16 All-Stars who played the KBO All-Star Game for the first time this year. Although it is his first All-Star appearance in his career, he is already catching the attention of fans.
The 2023 Shinhan Bank Sol KBO All-Star Game will be held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 15th. This is the first all-star game to be held at Sajik Stadium in 16 years since 2007.
Dream All-Stars led by SSG Landers coach Kim Won-hyung and Sharing All-Stars led by Kiwoom Heroes Hong Won-ki each confirmed 26 All-Stars. Among them, 16 all-stars will step on the dream stage for the first time.
The most eye-catching is Noh Kyung-eun (SSG), who won the All-Star honor after 21 years of debut. Noh Kyung-eun, who first started professionally in a Doosan uniform in 2003, has been active for 17 years, but he has never been selected for the All-Star Game.
Noh Kyung-eun was not invited even in 2012, when he had a career-high season with 12 wins and an average ERA of 2.53, and last season, when he won double-digit wins for the first time in 8 years, was also untouched.
However, in the first half of this year, Noh Kyung-eun, who is running for first place in the hold division by collecting 18 holds, will finally go to the baseball festival this season.
National submarine submarine Koh Young-pyo (KT Wiz) played an ace-class performance in 2021 and contributed to KT’s unified championship, and won 13 wins the following year, setting a record for the most wins in a single season in his personal career. However, this is the first time he has been named to the All-Star roster this season.
This year, Koh Young-pyo is showing off his strength by recording 8 wins, 5 losses and an average ERA of 2.78 in 17 games.
Lee Woo-seong (KIA Tigers), who rose from the sadness of his 10,000 years of backup this season, also received an invitation to the All-Star Game for the first time. Lee Woo-sung, who started as a starting pitcher to fill the gap left by Na Seong-beom’s injury at the beginning of the season, showed his true value and wielded .300 hits in May and June.메이저사이트
Moon Dong-ju (Hanwha Eagles) and Choi Ji-min (KIA), who are considered the future of the Korean baseball mound, are also drawing attention for their first appearance in the All-Star Game.
Moon Dong-ju, who is playing his first full-time season this year, is cruising with a 3.47 earned run average of 6 wins and 6 losses in 16 starts. Choi Ji-min, who achieved high-speed growth, showed his presence as a winning group, recording 3 wins, 2 losses, 3 saves and 6 holds, and an average ERA of 1.70.
Moon Dong-ju and Choi Ji-min are also considered candidates for Rookie of the Year and are competing in good faith.
