‘147km fastball to the shoulder’ Han Yoo-seom’s helmet came off…first to a surprised Lee Byung-hun

SSG Landers’ Han Yoo-seom was surprised by a dune that hit his helmet.

The SSG Landers outfielder had to wipe off a sand dune that hit him in the chest after starting as the No. 6 designated hitter against the Doosan Bears in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ at Jamsil Baseball Stadium on Saturday. Han came to bat with the bases loaded in the top of the fifth inning and fought a full count before being hit in the shoulder by a 147-kilometer-per-hour fastball from Doosan pitcher Lee Byung-hun. The ball hit him so close to the head that his helmet came off, and everyone in the stadium gathered around him as he collapsed to the ground. The medical staff on the field immediately rushed over with a stretcher.메이저사이트

The most surprised was the pitcher, Lee Byung-heon. There was no intention. Lee was having a bad day, throwing 43 pitches in 1 ⅔ innings, striking out four and walking five. He immediately approached Hanyusum to check on him and apologized as he picked himself up and walked into the dugout.

Even in a situation where he could have been angry, Hanyusum did not show his emotions and looked out for his juniors who were surprised. She approached and patted the apologetic Lee Byung Hun on the back, signaling that it was okay.

As soon as the dust settled, Doosan switched from Lee to Lee Young-ha on the mound. Lee was still warming up in the bullpen to face the next batter after Han Yoo-seom. Han Yoo-seom was also replaced by pinch-hitter Kim Kang-min.

The umpires took the microphone and explained the situation, saying, “Han Yoo-seom was hit in the head after the ball hit his shoulder (head shot), so he was not ejected but was replaced by the pitcher.”

Han is currently being monitored for any abnormalities in his body. An SSG official said, “He was replaced to protect the player. After checking his condition, he will be examined at a hospital.”
