Bae Ji-hwan flew again… Super catch intercepting long hits

Center fielder’ Bae Ji-hwan once again showed amazing defense.

On the 14th (Korean time), Bae Ji-hwan showed a fantastic catch in the defense at the bottom of the 4th inning of an away game against the St. Louis Cardinals held at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.

In the situation of 2nd, 2nd and 3rd base, Tyler O’Neill hit a big ball in the left-middle direction.

According to ‘Baseball Savant’, it was a batted ball with an exit velocity of 101.2 mph, an exit angle of 29 degrees, and a distance of 395 feet. His expected batting average reached a whopping 0.620.

However, Bae Ji-hwan did not miss this. He calmly pursued the batted ball, jumped and caught it, and left his body to the fence.

He fell after hitting the fence hard,온라인카지노 but luckily got up right away, holding on to his teammate Connor Joe’s hand.

Responses were starkly mixed. Pittsburgh teammates, including pitcher Vince Velasquez, applauded his play, but Tyler O’Neal, who had stolen a long hit, was frustrated as he wrapped his head around him.

Bae Ji-hwan, who plays center fielder, second baseman, and shortstop, is showing great defense especially in the center field position, not his original position. In his last trip to Boston, he threw himself over the fence and turned a long hit into an out.

Pittsburgh’s official Twitter post posted a video of his play and wrote, “Bae Ji-hwan continues to do amazing things.”
