Choi Sang-min (24, SSG Landers), who only had 2 hits in the first team, filled the gap left by Choi Ji-hoon (26) with 2 hits in one game.

In the 2nd inning with a narrow lead of 2-1, he took the lead and scored a right-handed hit, then scored a runaway score on Cho Hyeong-woo’s double, and also emerged as the leader in the 4th inning when he led 3-1, followed by a left-handed hit and Choi Joo-hwan’s 1 He hit home on an RBI double.

Choi Sang-min, whom we met after the game, said, “I wanted (Choi) Ji-hoon not to feel the vacancy of his brother. I worked comfortably with the idea of easing the burden and helping the team, but it was beneficial,” he said. He thought about it, but it worked. He left his impressions of victory, saying, “Thank you to my brother. ㅋㅋㅋ벳
Choi Sang-min, who graduated from Bukil High School, joined the pro in 2018 as a training player for SK (now SSG). His road to first team was arduous. After joining, he did not stand out much and enlisted as an active-duty artilleryman to fulfill his military service duty. Finally, on April 29 last year, he stepped on the stage of the first team he dreamed of in the match against Doosan, but his debut season with shabby results of batting average 7 pennies 1 league 1 RBI in 27 games has finished
