Anyone can see LG Jung Joo-Hyun’s defensive obstruction… Referee Committee “Follow-up measures of the referee”

Another fatal mistake came out in a professional baseball game with a crowd of 10,000 spectators.

The ‘2023 KBO League’ Hanwha Eagles-LG Twins match held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium on the 20th.

A problematic situation occurred in the LG attack at the end of the 9th inning, where the score was 1-1.

From the first base out of the box, pinch hitter Jung Joo-hyun entered the plate. Pitcher Park Sang-won and catcher Choi Jae-hoon, who saw the first base runner’s attempt to steal the ball at 1B1S, took the ball away. At this time, Jung Joo-hyun made a swing as if throwing the bat toward the catcher, and catcher Choi Jae-hoon was hit by the bat and collapsed without even throwing the ball to second base.

Anyone could see it as Jung Joo-hyun’s defensive interference, who swung as if throwing a bat, but the referees declared Choi Jae-hoon’s interference with the strike through a 4-sim agreement. Due to a misjudgment, first base runner Shin Min-jae was recognized for stealing, and Jung Joo-hyun rather went to first base.

Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho also protested at the unconvincing decision, but the game went on as it was. Since then, LG has been unable to save the chance due to Kim Min-seong’s double play, so it went into extension. It was a situation that could lead to LG’s ending victory depending on the misjudgment.

The game ended 1-1 after 12 extra innings.

The KBO Referees Committee acknowledged the misjudgment through additional reading. The referee committee said, “As a result of additional checks, it was a situation that should have been judged as defensive interference rather than hitting interference.토스카지노 We plan to take follow-up measures such as disciplinary action by the referee.”

It is the second time this season that the KBO admitted to misapplying the rules through a later review, following the KT Wiz-Lotte Giants match at Sajik Stadium on April 7th.
