Ranked first in batting with ‘0.341’! Beyond Yang Jun-hyuk, we walk towards Park Yong-taek and Lee Seung-yeop… ‘Resurrection’ The steps of a 35-year-old living legend [Busan People]

 NC Dinos Son Ah-seop has once again reached a meaningful milestone.

There is no shortage of things to call Son Ah-seop in 2023 a ‘resurrection’.

토토사이트Last year, he left his beloved Lotte Giants and changed his uniform to NC for up to 6.4 billion won over 4 years. Did the burden of FA weigh on his shoulders? I faced the harsh reality of career low.

The batting average was below .208, and the OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) barely stayed at 0.7. Although he was named in the top 5 every year, the most hits was only 152 (12th). It was impossible to avoid the assessment that the aging curve had entered a downward trend.

I gritted my teeth last winter. He says his mind is filled with only thoughts about baseball. His grit and pride are unrivaled. I visited the baseball academy of Jung-ho Kang (former Pittsburgh Pirates) and received his special training.

He completely regained his form this season. Son Ah-seop played as the first batter and right fielder against the Busan Lotte Giants on the 12th, leading the team to victory with 2 hits and 2 runs in 6 at-bats. He played a leading role in the team’s attack along with Park Min-woo.

With a batting average of .304.1, he rose to the top spot in batting, beating SSG Heredia (.304), who was sluggish with no hits in 3 at-bats the previous day, and LG Hong Chang-gi (.303.9), who had no games. Son Ah-seop ranked first in hits three times in 2012, 2013, and 2017, but he had no connection with the batting king. His best finishes were 2nd place in 2013 and 2020.

Before I knew it, my steps had become a new milestone, my age. On the 9th, against Changwon Lotte, he hit his 150th hit this season, setting an unprecedented record in the KBO League of 150 hits for 8 consecutive years. It was a record that surpassed the 7 consecutive seasons previously recorded by Park Yong-taek (former LG).

A self-proclaimed hit maker, he has 2,385 career hits. This year, there is only one person ahead of him who surpassed Yang Jun-hyuk (2,318) and is ranked first in total, Park Yong-taek (2,504).

On this day, Son Ah-seop achieved 1,300 points, surpassing Yang Jun-hyuk (1,299) and rising to third place in the scoring category. Second-place Lee Seung-yeop (1,355) is also visible. It is expected that there will be fierce competition with 1st place Choi Jeong (1,357) as he is one year older than his senior/junior.

In order to add your name to the league record, you must maintain good health as well as maintain consistent skills. Previously, Lee Jeong-hoo (Kiwoom) also continued his streak of 150 hits for six consecutive years since his debut until last year, but his record was interrupted this year when he was out for the season due to an ankle injury.

He is also doing an excellent job of playing the role of captain, which he gave up due to the pressure during his time at Lotte. NC has already caught up with KT Wiz by a half-mile and is looking to move up to second place. Coach Kang In-kwon’s excellent leadership and season management, as well as the captain’s encouragement and leading by example in everything, are also indispensable contributions.
