‘Who was the person who made Choi Hyung-woo flinch?’ Choi Hyeong-woo, who is leading the KIA Tigers line-up this season in his 22nd year of professional debut, moved to the ground after arriving at Jamsil Stadium.
On the 13th, the match between Doosan Bears and KIA Tigers was held at Jamsil Stadium. While the home team’s Doosan players are in the middle of batting training, the away team’s KIA players also unpacked in the third base dugout after arriving at the stadium.
Captain Kim Seon-bin was the first to visit the Doosan camp and exchange greetings with the coaches. Choi Hyeong-woo, who came out after him, also greeted old teacher Kim Han-soo, senior coach, and former captain Kim Joo-chan, with a bright expression.
Although the uniform he is wearing is different, Choi Hyung-woo has a deep relationship with senior coach Kim Han-soo and coach Kim Joo-chan. Choi Hyung-woo, who debuted as a pro in 2002 in the 2nd 6th round, wearing a Samsung Lions uniform, played only 4 games in the 1st team that year. Choi Hyung-woo, who sweated while watching senior captain Kim Han-soo win the Korean Series, became a starting pitcher in 2008 and grew into a central batsman for the Samsung Lions.
Senior Kim Han-soo started his leadership career in 2008 after his retirement, starting with Samsung’s 2nd team batting coach. He served as the first-team hitting coach from 2011 to 2016 and manager of the Samsung Lions from 2017 to 2019.
When Chief Kim was in charge of hitting coach for Samsung, Hyung-woo Choi hit more than 20 home runs from the 2011 season to the 2016 season, excluding the 2012 season (14 home runs), and grew into the best left-handed hitter in the league.
Choi Hyeong-woo, who debuted as a pro for 22 years, was also a disciple with a lot of aegyo in front of his old teacher, Kim Han-soo.
Ahead of the 2017 season, he signed a 4-year free agent contract with the KIA Tigers for a total of 10 billion won, becoming the first 10 billion hitter in KBO League history.
After moving to KIA, Choi Hyeong-woo was delighted to win the Korean Series with then-captain Kim Joo-chan and coach Kim Joo-chan.
Coach Kim Joo-chan, who is now walking the path of a leader after retirement, is putting on a Doosan Bears uniform with senior Kim Han-soo, another person who has a deep relationship with Choi Hyung-woo, and is concentrating on nurturing juniors.먹튀검증
Choi Hyeong-woo, the oldest Tigers member, was a disciple with a lot of aegyo in front of his old teacher whom he met after a long time. Coach Kim Joo-chan even kicked (?) with love for Hyung-woo Choi, who boasted of his strong arm muscles. Choi Hyung-woo also smiled brightly at his older brother’s joke that he trusted and followed.
It is a professional world where you can only laugh when you beat each other every day, but Choi Hyeong-woo, Kim Han-soo, and Kim Joo-chan, who met before the game, put aside the game for a while and shared warm feelings.
