It seems to have rubbed on my body메이저놀이터, but I can’t play with empty tags’
SSG Landers Heredia sent a charming gesture to referee Kim Jeong-guk on the 142km body slider of Kiwoom starter An Woo-jin at the beginning of the 4th inning of Kiwoom’s game of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the afternoon of the 6th.
Heredia, who appeared as the lead batter in the top of the 9th inning with a 2-1 lead, got on base with a clean left-handed hit to Kiwoom Kim Seong-jin. Afterwards, Seong-Han Park with 1 company and 1st base succeeded in stealing 2nd base in an at-bat, creating an additional point chance.
Kiwoom third baseman Lee Won-seok tagged Heredia with an empty glove when Park Sung-han’s first baseman grounded. Heredia pretended to be surprised and hugged Lee Won-seok tightly. Then he pointed his eyes at Lee Won-seok and told him that he was also looking at them.
In the match against Kiwoom on the 7th, Heredia contributed greatly to the team winning 7-6 by going 4 hits and 2 RBIs in 6 at-bats. 1st in batting average of 0.373, tied for 11th with 3 home runs, 1st with 44 hits, and 2nd with 26 RBIs.▲ SSG Landers Heredia is touching her uniform while being surprised by the cheek on her side.▲ SSG Landers Heredia is arguing with Lee Won-seok’s empty glove tag prank.
