Heo Kyung-min angered by sand dunes, not empty balls… Yoon Dae-kyung calls to apologize “Ball not in play, sorry”
Hanwha pitcher Yoon Dae-kyung (29) was removed from the first division entry ahead of the match against Doosan in Daejeon on the 2nd. He recovered from shoulder pain and returned to the first division in mid-June, but had a hard time finding a good pitching balance at the beginning of the season. He was transferred to the second division in terms of reorganization, but he received undesirable attention in line with the sand dunes from the game the day before.
In the match against Doosan on the 1st,메이저사이트 Yoon Dae-kyung appeared as a relief pitcher in the eighth inning when the score was 1-7. One ball thrown to the next batter Huh Kyung-min (33) after being hit by the first batter Jung Soo-bin with an RBI triple that went over the height of the left fielder became controversial. The 140km fastball on the first pitch became a sand dune that went deep behind Huh Kyung-min’s back.
At that moment, Heo Kyung-min was furious. He put down his bat and shouted at Yoon Dae-kyung as he headed toward the mound. It was suspected of being an empty ball. Yoon Dae-kyung took off his hat and raised his hand to make a gesture that it was not intentional, but Huh Kyung-min could not easily calm his anger, and players from both teams flocked to the ground due to bench clearing.
As Hanwha catcher Choi Jae-hoon, who played for Doosan, Jang Min-jae, who is close to the same age, and Hanwha captain Jung Woo-ram calmed Huh Kyung-min, the bench clearing situation was quickly settled without any major clashes.
Heo Kyung-min, who usually has a reputation as a player who does not express much emotion on the ground and is silently sincere, made headlines. Doubts about the empty ball grew because it was Huh Kyung-min, not any other player. It was also suspicious in the circumstances because it came out after Doosan tilted the game by making six runs and big innings in the game was tilted.
In conclusion, it was not an empty ball. After the match, Yoon Dae-kyung called Huh Kyung-min directly and apologized, saying, “I’m sorry,” resolving the misunderstanding. Yoon Dae-kyung said, “I didn’t get it right on purpose. These days, the balance has been bad, so the control of the ball has not been at its disposal. “I wanted to finish the inning quickly, but the ball flew to the batter, so I was very embarrassed,” he said.
Hanwha manager Choi Won-ho said, “Because Dae-kyung is a pitcher with good control, the opposing team could have misunderstood (empty ball) enough.” However, not only did Daekyung get it right yesterday, but she has not been able to control it as a whole recently. It wasn’t even a situation where I was supposed to guess. He also showed a gesture of surprise after throwing the ball,” he explained.
Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop said, “It was a ball that Heo Kyung-min could get angry enough because he was hit in the right shoulder, not the left shoulder. If you come above the chest, the batter is very dangerous. If you get hit that way, the aftereffects last a long time. “I think I was excited momentarily to defend in that area,” he said. “It can always happen during the game.” “I want to believe that the opponent didn’t throw it on purpose,” he said.
Meanwhile, Yoon Dae-kyung will go through a readjustment process in the Futures League for the time being. Head coach Choi Won-ho said, “The ball continued to be bad after coming up after shoulder rehabilitation. In a way, I was a little lucky by throwing it constantly, but now I think I need to restore my ball power, refine my ball control, and maintain it, so I sent it to the second division,” he said.
Yoon Dae-kyung’s performance this season is 29 games (32 innings), 2 wins, 2 holds, ERA 1.97 strikeouts and 17 strikeouts. He started the season as a chasing group and increased his weight close to the must-win group, but his shoulder pain was put on hold at the end of May. After two weeks of rehabilitation, he returned to the first division in mid-June and recorded a 3.38 ERA in 10 games. In 10⅔3 innings, his ball control was shaken with five walks and two walks. /
