“The affinity is amazing”… Expected to be the main player in winning the WS, the maker of the dugout atmosphere

 “The affinity is great.”

SSG Landers recruited Guillermo Heredia (32) as a foreign hitter this season. He had a batting average of 0.231 with 27 home runs and 114 RBIs over seven career major league seasons. In the 2021 season, he won the World Series with the Atlanta Braves. He was particularly notable for his energetic play.

Heredia joined the SSG squad in Vero Beach, Florida, where the 2023 spring camp was held. He boasts a unique affinity and quickly melts into the team. Word goes that he’s already got close to the players. Choi Ji-hoon said, “If it’s already this much, the affinity is amazing.”

Starting with getting closer to the players, SSG is more desperate to play an active part. Heredia is considered a similar type of hitter to Juan Lagares, who joined last season as a foreign hitter. Lagares recorded a batting average of 0.315 카지노사이트with 6 home runs and 32 RBIs in 49 games, but the offensive production was decisively low, so he could not continue with SSG.

Director Kim Won-hyeong evaluated Heredia as “a similar type to Lagares” and expressed anticipation, saying, “The defense is good and adaptable quickly. Seeing the free batting, the technical things are good.”

The command tower was also seen playing an active role as an atmosphere maker when playing in the major leagues through a relay screen. SSG also expressed their desire to heat up the dugout. Manager Kim said, “I saw a video of him shouting at the dugout. Foreign players need that kind of appearance. There are times when a casually throwing a word improves the atmosphere. When we talk, a bright image comes out.”

He has a pleasant personality, but when it comes to baseball, he is more serious than anyone else. Manager Kim laughed, saying, “He was careful when practicing. He practiced batting hard. He did his best even in an unfamiliar environment. There is no problem with the players. It would be better if he was good at baseball.”

It is a concern that he is not a big shot type hitter, but considering that SSG Landers Field is a hitter-friendly stadium, it is evaluated that 20 home runs are possible. Coach Kim said, “Actually, I wanted a hitter who could hit a long hit or hit a home run. Heredia isn’t that type of hitter. But I think he can hit a home run at home because he has fast bat speed and power. I wonder if there will be,” he said, expressing his anticipation.
