Oh Seung-hwan Sets All-Star Game Record for Oldest Player

A variety of sparkling records poured out at the feast of stars.

Samsung Lions’ closing pitcher Oh Seung-hwan set a record for oldest player to play in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO All-Star Game held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 6th.

Oh Seung-hwan, the 10th pitcher for the Dream All-Stars, appeared in the top of the ninth with one out and his team down 2-4, pitching ⅔ innings, allowing one hit and no runs.

Oh Seung-hwan, who played at the age of 41 years, 11 months and 21 days, rewrote the record for oldest player to play in the All-Star Game, beating out Yang Jun-hyeok (41 years, 1 month and 28 days, Samsung at the time) in 2010.

He also attempted to surpass the oldest All-Star save (35 years, 2 months, and 16 days), set by Gye Hyeong-cheol (then of the OB Bears) in 1988, but failed to achieve his goal as the team lost.

Oh Seung-hwan already holds numerous ‘oldest records’.

He set the record for oldest player to reach 40 saves in a season and oldest player to win the saves title in 2021.

In addition, he could also achieve a new KBO League record for oldest save by pushing out Lim Chang-yong (42 years old and 3 days old, then KIA Tigers) in 2018 this month.

Even this season, when he is well into his 40s, he is still guarding Samsung’s back door firmly.

He is currently in first place with the most saves, having appeared in 37 games in the first half, recording 1 win, 5 losses, 24 saves, and an ERA of 3.79.

LG Twins’ main hitter Kim Hyun-soo tied the record for longest consecutive appearances.

He came in as a defensive substitute for Nanum All-Star Jonathan Peraza (Hanwha Eagles) in the bottom of the 5th inning, setting a record of 13 consecutive appearances, tying Yang Jun-hyeok (1995-2007).

Kim Hyun-soo has been selected to the All-Star team 15 times, tying him for the most selections with Yang Jun-hyuk.

Choi Hyeong-woo (KIA), who was selected as Mr. All-Star (MVP) at the age of 40 years, 6 months, and 20 days, surpassed Lee Byeong-gyu (current Samsung 2nd team manager, 36 years, 8 months, and 28 days at the time) in 2011 to become the oldest MVP of the All-Star Game.

Choi Hyeong-woo had a great performance that day, hitting 3 hits in 4 at-bats, 2 RBIs, and 1 run, including a solo home run in the 2nd inning. 카지노사이트
