Umpire Yoon Sang-won, who was scheduled to officiate the game between the LG Twins and the NC Dinos at NC Park in Changwon on the 27th, did not show up at the stadium .The KBO said, “In consultation with the umpire committee, we have decided not to assign umpire Yoon Sang-won to the game on the 27th, and we will use another umpire in his place to play the game as a ‘five-man’ team.” Yoon was the second base umpire in the LG-NC game on the 26th.In the bottom of the ninth inning with LG leading 5-3, NC’s Park Gun-woo hit an infield grounder that umpire Yoon Sang-won tried to avoid, but it slightly touched the sole of his foot .KBO Baseball Rule 5.06 states that ”If a fair ball that does not touch an infielder (including the pitcher) is hit by a runner or an umpire in fair territory, or if a fair ball that does not pass an infielder (excluding the pitcher) is hit by an umpire – each runner who must clear a base by becoming a runner advances. This means that a hit that touches the umpire’s body is an ‘infield hit’.NC won the game 7-5 with a three-run home run by Kwon Hee-dong .Some LG fans expressed outrage, with some posting inappropriate comments that threatened “terrorism. In response, the KBO and the umpire committee decided to remove umpire Yoon Sang-won from the game on Sunday .Police were also dispatched to Changwon NC Park to prepare for any possible incidents. 스포츠토토존
