“You got hit because of you” The sand dune that flew after the bat flip… It ended without Benkl, an unspoken rule

Hanwha outfielder Lee Jin-young (27) hit a home run for the first time in his baseball career on the 4th at the Daejeon Samsung Game. Lee Jin-young, who came in as a pinch hitter in the 5th inning when Hanhwa led 6-0 and was chased by 6-5, hit Samsung’s changed pitcher Woo Kyu-min’s second curve and decorated it with a full baseman that went over the left-middle fence. A wedge that opened the score to 10-5. It was a shot that led to Hanwha’s victory with the final score of the game that day. 먹튀검증

Sensing a home run the moment he hit, Lee Jin-young threw the bat high. After performing his signature bat flip, he raised his right hand while looking at the first base Hanwha dugout. He clenched his fists and roared loudly, and Eagle Spark became a crucible of enthusiasm. It was a home run at the decisive moment, so it was worth enjoying enough joy, but it was a somewhat stimulating action from the opposing team’s point of view. 

Coincidentally, Woo Kyu-min, who was hit by a home run, threw one or two consecutive balls toward Lee Do-yoon, the next hitter. Then, the 136km fastball in the third ball hit the back of Lee Do-yoon’s right leg. 3 consecutive pitches to the inside with the 4 balls that came out after the bat flip. There seemed to be no intention. 

After the game, Lee Jin-young said, “Do-yoon hyung came and said, ‘I got hit because of you. We laughed at each other when he said, ‘Isn’t the on-base rate still going up? There was some feeling among the players, and it was accepted and passed as a part of baseball and an implicit rule. 

Looking back at the moment of the home run, pitcher Woo Kyu-min looked at the batted ball. I didn’t see Lee Jin-young doing a bat flip and celebrating. If Beanball is correct, it can be inferred that it is not Woo Gyu-min’s individual judgment. 

On the 3rd and 4th, against Hanwha, batters hit four balls six times. Following Oh Jae-il in the 5th inning and Kim Ji-chan in the 9th inning in the 3rd game, Kim Jae-seong in the 4th inning, Kim Dong-yeop in the 5th inning, Kim Ji-chan in the 7th inning, and Jose Pirella in the 8th inning continued to be hit by the balls of Hanwha pitchers. In the 5th inning, Kim Dong-yeop showed an uncomfortable feeling while looking at Sanchez as Hanwha pitcher Rickard. 

It was a time when Samsung needed a ‘message’ to the opponent, even for the protection of fellow players. Although ‘Fadon’ is common in the KBO league, Lee Jin-young’s ceremony was worthy of stimulating Samsung as it was matched with the preceding four balls. 

Looking at the atmosphere, it seemed like a bench clearing would happen, but there was no mishap. Lee Do-yoon, who was hit by Woo Kyu-min’s ball, also calmly accepted the sand dune and walked to first base. Then, in the 8th inning, with no runners on the 2nd, Hanwha Kang Jae-min threw a sand dune toward Pirella’s face, but immediately took off his hat and apologized, indicating that it was not intentional. Pirella also accepted the apology with a thumbs up. It could have been a spur-of-the-moment situation, but neither team’s players crossed the line. 

On the other hand, Lee Jin-young said about his bat flip, “I don’t do it because I want to do it. I used to run fast when I was young, but I used to let go of the bat as I quickly became in shape to run (to first base) after hitting. If it fits (a bat flip), then so be it. I don’t want to do it, but it comes out naturally,” he said. “I don’t remember how I did the home run ceremony. I was so happy because it was my first home run with the bases loaded, and I was distracted. I think I will watch a lot of home run videos,” he said.
