19 years later, he still lives and breathes in Dodgers history

Muncy made four hits (three homers) and four RBIs from five times at bat in a game against the Atlanta Braves in the “2024 Major League” held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California on Saturday. Muncy led the team’s great victory by hitting three home runs (in the second inning) to gain the upper hand of the game, home runs (in the seventh inning) to win the game away from Atlanta’s pursuit, and home runs (in the eighth inning) to celebrate his team’s great victory.

Muncy is a hitter who has recorded 188 home runs in the Major League so far. He is now in the top 10 in Dodgers franchise history. Since moving to Dodgers in 2018, he has recorded 35 home runs all of a sudden, with 35 home runs in 2019, 36 in 2021, and 36 last year, making four seasons with more than 30 home runs. He is considered one of the most popular OPS-type hitters in the league. However, Muncy has never had three home runs in a game.

Even in the long history of the Dodgers, it is not easy to find “three homers in a game.” He was recorded as the 19th player in the history of the Dodgers to hit more than three homers in a game. Choi Hee-sup, who we are glad to see, was summoned to the club. Choi is also a member of the club.

After dropping out of college, Choi tried to challenge for i Major League, and made his debut in the Major League with the Chicago Cubs in 2002, and after going through a trade, he joined the LA Dodgers in 2004. In 2005, he posted a batting average of 0.253, 15 homers, 42 RBIs, and an OPS (on-base plus slugging) of 0.789 in 133 games, displaying stellar performance in his performance. 2005 was Choi’s last season in the Major League.

In his career, Choi has recorded a total of four multi-homer games and only three homers in a game. It was a game against Minnesota at the Dodger Stadium, which was held on June 13, 2005. At the time, Choi left a strong impression on his fans by hitting one homerun each in the first, fourth and sixth innings. All three of his home runs flew over the right fence. It was Choi’s life-long game.

Choi’s record at the time was the eighth “three homers in a game” in Dodgers’ history. Prior to that, Mike Piazza (1996) and Sean Green (2001-2002) had recorded it. After Choi, this record was not released for a while, but Andre Idea achieved it in 2009, and Juan Uribe (2013), Yasmani Grandal (2016), Adrian González (2015-2016), Corey Seager (2016-2017), Yasiel Puig (2018), Justin Turner (2019), A.J. Pollock (2019), Mookie Betts (2020), and Trace Thompson (2023).

In any case, it is welcome news to hear Muncy’s batting performance improve. Muncy had some difficulties as his batting average declined over the past two years. He had a batting average of 0.196 in 2022 and a batting average of only 0.212, respectively in 2023. However, no matter how OPS-type batters are, their batting average has fallen too low, which has led to a prolonged slump. However, this year, he recovered his level when he was in good spirits with a batting average of 0.262 and an on-base percentage of 0.369 in the first 31 games. He also boasts an excellent OPS of 0.921. The Dodgers was already on fire until Muncy.
