Can SSG Landers Guillermo Heredia become the first batting champion in club history?
Heredia recorded 1 hit and 2 RBIs in 5 at-bats in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League Kiwoom Heroes game held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 2nd. He hit the final blow to give SSG a 9-5 victory. He played a nutritious performance, but Heredia’s batting average, which only posted one hit, fell slightly to 0.332.
Heredia, who stepped on Korean soil for the first time this season, is synonymous with persistence. Recorded a batting average of 0.332 (93 hits and 9 homers in 280 at-bats) in 72 games as of the 2nd. He was ranked first in the division. LG Twins Hong Chang-ki (batting average 0.325) ranked second, and Kiwoom Heroes Kim Hye-seong (batting average 0.325) ranked third.
If Heredia maintains the pace, SSG will have the club’s first batting title. Even if you expand the range to his predecessor, SK Wyverns, there is still no batting king in a team based in Incheon. Coach Lee Jin-young finished second overall with a batting average of 0.342 in 2004, and Jose Herrera ranked second with a batting average of 0.340 in 2001.메이저놀이터
Heredia also did not hide her greed for the hitting title, saying, “If you are a baseball player, you are greedy for the title of hitting king.” However, the 2023 season has not yet turned around, so I am trying to do my best in every game. Heredia promised, “It’s less than half the season now. It’s a little too early to think of the batting champion. I’ll try to make the team win every game and bring runners home as much as possible.”
As the heat wave begins in earnest, physical fitness problems may come to the fore. A decrease in physical strength adversely affects performance. In order for Heredia to be as active as she is now, managing her stamina is essential. Heredia said, “I’m from Cuba, so I’m used to the heat. But if my body isn’t ready, it can be difficult. I’m taking good care of the drinks provided by the training part and exercising hard to reinforce my stamina.” said it would
Heredia is like a fortune in SSG. Heredia, a former Cuban national team member, decided to go to Korea last winter with a total of 1 million dollars. He also has a lot of big league experience. He played seven seasons for the Seattle Mariners, Tampa Bay Rays, Pittsburgh Pirates, New York Mets, and Atlanta Braves. He recorded a batting average of 0.231, 27 home runs and 114 RBIs in 591 career games in the major leagues alone.
The command tower looking at Heredia, who made a big success without going through an adaptation period, was also pleased. Manager Kim Won-hyung said, “Heredia’s ability to make contact is her strength. I didn’t recruit her with the expectation of a long hit from the beginning. I brought her here thinking that she is a player who can get on base a lot. In terms of performance alone, I am completely satisfied with Heredia’s performance.” has revealed
He’s not the only one with a high batting average. It is equipped with Gongsuju triplex. Heredia was ranked second in RBI (52), second in hits (93), and fifth in slugging percentage (0.486). In various attack indicators, Heredia is at the top. He also shows a sense of stability in defense and guards the SSG outfield.
