1,500 RBIs, 500 saves…Recorded first half professional baseball
There were many celebrations in the first half of professional baseball this season.
This is because of the records that will remain in the history of the KBO League.
hoi Hyung-woo, a big hitter of KIA, wrote the best record in the first half of professional baseball.
Choi Hyung-woo hit the 1,500-run mark for the first time last month.
It is the highest and first record ever, surpassing Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop’s 1,498 RBIs.
Choi Hyung-woo’s record, which has proved his value by continuing to overcome tough times such as joining as a catcher in 2003 and changing his position to a batter, has excited fans.
<Choi Hyung-woo / KIA outfielder> “I’ve been working really hard for 16 seasons. Even if I’m sick, I don’t show off…I think that’s why we had such a good record.”
Samsung’s Oh Seung-hwan made 500 saves in his career.
Since his professional debut in 2005, he has built a golden tower, which is more than 100 saves away from the league’s second place, including 378 in Korea, 80 in Japan, and 42 in the United States.

In addition, SSG infielder Choi Jung has already exploded 19 home runs in the first half, recording double-digit home runs for 18 consecutive seasons, the longest ever.
If he adds 19 home runs in the second half, he will become the No. 1 home run player in history with Lee Seung-yeop.
Among foreign pitchers, NC Pedi recorded a record of 10 wins in the minimum game in 30 years in the league.
The record march is expected to continue in the second half of professional baseball this season.
KIA Yang Hyun-jong is on the verge of breaking the record for most starts and NC Son Ah-seop is on the verge of breaking the record for most hits.
