The discomfort caused by neck phlegm is not a problem at all. Son Ah-seop (35), the ‘captain’ of the dinosaur army, made his presence known with a hit from his first at-bat. And he finished first in the league in the most hits category in the 2023 season. This is the fourth time in his career that he has ranked first in most hits of the season.
Son Ah-seop started as the number one hitter and right fielder on the first day of the final two-game series against KIA in the 2023 KBO League held at Gwangju-KIA Champions Field on the 16th and reported a hit from the first at-bat.
Son Ah-seop, who took the leadoff spot on this day, hit a 143km fastball on the second pitch from KIA starting pitcher Lee Ui-ri in the top of the first inning and hit an infield hit that went to the right of the pitcher. NC opened the attack with leadoff hitter Son A-seop on base, and after two outs, Jason Martin got a walk, putting the runners on first and second base with two outs. In the next at-bat, Hee-dong Kwon hit a timely double with two RBIs, taking the lead to 2-0. Got it.
With this hit, Son Ah-seop ranked first in the league for most hits this season (187). Second place is Kiwoom Kim Hye-seong (186), and third place is LG Hong Chang-gi (174). In the case of Kim Hye-sung and Hong Chang-ki, they have completed all of their regular league games, so Son Ah-seop has virtually confirmed ‘1st place’.스포츠토토
In addition, Son Ah-seop ranked first in most hits for the fourth time in his career, following the 2012, 2013, and 2017 seasons. Additionally, the record for most hits in a KBO season in history is Lee Byung-gyu (LG), who recorded a total of 4 times (1999-2001 season, 2005 season). Son Ah-seop became tied for first place with the most hits of the season, four times.
Meanwhile, as the top of the third inning progresses, NC, where Son Ah-seop started the attack, is ahead 2-0 over KIA.
