Anyone can tell it’s a powerful trio, please give me a strong nickname.”
In the new season, KT Wiz recruited a new foreign hitter, Mel Rojas Jr. Rojas has played for KT from 2017 to 2020. In 2020, he was named the MVP of the regular season with a batting average of 0.349 (third in the league), 47 homers (first), 192 hits (second), 135 RBIs (first), and 116 runs (first place).
With the addition of Rojas, KT has established a dynamite lineup with Rojas, Park Byung-ho, and Kang Baek-ho. It has acquired the Rookie of the Year award (Kang Baek-ho), MVP (Rohas), and home run king (Park Byung-ho).월카지노주소
Rojas has worked with Kang Baek-ho, but it is the first time for him to share a home run with Park Byung-ho. Coincidentally, the two players are rivals who competed as home run king in the past. In 2018, Park Byung-ho shot 43 home runs alongside Rojas, tying for second in this category. In 2019, Park Byung-ho became home run king with 33 home runs, but the following year, Rojas won the title with 47 home runs.
The fact that the two former home run kings united in one team has significantly changed the weight of the batting lineup. “I have become a teammate with Park Byung-ho who was competing for home runs. I’m looking forward to seeing how strong we will become,” Rojas said. “Park is also helping a lot as a training mate, and he will greatly help each other develop their batting performances.”
After overcoming injury and slump last year, Kang is also heralding a revival in the new season. Kang had a hard season last year as she was criticized for her loose play in the national team and her team. Due to panic disorder and cold, she was unable to play at bat due to regulation. Currently, she is set to return to the new season in good health.
“Park Byung-ho and Kang Baek-ho will be a stronger trio than any other team. Please give us a nickname that expresses our strength. I’m looking forward to it that much,” Rojas said with a smile.

Rojas was released in 2022 after a slump after entering the Japanese stage in 2021. He succeeded in reviving the team by changing the bat grip in the Dominican Republic league last year, but it is still unclear whether he will be able to show his skills as he returned after getting older than four years ago.
Rojas said, “In the first year of the Japanese stage, I couldn’t join the team normally due to COVID-19. I didn’t get many opportunities because I didn’t give a good first impression, but I think I did not have a bad performance compared to a small number of opportunities,” and added, “I saw my improvement in the Dominican League. I believe it will get better again in Korea.”
