Professional baseball continues on in South Korea as KBO League games are taking place in front of zero fans and a handful of cheerleaders, at the moment. But the promotions must go on! Former MLB outfielder Preston Tucker, who spent time with the Houston Astros and Atlanta Braves, is now a member of the Kia Tigers, and achieved a special feat in a recent game. Tucker launched a home run and won a brand new Kia in the process, absolutely drilling a vehicle stationed in right field.

The left-handed slugger hit a home run in the perfect spot as it landed right near the Kia Sorrento in the outfield.

That apparently means he won the car, and MLB fans might be inspired to petition for similar contests in our country when play resumes. If the owners are going to screw over the players, salary-wise, a new car might help smooth tensions.

Playing with zero fans in attendance creates a prime opportunity for balls to land in the stands and sit there for no one to pick up. Instead, Tucker took advantage of his team's sponsorship deal, and his perfect swing resulted in a brand new ride. Not a bad way to celebrate a home run.
