The 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League kicks off on April 1st. As the KBO League, which celebrated its 40th anniversary last year, is taking its first step toward the next 40 years, expectations are high for new records to be written.
▲SSG Kim Kwang-Hyun, ‘-1’ up to 150 wins…The record for the minimum game is also in front of you
. The previous record of winning at least 150 games was 347 held by Jeong Min-cheol (former Hanwha). There are only four pitchers who have recorded 150 wins in the KBO League in the past, from Song Jin-woo (former Hanwha) in the 2002 season to Yang Hyeon-jong (KIA) in the 2022 season. Kim Gwang-hyun’s first win this season will go down in history as the fifth 150-win pitcher in the league.
born in 1999, born in the year of the rabbit, are drawing attention.메이저사이트 LG Jung Woo-young, who ranked 3rd in the most holds in a single season with 35 holds last season, is on the verge of achieving 100 holds in his personal career. If Jung Woo-young adds two holds, he will win the title as the youngest, about two years ahead of Hanwha Jung Woo-ram (25 years, 11 months, 17 days), the youngest holder of the 100-hold record.
Jeong Cheol-won (Doosan), who recorded the most holds in his debut season and won the Rookie of the Year, and Ahn Woo-jin (Kiwoom), who won the 2022 KBO Golden Glove, were also born in 1999. It is worth looking forward to what kind of record he will build this year as he is in charge of the winning team and starting pitcher for each team.
The momentum of the players born in 1987, who have a brilliant reputation, is also formidable. Kiwoom Won Jong-hyun challenges to play 50 games in 8 consecutive seasons for the 4th time in his career. Lotte Cha Woo-chan is also aiming for the 7th place in his personal career with 87 strikeouts and 1,500 strikeouts.
▲ As of the 31st,
a total of 574 players in the KBO league recorded 9,684 saves. There are 299 left until 10,000 saves in the league. The player who records the 299th save across 10 clubs this season becomes the holder of a unique record to achieve 10,000 saves in the KBO league.
▲LG Jin Hae-soo challenges the league record for the most individual holds
LG Jin Hae-soo, who recorded 150 holds until last season, is aiming for the highest individual hold position. If you add 28 more holds this season, you will win the title with the most holds in your personal career, surpassing the previous record holder An Ji-man (former Samsung, 177 holds).
▲’Lion King’ Lee Seung-yeop, the KBO league’s most RBI and scoring new hero,
KIA Choi Hyung-woo has 39 RBIs in the personal 1500 RBI notice. If Choi Hyeong-woo achieves that record, he will surpass Lee Seung-yeop’s (former Samsung) record of 1498 RBIs and rise to the top of the league’s total RBIs. The record for the most doubles is also in sight. Up to the previous record of 464 (former Samsung Lee Seung-yeop), only one double was left. From the second double that Hyung-Woo Choi will make in the future, it will be reflected as the record for the most doubles in the KBO League.
SSG Choi Jeong-eun, who is currently recording 1274 points, will secure second place in total scoring, surpassing Yang Jun-hyeok (former Samsung, 1299 points), if she adds 26 points this season. If Choi Jeong shows the same scoring pace as last year this year, he will be able to surpass Lee Seung-yeop’s highest score (1,355 points) and become the league’s all-time leader in that category.
▲ Adding a new record to a new record
Samsung Oh Seung-hwan is expected to continue his fight against himself this year as well. Oh Seung-hwan, who already holds the record for the most saves in the KBO League, has 30 left to his personal career of 400 saves. He received the award for the most saves in his career (6 times), and attention is focusing on whether Oh Seung-hwan, who has established himself as the “end plate captain” both in name and reality, will be able to set another record.
Hanwha Jung Woo-ram is also planning to rewrite his record. Jung Woo-ram, who currently holds the record for the most appearances with 952 business trips, left only 48 games in the league’s first 1,000 business trips.
