Kiwoom director Hong Won-ki was ejected after protesting the video review results

Kiwoom Heroes director Hong Won-ki was ejected for protesting the video decision.

Coach Hong was ejected during an attack at the bottom of the 7th스포츠토토 inning in a home game against Doosan Bears in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 23rd.

The situation was this. Kiwoom succeeded in attacking the changed pitcher Lee Young-ha at the end of the 7th inning, and took a chance with no bases loaded.

Afterwards, Lim Ji-yeol, who was at bat, hit the third baseman ground ball, and third baseman Heo Gyeong-min, who caught the ball, immediately threw it to catcher Yang Eui-ji, forcing the runner on third base to force out.

Yang Eui-ji, who blocked the run, immediately threw the ball to the first baseman, and the throw hit the back of batter runner Lim Ji-yeol and bounced. In the meantime, second base runner Hyung-Jong Lee stepped on the groove.

Then, Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop requested a video reading of Ji-yeol Lim’s 3-foot defensive interference, and as a result of the reading, the referees judged that Ji-yeol Lim violated the 3-foot rule and did not recognize Kiwoom’s score. The safe and full base quickly changed to 2 out, 1st and 2nd base.

When the reading result came out, this time coach Hong came out to the ground and protested vigorously for four minutes, but the decision was not overturned. According to the rule that if you protest the results of the video review, you will be ejected, and director Hong was ejected. Kiwoom finished the inning without scoring as the follow-up hitter Kim Hye-seong retired with a fly to left field.
