Kim Do-young → Peraza’s Sudden Death won twice! There was a contribution behind Austin’s victory

LG Twins Austin Dean won the home run race in the 2024 All-Star Game.

Austin won the All-Star Friday Home Run Race held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 5th.

Austin previously tied for second place along with Kim Do-young of the KIA Tigers by hitting four in the first round. First place Hanwha Eagles’ Jonathan Peraza (nine) advanced to the finals early on.

Austin took the lead in psychological warfare with Kim Do-young by shooting a home run in a single shot in Sudden Death.메이저사이트

The final match against Peraza was also a fierce battle. While Austin managed to hit four, Peraza had two outs and already had four. However, he failed to hit a single game as if he were lying and entered the final round of Sudden Death.

Austin won the title after a close game. His son Dallas and wife, who always looked at him with bright eyes and cheered for him, gave him a big boost. Austin hugged Seo In-seok, LG manager, who threw a batting ball.

Speaking to Austin after the game, he said, “Honestly, I didn’t expect it at all. I’m in my second year this year, and I wanted to enjoy it…”I didn’t expect to win the title after winning all the games. I’ve never experienced anything like this before,” he said.

The batting ball pitcher he himself chose was Seo In-seok, a manager in the first team who manages schedules of LG’s first team players. After working as a bullpen pitcher for a while at LG, he officially worked as a manager.

I accidentally saw the batting ball thrown during training and liked it. I once jokingly said, “If I go to the home run race, throw it to me,” but it became a reality.

Austin expressed his gratitude, saying, “I think you must have been more nervous than me, but you did a good job,” while expressing his heartwarming emotion by saying that he would give all the prize money to his manager. Home Run Derby winner is 5 million won, LG Cinebeam Cube is 1 million won, runner-up (Peraza) is 1 million won, and the distance prize (KT Wiz Rojas, 130m) is Galaxy Tab S9.

When asked about his son’s feelings, Austin replied, “Mom and Dad, I can only do ‘Give me the ball’ yet,” and his innocent cuteness made the audience laugh.

“When I get married and have a child, I get the strength of my parents. I felt like I was playing with my wife and child, but I even won the championship. In fact, I was rooting for Peraza as a foreign player. I thought I would lose against Kim Do-young in Sudden Death, but I think she was a little nervous because she was the first All-Star Week.”

Is there any special performance you prepared for the All-Star Game? Austin smiled and said, “By the way, Dawson (Keum Heroes) is likely to win the title. He is full of showmanship. He is nice to me and my family outside the ballpark. I wish him well.”
