.”
He has been known as a leading pitcher since his days in the major leagues, and picks up walks calmly without rushing. 6 walks are the most in the league along with Hong Chang-ki. Hong Chang-ki played 5 games, and Choo Shin-soo played 3 games, the same number.
Choo Shin-soo, who played 16 seasons in the major leagues and came to the KBO league, is in his third season this year. Choo Shin-soo, who spent spring camps in Florida, USA and Okinawa, Japan, spent the camp more satisfactorily than any other year. 먹튀검증
In 2021, he signed a contract with SSG at the end of February, and after entering the country, he went through a corona quarantine period and joined the team in the middle of the demonstration game. In 2022, he was not in good shape at spring camp due to elbow surgery and rehabilitation.
Prior to the season, Choo Shin-soo said, “I started the camp in a relaxed way, so it wasn’t too difficult to raise my condition mentally and physically, and it was okay because I didn’t overdo it with my body.”
Choo Shin-soo recorded a batting average of .409 in the 2021 season with 21 home runs. Last year, he fell slightly to a batting average of 2.5 9 with 16 homers and an on-base percentage of .382. As the oldest hitter in the KBO League, attention is focusing on what records he will set this season.
