Brewers slugger Eric Thames went on the Korean 'Masked Singer' and crushed it
Before taking MLB by storm with 11 home runs in the first month of the 2017 season, Eric Thames was a star for the NC Dinos of the KBO, slugging 124 home runs in three season. On Saturday, he returned to Korea to appear on "King of Mask Singer" -- the Korean version of "The Masked Singer."
He started out with a classic:

After he was unmasked, Thames played to the home crowd with some K-pop, which he was able to sing entirely in Korean!

Of course, Thames is a man of many talents. In addition to being a skilled vocalist, Thames is quite strong. Usually, he shows off his strength by hitting home runs. On Saturday, he showed it off in a new way:
he also showed off his strength by having two women grab his arm and hang on the air. pic.twitter.com/HeTaYXOKsA- Sung Min Kim (@sung_minkim) January 20, 2019
