Choi Seung-min, who joined NC Dinos as a foster player in 2015, moved his nest through a one-on-one trade with LG on the 18th. At the time of the trade, LG said of Choi Seung-min, “It is evaluated that his ability to perform operations as a large runner with a quick focus” and “I expect it to be of great help to the team in the second half of the game.”
Choi Seung-min was also active as a runner-up agent in NC. In the first team, he appeared in 116 career games, with a batting average of .297, 5 RBIs, 32 points and 16 stolen bases. He recorded a batting average of 0.239 and 7 stolen bases in 24 games in the Futures League this season.
His strong point is his fast feet, running 100m in 11 seconds. In 2016, he stole 35 bases in the Futures League, and in 2020, he also led the Futures Southern League in steals with 26 bases.
In LG, as Shin Min-jae, who was an existing runner-up agent, became the main second baseman, the runner’s seat became vacant. Coach Yeom ran the radar regardless of the 1st and 2nd teams, and he singled out Choi Seung-min and directly requested a trade from the front desk.
Manager Yeom said, “From tomorrow, Choi Seung-min will play in the 2nd team. In the offense, when the runner is out, he will be substituted and play the role of a runner, and in defense, he will play all outfield positions.
Choi Seung-min, who came up to Seoul on the 19th, participated in the team training held at Jamsil Stadium on the 20th and worked together for the first time. Everything is still unfamiliar, but the motivation is clear.
Choi Seung-min, whom I met after training, said, “I was surprised when I first heard the news of the trade, but on the other hand, I felt good because the team I transferred to was LG.”
Choi Seung-min is also well aware of his role at LG. He doesn’t have a big problem adjusting because it’s similar to when he was in NC. Since he is also his hometown in Seoul, an environment where he can play baseball with a more comfortable mind has been created.
He emphasized, “The coach also told me to focus on the big runners or big defense. Rather than being greedy for the starting lineup, it is more important to be helpful to the team while being faithful to my role according to the situation at the time.”
In the NC days, the outfield was solid and there were few opportunities to play, but in LG, the stage was prepared to show off one’s skills to the fullest. Like Shin Min-jae, who rose from a runner-up agent to a starting infielder, Choi Seung-min is eager to seize the opportunity that came to him.
He said, “When I saw it in NC, LG was a strong team with solid power. I am happy and proud to be a member of LG,” he said. “I am also grateful that the coach took pictures of me. I will do my best to help the team.”
