The arrival of new shortstop Addison Russell has breathed new life into the Kiwoom Heroes,on a six-game winning streak and rising quickly as the KBO reaches the halfway point. The Heroes are now only four games behind the NC Dinos.
In his Korean debut on Tuesday, former major league All-Star shortstop Addison Russell got a lot of firsts out of the way. He got his first hit, scored his first run and delivered his first RBI in the KBO.
The Kiwoom Heroes on Saturday defended their signing of a former major league player with a history of domestic abuse, saying the case wasn't as serious as it had been known.
