After making the trip overseas for the 2022 season, Yasiel Puig has found himself in familiar territory: postseason baseball. However, this year, he’s playing for his hero and legend, Vin Scully.
On Friday night, the Former Dodger helped his Kiwoom Heroes to a Game 5 win to advance to the semifinal round in the KBO League.

Win For Vin. He’s included the hashtag in a few of his most recent tweets since the legendary broadcaster passed away.
This past season, the 31-year-old right-fielder decided to sign a one-year contract to play for the Kiwoom Heroes in the KBO League. During his time there, he’s posted a .252 AVG with 22 home runs, including this one just a few nights ago.
You have to keep fighting for that one moments when you knows – that ball is yours. Thank you God ?? for my first postseason home run! Lets keep winning #heroes !#postseasonKBO #playoffs #winforvin pic.twitter.com/3NUxbYGBNA

“Vin is like a father to me, same to Tommy Lasorda and Mike Brito. We are so sad to miss all these three amazing guys. Sad for myself and for all baseball, for Los Angeles.”
