“Hey! Come here.” Hanwha-KT bench-clearing anger explodes. Why? In the end, director Kim Kyung-moon stepped up and said, “I’ll teach you more.”

Hanwha Eagles, who have won two consecutive games since Kim Kyung-moon’s appointment, collided with KT Wiz players after the game, causing bench clearing.

Hanwha scored seven points in the eighth inning of the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League away game against KT Wiz at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 5th, winning a 12-2 victory. 퀸알바

The winning pitcher posted 26 wins, 32 losses and one draw, downgrading the KT to eighth and jumping to seventh place. In contrast, the KT lost its second consecutive game with 26 wins, 33 losses and one draw. The Hanwha Eagles will now seek to sweep the series at the game on Tuesday. The starting pitcher for the Hanwha Eagles is Ryu Hyun-jin. Having lost its second consecutive game, the KT will seek to counterattack. The starting pitcher for the KT is Um Sang-baek.
However, after the game, the players of the two teams collided on the ground. Hanwha and KT players seemed to come out to greet each other to the fans, but suddenly they got tangled and bench-clearing took place.

Veteran infielder Hwang Jae-gyun (37) of KT asked Park Sang-won (30) of the Hanwha Eagles team, “Hey! Come here.” In the process, players from the two teams got tangled up and collided. Jang Seong-woo (34) and Hwang Jae-gyun were also seen rushing towards Park Sang-won as he could not calm down easily. However, the collision did not spread to a bigger extent amid restrictions from Hanwha players and their teammates.

The two teams played without any special war of nerves. Choi Jae-hoon, the home manager of the Hanwha Eagles, was hit by a hit ball in consecutive at-bats in the top of the fifth inning and the top of the seventh inning, creating a dizzying situation. However, he did not express enough discomfort to go all the way to bench-clearing.

The problem was the scene of Hanwha’s relief pitcher Park Sang-won’s ceremony, which came out of KT’s offense in the bottom of the eighth inning of the game. Park performed a rather radical ceremony while striking out the first batter Kim Sang-soo and the follow-up Rojas. On the mound, Park showed a loud roar by hitting his right hand and glove, which he pitched whenever he struck out. However, with the score gap already wide by 10 points, Park’s ceremony stimulated KT players’ emotions.

After the game, a Hanwha official said about the bench-clearing situation, “Park Sang-won was displeased with KT’s bench with a ceremony after catching an out, and veterans such as Ryu Hyun-jin expressed their apologies.” After the end of the game, bench-clearing occurred while the KT player called Park Sang-won separately. On the broadcast screen, Jang Sung-woo was captured in the dugout as he couldn’t stand his anger ahead of Hanwha’s attack in the top of the ninth inning. Ryu Hyun-jin was seen tapping his chest and raising one hand to express his sorry.

Bench clearing continued for more than two minutes. Fortunately, this did not lead to any more serious incident as coaches and veterans of the two teams, including Ryu Hyun-jin and Park Kyung-soo, came forward. In the end, coaches of the two teams stepped forward. Coach Kim Kyung-moon and Lee Kang-chul shook hands on the ground, approached the home plate where the players were tangled, and comforted the players. Then, the players bowed to the first and third bases where their fans were, and left the ground.

After the game, Hanwha manager Kim Kyung-moon also delivered the message in person. “While playing baseball, you have to learn what you have to learn,” Kim said. “I will teach you more about unpleasant things after the game.”
