The professional baseball Samsung Lions are considered a team that must have a large number of long hitters.

This is because Daegu Samsung Lions Park, the home stadium, is considered a representative ‘batter-friendly stadium’ in the KBO League.

At Daegu Samsung Lions Park, which has an octagonal structure, the distance from the home plate to the left and right center fences, where most home runs are made, is only 107 meters, making it easy to hit home runs.

According to Statistics, a baseball statistics site, Daegu Samsung Lions Park’s park factor is 1,054, making it the most advantageous stadium for hitters among the home stadiums used by 10 teams.

However, Samsung has not been able to properly take advantage of its home stadium.

The team’s heavy hitters, including Oh Jae-il, have not played their part in recent years, and no new players have emerged that stand out.

Last year, not a single player was listed in the league’s top 10 home runs.

This year the story is different.

New 4th hitter Young-woong Kim became the first Samsung player to hit 10 home runs this season in a visiting game against SSG Landers held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 17th, and Ja-wook Koo also hit 8 home runs.

Here, Lee Seong-gyu, who was considered a ‘permanent slugger prospect’, is contributing his strength.

Seong-gyu Lee, who joined Samsung in 2016, has only 13 home runs in his personal career.

However, he has already hit 6 home runs in 40 games this season.

Considering that Lee Seong-gyu mainly appeared as a substitute, this is a considerable number.

In the match against SSG on the 16th, he hit the final home run that led the team to victory.

On this day, he came on as a pinch hitter for Jae-il Oh in the bottom of the 6th inning when the team was down 2-3, and in the top of the 8th inning when the game was down 3-3, with 2 outs and 2nd base, he hit a home run against SSG’s third pitcher Byeong-hyun Cho, the game-winning home run.

With the ball count of 2, he hit a high fastball of 147 km/h and went over the left wall.

Samsung used this home run as a stepping stone to hit SSG in the 8th and 9th innings, defeating SSG 12-4.

Lee Seong-gyu, who played with 1 hit in 3 at-bats, 2 RBIs, and 2 runs, met with reporters after the game and said, “I feel a sense of responsibility as our team needs a lot of long hitters.” “I gained confidence after releasing it,” he said. 한국야동
