Kiwoom players waited for the team meeting while lightly warming up on the ground before the match between SSG-Kium of the “2022 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League” at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the afternoon of the 2nd.
For Puig, who recently changed to an unconventional hairstyle, the players gave nicknames such as “egg sushi” and “wasabi style.” 토토
The players who warmed up lightly gathered in front of the dugout. Starter Han Hyun-hee approached Puig and touched Puig’s carefully dyed hair. At that moment, Puig looked lightly at Han Hyun-hee, but Han Hyun-hee flinched at the look.
Looking at Han Hyun-hee, who flinched, Puig stretched out his hand to his head and said “strong,” saying something stronger and playing around.
Later, Puig looked at Han Hyun-hee with lovely eyes and played a joke. Puig was born in 1990 and Han Hyun-hee was born in 1993, three years apart, but he felt like his eldest brother and youngest brother.
In the match, Kiwoom suffered a 7-5 come-from-behind defeat after repeatedly reversing the reversal in the 1st and 2nd place showdown with SSG. SSG ranks first with 64 wins, 28 losses, and 3 draws, while Kiwoom ranks second with 57 wins, 35 losses and 2 draws.
Puig had two walks and one hit in three at-bats, but failed to prevent his team from losing 7-5.
