Amid the enthusiastic support of the third base KIA away fans, Choi Won-joon took off his helmet and greeted him 90 degrees, announcing his return.

Choi Won-joon, who got off to a good start with a hit in his first at-bat after returning from the military, shared a high-five with coach Lee Hyun-gon after stepping on first base.
Although Socrates and Choi Hyeong-woo, the center liners, failed to score as they retired with a hit, Choi Won-joon’s confident swing in the first at-bat was impressive.
Choi Won-joon started as the first baseman and second batter that day. On June 28, 2019, 1,446 days after the first baseman’s business trip against Suwon KT Wiz, he played a first-team game wearing a first base mitt.

His instant judgment was good. He praised, saying, “I caught it well.”
Choi Won-joon, who said that his role in his team is to move quickly, showed enthusiasm for losing 10 kg before his campaign.
Right fielder Lee Woo-seong took care of Choi Won-joon’s first base mitt every time he was discharged from the military during his karate shift. In the first game of the first team after his discharge, he played a big role in multi-hits, but when he lost by 1 point, even his younger brother Lee Eui-ri patted the shoulder of his older brother Choi Won-joon, who regretted it. The Tigers warmly welcomed Choi Won-jun, who had been waiting so long.
