The new stealer of the Home Run Race, held as a pre-event to the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL All-Star Game, is undoubtedly Jung Soo-bin (Doosan).
Jung did not participate in the home run race. Instead, he pitched batted balls for Noh Si-hwan (Hanwha) and Han Dong-hee (Lotte). However, the KBO’s top hitters were unable to hit a single home run as they were shut out by Jung Soo-bin. “I became an ace when I was sleepy,” he laughed.
The new stealer of the All-Star Game at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 15th was even more obvious. It was Samsung’s ace, David Buchanan.
The title of ace is not enough; he is the All-Star Game’s exclusive ‘Idoryu’.바카라사이트
Buchanan, who participated as a Dream All-Star, made a surprise appearance in right field during the Nanum All-Stars’ attack in the bottom of the eighth inning.
After standing still in the outfield until the second inning, Buchanan had a chance to show off his defence. Oh hit a ball high towards the right field fence. Buchanan calmly chased down the ball and made a solid catch. The crowd erupted in applause.
The highlight came in the Dream All-Stars’ final at-bat in the top of the ninth inning.
Down 1-8, the Dream All-Stars scored one run in the top of the ninth. With two outs and Kim Min-seok at the plate, the Nanum All-Stars drew an intentional walk. This was to set up the next batter, Buchanan.
But Buchanan was no Ido-ryu. Against LG’s closer Ko Woo-seok, he got a lucky hit that landed in front of the centre fielder.
With that, Buchanan became the only Samsung player to record a hit in the All-Star Game, joining Koo Ja-rook, Jose Pirela, and Kim Hyun-jun.
Buchanan was consistent throughout the game. He served as the third base coach for the Dream All-Stars’ offence and entertained fans with his trademark sense of humour at every opportunity.
When Austin Dean (LG) put on a spectacular dance performance for the fans in front of the Sharing All-Stars’ dugout, Buchanan joined in. The hit song “Hype Boy” by popular idol Newzine was playing in the stadium, but Austin didn’t know the choreography.
Just as the baseball fans were getting frustrated, Buchanan suddenly appeared and hit the exact choreography of “Hype Boy. Instantly, the ballpark turned into a concert venue.
After the eighth inning, the crowd mimicked Buchanan’s dance. Buchanan’s dance was first shown on the big screen, and then the crowd was invited to follow along, but it turned out to be a hilarious moment when Buchanan mimicked the actions of a female spectator.
Buchanan also drew attention with his outfit, which was reminiscent of the main character in the popular film Top Gun.
