On the 19th, Choi Joo-hwan posted on his SNS, “To the fans who caught the 1000 hits, I ask you once again. To me, it is a precious 1,000-hit ball that I achieved with difficulty, blood, sweat, effort, passion, tears and perseverance that took 18 years. I heard that it was not returned on the day, but I believe that you will change your mind and return it.”

The photo posted by Joo-Hwan Choi shows the audience rejoicing after picking up the 1,000-hit ball that fell on the seats. Choi Joo-hwan even recorded the seat area and number in the photo where the audience was seated.

This post spread to online baseball communities and caused controversy. The majority of baseball fans criticized Choi Joo-hwan’s actions. It is because of the fact that he even revealed his face with content that seemed to criticize the spectator in question with the expression “the ball filled with sweat and tears was not returned on the same day.”

Afterwards, Choi Joo-hwan’s side contacted the fan and reached an amicable agreement.

The SSG club said, “There was an error in communication, so Joo-hwan Choi misunderstood.” “The fan who contacted the club decided to return the ball, and Joo-hwan Choi personally decided to deliver a small reward to the fan.” .

He also added, “Choi Joo-hwan conveyed his sincere apology to the person concerned for revealing a fan’s face on social media, saying, ‘I was short of thought’.”

Previously, Joo-hwan Choi hit a solo home run at the end of the second inning in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League Lotte game held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 16th. With this home run, Choi Ju-hwan achieved his 1000th personal hit (115th in his career).
