On the day that the 2024 professional baseball game, which is enjoying a box-office sensation, sold out 100 games, a grand competition for record-breaking games also took place.

KIA Tigers’ veteran slugger Choi Hyeong-woo (40) swung a hard hit with 4 hits and 6 RBIs in 5 at-bats, including a home run, in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League visiting game against KT Wiz in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 14th.

Choi Hyung-woo, who ranked first in history with 1,598 RBIs until the previous day, achieved 1,604 RBIs in 2,139 games since joining the team in 2002, becoming the first player in professional baseball to surpass the 1,600 RBI mark.

KIA maintained the lead by defeating KT Wiz 11-1, led by Choi Hyeong-woo’s exciting bat.

KIA, who took the lead with Choi Hyung-woo’s two-run home run in the top of the first inning, scored six runs in the top of the second inning, including Choi Hyung-woo’s three RBI doubles, and took an 8-0 lead, taking the lead early.

Koo Ja-wook hit a 2-RBI double in the top of the 9th inning to tie the game.

NC Son Ah-seop swung a hard hit with 3 hits in 4 at-bats despite the team’s loss.

Son Ah-seop, who recorded 2,499 hits in his personal career, is on the verge of becoming the second player in history to reach 2,500 hits, following Park Yong-taek (2,504 hits).
