The most hits in my career is ‘-44’ “I want to wear a championship ring before I retire.”

Son Ah-seop records multiple hits

It was confirmed that Son Ah-seop (36, NC Dinos) set the record for the most multi-hits (two or more hits in a game) in the KBO League.

As of the 6th, Son Ah-seop had multiple hits in a total of 717 games, ranking first in this category. He beat 2nd place Park Yong-taek (retired, 713 games) by 4 games.

Third place is LG Twins Kim Hyun-soo (664 games), and fourth place is KIA Tigers Choi Hyeong-woo (647 games).

The 5th to 10th places are all retired players, including Yang Jun-hyuk (642 games), Lee Seung-yeop (615 games), Lee Dae-ho (613 games), Park Han-i (606 games), Kim Tae-gyun (599 games), and Lee Byeong-gyu (594 games).

Given that Son Ah-seop is still showing off his batting power even in his 18th year in the league, it seems possible that he could record an unprecedented 800 games.

Son A-seop, who debuted with the Lotte Giants in 2007, has a batting average of 0.322 (2,461 hits in 7,648 at-bats), 1,010 RBIs, and 1,337 runs in 2,08 games over 18 seasons as of the 6th.

Last year, he became the first player in the KBO League to achieve 150 hits in 8 consecutive seasons and also became the second player in history to record 200 bases in 11 consecutive seasons, following Lee Dae-ho.

This year, not only are they aiming to break records in both categories, but they are also aiming to become ‘No. 1 in total hits in the KBO League’.

If Son Ah-seop adds 44 hits, he will overtake Park Yong-taek (2,504) and rise to first place.

Son Ah-seop, who met at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 5th, said about the record for the most multi-hits, “This is my first time knowing this. I think it is a record that makes me feel even more grateful that I have been able to play healthily and consistently until now.”

Son Ah-seop, who had a bad start this season, gradually regained his batting skills and recovered his batting average to .300 through the SSG Landers game on the 4th.

The new multi-hit record was also possible thanks to the recent upward trend. On the 30th of last month, he rose to first place through the LG Twins game (2 hits in 5 at-bats), and from the 2nd to the 4th of this month, he exploded with multiple hits in 3 consecutive games.

Son Ah-seop said, “I am the captain and the most senior player, but I am sorry that I was not able to help the team last month. Starting this month, I have a strong desire to do well so that I can ease the burden on my juniors.”

Son Ah-seop, who won the batting title for the first time in his career last season,’s remaining goal is to win the Korean Series.

Son Ah-seop said, “As an individual, I have achieved everything I can. In the end, I think my baseball career will end well if I wear a championship ring. I really want to wear a championship ring before I retire.” 토토사이트
