“It’s okay if I’m not a big shot. I hope I’m a hitter 먹튀검증with good batting average.”
SSG Landers recruited new foreign hitter Guillermo Heredia ahead of this season. Recruiting Heredia seems like a godsend when looking back at his performance so far.
In the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League match against KT Wiz held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 14th, Heredia started as the left fielder with the 4th batter and played an active role with 5 hits, 1 RBI and 2 runs in 5 at-bats, leading the team to an 8-1 victory.
Heredia regained the top spot in the batting average with 5 hits, the most hits in a game this season. He has 72 hits, 6 home runs, 41 runs batted in, 30 runs batted in, and a batting average of 0.335 OPS of 0.873 this season.
SSG coach Kim Won-hyung met with reporters ahead of the game against KT on the 14th and said about Heredia’s hitting, “If you look at the swing mechanism, he is a hitter who can hit the ball well. Recently, there is a lot of talk about the hitting side, but Heredia is a hitter who can hit many sides. He is a hitter,” he said.
He added, “Hitters who send only one course unilaterally lose a lot of batting average if they are caught in a shift, but if you look at Heredia’s batting ball distribution, they send batting balls to the entire stadium.”
Heredia has a small number of home runs, but her high batting average energizes the team’s batting line. It was a hitter that matched the color that manager Kim Won-hyung requested when recruiting a new foreign player.
Manager Kim Won-hyung said, “When I first recruited a foreign hitter, I said, ‘It’s okay if he’s not a big shot. I want him to be a hitter with good batting average.’
Heredia will hit 4th in the matchup on the 14th. Choi Jun-woo, who was called up today, will start immediately. SSG Choi Ji-hoon (center fielder) – Lee Jung-beom (right fielder) – Choi Jeong (3rd baseman) – Heredia (left fielder) – Choi Joo-hwan (designated hitter) – Park Seong-han (shortstop) – Kang Jin-seong (1st baseman) – Choi Jun-woo (2nd baseman) – Kim Min-sik (catcher) ) were lined up in order. The starting pitcher is Park Jong-hoon.
