Shinsegae Vice Chairman Chung Yong-jin and owner of SSG Landers visited KBO in person. 토토사이트 I had a 30-minute meeting with President Koo Hyung-yeon. Chung Yong-jin, the owner of the team, visited the baseball center located in Dogok-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul on the morning of the 22nd. It is for meeting with President Heo Gu-yeon.
SSG had a controversy over the referee’s decision during an attack in the bottom of the eighth inning against the Incheon LG Twins on the 21st, a day earlier. In Park Sung-han’s at-bat with the bases loaded with one out, first base umpire Woo Hyo-dong declared a ball-dead rather than a foul/fair, causing a setback in the proceedings of the game. Since then, the problem has grown as the judges have made a video review of more than 10 minutes, resulting in checking fair hits, Han Yu-seom is out. Director Kim Won-hyung was forced to leave after protesting the results for more than 10 minutes at the time due to protest related to video review.
Regarding the situation at the time through KBO, the referee committee said, “The ball passed through the glove of the first baseman and declared a fair, and it became an in-play situation as it was later hit by a referee. The video reading center explained that the ball was hit by the referee and the play stopped, but even if the referee declared the fair right away, Han Yu-seom thought he would not have made it to second base, so he took out, but it was not easy to understand. There was no movement of LG defenders, and the next step was not taken at all due to the first base referee’s declaration of the ball-dead, because it was an explanation that concluded the out of Han Yu-seom, who returned to first base.
In the end, KBO issued a disciplinary action against referee Woo Hyo-dong on the morning of the 22nd, suspending the rest of this season’s games. KBO confirmed the disciplinary action of referee Woo Hyo-dong after discussions early in the morning, and the meeting between owner Chung Yong-jin and president Heo Gu-yeon has since taken place.
Chung Yong-jin, the owner of the team, met with President Heo Gu-yeon and had in-depth conversations on various pending issues, including the recent decision issue. The game can be won or lost, said Chung Yong-jin, who responded to a short on-site interview with reporters after the meeting with the president. I also know that the decision and the result are not different. But the rules must be fair. The reason why the players play with all their might and the fans cheer up is because of the premise that the game is fair, he said. I came to ask you to have a sense of duty for people like me whose day depends on baseball. I’ve had enough conversations with the president, he replied.
It is not common for owners to visit KBO in person. Owner Jung Yong-jin said, I couldn’t sleep easily after yesterday’s game. Owner Chung said, There may be enough misjudgment in baseball, but such a misjudgment disappointed our SSG fans and the morale of our coaches and our players fell to the ground. I couldn’t see Han Yu Island’s face. I felt sorry to see our players’ faces, so I thought I should come in person. In this regard, the club should be active. That’s what the club will do for the players, he stressed.
Owner Jung Yong-jin also said, A ball changes the lives of the players. I came to ask KBO to give me a sense of duty, not just for our club, but for the players who risk their lives on each ball, he added.
