“I really wanted to play for my younger brothers who must have had a heavy heart.”

Heo Kyung-min started as a 9th hitter and 3rd baseman in the 13th game of the season with the Hanwha Eagles of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 11th, recording 4 at-bats, 2 hits, 1 home run, 4 RBIs, 2 runs, 1 walk, He led Doosan’s 11-4 victory.
Heo Kyung-min turned the bat vigorously from the first at-bat that day. In the top of the second inning, when Doosan led 1-0, he hit a solo home run against Hanwha starting pitcher Han Seung-hyuk with no runners out. He showed off his good condition with his fifth home run of the season and his second touch in the second half.
Heo Kyung-min’s performance continued. In the top of the 3rd inning, when Doosan was leading 4-0, pitcher Lee Tae-yang, who had changed, hit 3 RBIs and 2 bases in a chance with 2 outs and bases loaded. He threw a sharp ball that cut cleanly through the middle left and completely brought the flow of the game to Doosan.
Heo Gyeong-min recently increased his streak of hits in consecutive games to ‘6’ and raised his batting average to 0.274 (84 hits in 307 at-bats). In nine games in August, he hit hard with a batting average of 0.314 (11 hits in 35 at-bats) and an OPS of 0.928.
Heo Kyung-min said, “I was thinking of hitting a home run in the first at-bat somehow from a good point, but a mistake came in. I have a good memory in Daejeon, and today seems to be such a good day.”
In the case of a sweeping double in the top of the third inning, he showed more concentration than usual. In a situation where Kim In-tae and Jang Seung-hyeon stepped down due to a fly ball and a strikeout, respectively, I was most worried about the part where my juniors would blame themselves and bow their heads if I couldn’t solve it.
Heo Gyeong-min said, “I felt like my younger siblings (Kim In-tae, Jang Seung-hyun) had a burden on their minds because they couldn’t hit the bases without a hit, and I wanted to relieve that burden by solving it.” Everyone is doing so well, so I hope you don’t feel burdened and just do it like you are now.”
Also, “I’ve been playing well in the ninth batting order lately, but I have no intention of continuing to be in the ninth. As the club gave me a good contract (a total of 8.5 billion won for six years), I have to do it with pressure in the top batting order, but I didn’t this season. 9 It’s embarrassing for me to play in the first order, but right now I think it’s right to do my best to help the team win every game.”
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop also expressed satisfaction with his captain’s performance, saying, “Heo Kyung-min’s 3 RBIs and doubles brought the victory in the bases loaded chance in the top of the 3rd inning.”
