In the Professional Baseball Futures League (2nd team), suspicions of ‘making a batting king’ were raised. It is said that Sangmu, the strongest team in the 2nd team, deliberately asked the opposing team KIA to give him a hit in the match on the 8th and 9th to make Seo Ho-cheol (25, NC) the batting champion of the southern league. Ho-cheol Seo, who hit one bunt in both games, was ranked as the batting champion with a batting average of 0.388, beating Lotte Kim Joo-hyeon (0.386).
The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO), which received a related report on the 13th, requested that Sangmu and KIA submit a report. As soon as the two teams submit the police report, the KBO plans to check the facts by comparing them with their own reports prepared by the game management and scorers who were at the scene at the time. KIA denies the allegations, saying it is “a nonsensical claim.” A KBO official said, “Without limiting the scope, we will investigate all involved.”
