Seung-yeop Lee

Seung-yeop Lee was one of the most prolific home run hitters in the Korea Baseball Organization, where he was a five-time MVP, the most in league history. He also was named the best player at his position ten times, a league record. He set single-season home run records for the KBO and Asia (the latter being broken). He then played for eight years in Nippon Pro Baseball before returning to the KBO. He hit 646 homers between the KBO and NPB. Despite 7 years away, he held the KBO career homer record for a period. Lee also shares the mark for most homers in a World Baseball Classic. Not just a home run threat, he was the first KBO player to 2,000 career hits. He is also an Olympic Gold Medalist and won Gold in the Asian Games as well.
