“I’m so proud of you. I’ll buy you something delicious”. Koo Ja-wook got the title. “Congratulations”

Samsung’s “signature star” Koo Ja-rook (30) congratulated NC’s Son Ah-seop (35) on his batting title. He said he wasn’t disappointed. He also revealed his feelings about winning the Golden Glove.

Before the 2023 KBO Golden Glove Awards ceremony held at the COEX Auditorium in Gangnam-gu, Seoul on November 11, Koo said, “I have a big desire to receive it. But I feel good just being there,” he said.

He continued, “I think other outfielders were a little sluggish this season, and I think I stepped in. If you get it, it’s good, and if you don’t get it, it’s bad. I just need to prepare again next season,” he emphasized.

In 2023, Koo hit .336 with 11 home runs, 71 RBIs, a .407 on-base percentage, a .494 slugging percentage, and a .901 OPS in 119 games.랭크카지노

It was the first time in seven years that he hit in the quadrant since 2016. He hit triple digit home runs for the first time in two years. Ranked second in Wins Above Replacement (WAR) among outfielders in the league.

His batting average was second in the league. Although he lost the title to Son Ah-seop (.339), it was a season that created another title for Koo: resurgence. He’s a strong candidate to win the Golden Glove for Outfielder. If he does, it will be the first time in two years since 2021.

“First of all, the Golden Glove is a cool looking award. It’s something I’ve dreamed of since I was a kid. I want it more than an individual title. I got one, but I felt a little empty. If I got it today, I would feel much better than I did two years ago.”

We also talked about the batting title. “I think (Son) was more eager for it. He played more games and had a higher batting average than me. I don’t feel bad at all,” he explained.

He continued, “He’s someone I look up to. He always gives me a lot of good advice. I heard that he finished second a few times. He’s also older than me. I might not have a chance, but I feel proud to be his brother. I’m sure he’ll buy me a lot of delicious things,” he laughs.
