7th home run of the season against Kiwoom on the 10th Achieved record of playing in 1,000 games
Hanyu Island participates in 1,000 KBO games

On the day that Han Yu-seom (34, SSG Landers) played in 1,000 games for the 180th time in KBO League history, he took the lead in home runs.

Han Yu-seom started as designated hitter number 6 in the home game against Kiwoom Heroes, a professional baseball team held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 10th, and performed well with 1 hit, 2 walks, and 2 runs in 2 at-bats.

The highlight was episode 2.

In the bottom of the second inning, tied 0-0, with one out and one on first base, Hanyu Island hit a 147 km/h fastball from opposing starter Ariel Jurado and hit a two-run home run that went over the right wall.

Hanyu Island, who hit a home run in two consecutive games, pushed Yonatan Peraza (6 home runs, Hanwha Eagles) to become the sole leader in home runs. Mel Rojas Jr. (KT Wiz) is also tied for second place in this category with 6 home runs.

SSG won 8-4 that day, and Hanyu Island’s home run became the winning hit.

After the game, Han Yu-seom said, “I was surprised after hitting the home run. A good ball came in close to my body, but I don’t know how I hit it.”

Hanyu Island’s batting average is very low at 0.189 (10 hits in 55 at-bats).

However, he hit 8 extra-base hits (including 1 double) and also had 17 RBIs.

Before the game, SSG coach Lee Soong-yong said, “Hanyu Island’s batting average is low, but seeing that home runs are coming consistently, their batting balance is good,” and “The batting average will soon go up.”

Manager Lee said, “Han Yu-seom is tall, but his batting posture is low. As the Automatic Pitching Decision System (ABS) sets the strike zone based on the batter’s height, a ball that looks somewhat high in Han Yu-seom’s eyes is judged a strike. “I think Hanyu Island’s batting performance will improve if they just adapt to ABS. He hits a home run when it’s crucial, so I’m satisfied with his performance so far,” he added.

Hanyu Island responded to Coach Lee’s expectations with a two-run shot in the final.

On this day, Hanyu Island filled 500 Sasa-gu (the 89th time in history).

Han Yu-seom, who had an unforgettable day, said, “I am happy to have achieved 1,000 game appearances. I thought of the managers and coaches I met while playing in 1,000 games. My baseball career is not over yet, but 1,000 game appearances is a good motivation for me.” “I don’t know when my career will end, but I want to play in more games as a player who will help the team until the end.”

Director Lee Soong-yong also promised, “We will continue to give Hanyu Island opportunities.” 섯다
