KIA Tigers’ Socrates Brito receives a car.

Socrates showed off his batting prowess by hitting a back-to-back home run in the third inning against the SSG Landers in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Gwangju Kia Champions Field on July 7. In the third inning, he hit a ball into the “KIA Home Run Zone” in the right-field outfield and received a car as a gift.

Socrates arched from his first at-bat. With the bases loaded in the first inning, Socrates took a 142-kilometer fastball from opposing starter Seung-gun Baek over the center field fence.

In his second at-bat of the third inning, Socrates’ bat was just as hot. After Ryu Ji-hyuk walked and Park Chan-ho singled to put runners on second and third, Socrates took advantage of a 139-kilometer fastball from Baek Seung-gun for a towering triple.

The ball traveled a long way and landed in the home run zone. KIA displays cars from its parent company, Kia Motors, in the home run zone, where the player who hits a home run receives a car. Socrates is well aware of this. As he crossed the plate, he showed his joy by spinning the steering wheel.스포츠토토

Socrates became the ninth protagonist to receive a car. Previously, Kim Jae-hwan, Choi Hee-seop, Oh Jae-il, Prestin Tucker, Kim Hyun-soo, and Na Sung-beom have hit balls into the home run zone.
