NC Dinos’ Son As-seop (35) became the first KBO player to hit 150 hits in eight consecutive years.

Son completed the feat by batting leadoff in the first game of a doubleheader 카지노사이트 against the Lotte Giants of the 2023 Shinhan Bank Solar KBO League at NC Park in Changwon on Monday.

After lining out to shortstop in his first at-bat, he led off the bottom of the third inning with a single to left off Lotte starter Park Se-woong.

Son, who had 149 hits on the season the day before, reached the 150-hit plateau, becoming the first player in KBO history to reach 150 hits in eight consecutive years.

After tying Park Yong-taek (2012-2018) for the record with seven consecutive seasons last year, Son set a new KBO record by reaching 150 hits again this year.

Son has consistently hit over 150 hits every year since 2016, when he was a member of Lotte. His previous single-season record was 193 hits in 2017, when he led the league in hits.

The hit also gave Son his 200th RBI of the season.

Since 2013, he has reached 200 RBI in 11 consecutive seasons, tying him with Lee Dae-ho (2005-2020, 2012-2016, excluding overseas stints). 온라인카지노 If he hits 200 runs next year, he will become the first KBO player to hit 200 runs in 12 consecutive seasons.

Son picked up his 2379th career hit on Sunday, which puts him in first place for most hits among active players.

If he keeps up his pace, he could surpass Park Yong-taek’s record of 2504 hits next season.

On this day, however, Son was not smiling as his team fell to 2-5.

“First of all, I would like to thank those who supported and congratulated me on the record, and I think the record comes naturally when you play consistently,” Son said through the club.

He continued, “I scored a hit in the first game, but it didn’t lead to a team victory, so I won’t attach much meaning to it. Thank you for your support and I will continue to be a steady player,” he said, adding, “I will focus on winning the team and going to fall baseball rather than my personal record and other things, 카지노사이트존 and put all my energy on the field.”
