19-year-old rookie of ‘Future’s Home Run 1’, fell down after being hit by a 146km fastball… Left-handed hit ‘dazzling injury’
LG’s rookie hitter Kim Beom-seok was hit by a pitch and almost suffered a major injury.
Kim Beom-seok started as the designated hitter number 4 in the Futures League match against KT 2nd team held at LG Champions Park in Icheon on the 20th.
Kim Beom-seok, who had hit a 130-meter home run the previous day, struck out on a swing by opponent starter Kim Min’s breaking ball in the first at-bat in the second inning. He was hit by a huge curveball.
In the 4th inning, LG trailed 0-6, Lee Joo-hyeong made up for one point with a solo home run that went over the left fence. Kim Beom-seok, who entered the plate, went on base with a ball that hit the body on the second pitch against Kim Min. As Kim Min’s curve fell into his hand, it headed toward Kim Bum-seok’s body, grazed his left hand and hit his torso.
Kim Beom-seok came out as the lead batter in the 6th inning and faced sidearm Kim Jeong-woon. The second fastball from the first ball headed toward Kim Bum-seok’s body, and fell down after being hit by his left hand. He tried to swing, but stopped and avoided it, but was hit hard on the left blade by a 146km fastball and collapsed.
The collapsed Kim Beom-seok complained of pain, and the trainer came out and sent a replacement sign to the bench. Fortunately, Kim Beom-seok, who got up after a while as if he was not seriously injured, walked to first base and was replaced by runner Um Tae-gyeong.메이저사이트
