MLB San Francisco morning star Lee Jeong-hoo “Challenge for the first splash home run”

When asked what his goal was for next year, Jeong-hoo Lee (25, San Francisco Giants), who will debut as a big leaguer in 2024, said, “I will think about it soon,” but did not hesitate when the record of being the first Korean in the club came out. I thought of ‘splash home run’.Lee Jeong-hoo, who returned to Incheon International Airport on the 19th after signing a ‘record’ contract worth $113 million over six years with MLB’s San Francisco, said in an interview, “I am a left-handed hitter, so I am the first Korean player in San Francisco to hit a splash home run. “I want to try it,” he said with a smile.

San Francisco’s home stadium, Oracle Park, which is considered one of the most beautiful among the 30 major league stadiums in the U.S., calls home runs that hit the McCovey Bay behind the right fence a “splash hit” and counts them officially.This means that the home run splashes into the water and falls into the water, so there is always a boat rower waiting to retrieve the home run ball in Macobee Bay.This is a scene that symbolizes San Francisco.If a player from the San Francisco team hits it, it is a splash hit, and if it is hit by a player from an away team, it is 무료슬롯게임 classified separately on the team’s website as just a “home run off McCovey.”
