Doosan’s Yang Seok-hwan hit a two-run home run off Lee Sang-dong, who relieved Benjamin in the bottom of the sixth inning of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League game against KT at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on Friday.
Yang hit a six-pitch 144-kilometer fastball from Lee Sang-dong for a home run that cleared the 110-meter fence. The pitch was so high that KT outfielder Alford thought he could catch it, but it sailed just over the fence. A kid in the stands wore a glove with the words, “Please send Yang Seok-hwan this way.” The distance between the kid and Yang’s hit was less than 3 meters. All the spectators, including the kid, were stunned by the home run.
In a game between Doosan and Kiwoom at Gocheok Sky Dome in June last year, Kiwoom’s Lee Jung-hoo hit a home run in the bottom of the eighth inning. A fan in the stands wrote “Lee Jung-hoo, please fly the ball here” and the broadcast camera caught it, and Lee Jung-hoo immediately hit a home run, which became a hot topic for a while.
It would have been a big story again if Yang had hit the ball 3 meters into left field. Of course, Yang didn’t hit a home run while looking at that pitch, but it was a meaningful home run for the players and fans.메이저사이트
