A ball boy requesting a video review? The game was stopped to catch a double that fell on the line
A ball boy put his glove on to catch a hit, so the game was stopped.
SSG Oh Tae-gon’s 메이저사이트double in the right field in the 5th inning against the LG Twins in Jamsil on the 26th became a problem. SSG, trailing 1-3, launched an offensive in the top of the 5th inning. With two walks and one hit, No. 4 Guillermo Heredia’s hit to left center tied the game 3-3. Kang-Min Kim strikes out with 1 out and 1st and 2nd base. And when Oh Tae-gon hit the 6th, a situation occurred.
On the full count, Oh Tae-gon’s batted ball hit the 7th fastball of LG relief pitcher Kim Jin-seong and lightly touched the first base line. The first base umpire declares a pair. However, the ball boy sitting in the outfield put his glove on to catch the ball that came out of the foul fence on the right. The ball hit the ball boy’s glove, and the first base referee who saw it immediately declared the ball dead.
Oh Tae-gon’s batted ball became an acknowledged double, and Heredia, the first base runner who had run all the way home, had to return to third base.
But at this time, the ball boy gestured. It was like a foul gesture or a pose like asking for a video review. He seemed to mean that it was a foul when he saw it.
Director Yeom Gyeong-yeop of LG immediately requested a video review. As a result of the reading, the pair were correct, and only Choi Jung-jeong, the second base runner, was recognized, and Park Seong-han was batting 7 times from 2nd and 3rd base.
Park Seong-han’s infield grounder hit third base runner Heredia home, making the score 5-3. The top of the 5th inning ended with No. 8 Kim Seong-Hyun being out on a fly to center field.
There is no telling what would have happened if the ball boy had left the ball unattended. However, it was wrong for the ball boy to try to catch the ball without properly observing the referee’s decision. The ball boy was replaced after the top of the fifth inning.
