Cincinnati Reds monster rookie Ellie de la Cruz (21) broke the record for the best infielder throwing in 4 days.
On the 21st (Korean time), Cruz started as the first batter shortstop in the 2023 Major League (MLB) San Francisco Giants game held at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.
On this day, Cruise showed off a phenomenal performance that caught the attention. In the top of the fourth inning, when Cincinnati was leading 2-0, San Francisco’s Luis Matos hit a double that crossed the left fielder’s height with two out and first base.카지노사이트
In the meantime, first base runner Wilmer Flores rushed home, but Cruz, who received a throw from the left fielder, quickly threw it home. Catcher Luke Meili, who received a one-bound throw, tagged out the runner to end the inning.
The speed of the throw that Cruise threw into the home was a whopping 99.8 miles (160.6 km). This is the fastest infield throw record in MLB since Statcast measurements began in 2015.
Previously, on the 17th against the Milwaukee Brewers, Cruz threw a new infield record by throwing 97.9 miles (about 157.6 km), and broke the record in 4 days.
After the game, Cruz expressed confidence, “I know I can throw fast. I’m ready to throw fast whenever I need it. I can throw harder than now.”
De la Cruz, who made his major league debut in June of this year, participated in 37 games and recorded a batting average of 0.279, 4 homers, 16 RBIs, 29 points, 17 stolen bases, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.763.
On the 24th of last month, Cruz received a lot of attention by achieving a cycling hit against the Atlanta Braves, and in the Milwaukee game on the 9th, he showed off his strength by stealing second and third bases in one inning, followed by home stealing.
