Card Of The Week June 13

In the fifth inning of today's game against the Swallows, Wladimir Balentien of the Hawks hit his 300th career NPB home run.  Coincidentally, it was also his 1000th hit in NPB.  He became just the fourth foreign player to reach that milestone, behind Tuffy Rhodes, Alex Ramirez and Alex Cabrera.  He hit his 301st home run in his next at bat two innings later.

Here's a card of Balentien from 2013, the season in which he hit a fifth of those 300 home runs:
