Looking at the home run analysis table alone, it is by far the major league level. Lee Jae-won (24), a promising LG giant, surprised everyone again.
Lee Jae-won started the match against SSG at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 24th as the left fielder in the starting 8th, and fired a cannon from his first at-bat. It was a home run that gave SSG starting Loenis Elias (35), who had his KBO league debut that day, the first run in the league.
In the first inning,메이저사이트LG, who was hit by a home run with bases loaded by Park Seong-han, took the opportunity with Kim Min-seong picking a walk after two outs in the second inning. Then Lee Jae-won’s bat spun as hard as he could. Lee Jae-won, who saw the first ball, pulled it fiercely when a four-seam fastball with a speed of 146 km per hour entered his zone on the second pitch.
The batted ball led to a two-run home run that went over the left wall. It was Lee Jae-won’s third home run of the season. It was the moment when LG, who was able to give up the lead in the game after hitting a home run in a self-inflicted crisis with two errors in the first inning, regained strength with Lee Jae-won’s home run.
This is Lee Jae-won, who made a great home run hit this year. According to ‘Trackman’, which provides tracking data to 9 KBO league clubs, Lee Jae-won hit home runs with a batting speed of 170 km or more in the May 16 match against Jamsil kt.
His first home run in the 5th inning had a batting speed of 178.8 km and flew 136 m. The home run in the 7th inning recorded 174.8 km. On the 17th, in the 4th inning without a single base loaded, he blew a 181.8km bullet and recorded a sweeping, timely hit that simply passed the height of center fielder Alford.

The home run on the 24th was also a home run where one could feel the power of Lee Jae-won. His batting speed was 177.2 km, the second fastest among his home runs this season, and it flew 118.3 m. What is surprising is that the launch angle was a whopping 40.9 degrees.
Usually, the good launch angle for a home run is between 20 and 30 degrees. If the angle exceeds 35~40 degrees, the ball floats too high, so it is difficult to secure enough distance to go over the fence unless you have tolerable strength. However, Lee Jae-won’s power was also good. The ball flew 118.3 leisurely and landed on the left side of the stadium.
Even in the major leagues, it is rare to hit a home run with an angle of more than 40 degrees. Even if it flies with the same power and speed, it loses distance, so it often becomes a floating ball in the outfield. Joey Gallo is a typical example of a high-altitude homer. But Jaewon Lee did it. There was a major league home run today. Elias may be past his prime, but he’s still a pitcher with 22 major league wins.
