SSG won the Korean Series following the regular season two years after its foundation. On the other hand, the Heroes remained in second place in the Korean Series in 2022 following 2014 and 2019, promising their first championship.
Tears were moist in the eyes of Puig, a “wild horse” who was greeting fans. His first baseball appearance in Korea seemed more desperate than anyone else. 토토
Puig was so determined to win the championship that he promised to “have a party to celebrate the championship with his fellow players at his home in Miami” if Kiwoom wins the Korean Series.
Puig batted .277 with 21 home runs and 73 RBIs and 65 runs in 126 games in the 2022 season. In particular, in the second half of the year, he showed a hot fire bat with a batting average of 0.316 home runs, 12 RBIs, 36 runs scored in 56 games.
Puig also showed a strong impact in the postseason. He was active with 18 hits in 58 at-bats in 15 games with 0.310 home runs, 3 RBIs, 10 runs scored and 7 runs.
With Puig’s performance, Kiwoom advanced to the Korean Series, beating KT and LG. Puig said during the Korean Series, “The final alma mater is the United States. “If I can’t go to the U.S., I want to play baseball in Korea again,” he said.
Puig will take a break in Korea and then leave for the U.S. It is still undecided whether we will be able to see each other again in the KBO League in 2023. However, Puig, who even showed hot tears as a runner-up, was very impressed.
