Hanwha’s flagship hitter, Chae Eun-seong (33), was on the scene at the moment when the bat flip, commonly referred to as ‘patta throw’, was also thrilled. It was the first time in 41 years that he made a grand slam in the All-Star game, added Mr. All-Star, and even won the home run race.
In the 2023 KBO League All-Star Game held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 15th, Chae Eun-seong started as the 3rd hitter and 1st baseman of the Nanum All-Star and led an 8-4 victory with 2 hits in 3 at-bats, 2 points and 5 RBIs, including a home run. Chae Eun-seong, who played 5 RBIs, also set a tie record for the most RBIs in the All-Star Game.온라인카지노
The best moment was by far the ‘home run with bases loaded’ at the bottom of the 4th inning when he went to bat with 2 outs and bases loaded and crossed Sajik’s left fence. During the All-Star Game in 1982, when professional baseball was launched, Kim Yong-hee (Lotte, Donggun) was the second player to hit a grand total in 41 years at Dongdaemun Baseball Stadium.
Kim Yong-hee, the head of the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) game, also felt thrilled. Chairman Kim attended the All-Star game to throw the first pitch as a ‘historic Lotte Mr. All-Star’ and saw the site of history. In a phone call with Sports Seoul, he said, “It was so exciting. Since the bases were full, I wanted to hit one, but it just came out. That’s why I feel so good.” He chuckled.

With this grand slam shot, Chae Eun-seong won the ‘Mr. All-Star’ award. Moreover, it is overlapping. Chae Eun-seong won the home run race held the day before and also won Mr. All-Star, becoming the first player to win both.
Chae Eun-seong, whom we met after the game, said, “It was the same yesterday (the day of winning the home run race), but I am confused. It even makes me wonder if I can stay here,” he said. It is difficult to come to the All-Star Game, which is held once a year, but I think becoming Mr. All-Star is more meaningful.”
He showed a shy smile with an expression that did not feel real, saying that the energy of winning the home run race the previous day continued. In fact, he wasn’t even aiming for a home run.
Chae Eun-seong said, “I didn’t know how many home runs in the All-Star Game. He was loaded, but he wasn’t greedy. He didn’t actually try and hit him. I thought, ‘I have to hit a fastball,’ but it seems to have hit well and passed.” It helped that he tried to bring the hitting point to the front. Also, (Yu) Gangnam’s batting ball was so good that it helped a lot in adjusting the hitting point.”

The All-Star Game is held once a year. The stage of the stars, which can be enjoyed together by being chosen by the fans, is glorious and thrilling for the players. He also tried to have fun with his fans. That is why, after the end of the 5th episode, they followed the performance of the honor guard of the Jinhae Garrison Command of the Republic of Korea Navy in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the 6.25 Armistice. In fact, Chae Eun-seong is from the Army Honor Guard.
He said, “Above all, I came with the idea that I was going to play with the fans with the meaning of participating in the All-Star Game.” He remembered the old days while watching the soldiers do it. He never imagined that there would be a day like today, but he had many thoughts,” he confessed. “I had mixed feelings. I became grateful for the present and had mixed feelings.”
Chae Eun-seong won a total of 15 million won in prize money, including 5 million won in home run race and 10 million won in Mr. All-Star the previous day. He said, “I never thought I would receive (15 million won). The 5 million won received yesterday was agreed to be divided 6 to 4 with Gangnam. Yesterday, while we were eating dinner, Gangnam said that 5 to 5 was too much for his conscience,” he said. Just in time, Gangnam’s birthday was on July 15th, so he said that. I don’t know if I will win the prize money today, so I don’t have a plan yet.”
Finally, Chae Eun-seong said, “Our Hanwha players are improving a lot, and they have overcome many tight games. I think I can bring good energy and start the second half in a good mood.”
