“I threw the bat. If I hit normally, it is correct to hit. I threw the bat and interfered with Choi Jae-hoon’s throw. Personally, it’s a difficult decision to understand.”
In the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League LG Twins-Hanwha Eagles game held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 20th, KBSN commentator Ryu Ji-hyun said about the decision made at the end of the 9th inning against 1-1.
In the end, it was a mistake.메이저사이트
The situation was this. Leading batter Shin Min-jae hit first base safely, and LG attempted a bunt strategy by pinch-hitting Jung Joo-hyun at Lee Jae-won’s at-bat. Hanwha Battery pitched out in anticipation of LG’s bunt. Catcher Choi Jae-hoon fell far and caught the ball.
At this moment, Jung Joo-hyun threw the bat and tried to hit the ball somehow. It was to prevent Shin Min-jae, who had already started, from being out.
The bat thrown by Joo-Hyun Jung hit Jae-Hoon Choi’s glove, and Jae-Hoon Choi collapsed in pain.
However, as a result of an agreement among four referees, including Kwon Young-chul, Jeon Il-soo, Kim Byeong-ju, and Yu Deok-hyeong, a decision was made that it was ‘obstruction of the hit’. It is said that the catcher held out his glove and interfered with the batter’s hitting.
Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho jumped out and protested by taking direct action, but the decision did not change. Shin Min-jae advances to second base, and hitter Jung Joo-hyun automatically goes to first base and becomes 1st and 2nd base safely, and Hanwha faces a crisis. It didn’t lead to a real point, but it left a feeling of discomfort.
Judging from the relay screen, Jung Joo-Hyun threw a bat and Choi Jae-Hoon was hit, so it looked rather like a ‘defense obstruction’. Not only commentator Ryu Ji-hyun, who was broadcasting the game, but also commentator Kim Tae-gyun, said, “It’s difficult to understand.”
just as expected. It was a mistake. After the game, KBO acknowledged the mistake of the situation. KBO explained, “As a result of the referee’s additional confirmation, it was a situation that should have been judged as defensive interference rather than hitting interference,” and “plans to take follow-up measures such as disciplinary action against the referee.”
Heo Woon, chairman of the referee, explained more precisely. In a phone call with My Daily, referee chairman Huh said, “According to the rules, if the batter was in a state where the bat was in contact with his hand for a little bit, it is a hit interruption.
However, in the field, it can be difficult to see if the bat has fallen from the hand momentarily. That’s why we reached a 4-sim agreement. This is because it is not a situation for video reading.
Referee Chairman Huh said, “The 4th trial agreement is the final decision. Even if it is wrong, we cannot raise an objection. It is not a situation where it should be a problem or not. The bat thrown by the batter hit the catcher. It was an obstruction. It was correct to explain the exact situation, so I announced the mistake.”
