Clutch hitter vs strike king… Crying and laughing at the foreign batter
Each professional baseball team is crying and laughing at the performance of foreign hitters.

This is Austin Dean, a foreign hitter from LG who scored 4 hits in one game.
Austin is erasing LG’s dark history of foreign batters with clothesline-like batting balls.
He even pulled off a home run like a stinger missile with an exit velocity of 180.1 km.

However, Hanwha’s Brian O’Grady only struck out in numerous chances, let alone a home run.
The strikeout rate was 46% with 31 strikeouts in 68 at-bats, but was struck out on a swing with a 139 km fastball and was eventually demoted to the second group.
