Dodgers: Yasiel Puig Crushes His First KBO Grand Slam

When Yasiel Puig was with the Dodgers, he made a habit out of igniting the crowd. Whether it be with monster homeruns or electric defense plays and inhuman throws, he was just exciting to watch in Los Angeles. 

But after the Dodgers traded him to the Reds in December of 2018, he’s found himself jumping all around the baseball world. Puig spent part of that season in Cincinatti before being traded to Cleveland, quite literally after an on-field brawl. 

Since then, Puig has been looking to make his way back to the big leagues. He played 62 games with El Águila de Veracruz of the Mexican League during the 2021 season. And this year, the former Dodgers outfielder is spending his time with the Kiwoom Heroes of the Korean Baseball League. He just crushed his first grand slam with them too, and it was electric. 

It was a majestic blast, something that Puig had done pretty often in his time with the Dodgers. He crushed 108 homeruns while with Los Angeles, driving in 331 runs and earning some MVP votes along the way.

  1. Yasiel had so much talent. But he never listened to coaching. Whether it was a cannon throw to home instead of second; or an attempt to turn a single into a double, he just tried to do his own thing. Sometimes it worked out. But the times it didn’t were often rally killers or allowed a runner to advance when we were on defense. Too bad. He had such a high ceiling.
