‘A bloody battle in a tie in a crowd of 10,000 people’ A misunderstanding that ruined the heated atmosphere
Could it be a hit hindrance? Could it be defensive interference?
Professional baseball suffered from another miscarriage.
This happened in a match between LG and Hanwha held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium on the 20th.
In the bottom of the 9th inning, when both teams were playing 1-1, it was a safe first base situation.
When lead hitter Shin Min-jae got a hit, the LG bench sent out pinch hitter Jung Joo-hyun. Jung Joo-hyun, who came out at bat, took a bunt stance to send the runner from first base to second base
. Catcher Choi Jae-hun stood up, caught the ball, and immediately assumed a throwing posture for second base.
At this time, hitter Jung Joo-hyun threw a bat toward the ball that fell outside.
Joo-Hyun Jung’s bat hit Jae-Hoon Choi in the stomach. Choi Jae-hun rolled over in pain.
The four referees who saw this situation gathered in one place. It was for a 4-sim agreement on whether it was ‘defense interference’ that blocked the catcher’s throw or ‘hitting interference’ that interfered with the batter’s swing.
In the end, the referees made a decision of ‘obstruction of the hit’. Jung Joo-hyun went to first base, and first base runner Shin Min-jae was given the right to advance to second base.토토사이트
When referee Kwon Young-cheol explained through the indoor broadcast that the runner advanced due to hit interference, Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho jumped out. Director Choi Won-ho strongly protested, but the result did not change.
Hanwha, who was in a crisis with no 1st and 2nd bases, caught Min-seong Kim in a double play and then caught Hae-min Park with a fly in center field to avoid a run. As a result, no points were scored, and this decision did not determine the outcome.
However, the decision was concluded as a misjudgment by the KBO after the game.
The KBO said, “As a result of the referee’s additional confirmation, it was a situation that should have been judged as defensive interference, not hitting,” and said, “We plan to take follow-up measures such as disciplinary action against the referee.”
Another miscarriage drew a sigh from the crowd who visited the baseball field over the weekend.
On this day, Jamsil Baseball Stadium sold out all 23,750 seats, recording the third full crowd this season based on LG home games. Jamsil = Reporter Moonyoung Choi /2023.05.20/
