‘Catcher Knows Catcher’s Pain’ Samsung catcher Kim Tae-gun was genuinely worried about Doosan’s Yang Ji-ji, who collapsed after a collision at home, even though it wasn’t intentional 먹튀검증.
Jamsil Baseball Stadium on April 24, the day of the game between the Doosan Bears and Samsung Lions. Samsung, looking to avenge the previous day’s loss, sent Suarez to the mound, while Doosan, challenging for a winning streak, sent Kim Dong-ju to the mound.
The field was the scene of fierce battles every day. It was a dizzying scene in the first inning. Yang, who has been hitting well in his last 10 games, going 14-for-35 with four doubles, three home runs and nine RBIs, started at third base. Batting alongside starter Kim Dong-joo, Yang gave up a single to Samsung’s leadoff hitter Kim Hyun-joon in the top of the first, but he got Lee Jae-hyun, Guzauk, and Perella to pop out to end the inning.
Doosan attacks in the bottom of the first inning. In the second inning, Yang drew a walk against Samsung starter Suarez to load the bases. Yang Seok-hwan followed with a single to put runners on second and third. Rojas, the No. 5 hitter, singled to right and Yang made a strong run to second base. As third base coach Jung Soo-sung turned his arm, Yang dared to fly home.
Catcher Kim Tae-gun, who caught a direct hit from Samsung right fielder Koo Ja-rook, stretched out his glove to tag runner Yang Ji, who was rushing home. Their feet collided. Kim Tae-gun made a necessary defensive move to catch the ball and make the tag, but Yang’s right foot was blocked.
Won Shim was tagged out. Manager Lee Seung-yeop requested a video review to determine if there was a home run, but the review declared that there was no home run prevention violation.
As Yang Ji-soo wrapped his leg and complained of pain after the collision, Kim Tae-gun looked at the fallen senior with a worried expression. Senior Kim Hansu and a trainer rushed onto the field to check his leg, and thankfully, Yang Ji got up under his own power.
Although it wasn’t intentional, Kim made an apologetic gesture to Yang Ji as he complained of pain after the collision.
Yang was helped to the dugout. He took the field in the next inning wearing a catcher’s mask, but when Oh Jae-il batted in the top of the second inning after a hit by Kang Kang-ul, Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop replaced Yang Ji, who had collided at home in the previous inning, with Jang Seung-hyun for player protection.
Without the key offensive player, Doosan lost 6-1 to Samsung.
