SSG won 12-1 in the 5th game of the season against the Lotte Giants in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 16th. After ending a two-game losing streak, the gap with the first-place LG Twins was maintained by 0.5 games.
On this day, 18,000 spectators flocked to Landers Field to watch SSG and Lotte’s distribution rival Derby. While the atmosphere was somewhat stagnant due to recent consecutive losses, SSG laid the foundation for a rebound with a huge victory in front of Cloud fans.
The contents of the game were hot. Like the 2023 season league team’s top home run, he blew as many as five balls out of the fence. Starting with Joo-Hwan Choi’s solo home run at the bottom of the 2nd inning, Tae-Gon Oh’s 2-run home run in the bottom of the 4th inning, Jeong-Choi’s 3-run home run in the bottom of the 6th inning, Shin-Soo Choo’s 3-run home run in the bottom of the 7th, and Heredia’s solo home run in the bottom of the 7th, made the home fans go crazy.
The SSG cheering seats on the first base side erupted in louder cheers every time a home run was hit. This is because the player who hit the home run personally presented SSG’s 2022 season winning ring replica (imitation) one by one.
SSG is in the process of the ‘Shinsegae Universe Series’ during this weekend’s three-game series against Lotte. In commemoration of SSG’s first ‘Wire-to-Wire’ integrated championship in KBO history during the period, fake championship rings will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis, and 10 rings per game will be given to 10 spectators through a lottery.
SSG Front added one more idea here. Instead of having a player who hit a home run throw a doll into the crowd, as in the previous home game, a replica of the championship ring was delivered to each fan as a gift of memories.
Five home runs poured in from the first day of the weekend’s three-game series, and the five fans who cheered for SSG’s victory in the exciting zone on the first base side received a gift they would never forget and went home happily.
Players also praised the purpose of the club’s event. Choo Shin-soo said, “I am keeping last year’s championship ring in the clubhouse locker. It is my pleasure to watch the championship ring before the game every day.” It was great to have the opportunity,” he said.
