Park Gun-woo went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBIs, and a run scored as the starting third baseman and right fielder in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against KT Wiz at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do, at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 11.

After getting off to a good start in his first at-bat, Park followed it up with a hit in his second at-bat of the inning. With two on and two out, Park pulled a fastball from Benjamin and smashed it into the bottom of the left field fence. It was a two-run double.
Park’s hot hitting continued. In the top of the fourth inning, he hit another RBI single with two outs to complete his three-hit game.
In his first four games of August, Park was batting .625 (10-for-16). However, in his last four games, he has fallen into a temporary slump, batting just 0.111 (1-for-9).
However, Park’s slump didn’t last long. He quickly found his groove and proved his worth, posting the highest career batting average (0.325) among right-handed hitters with more than 3,000 at-bats before this game.
Park Gun-woo was once caught up in the “walk-eating” controversy in July. At the time, Kang Shin-ho said, “As a senior player, there are not only skills but also virtues that you should have,” adding, “As a manager, I hoped that he would not act outside of the original team, and I was disappointed in him for that.”
Park returned to the first team for the second half of the season. With the exception of the SSG Landers game on the 8th, Park Gun-woo started every game in the second half of the season, showing his dedication to the team. On that day, Park made his presence felt with a blistering batting performance.
After a brief hiatus, Park’s hitting has started to pick up again. It was a majestic day for the right-hander, who is now the No. 1 batting average among right-handers.
