leading professional baseball in six days after catching Kiwoom . Choi Hyung-woo, who graduated from Jeonju High School and joined Samsung with the 48th pick in the 2nd round of the 6th round in the 2002 rookie draft, was released after the 2005 season without showing much performance after joining. Afterwards, Choi Hyung-woo, who enlisted in the National Police Agency and showed his batting talent belatedly on the stage of the 2nd Army, rejoined Samsung in 2008 and became the rookie of the year that year. Since then, Choi Hyeong-woo has established himself as a left-handed hitter representing the KBO League by combining precise contact and explosive power. Choi Hyung-woo’s career batting average reached 0.312 and he hit 359 home runs. Samsung, led by Choi Hyung-woo, won the unified championship for four consecutive years from 2011 to 2014, opening the era of the ‘Samsung Dynasty’.
After the 2016 season, 메이저놀이터Hyung-Woo Choi signed a free agent contract worth 10 billion won (4 years, 10 billion won) for the first time in KIA and KBO league history, and after the 2020 season, he signed a new free agent contract for a total of 4.7 billion won over 3 years. This season is the final season of Hyung-Woo Choi’s second FA contract. Choi Hyung-woo, who has become accustomed to wearing a red uniform rather than a blue uniform, led the series sweep by playing an active part in three consecutive weekend matches against Samsung, his “parent team,” held at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju.
On the 21st, Choi Hyung-woo, who led the team to victory with a dramatic ending 3-run home run in the 9th inning, trailing 2-4, achieved a new record for the most doubles in his personal career in the KBO League on the 23rd. Choi Hyeong-woo, who started as the designated hitter number 4, hit Samsung starter Baek Jeong-hyeon’s 7th fastball in the first inning with 2 outs and 2nd base, splitting the right-middle. Choi Hyung-woo’s 465th double in his personal career is a new record, surpassing the previous record (464) held by Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop, the ‘national hitter’.
Choi Hyeong-woo took the lead in the 7th inning, which Samsung had been chasing closely 4-3, and hit Seung-hwan Oh’s first fastball, the first fastball with which he had built the ‘Samsung Dynasty’ together in the past.

KIA, which had been at the bottom with 4 wins and 10 losses before the 3 match against Samsung, had 3 wins in a row and 7 wins and 10 losses, laying the foundation for a leap to the middle ranks. On the other hand, Samsung fell to 9th place with 4 consecutive losses.
