Choi Jung-soo has been named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League for the month of June. According to the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) on Tuesday, Choi received 21 out of 29 votes (72.4 per cent) from journalists and 155,287 votes (38.8 per cent) out of 402,000 fan votes for a total score of 55.62, earning him the monthly MVP honour for the first time in four years since June 2019.In June alone, he hit 11 home runs and led the league in batting average and on-base percentage… Choi’s bat hotter than four years ago
Choi is a player who gets stronger as the season progresses. Choi, who made her debut in 2005 and is now in her 19th season, usually shows off her firepower in June.
Last year, she hit .418, and when she won the MVP four years ago, she hit .447 with 10 home runs and 26 RBIs. In 2017, he hit .321 with 12 homers and 29 RBIs.
In the race for the lead, SSG topped the division in June with 34 team home runs. Choi alone was responsible for 11 of them. Choi also hit home runs in three consecutive games last month, from 22 June against Doosan in Jamsil to 24 June against Samsung Electronics in Munhak, and twice in back-to-back at-bats on 1 and 23 June.
It wasn’t all about the home runs. With 27 RBIs and a .787 OPS, he was also first in both categories, second in runs scored (23), fourth in on-base percentage (0.431), and in the top half of most other hitting metrics, including a .360 batting average and a 1.218 OPS.Choi aims for fourth home run title, now Lee in sight
Choi is getting older and more experienced, but his power hasn’t diminished. After winning the home run title for the second consecutive year with 40 in 2016 and 46 in 2017, Choi became the title holder again in 2021 with 35 home runs.
This season, she will attempt to win her fourth career home run title. He is currently tied with Hanwha’s Roh Si-hwan for first place in the category with 19 homers, thanks to an 11-homer blast in June.
Furthermore, at his current pace, he is on pace to reach 40 home runs this season, as well as the KBO record for most home runs in a career (467) set by Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop. Choi currently has 448 career home runs.
With another prime season ahead of him, Choi has also been selected as a Dream All-Star third baseman for the KBO’s Star-Studded Feast on the 15th.
The second half of the season will be even more exciting, as Choi could win his third consecutive Golden Glove and ninth overall if he finishes the season at his current pace.
For being named MVP in June, Choi will receive a cash prize of 2 million won, and a 2 million won donation will also be made in his name to Pyeongchon Middle School, his middle school, sponsored by Shinhan Bank.
