‘Oldest Mr. All-Star’ Choi Hyung-woo “I can do it even when I’m old”

Mr. Allstar Choi Hyung-woo

Choi Hyeong-woo (KIA Tigers) has become an example for his juniors once again by being named the ‘Oldest Mr. All-Star‘.

Choi Hyeong-woo was selected as Mr. All-Star (MVP) at the KBO All-Star Game held at Incheon SSG Landers Field on the 6th, with 3 hits, 2 RBIs, and 1 run in 4 at-bats.

With this, Choi Hyeong-woo set the record for oldest MVP (40 years, 6 months, 20 days), surpassing Lee Byeong-gyu (36 years, 8 months, 28 days) in 2011.

Choi Hyeong-woo, who holds the KBO League career RBI title, is challenging for the oldest RBI title by leading the league in RBIs (73) in the regular season this year.

Choi Hyeong-woo, whom we met after the awards ceremony that day, said, “I think it would be good if the juniors felt that they could come out to places like this and do things even when they get older.”

Choi Hyung-woo said, “Honestly, I came here feeling embarrassed because I am so old,” and “I saw the young players performing so hard and I thought, ‘Do I deserve to be here?’”

He compared it by saying, “I think the performance culture has become stronger than before. In the past, even if we did something, we kept it short and finished it quickly, but now everyone is having fun and laughing.”

However, Choi Hyeong-woo, who was shy, is said to have become greedy for the MVP award as he was completely immersed in the festival atmosphere, like his clothes getting wet in a drizzle.

He hit a solo home run in the second inning and confirmed his MVP award with a timely hit in the eighth inning to make it 3-2.

Choi Hyeong-woo, who confessed that he wanted to receive an MVP award because he had never received one before, said that he joked with Jeon Sang-hyun (KIA), who was coming in as a relief pitcher in the bottom of the 8th inning, saying, “Just block it no matter what. If you give him a run, he’ll get in trouble.”

The second solo home run was accompanied by memories with the kids.

Choi Hyeong-woo, who received a helmet and bat from his son and daughter, used the abundant supplies to hit a solo home run to take the lead.

Choi Hyeong-woo recalled happily, “It was my first time performing with children at an official event, so I was a bit flustered and finished the performance, but then I hit a home run on the first pitch.”

Choi Hyeong-woo, who had a pleasant All-Star break, now aims to continue his momentum into the second half of the season.

With KIA taking first place in the first half of the season for the first time in seven years since 2017, Choi Hyeong-woo is also performing well with a batting average of 0.286 and 16 home runs.

Choi Hyeong-woo said, “It was a perfect first half for me personally and as a team,” and expressed his determination by saying, “I will work hard to finish the second half like this by following up on the details.” 해외 카지노 사이트
