Samsung Lions slugger Park Byung-ho has reached 400 home runs in his Korean-American career.

Byung-ho Park started at first base in the fourth inning of the Samsung Lions’ home game against the LG Twins at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu, South Korea, on March 13.

Leading off the second inning with the score tied 0-0, Park hit a four-pitch curveball (126 kilometers) on a 2B-1S pitch to LG starter Casey Kelly for a solo shot to left field. It was a big enough hit that he instantly realized it was a home run.

Park, who hit 12 home runs in 2016 for the Minnesota Twins of Major League Baseball (MLB), reached 400 career home runs in Korea and the U.S. with the home run.

Park, who became Samsung’s newest member through a one-for-one trade with Oh Jae-il (KT Wiz) on March 28, has seen the LAPAC effect in action.

He had a strong 153 at-bats with 46 doubles, 15 home runs, 스포츠토토 and an OPS of 1.058 in LAPAC before joining Samsung, and he hit three home runs using LAPAC as his home base from the 29th of last month against Daegu Kiwoom.

“All the players from all nine clubs know that this is a hitter-friendly stadium,” Park said. Now that I’m using it as my home field, I want to hit more long balls in home games and contribute to the team’s victory,” he said.

Park’s Rafa effect was once again on full display as he hit his 400th career home run for the Koreas.
