“I really wanted to say hello to the fans, but I’m sorry.”
SSG Landers Choi Jeong-eun is the only player on the team to be selected as an All-Star ‘Best 12’. He received 1,049,808 fan votes and 222 player votes in the ‘Dream All-Star’ third baseman category, and scored an overwhelming 1st place with a total score of 49.48. It was his seventh All-Star Best selection since his debut.
Unfortunately, he did not participate in the All-Star Game. It was because of an injury sustained at the end of the first half. He couldn’t play because of a bubo injury while defending, and he tried to play in the All-Star game somehow, but even that was not possible. It was because of the judgment that recovery from injury was the top priority in a situation where he had to play in the second half right away.
Fortunately, Choi Jeong-eun, who rested and exercised during the All-Star break, improved a lot. Choi Jeong-eun, whom I met at Landers Field in Incheon on the 20th, said, “I have recovered about 90% now.” The SSG team rested for three days after the start of the All-Star break, but Choi Jeong-eun came to the baseball field the day before and exercised every day to check his physical condition. Throughout the team training period during the break, his batting and defense training were normally completed. It also helped a lot in his recovery.
However, it is a big regret that he did not go to the All-Star Game. Choi Jeong-eun said, “I’m sorry to the fans.” Choi Jeong-eun said, “I really worried a lot. To be honest, it wasn’t impossible to go to the All-Star game for a day or so. But I was mentally anxious, and I was impatient because of the injury. I had to check it, but I had a heart that I wanted to do.”
Of course, the failure to participate in the All-Star Game, the ‘Feast of the Stars’, was also disheartening. Choi Jeong-eun, with a face full of regret, said, “They chose me, and I was the only one selected as the best in our team, but I am very sorry and regretful. I wanted to say hello to him, but I couldn’t.”안전놀이터
But recovering from the injury came first. Fortunately, my condition has improved a lot, and showing good performance is the best way to repay the fans. SSG will begin its second half schedule starting with the LG Twins game in Jamsil on the 21st. Manager Kim Won-hyung explained, “Although Jung-i has almost recovered, he will only play as a designated hitter in LG’s 3-game series to prevent further injury.”
