Seo Geon-chang, who voluntarily left the LG Twins after last season, pledges to restore his honor at KIA.

Seo Geon-chang, who graduated from Gwangju Jeil High School, joined LG as a training player in 2008 and played in the first team in earnest since 2012 when he was a member of Nexen Heroes (now Kiwoom), playing an active role as a substitute hitter representing the KBO League.

Until last year, he played in 1,256 games and recorded a career batting average of 0.297, 1,365 hits, 491 RBIs, and 229 stolen bases.

In particular, he surpassed his dream of hitting 200 hits in the 2014 season, hitting 201 hits, the most in a single season ever, and was named the best player that year, enjoying the best moment of his life.

Although there were ups and downs, Seo Geon-chang maintained a batting average of .300 until 2019.However, after moving to LG in 2021 through a trade, he was pushed out of the starting lineup and did not produce any notable results.

Even after becoming a free agent after the 2021 season, he did not exercise his rights for three years.That’s because he knew there was no team willing to take him and that he couldn’t sign on the terms he wanted.

KIA reached out to Seo Geon-chang, who had been secretly seeking him after confirming the list of pending players in November of last year.

The KIA club explained the background of the recruitment, saying, “We judged that the experienced Seo Geon-chang will be a great help in the growth of the team’s young and promising infielders,” and “We hope that he will lead the juniors well together with Kim Sun-bin and we hope that he will make a comeback in his hometown team.” . 카지노사이트
