KIA’s oldest outfielder Choi Hyung-woo (40) showed off his long hitting power that does not rust even at an unforgiving age.

Choi Hyung-woo is 40 years old this year.토토사이트 In particular, 2023 is a more meaningful year because it is the last year when his second free agent contract ends. But age cannot be ignored. Somehow, compared to his prime, his athletic abilities such as bat speed and ball flight distance are gradually declining.

To make up for this, Hyeong-woo Choi raised his pace faster than in his previous years. Choi Hyung-woo usually improved his condition more slowly than other players, but this year was different. Until last year, he started playing in the middle of the demonstration game, but this year, he participated in the Okinawa spring camp practice game. He was unusually out twice. Total of 2 games, 3 at-bats, 2 hits, 1 RBI. And in the exhibition game that opened on the 13th, he showed passion by going out to all 2 games and digesting 3 at-bats.

Choi Hyung-woo started the demonstration game against Hanhwa the previous day (13th) with no hits in 3 at-bats, but he showed off his long hitting power by hitting two doubles that day.

Choi Hyeong-woo, who started as the third hitter and left fielder, played an active role with 2 hits and 1 walk in 2 at-bats. 100% on base

In the first at-bat with two outs in the first inning, Choi Hyung-woo pushed the breaking ball of Hanwha foreign pitcher Butts Smith and hit a double toward left fielder. However, it did not lead to a run as Socrates struck out.

Choi Hyung-woo’s bat spewed fire again. In the 4th inning, when the team was drawn 0-2, on first base without a hit, Smith pulled a fastball that came high into his body and sent the ball to the right. It was a long shot this time too. He capped off his second double. Hyung-Woo Choi’s double put them on second and third base safely, and Socrates’ sacrifice fly started the chase. His run didn’t end there. After picking out a straight walk from Han Seung-ju in the 6th inning 2nd out, he was replaced by Kim Seok-hwan and finished the game.

KIA succeeded in a big inning with 4 points in the 7th inning, and completed the band electrode by adding 3 points in the 9th inning.

After the game, Choi Hyung-woo said, “I am satisfied because I have been preparing well since the camp until now. I think it is important to maintain the current batting condition well until the start of the season.”

Choi Hyung-woo said, “This season, I think I need to raise more RBIs in chance situations. Rather than personal goals, I will do my best so that the team can play fall baseball without injury.”
