He is the only player who had 200 hits in a single season in the KBO league. He received the Golden Glove Award at second base three times in 2012, 2014 and 2016, and even received Rookie of the Year and MVP award. He was once the best second baseman and batter representing the league. Had he gone smoothly, he would have won the FA (free agent) jackpot and won success, but he is looking for a new team as invincible.
The 2023 season, which started with no application for FA, ended in a disastrous failure. He played in only 44 games. He had a batting average of 20%, 22 hits, 12 RBIs, 14 runs scored, and three steals. He failed to display competitiveness even in his backup. His team LG Twins lifted the trophy for the first time in 29 years, but did not have his place.
He spent 93 days registered in the first division this season. He spent longer in the second division. 안전놀이터
Seo Geon-chang, a 34-year-old infielder, was released from LG last week. “I thought I would have no more chance to play next year than I did this year,” said Yeom Kyung-yeop, an LG manager who joined Seo Geon-chang in the two teams of Heroes and LG. I thought it would be a good idea to find another way, so I consulted with Cha Myung-seok, the team’s general manager, to resolve the issue.
After his heyday, his defense range at second base has significantly decreased. His batting ability has also been significantly reduced. There is no team that can take Seo as the main second baseman. “We are looking for a team that can compete and give chances. It is not an easy task.
“I saw good old performances in the second half of the year. If I can revive my previous hitting sense, I am highly competitive,” Yeom said. Those are his positive remarks full of affection.
If this isn’t the end, we need to find a team.
There is a realistic alternative. It’s Kiwoom Heroes. Seo Geon-chang is a team with 201 hits and 135 points.
For now, Seo is searching for another team. It seems that he pushed the Heroes to the final option.
Heroes hope Seo Kun-chang will return to burn the last flame and finish as a Heroes player. We need a cool-headed reality recognition.
Seo Kun-chang, a graduate of Gwangju Jeil High School, joined LG in 2008 and played in one game. He played at just one at-bats and struck out. There was a gap of three years afterwards. After completing his mandatory military service, he joined the Heroes as a training player and opened a new world. In 2012, he recorded a batting average of 266 (115 hits in 433 times at bat), 40 RBIs, 39 steals (2nd), and 70 points (8th) in 127 games, becoming the Rookie of the Year.
Seo had nothing to fear in 2014. He set a new record of 201 hits-135 points, the most hits and most scores in the KBO League. He was also the MVP.
I thought I would see the end in Heroes, but another way was waiting. I moved to LG, where I started as a professional player, and started anew, but it did not meet expectations.
