KT Wiz foreign hitter Anthony Alford was replaced during the game.
Alford started as the left fielder for the 3rd batter in an away game against the Doosan Bears in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 17th, and was replaced by outfielder Song Min-seop at the end of the 5th inning defense.메이저놀이터
On this day, Alford showed off a pleasant hitting feeling until the replacement. He walked in the first at-bat in the first inning and scored on Seong-Woo Jang’s home run.
Alford, who completed a multi-hit with an RBI in the third at-bat in the 5th inning safely from first base, scored the third run by hitting home with Jang Seong-woo’s consecutive hits. However, he was suddenly replaced with the start of the bottom of the 5th, leaving questions.
A KT official explained the reason, “Alford felt uncomfortable in the right hamstring during the game in the beginning of the 5th inning, so he was replaced to protect the player.”
As Song Min-seop, who was replaced with Alford, went into right field, Kim Min-hyeok, who was the previous right fielder, moved to left field without Alford.
