Out of the park for Park, blast first career homerun in the Major Leagues

(Out of the Park!)

New Minnesota Twins addition Park Byung-ho (29 years old) blasted his first Major league homerun in the big leagues today, facing off against KC Royals Joakim Soria at the top of the 8th inning, on a 1-1 count, Park blasted one deep to left for a solo shot, giving the Twins a 3-2 lead in the late innings. The distance of his homerun was said to be 132 meters, and the ball left his bat at approximately 111 MPH. The Twins lost the game 4-3. Nevermind the loss, it’s still a long season with MORE homeruns to hit. Welcome to the Major Leagues, Park!

Park is currently hitting .222 (2 for 9) in 3 games played so far, now with a homerun and an RBI under his belt in his first year playing in the big leagues.

Ready Park Byung-ho’s homerun chant song, Twins fans. (English version of the song was made by Nato Coles).

  1. Whoo hoo!!!

    Sano – Park, the new Bash Brothers! And pretty soon they’ll have Buxton, who raked a couple of doubles the other day, hitting in front of them. I’d hate to be a pitcher trying to keep Buxton from stealing at the same time I’m trying to not hang one to one of the big boys.

    Buckle up Ren, this is going to be fun.
