Kim In-hwan (29, Hanwha) escaped serious injury after being hit by a head shot.

Kim In-hwan, who started as the No. 5 designated hitter in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League home game against KIA at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on Friday, was hit in the head in his first at-bat of the second inning.안전놀이터

Kim In-hwan, who collapsed in the batter’s box after the call, got up and walked to first base. He then continued to play the infield. Three consecutive singles by Oh Seon-jin, Lee Jin-young, and Park Sang-un loaded the bases.

KIA left-hander Lee Yi-ri’s 146-kilometer fastball slipped out of his hand and hit Kim In-hwan squarely in the helmet. Lee was ejected under the headshot rule, which is an automatic ejection when a fastball hits a batter in the head. It was the fourth headshot ejection of the season.

However, he was replaced by pinch-hitter Kwon Kwang-min in the third inning. He felt dizzy and went to a nearby hospital, where a CT scan showed nothing unusual.

Kim was batting 2-for-25 (104 at-bats) with two home runs, eight RBIs and a .641 OPS in 33 games this season.
