“Why are you looking at me? Did I look at you?”… Chief referee Kwon Young-cheol and Park Hae-min’s battle of words 

On the afternoon of the 20th, at the LG Dugout at the end of the 12th inning of the Hanwha-LG game extension of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul, referee Young-Cheol Kwon and Hye-Min Park had a war of words.

Park Hae-min started as a center fielder 9 times in the match against Hanwha. At the end of the 3rd inning, the first at-bat, he struck out on a 140km fastball, the 6th pitch of Hanwha starter Lee Tae-yang. After the strikeout, Park Hae-min stayed at bat as if regretting it. As he headed toward the dugout, he appealed to referee Kwon Young-chul for his regret.

In the 12th inning of overtime, lead batter Park Hae-min came to bat. Hanwha Jung Woo-ram’s low course 126k two-seam was declared a strike. Park Hae-min expressed regret by stepping out of the plate for a while as if he thought he was out of the strike zone.

And he hit the two-seam 125km two-seam, but with Chae Eun-seong’s super catch, he stepped back with a straight stroke to the first baseman. Heading to the dugout, Park Hae-min threw his helmet and expressed regret.체스카지노
