Watch out, Giancarlo Stanton.
Nexen Heroes first baseman Park Byung-ho leads the Korea Baseball Organization with 39 home runs. Park hit two on Friday, and he absolutely crushed the first one.
Park destroyed a baseball in the third inning of the Heroes’ 8-2 victory over the Doosan Bears, launching it 475 feet. It cleared the enormous scoreboard in center field, which is estimated as being 65 feet high.
In the MLB, only four players have hit jacks this season that traveled 475 feet or more: Mike Trout (489), Giancarlo Stanton (484), David Ortiz (482), and Justin Upton (477).
