SSG Landers’ Choi Jung (36) has set a new KBO record for the most runs scored by an individual.
Choi started at third base against the Daejeon Hanwha Eagles on June 6 and hit a bases-loaded double to left-center field in the top of the third inning for a 2-0 lead, then came home on Guillermo Heredia’s RBI double. One day after adding a run the day before, Lee moved into sole possession of first place on the all-time runs scored list with Lee Seung-yeop (now manager of the Doosan Bears) with 1355 runs.
Lee scored 1355 points in 15 seasons (2004-2011 – overseas) with the Samsung Lions from 1995 to 2017. Choi joined the SK Wyverns (now SSG) in 2005 and took 19 seasons to reach the top of the list.
Consistency paid off. Although she finished second in the category in 2012 with 85 points, she has never won the title of most points in a season. Still, he’s been consistent enough to finish in the top 10 eight times in his career.메이저사이트
Scoring runs is not a solo endeavor. You need to be a consistent part of the batting lineup to get help from your teammates. In addition to scoring runs, Choi has accumulated outstanding cumulative records in home runs, walks, and stolen bases.
In particular, she is on track to become the KBO’s all-time leader in home runs. With 454 career home runs, Choi ranks second all-time and first among active players. He is only 13 home runs away from the record holder, Lee Seung-yeop, who has 467. It won’t be easy for him to reach this milestone this season as he doesn’t have many games left, but he should be able to move up to the top of the career home run list at least early next season.
