LG Twins manager Yoon Kyung-yeop has been ejected for the first time this season.

The 2023 KBO Baseball League game between the Kiwoom Heroes and LG was held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on March 3.

The controversial play occurred in the bottom of the fifth inning, when LG took the lead and Kiwoom followed suit. Moon Bo-kyung, the leadoff hitter, singled up the middle. The next batter, Park Dong-won, laid down a bunt. The ball traveled exquisitely down the third base line, and Kiwoom third baseman Song Sung-moon quickly caught the ball and threw to first base.

The ball hit the shoulder of Park Dong-won, who was sprinting to first base. Kiwoom first baseman Lee Won-seok, who was unable to catch the ball and collided with Park on the wrist, complained of pain.

The initial call was safe, but Kiwoom immediately requested a video review, which resulted in a ruling that Park Dong-won was out for three feet of fielding interference and Moon Bo-kyung, who had run to third base, was called out for returning to first base.

The Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) made a major overhaul to the rule on March 20 after a number of controversial calls this year. The decision was made that a runner will be called out for obstruction if the umpire determines that the runner’s run was “obstructed,” and that a runner will also be called out for obstruction if the umpire determines that the runner’s run inside the three-foot line was clearly “obstructed” by a defense (throw or catch). In this case, the umpires determined that Park Dong-won’s run was a cause of defensive interference.먹튀검증

The umpires rushed out of the dugout to protest, but the decision was not changed. He was later ordered to leave the game for protesting the video review.

Meanwhile, Kiwoom’s Lee Won-seok, who complained of wrist pain after colliding with Park Dong-won, was immediately replaced by Kim Joo-hyung. According to Kiwoom officials, Lee Won-seok is currently undergoing treatment for icing.
