NC Dinos Park Geon-woo, winner of the outfielder category, is expressing his thoughts at the 2023 Korean Professional Baseball KBO Golden Glove Awards ceremony held at COEX Auditorium in Gangnam-gu, Seoul on the afternoon of the 11th.

Professional baseball NC Dinos outfielder Park Geon-woo (33) had the best year in 2017 while playing for the Doosan Bears.

At that time, he played in 131 games and posted a batting average of 0.366, 20 home runs, and 78 RBIs.From anyone’s perspective, it seemed likely that he would win the Golden Glove, which is given to the best player in each position.

He also attended the Golden Glove Awards ceremony held on December 13 of that year with great enthusiasm.

However, Park Geon-woo was not called.

Son Ah-seop (current NC), who took first place with the most hits, and Choi Hyeong-woo and Roger Bernardina of the KIA Tigers, who led the combined championship, won the outfielder category trophy.

Park Geon-woo met with reporters after the professional baseball 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League Golden Glove Awards Ceremony held at COEX Auditorium in Samseong-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul on the 11th and said, “It is vivid” when asked, “Do you remember the 2017 awards ceremony?”

He said, “It was a very sad memory,” and “I felt a little hurt.”

Park Geon-woo turned away heavily.At that time, a fan cautiously approached Park Geon-woo.

Park Geon-woo said, “At that time, as I was going home, a fan gave me a golden cake in the shape of a Golden Glove. It was a great help and an opportunity to not be frustrated.”

Park Geon-woo did not collapse.Afterwards, he toured the KBO League as the best outfielder.And this season, he recorded a batting average of 0.319, 85 RBI, and 12 home runs, earning him the honor of winning his first Golden Glove Award.

It was the first Golden Gloves he received after his professional debut in 2009.

He received 139 out of 291 valid votes and ranked third in the outfield category, following Hong Chang-ki (LG Twins, 258 votes) and Koo Ja-wook (Samsung Lions, 185 votes).

He showed a slight difference with 38 votes from 4th place SSG Guillermo Heredia (101 votes).

Park Geon-woo, who went into the interview holding the golden gloves tightly with both hands, said, “I was worried that I would get hurt again this time,” and added, “I think today will be a meaningful day in my life.”

He also offered words of consolation to KIA shortstop Park Chan-ho, who unfortunately missed out on the award in 2017.

Park Geon-woo said, “Park Chan-ho is still young, so he has many opportunities left to win awards. I hope that today’s award ceremony will stimulate him. I will support him so that he does not give up and grows into an even better player.”

On this day, Park Chan-ho received 120 votes in the shortstop category, slightly losing to Oh Ji-hwan (LG, 154 votes). 카지노사이트존
