Was it an inseparable fate?
Park Kun-woo (33), the representative outfielder of the pro baseball NC, succeeded in hitting his 100th home run in the KBO League. In the home game against Samsung held at Changwon NC Park on the 19th, he participated as the designated hitter 3 times and built a monumental achievement with a two-run shot made at the end of the 7th inning when the team fell 1-5.
He met Samsung bullpen Lee Seung-hyun at 1st out and 2nd base and continued the game with a persistent cut in 1B2S. Then, he boasted the power to push the fastball on the 6th pitch and pass it over the right wall. It was also highly nutritious as it was a home run that chased the opponent with a score of 3-5.
It was regrettable that the team chase stopped at 4-5 and lost, but it is meaningful in that it pierced the number 9, which was personally boring. On the 12th of last month, he reported the 99th total of Changwon KT as a horseman in the previous season, and then suffered a long home run drought over 37 days in a total of 25 games. It may not be that the record did not result in a home run, but the pressure given by the number ‘100’ could not be completely ignored.
The long wait is finally over. Along with the home run that thrilled home fans, he was named the 104th ‘100 home run hitter’ in the KBO League. It is Park Geon-woo who has shaken off the thirst and burden of recording at once.

He said, “I have an unforgettable memory of hitting my first home run in my professional debut 10 years ago at Masan Baseball Stadium. It is more meaningful to hit the 100th home run in Changwon,” he said, introducing a special relationship with Anbang. It was the 2013 season that marked the start of the 2013 season after he completed his military service in the police baseball team after being nominated by Doosan in the 10th place in the 2nd round of the 2nd round in 2009. On April 27 of that year, he visited the Masan Baseball Stadium as a member of Doosan and made an impressive debut with a solo home run against Lee Seong-min in the 8th inning스포츠토토.
Masan Baseball Stadium is the former home ground of NC. After passing its role to Changwon NC Park, which was built right next to it, it is now used as the home stadium of the NC Futures team. Park Kun-woo inherited the good energy he received there 10 years ago over a long period of time. The large FA (free agent) contract signed with NC ahead of last season became a fateful meeting for him.
He said, “I hit a special home run while many home fans came to visit me. He enjoyed the moment by taking a picture (Peddy leaving a home run moment for his teammates) with a more joyful heart than usual,” he said. “I did my best, but it’s a pity that the team lost. In the next game, I will work hard with my colleagues to show a better performance and record,” he said, raising his voice.
