“Isn’t this something you have to say twice?”
Samsung coach Park Jin-man (47) mentioned the ‘beware of the check ball’ that occurred in the previous day’s game against KT. For a moment, he seemed to be ‘crying.’
Coach Park Jin-man met with reporters at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 20th and said, “Yesterday, the referee once warned Kim Tae-hoon. I understood up to that point. Then he went up to the mound.”
He continued, “It is true that I got angry for a moment. It won’t happen twice, right? “I wondered if it would have been different if we were a team competing for rankings,” he emphasized.
The situation occurred in the bottom of the 8th inning the previous day. Samsung is behind 1-4. Kim Tae-hoon, who came up in the bottom of the 8th inning, walked Bae Jeong-dae with one out. The next batter is Kim Sang-su.
Taehoon Kim threw the first ball and then checked first base on five consecutive pitches. After that, the second ball became a ball. He threw one more check pitch before pitching the third pitch. There were boos from the audience, but Kim Tae-hoon threw another check.
At this time, referee Oh Hoon-gyu came up to the mound. It is interpreted that he requested rapid progress. At the same time, director Park Jin-man got angry. Of course, checks and balances are also a part of the game. I decided it wasn’t something I could stop.
Rather, Kim Tae-hoon was shaken. He got a hit from Kim Sang-soo and walked Park Kyung-soo. With one out and bases loaded. He struck out Ahn Chi-young, but gave up two RBIs and a timely hit to Hwang Jae-gyun, bringing the score to 1-6.
Samsung dropped Kim Tae-hoon and promoted Choi Ji-gwang. However, Choi Ji-kwang hit a timely hit from Kang Baek-ho again, making the score 1-7. Kim Tae-hoon’s loss was 3 points.
Manager Park Jin-man said, “Yesterday, the umpire team leader was the second base umpire. He explained it to me and also told the referee not to do it. “He was honestly angry, but when he saw that, he calmed down a bit.”
The KBO League regulations state that ‘pitchers should refrain from using unnecessary checks.’ However, it is necessary to consider whether Kim Tae-hoon’s checks were ‘unnecessary’ checks. 3 points behind. Additional goals must be prevented. Moreover, there is no limit to the number of checks.토토사이트
Coach Park Jin-man said, “I asked the referee, and he said, ‘He just went up and didn’t say much.’ Isn’t it a bit strange? A score of 3 points is not something we can’t keep up with. Shouldn’t it be stopped? They say it’s a lot of checks, but it’s something that can be done. “I don’t know why they are imposing sanctions,” he said, shaking his head.
KT is currently in second place. Samsung ranked 9th. What would it have been like if Samsung was fighting for rankings at the top? Still, would the referee have responded the same way? It was a moment when Samsung and Director Park Jin-man had many thoughts.
