Son Ho-young, Yang Seok-hwan, and Jang Sung-woo are first-time All-Stars…

Son Ho-young, who has become a key infielder for the Lotte Giants after being traded, will play in the ‘Festival of Stars’ All-Star Game.

The KBO announced on Thursday the 26 manager’s picks to play in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO All-Star Game.

The Dream All-Stars, led by KT manager Lee Kang-cheol, include William Cuevas, Kim Min-woo, Jang Sung-woo and Mel Rojas Jr. (all of KT), Moon Seung-won (SSG Landers), Lee Young-ha and Yang Suk-hwan (Doosan), Park Se-woong, Kim Won-joong, Jung Hwa-geun and Son Ho-young (Lotte), Lee Seung-hyun (No. 57) and Kim Ji-chan (Samsung Lions).

LG Twins manager Yoon Kyung-yup, who leads the Sharing All-Stars, selected Yoo Young-chan, Austin Dean, Kim Hyun-soo, and Hong Chang-ki (LG), Kim Jae-yeol, Kim Young-kyu, and Kim Hyung-joon (NC Dinos), Choi Ji-min (KIA Tigers), Joo Hyun-sang, Choi Jae-hoon, and Noh Si-hwan (Hanwha Eagles), and Cho Sang-woo and Ha Young-min (Kiwoom Heroes).

Son, who was traded to Lotte from LG on March 30 this year, is making his first career All-Star Game as a manager’s pick after batting .324 with eight home runs, 37 RBIs and a 0.913 OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage) this year.

KT catcher Jang Sung-woo is in his 17th year as a professional, and Doosan first baseman Yang Seok-hwan is in his 11th year as a professional, making his first All-Star team.

Kim Jae-yeol joined Lotte in 2014 but failed to make it to the first team before making his first-team debut with KIA in 2020 and moving to NC in the second round of the November 2023 draft, where he made the leap to the must-win group and was named an All-Star.

LG outfielder Kim Hyun-soo was named an All-Star for the 15th time in his career, tying Yang Jun-hyuk for the record for most All-Star selections.

This year’s KBO All-Star Game will be held on July 6 at SSG Landers Field in Incheon.

On July 5, the Futures All-Star Game and the All-Star Home Run Derby will be held at the same venue. 바카라사이트 순위
