INCHEON, June 20 (Yonhap) -- Lee Seung-yeop of the Samsung Lions became the greatest home run hitter in South Korean baseball on Thursday.
Lee belted his 352nd career home run against the SK Wyverns in the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) to overtake the retired All-Star Yang Joon-hyuk as the league's all-time leader.
Lee, 36, tied Yang's record last Saturday in his 1,321st game, and surpassed his former Samsung teammate in his 1,324th game. Yang retired in 2010 after playing 2,057 games in 18 seasons.
