SSG Landers veteran outfielder Hanyu-seom was hit by a dizzying sand dune during the game and was replaced.
On the 26th, in the 2023 Shinhan Bank 메이저놀이터 SOL KBO League Doosan Bears and team 10 game held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul, Hanyu Island started as the designated hitter 6 times and recorded 1 hit, 1 walk and 1 ball in 1 at-bat.
Hanyu Island entered the first at-bat at the top of the second inning when the team faced off 0-0. Against Doosan starting pitcher right-hander Young-gun Kim Min-gyu, he picked a walk and went on base, connecting the chance to 1st and 2nd base safely to the bottom line.
In the second at-bat, he retired with a beom-ta. At the beginning of the 3rd inning, with SSG leading 2-0, the center fielder stopped at 2nd base with 2nd base, and turned to dugout.
In the third at-bat, he almost suffered a serious injury. In the top of the 5th inning, with SSG leading 2-1, with one out and bases loaded, Doosan left-hander Lee Byung-hun, a pitcher who changed, was hit by a sand dune and collapsed.
In the full count, Lee Byung-hun’s sixth pitch, a 147km fastball, hit Hanyu-seom’s right shoulder. Hanyu Island complained of pain and could not stand up easily.
The SSG coaching staff and medical staff, who rushed out to check the condition of Hanyu Island, sent a replacement signal to the dugout on the third base side. Kim Kang-min, who was waiting on the bench as the first base runner, was put in.
At the moment when everyone watching the game held their breath and hoped that Hanyu Island was not seriously injured, Hanyu Island returned to the dugout on the 3rd base side fortunately without assistance.
Doosan’s Lee Byung-hun also apologized while standing near the home plate until Hanyu Island stood up. Hanyu Island also encouraged Lee Byung-hun by making an okay gesture.
The SSG club said, “Hanyu Island was hit by a sand dune and was replaced to protect the player. After checking the player’s condition, a hospital checkup is scheduled.”
Hanyu Island had a batting average of 0.202 (45 hits in 223 bats), 4 home runs, 27 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.572 in 75 games this season before the game. Overcoming the sluggishness in the first half, the batting average of 0.344 (11 hits in 32 at-bats), 2 homers and 5 RBIs in the last 10 games was reviving the sense of hitting.
In the top of the 7th inning, with SSG’s attack underway, SSG is leading 3-2.
