Koo Seung-min (Lotte Giants) was ejected due to the ‘headshot rule’.
On the 16th, Koo Seung-min took the mound in the 8th inning of an away game against the Hanwha Eagles held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park.
Starter Charlie Barnes kept the ball scoreless until the 7th inning, and in the 8th, lead batter Oh Seon-jin hit a double.
Lotte replaced the pitcher with Koo Seung-min. Hanwha replaced O’Grady with Park Jung-hyun as a substitute.
Park Jung-hyun tried to bunt the first pitch slider, but failed as it was a foul. The second pitch turned into a ball, and I tried bunt again on the third pitch. However, his fastball went to his head and hit the front of Park Jung-hyun’s helmet.
As a result of going through the video review, it was eventually confirmed that the ball hit the body with a fastball, and in the end, Seung-min Koo was ejected according to the rules. 먹튀검증
