Ryu Ji-hyuk, who slipped during defense, replaced without being able to play a single at-bat…”No plans for a hospital checkup”
Ryu Ji-hyuk started as the fifth batter and first baseman in Game 12 of the season against the LG Twins in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 6th.
Ryu Ji-hyuk, who was playing the first base defense, slipped and fell while trying to catch Oh Ji-hwan’s ground ball in the top of the first inning with two outs and runners on first and second base. The inning ended when second baseman Kim Dong-jin, who came in from behind, sprayed the ball to first base, but Ryu Ji-hyuk felt uncomfortable in the process of falling. In the end, Kim Tae-hoon was put in as a pinch hitter in Ryu Ji-hyuk’s at-bat with two outs and runners on first and second base in the bottom of the first inning. 스포츠토토
It’s not a serious injury. A replacement was made to protect players. An official from the Samsung club said, “I think Ryu Ji-hyuk was surprised as he slipped during the defense process. “There is no hospital examination plan,” he explained Ryu Ji-hyuk’s physical condition.
