It was a historic day for Nevada’s fine third baseman Tak-keung Yang. He slammed home run #300 in the Speeders 14-10 loss to the Miami Storm at SpeederDome.
He told reporters after the game that he was disappointed in losing the game. “It’s great to get that many homers, but I don’t play for homers — I play to win. That’s the name of the game.”
In his milestone-making game Yang went 2 for 3, hitting home run #301 later that game, and scored 3 runs and collected 4 RBI. That home run put him in a select group of ballplayers.
Yang is batting .291 lifetime with 888 hits, 132 doubles, 9 triples, 301 home runs, 756 RBIs to date. He has also scored 682 runs. He is only the 9th player in the Bull League to reach the 300 HR’s milestone.
