The first was only Choi.
He cut off the ball to create a full count situation, then hit the ball at close to 150 km/h.
Choi Ji-man, who was not very happy with the home run and returned home calmly, released his overflowing excitement in the dugout.

Bae Ji-hwan, who kicked up his body changeup, sensed the home run and immediately celebrated with a ‘bat flip’ ceremony by throwing a bat.
Bae Ji-hwan went hitless in 4 at-bats before kicking off his first at-bat with a ‘swing strikeout’ and hitting a ‘three-run home run’.

He hit a major league walk-off home run against Presley, the league’s best finisher with 33 saves last season, leading the team to a 7-4 victory.
MLB.COM praised it, saying, “Bae Ji-hwan and Choi Man-man wrote the history of Korean baseball,” but this is the first time that Korean players hit a home run in one game in the major leagues.
