Doosan Bears pitcher Kim Kang-ryul was ejected for a head shot. NC Seo Ho-cheol was taken to the hospital.
NC Seo Ho-cheol recorded a multi-hit game, including a leadoff solo shot, against the NC Dinos at Changwon NC Park on April 24. Trailing 2-3 in the bottom of the eighth inning, Seo stepped to the plate for the fourth time with one out. However, he was hit in the helmet by a 145-kilometer fastball from Doosan pitcher Kim Kang-ryul.캡틴토토
The impact was enough to knock his helmet off. Seo was hit on the face shield side of his helmet, which caused him to bleed from the nose. Once he was able to stand up, he helped himself to an ambulance. Kim Kang-ryul, who threw the headshot, was automatically ejected.
“He will be taken to Samsung Changwon Hospital near the stadium for a thorough examination,” the NC said.
Doosan sent Hong Gun-hee to the mound after Kim Kang-ryul, and NC capitalized on the opportunity to tie the game at 3-3.
