“It ended well”.

LG Twins manager Yeom Kyung-yeop has a short answer for the bench-clearing incident that sparked a dune bashing in Suwon against the KT Wiz on July 7: “It ended well.”메이저놀이터

The incident occurred in the top of the ninth inning with LG leading 7-3. Hong Chang-ki singled, Shin Min-jae walked, and Kim Hyun-soo singled to right to put runners on first and third. Choi Seung-min came in for Kim and stole second base.

Jung Joo-hyun followed with a grounder to second, but a KT infielder’s error allowed two runs to score. However, after Moon Bo-kyung singled, Oh Ji-hwan walked, and Moon Sung-joo walked two batters later, Park Hae-min was also hit by a pitch.

KT pitcher Ha Jun-ho suddenly faced three batters. There was a brief bench-clearing right after Park’s hit, but it was a confrontation, not a brawl.

It was explained that KT’s first baseman had stolen a base in the first and third innings when he let the first baseman go unchecked. After the game, while waiting to high-five his players, Yoon gave four fingers to the opposing bench.

Before KT’s game against the KIA Tigers at Gwangju-Kia Champions Field on Aug. 8, Yeom said briefly, “It ended well.” “It was a four-run lead, so it meant I stole a base,” he explained.

The two managers are from Gwangju and are two years apart. They have been close friends since their playing days. Lee was also an assistant coach at Nexen when Yeom was the head coach. “He’s one of my closest friends,” Yeom laughed.

Apparently, they cleared up the misunderstanding over the phone after the game. While the incident ended amicably, the coaches were still on a mission to win, and the nerves of even the best of friends got the better of them. I guess that’s one of the great things about the world of competition.
