El, Ki, Du, and anyone else’s request for a solo read should be excluded from the number of times…Then I could have corrected the mistake of Heredia

It was a controversial scene overnight. It was Munhak Stadium game yesterday (11th). It was the bottom of the ninth inning between the Tigers and the Landers. With runners on the first and second bases with two outs, Lee Ji-young took the batter’s box. She reacts at the third pitch with the count 0-2. It was a hit to the left field.룸알바

The runner turns to the third base and heads home. The left-field throw has also arrived. Guillermo Heredia’s hand and Han Jun-su’s mitts are in a close race. It’s truly the time to bang. Ham Ji-woong’s conclusion was out. Pointing at the home plate with his hand, he sends a firm signal that “it didn’t touch.”

This is the moment when the finishing victory disappears. The home team dugout is devastated. The same goes for the cheering section. They look like they are saying, “Isn’t it a safety?” However, there is no other way. They are full of expressions of losing their country.

The truth is, however, that he is not hiding. He came out soon. The broadcast screen (KBS N Sports) will be played soon. It can be checked at a slow speed. The runner’s fingertips clearly sweep through the vertexes of the pentagon. Of course, the catcher’s mitts were beyond reach.

Heredia jumps up and down. He looks at the dugout and complains of injustice. However, he is helpless. He has used up all the video replays. Requests are limited to two per team. Landers already used them in defense in the second and ninth innings.

Article 28 of the KBO regulations is about video reading. Five of them are about opportunities. This is how 5-1 describes it.

‘The opportunity shall be two per club on a regular innings basis, and if the referee’s decision is overturned on both occasions by video review in the regular innings, the club shall be given one additional opportunity. In extra time only, one additional opportunity will be given per club.’

This was finally revised on January 28, 2021. In the meantime, the number of revisions was made four times in the two and a half years. The problem of frequency is proof that there were too many words. To summarize the current regulations, it is like this. ‘You can request up to three times.’ However, in order to do so, both of the previous two trials must be reversed.

Today’s story is an intellectual and counterargument to this part. The question is, why do you limit the number of times to a maximum of three times.

Video reading is a process of correcting wrong decisions. It is a natural, basic right. Therefore, it should be guaranteed as much as possible. That is the purpose and principle of this regulation.

Let’s say the original trial was overturned. That means a misjudgment has been made. If so, the person who raised the objection should not lose money. However, the current regulations are not. One application number disappears. If you succeed in both times, you will only have one more chance.

In other words, it is argued that reversed readings, so those recognized as misjudgment, should be excluded from the number of times. In other words, it makes sense to be reset completely.

Applying this logic, the game will change yesterday (11th). For now, Landers’ request for the second reading failed. Kim’s safe second base in the top of the ninth inning was maintained at the lower court. On the other hand, the first request was successful. Kim’s attempt to move to the third base was reversed in the top of the second inning. The objection was corrected to “out.”

If it wasn’t for the wrong original, SSG had no reason to consume video review. Then there’s still the No. 1 right. And I could have written it to Herredia in the bottom of the ninth inning. (Of course, it’s a hypothetical argument.)

There must be a reason for limiting the number of video readings. It is understood that it is an overuse of reading requests, minimal authority over referee decisions, and shortening game time.

But the most important essence exists. It is fair judgment and the application of fair rules. If there is a setback here, no one respects the game. Misjudgment must be corrected. The source of wrong outcomes must be eliminated. There can be no principle or regulation that takes precedence.

A single video review takes up to three minutes. It’s never a boring, disconcerting time. To prevent irrationality and injustice, it’s just the most necessary process to get a result that everyone can understand.
