In the American minor leagues, a home run of great distance came.
According to MLB.com, the MLB official website, on the 21st (Korean time), Joe Adele (24), who plays for Triple-A (Salt Lake Biz) affiliated with the Los Angeles Angels메이저사이트, hit a terrifying home run with a distance of 514 feet (156.7m) that day. At the end of the 8th inning, where the home game was trailing 8-11 against the Sugar Land Space Cowboys, a Triple-A team under the Houston Astros, he pulled the 4th pitch of right-handed pitcher Austin Hansen from 2nd out, 1st and 2nd base, and crossed the left fence. In the ball count 3-ball no strike, he did not miss the mistake that was driven in the middle.
MLB.com said, ‘Adele’s home run flew at a speed of 113.6 miles per hour (182.8 km/h). It is the longest home run in the minor leagues and MLB this season,” and said, “Not only that, but it is also the longest home run since Statcast started tracking home runs.” After the introduction of Statcast, MLB’s longest home run was Norma Mazara’s 505 feet (153.9m). Adele went 1-for-4 with 1 walk and 3 RBI against Sugar Land as the team lost 11-12.
Adele was a prospect selected with the 10th overall pick in the first round of the 2017 draft. He received only the down payment of 4,376,800 dollars (5.65 billion won). He debuted in MLB in 2020 and has a career (4 years) batting average of 0.215, 16 homers and 61 RBIs. This season, he is continuing his good performance at Triple-A with a batting average of 0.284, 20 homers and 50 RBIs. He has a high OPS of 0.960, a combined on-base percentage (0.367) and slugging percentage (0.593). He went 9-for-22 over five games from the last 15. He steadily improved his sense of hitting and left a strong impression with a long-distance home run on the 21st.
Evaluation that a big league call-up is imminent. MLB.com said, “Adele’s secret to success is to keep her mind calm,” adding, “Before the game, I listen to R&B singer Keisha Cole’s songs to calm my mind. Most players listen to hip-hop or rap to cheer them up, but Adele is the complete opposite.’
