Choi’s pitch was hit into fair territory. The umpire then showed a foul call, then a fair call, and Choi was called out at the plate.

KIA lost 3-10 at home against KT Wiz in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Gwangju-Kia Champions Field on Wednesday afternoon. The loss was the third in a row for KIA, which now has a record of 28 wins, 1 loss and 34 draws.

Kia started Hwang Dong-ha in place of Yoon Young-chul, who was given the day off. Hwang Dong-ha gave up three runs in two innings and Yoon Jung-hyun, who pitched in long relief, added a run, giving KIA a 1-4 lead in the top of the fourth inning.

KIA needed to find a way to fight back. The bottom of the fourth inning was the right time, starting with Choi Hyung-woo, the No. 4 hitter. Choi took advantage of a two-pitch cutter from opposing starter William Cuevas and hit a grounder to the first baseman.

The ball rolled toward first base with no force. If it hit Choi’s body, it was a foul, and if it didn’t, it was fair. The umpire initially showed the foul call with his arms open. Choi then stopped at the plate, and Cuevas stood and watched the umpire.

The umpire again called an in-play pitch with his left arm. Cuevas caught the ball and threw to first base, and the first base umpire called the out. Choi Hyung-woo was out because the umpire’s call was inconsistent.

KIA manager Kim Jong-kook approached the umpire and protested the call for a long time. However, the result didn’t change. Only after a long time, the umpires explained to the fans that the ball did not hit Choi Hyung-woo’s body and fell in fair territory, so he was out.

However, many fans at the Gwangju-Kia Champions Field booed the umpires. 안전놀이터 The essence of the incident was the umpire’s erratic call. After the bad call, KIA lost momentum and gave up four more runs in the top of the fifth inning.
