Ahn Chi-hong (Lotte Giants), who was hit on the thumb by a ball, went to the hospital for an X-ray examination.
An Chi-hong started as the designated hitter number 5 in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the Samsung Lions held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 15th.
An Chi Hong walked on base in his first at-bat. He followed this up with a two-run timely hit in his second at-bat. In the third at-bat, he withdrew with a double hit, and in the fourth at-bat in the 7th inning, he succeeded in a sacrifice bunt, creating opportunities for 1 out and 2nd and 3rd base. Afterwards, Lotte added points with Kim Min-seok’s two RBIs and timely hits.메이저놀이터
An Chi-hong came out in the fifth at-bat in the beginning of the 9th inning without a runner. In the 1B2S situation, Choi Choong-yeon’s 142km/h four-seam fastball headed towards An Chi-hong’s body. The ball hit An Chi-hong’s right thumb, who was still holding the bat.
An Chi-hong immediately collapsed and complained of pain. In the end, he signed a replacement for Dugout, and Jung Hoon, the main runner, was put in.
An official from Lotte said, “An Chi-hong was hit by a ball on his right thumb. He will be taken to Gyeongsan Semyung Hospital for X-rays.”
