Kia Tigers manager Kim Jong-kook was ejected for the second time this season for a video review appeal.

It was the opposite of his first ejection.

It was the final game of the first half against Samsung at Champions Field in Gwangju on March 13. The score was 0-0 in the top of the third inning.

Pirela hit a hard hit ball that rolled slowly down the first base line. Pitcher Yang Hyun-jong made a quick catch. The runner, Pirela, was running inside the line. To avoid this, Yang’s throw was deflected toward second base. First baseman Choi Won-jun reached for it, but it was out of reach. The ball ended up going to the backup second baseman. The runner was safe, and Kim Sung-yoon, the first baseman, took advantage and advanced to third.

KIA immediately requested a video review.

The review took longer than expected. With less than 30 seconds left, the call was safe.

The umpires explained, “Although the runner did run toward the fair side, it was judged to be a missed throw from the beginning, so we declared a save.” KIA coach Kim Jong-guk rushed off the bench. He protested vigorously. According to the automatic ejection rule for video review protests, Kim was ejected.

27 days ago, 3-foot defensive interference VR call overturned → The nightmare begins

KIA has a video review nightmare when it comes to the 3-foot line obstruction rule.

Manager Kim Jong-kook received his first ejection of the season after appealing the call in the Gwangju NC on March 16.

Trailing 9-10 in the fifth inning, with runners on first and second with no outs, Ryu Jin-wook was caught off-balance while handling a grounder to third base by Shin Beom-soo. The score was tied at 10-10. Video review requested by NC. Shin Beom-soo was called out for defensive interference by running inside the 3-foot line. The run was disallowed and the runner had to return to his original position.

It was very unfair for KIA, who lost both the original call and this one.

The controversial phrase “if the umpire deems it appropriate,” a time difference that only favored KIA

Rule 5.09 of the Baseball Rules of Order states, “A runner is out if the umpire determines that the runner has interfered with a fielder by stepping outside the three-foot line inside or outside the foul line while running the second half of the base between home plate and first base.

In this case, Ryu Jin-wook caught the ball on the third base side, slipped while trying to throw to third base, and then threw to first base late, causing the ball to become a bad throw and hit the runner. It’s hard to argue that the throw was interfered with by the runner running inside the line.

Even the bunt, which should have been successful, failed due to a three-foot interference call.

The purpose of the 3-foot defensive obstruction is to prevent passing.

In this case, it was the exact opposite.

Yang even caught the ball on the first base line. Pirela was running inside the foul line.

In order to throw to the first baseman to avoid the runner, he had to make a skewed throw toward second base. However, the throw was too far out of the first baseman’s reach. That’s why it was “judged” as a miss before the interference. If Yang’s throw had hit Pirela, he would have been called out for defensive interference. The purpose of the three-pitch interference rule is to prevent intentional interference. In a hurry, a runner might intentionally run inside.

In the opposite case, the final call was against the KIA on both occasions.

In this case, the first call was much more unfair. The referee has the final say on whether or not a defensive interference is a violation of the 3-foot line. However, in the first case, it’s hard to argue that it was a defensive interference. The angle of the shot made it hard to make that call.토토사이트

▶Two 3-foot VR readings that only KIA could make, and the ejection was inevitable

Coach Kim Jong-guk, who remembered the frustration, had no choice but to jump out regardless of whether he was ejected or not.

Two more video calls on the 3-foot line turned out to be a nightmare for KIA.

Another unfair call. After being able to end the inning, KIA gave up the lead on a fastball from the catcher at first and third base. In the fourth inning, they gave up a two-run homer to Kim Jae-sung and lost 1-4. This ended their six-game winning streak dating back to the SSG game on the 5th. It was a disappointing result for KIA, who wanted to end the first half with seven straight wins.
