[Asian Games] Absurd Referee Decision… Baseball Game Delayed Over 20 Minutes Between Korea and Hong Kong
The players were confused and the tag play was also incorrect… Both teams are upset
The Korean national baseball team played its first game in a chaotic atmosphere due to the umpire’s poor decisions.
The baseball team led by coach Ryu Joong-il lasted about 20 minutes on offense in the bottom of the third inning, 카지노사이트
leading 1-0 in the first game of Group B against Hong Kong in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held at the first stadium of the Shaoxing Baseball and Softball Sports Center near Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China on the 1st.
I haven’t been able to play a game in a while.
The situation was like this.
In Korea, with no outs on first and second base, Kang Baek-ho (KT Wiz) hit a ball to the right,
Hong Kong’s right fielder jumped forward and caught the ball.
Second base runner Choi Ji-hoon (SSG Landers) and first base runner Noh Si-hwan (Hanwha Eagles),
who judged that the ball had been missed, hurriedly returned,
the opposing defense seemed to have completed a triple play by tagging second and first base in turn.
At this time, the Korean national team’s first base coach Lee Jong-yeol protested that Choi Ji-hoon had stepped on second base before Hong Kong’s throw,
the umpires accepted this and corrected it to say that it was a two-out, two-out situation.
However, the first base umpire again ordered second base runner Choi Ji-hoon to return to first base.
Before Kang Baek-ho hit the ball, the runner who was on second base was called to first base.
The baseball team protested against the absurd instructions, and after a long delay,
the umpire ruled that second base runner Choi Ji-hoon was out,
aying that he had mistaken the runner and called Noh Si-hwan back to first base.
This too was a miscarriage.
Noh Si-hwan had already passed Choi Ji-hoon, the runner on second base,
when Kang Baek-ho was at bat, and it was a situation where he could not be saved.
According to the rule that if the runner in front is out while base running,
the runner behind him is out, Noh Si-hwan had to be ruled out and second base runner Choi Ji-hoon had to be ruled safe.
