Top vote-getter to unexpected shoulder injury…but still came to Incheon

After receiving the most fan votes for the All-Star Game, Kia closer Jeong Jung-young, who was unable to participate in the All-Star Game due to a shoulder injury, traveled to Incheon SSG Landers Field with the intention of thanking the fans who voted for him, even if he couldn’t pitch.

Jung visited the stadium before the ‘2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO All-Star Game’ at Incheon SSG Landers Field on June 6. Jung was unable to participate in the All-Star Game after being removed from the first team due to rotator cuff inflammation in his right shoulder on March 24, but he traveled to Incheon to greet the fans. Jung received 1,396,077 votes in the All-Star fan vote, the most among the 10 clubs. He also received 144 votes in the player vote, the most of any NANU All-Star closer nominee.

“The fans voted for me, so I thought I should at least show my face on the field,” said Jung, who met with the media in the dugout before the game. “Even if I can’t step on the field, I think I should be in the dugout. “Honestly, I was worried about my shoulder injury. I thought that the fans would be happy if I could attend the game without throwing a ball and without overdoing it,” he said.

There is no timetable for her return, but she is rehabbing hard to get back on the mound as soon as possible. “I don’t know when I’ll be back,” Jung said. “I have to keep an eye on my body,” Jung 먹튀검증가이드 said, “I think the first series of the second half will be difficult, and I’m trying to come back as soon as possible. The team has been very supportive, so I’m working hard on my rehabilitation.”

In fact, he had planned a ‘taiyaki’ performance if he had made it to the game. She had planned to wear a jersey with her father’s name on it and throw the ball, but an injury prevented her from doing so. “They said I looked a lot like my dad (former coach Jung Hoe-yeol), so I made my dad’s jersey and tried to throw in it, but I got injured unexpectedly. I told him, “If you pick me again next year, I’ll do it then.

After cheering on her teammates from the dugout, Jung also got a chance to meet the fans before the game. After all of the Nanum All-Stars were called up, the emcee called out the fan favorite.
