LG Heo Do-hwan, solo shot running away from SSG McCarty, ‘Bam!’… Season No. 2 

LG Twins backup catcher Heo Do-hwan fired his second shot of the season at a critical moment.

Heo Do-hwan started as the ninth hitter and catcher in the second game of the double header against the SSG Landers of the 2023 Professional Baseball KBO League held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 17th.

This is to distribute the catcher’s physical strength due to the double header. In the first game of the doubleheader held earlier (LG won 8-3), starting pitcher Park Dong-won played the full game wearing a catcher’s mask.

LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop, who met before the first game of the먹튀검증 doubleheader, said, “Only the catcher (among the players who played in the first game) will be given a rest. (Heo) Do-hwan announced his participation, saying, “He will play in the second game.”

Heo Do-hwan’s bat, which was hit by a foul fly by third baseman in the bottom of the second inning, came back violently in the bottom of the fourth when LG was slightly ahead 3-2. With one out and no runner on base, he hit a 146km fastball outside the third pitch of opposing starting pitcher left-hander Kirk McCarty and drew a solo arch that went over the left wall.

This was Heo Do-hwan’s second shot of the season. The launch angle was 24.9 degrees, the exit speed was 170.9 km, and the distance was measured at 114.3 m.

Meanwhile, LG widened the score gap with Heo Do-hwan’s home run, Kim Hyun-soo’s sacrifice fly to center field, Austin’s 1 RBI and timely triple in right-center field, and the opponent’s error. With the bottom of the fourth inning still in progress, LG is ahead 7-2.
