“I can’t play passively…” Director Lee Seung-yeop, who is heartbroken over Kim In-tae’s 4-week departure
Doosan Bears manager Lee Seung-yeop regretted the injury of outfielder Kim In-tae.
In the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League KIA Tigers game held at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju on the 7th, Kim In-tae bunted in the top of the 5th inning and rushed to second base while the preceding runner was out, and bumped into infielder Ryu Ji-hyeok메이저사이트, who was trying to tag.
Kim In-tae, who was taken to the hospital in an ambulance, moved to Seoul on the 8th and received a detailed examination. An MRI scan revealed that he had dislocated his shoulder and will need four weeks to recover. Kim In-tae was dropped from the first-team entry ahead of the game on the 8th. In his place, outfielder Song Seung-hwan was registered.
Regarding Kim In-tae’s injury ahead of the KIA game on the 8th, Lee said, “My heart hurts so much. No one can blame injuries that occur during the game while the players are working hard. It’s a lot of players. It’s an important position whether it’s going out or not, and it hurts that I’m going to leave for a while, but I’ll support you so that you can recover quickly.”
Even after Kim In-tae was injured at second base and replaced, Doosan batters played every opportunity. In the beginning of the 8th inning, Jo Soo-haeng dug into second base due to an error in check, and Kang Seung-ho stepped on first base on a grounder from third baseman. In the meantime, Jo Soo-haeng rushed to the home.
Looking at the players’ play without sacrificing their bodies, Lee said, “It is natural for players to play hard when they hit a ground ball or when a batted ball hits the body and deflects. “he said.
Coach Lee continued, “Especially at first base, there is a risk of injury if you have to be patient. But I can’t tell you not to work hard. There is a greater risk of injury if you play as “.”
In this year’s KBO League, even before the opening 10 games, each team is suffering from injuries. There are a number of teams where foreign players have left, and there are many places where key resources such as starting pitchers and shortstops are missing. That is why the mind of the coaches watching the hustle play of the players is toxic.
