Ahn Joon-chul, 기자 "Super Rookie" Kang Baek-ho (19·Ktwiz) is poised to break the record of the most home runs ever for a rookie. 

Kang hit a solo homerun in the early eighth inning against Lotte Giants of the 2018 KBO league and Kim Gun-guk in the first round of the double header at Sajik Stadium in Busan on Sunday. It was Kang's 29th homer of the season.

With the homerun, Kang is approaching the KBO league record by one run. Park Jae-hong (current MBC Sports Plus commentator) of the Hyundai Unicorns set the most home runs in 1996. Kang Baek-ho approached the record by one run.
After graduating from Seoul High School this year and joining KT in the first round of the second round, Kang Baek-ho has been considered a highly talented player to hit since his high school days. When he was a first grader in high school, he hit his first homerun in the Cheongnyong High School Baseball Championship. In the third year of high school, he became the talk of the town through both batting and playing.

In the pro league, he is breaking various records related to home runs. He hit his 22nd homerun on April 15 and rewrote the record of most home runs for new high school graduates held by Kim Jae-hyun (194, 21). He drew his 28th arches in the match against Hanwha in Suwon on Friday, surpassing 27 by Kia manager Kim Ki-tae, who had the most home run for the rookie of the season.

KT has two more games to play. He will play away against the Nexen Heroes in Suwon on Wednesday and the Doosan Bears in Jamsil on Saturday. If you hit at least one tie in two games, you will make a new record. 

Kang's home run was home and home run. At the Suwon Catewiz Park, he hits 15 players and 14 away games. In particular, he hit three at Jamsil Stadium where the final match against Doosan will take place. However, he failed to make an arch in Daejeon alone and hit homeruns in eight stadiums.

"Gang Baek-ho has the skills to target 토토사이트 both physical conditions and fastballs," SBS sports commentator Lee Jong-yeol said. "He is a new player who does not like his confidence to swing after a two-strike." "He is the best high school graduate ever." "As he has the ability to hit a home run, I expect to achieve new records." It remains to be seen whether Kang will be able to make history of the KBO in the remaining two games.
