Hwang Jae-kyun started as the third baseman in the second game of the 3-game series against Lotte in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at kt Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do on the 21st, and hit a triple at the end of the 6th inning with a 3-1 lead, achieving 3000 bases. . He went 4 at bats with 2 hits, 1 RBI and 1 run, leading the team to an 8-2 victory.

Reaching 3000 base hits 18 years after his 2006 professional debut. This is the 21st record in KBO League history.

Hwang Jae-kyun, who met with reporters before the last game of the three-game series against Lotte held at the same place on the 22nd, expressed his feelings of achieving 3,000 base hits. “I wasn’t thinking about 3,000 base hits at all,” he said. “I thought he had been playing baseball for a long time.”

Hwang Jae-gyun, who came to bat with the first base unscathed, countered the opponent’s second pitcher Jin Seung-hyeon’s 6th pitch forkball with a speed of 129 km/h. It was a big hit that flew close to the fence, but it was difficult to predict that Hwang Jae-gyun, who had recently suffered a toe injury, would run to third base. However, Hwang Jae-kyun slid into third base and completed 3,000 base hits.

Hwang Jae-kyun explained the situation at the time, “The ball didn’t hit the fence and ran out, so I kept running while watching it.” Then he laughed, “There is no problem with running, but I used to stand up and go in, but now I have to slide. It seems to have slowed down a lot.”

After the game, he took a 3,000th base ball, but there was no special inspiration. Hwang Jae-kyun tilted his head, saying, “I don’t really care about the commemorative ball. I don’t know where the commemorative ball I’ve been receiving is.” However, he said, “I think I’ll take good care of it if it’s the best record in the league.”

Hwang Jae-gyun, who is recording 1,944 hits in his career, is now looking to exceed 2,000 hits in his personal career. However, he said calmly, “I think he has been doing it consistently, but he doesn’t care too much about records.”

At the beginning of the season, Hwang Jae-kyun suffered a severe hit, and at the beginning of last month, he was out of power due to a toe fracture. In the meantime, kt faced a period of stagnation, such as falling to the bottom. In response, he confessed, “It was the first time I had been out of it for this long.”

However, after returning from injury, Hwang Jae-kyun, who was extremely careful, swung a hard hit. Hwang Jae-kyun, who returned from the match against Doosan on the 3rd, spewed fire with a batting average of 3.6 0.5 li (23 hits in 63 at-bats) in 16 games in June. His batting average for the season is 2.9 0.9 Lee (32 hits in 107 at-bats), and he is already crossing the .30 mark.

The team also succeeded in rebounding with 12 wins and 5 losses in 17 games in June. With a record of 28 wins, 2 draws and 34 losses, a win rate of 4.5%, it rose from the bottom to the 8th place. In response, Hwang Jae-gyun smiled, saying, “I would have thought, ‘Is it because of me’ if the team was sluggish even after returning, but all the players did well,” and said, “I think I can be in a high place at the end of the season.”

On this day, kt will challenge Lotte for a three-game sweep. Hwang Jae-gyun started as the third baseman with the fifth hitter.
