Kim Do-young, who played the first batter in the top of the 10th inning with no outs and runners on first and second bases when the game was tied 2-2, was driven by an unfavorable ball count of 0B2S due to bunt failure and strike misjudgment. The third pitch came into contact with a grounder to shortstop.

He sprinted to first base to prevent double play. a ball thrown to first base after going through second base. In a hurry, I carried out the headfirst sliding. The first base judge is out. Immediately after sliding, Kim Do-young looked at the bench and asked for a video read, then held his left hand. While sliding from a short distance, the shock was delivered to the left hand that touched the first base. The video was read, but the original trial was not reversed, and Kim Do-young headed to the bench with her head down.

Kim Do-young injured his ankle during a home rush against SSG in Incheon on April 2, the second game of the opening game of the 2023 KBO League. The examination revealed a fracture of the left metatarsal bone. It has been diagnosed that recovery takes up to four months. It was unclear whether he would return to the second half as well as the first half.

However, Kim Do-young returned to the first team in late June after a remarkable recovery and bleeding rehabilitation. He hit .333 (103 hits in 340 at-bats) with seven home runs and 47 RBIs in 84 games, and an OPS (on-base plus slugging) of 0.824. He had a two-month hiatus due to the injury, and he exploded his potential by surpassing 100 hits even though he did not meet the regular at-bats. It’s time to recover from an injury and prepare for next year’s perfect season. As the injury broke out again, concerns are growing about next season’s preparation.

Most of the first-base headfirst sliding of the batter is a play in which the bench dries up. I understand the other’s desperate feelings, but it is not faster and there is a great risk of injury above all else. In the past, Kim Dong-ju also suffered a major injury to his shoulder while sliding headfirst at first base in international competitions, ruining a whole season.

Of course, Kim Do-young couldn’t help but know this. But the body reacted before the head. That’s how desperate he was for victory.

Ryu Joong-il led 3-2 with a timely hit by Yoon Dong-hee, who came out of third base with two outs after Kim Do-young’s double play, but ended up being the runner-up with a 3-4 come-from-behind loss as he got a walk-off hit following a tie in the bottom of the 10th inning. It was a bolt out of the blue that led to a bitter defeat for Kim Do-young.
