On the 19th, at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, there were exceptionally many uniforms with Chae Eun-seong engraved with number 55 in the first base crowd. It was the day Chae Eun-seong, who moved the team to free agency after the end of last season, played against LG in Jamsil for the first time in the season.
Chae Eun-seong was a player loved by LG fans. 안전놀이터He joined the team in 2009 as a foster player and stepped on the first team stage in 2014, and in 2018, he wrote a new history for the team with 119 RBIs, the most RBIs in a season at LG Women’s University. There were individual twists and turns and team twists and turns in one year. Chae Eun-seong was a good player both on and off the field, and when Chae Eun-seong decided to leave LG, most fans regretted his decision, but accepted and supported his decision.
When the game started and third batter Chae Eun-seong was introduced at the beginning of the first inning, the cheers at Jamsil Stadium grew. Chae Eun-seong was the most anticipated hitter on the day, both on first and third base. For LG fans, ‘we were good players’, and for Hanwha fans, ‘we were good players’, so each had a reason to be happy. Chae Eun-seong, who entered the plate, took off his helmet and bowed his head toward the LG fans at first base. He also made a greeting gesture to Casey Kelly on the mound, now his enemy.
Chae Eun-seong, who entered the first at-bat in a situation where there was no runner in the second company, watched a ball after two fouls. And on the 4th ball, Chae Eun-seong hit Kelly’s 131km/h curve, and this ball went over the left wall of Jamsil. It was Chae Eun-sung’s 7th home run of the season and his first career home run against LG. As if to say hello again, Chae Eun-seong stepped on the base and took a lap around Jamsil Stadium.
Perhaps, with this home run, LG fans may have completely said goodbye to Chae Eun-sung. Chae Eun-seong, who has conceded points, may have thought, ‘He is also good at Hanwha’ while being savage. Chae Eun-seong later struck out twice against Kelly, but achieved a multi-hit by adding a hit against Jung Woo-young. As he said, ‘Thanks to you, I’m doing well here too’, the name Chae Eun-seong has been re-engraved with the appearance of a good hitter.
