Referee Lee Young-jae, who made a mistake in admitting a goal by incorrectly applying the rules, was given a severe punishment of indefinite relegation to the Futures League.

The KBO will take disciplinary action, such as an indefinite demotion in the Futures League, a fine, and a warning, to the referee who acknowledged the score by incorrectly applying the game rules in the resignation kt-Lotte game on the 7th.

The KBO imposed an indefinite demotion from the 8th on Lee Young-jae (team leader), who was in charge of the second base referee, and a fine of 1 million won.

Referee Jang Joon-yeong, first base referee Kim Ik-soo, third base referee Kim Jeong-guk, and third base referee Yoon Sang-won, who resigned on this day, will each be fined 1 million won and warned.

In the early 4th inning, in a situation where KT Kim Sang-soo’s batted ball from 2nd base, 1st-3rd base was refracted after being hit by umpire Lee Young-jae, second base referee, baseball rule 5.06(c) Paragraph 6 ‘a fair ball that did not touch an infielder (including pitcher) is in the fair area If a fair ball is hit by a runner or an umpire, or if a fair ball that does not pass an infielder (other than the pitcher) is hit by an umpire, incorrectly applying the rule that ‘each runner who must clear the base by becoming a runner advances’ 3 Runner Jo Yong-ho acknowledged the goal. 스포츠토토

If the rule was applied, the situation where two companies should have been full made the wrong choice to be corrected to two companies and first and second bases after scoring was recognized.

Maybe this issue could have been covered up to the extent of happening.

It can be said that there was no strong protest from Lotte, the victim, and it was not an issue that caused public opinion to simmer.

However, a very strong punishment was imposed for this mistake.

It can be said that the KBO is strengthening its will to properly establish the principles.

There is also an analysis that the referees’ excuses after the game caused even greater anger.

Regarding the controversy over the misjudgment after the game, the referees said, “The misjudgment is correct. However, because Lotte did not protest, the goal was recognized.”

In the end, it can be seen that this excuse did not work. An atmosphere was created as if the responsibility was passed on to Lotte.

While acknowledging the misjudgment, the excuse that the score was recognized because there was no protest from Lotte felt like avoiding the umpire’s responsibility.

It was a mistake for Lotte not to protest, but basically the responsibility lay with the referees who misjudged. The remarks by such referees as if they were shifting responsibility to Lotte could be taken as an evasion of responsibility.

It is possible to interpret that the KBO’s intention to establish Young as abstract and the umpire’s excuses became the reason for heavy punishment.

It can also be said that it was a remark that could cause misunderstanding that he did not take the scoring by mistake seriously.

What matters is the future. In the future, something like this should not happen. Even if you make a mistake once again, you will have to admit it clearly and make an effort to correct the mistake.

That’s the only way to expect the effect of this heavy punishment.
