Park Hits 40 Homeruns for Third Consecutive Season

After a break to give major league baseball a try, Park Byung-Ho returned to the KBO and hit 40 homeruns for the third consecutive season. Even after missing a month of the season due to a hamstring injury he was able to hit 40 homeruns. No KBO player has hit 40 homeruns in three consecutive seasons. Lee Seung-Yeop, Eric Thames (now with the Brewers) and Cho Jeong have hit 40 homeruns in two consecutive seasons. An injury to Jeong prevented him from hitting 40 homeruns this year to join Park with three consecutive 40 homerun seasons.

In 2014 and 2015 Park actually hit 52 and 53 homeruns. He then spent two years in the United States after the Minnesota Twins signed him. He spent all of the 2017 season in the Twins minor league system.
