Bae Chan-seung, who had not had a chance to pitch in the preliminary round, suddenly got his first pitch. While the last game of the preliminary round against Puerto Rico was postponed to a suspended game, a situation arose where it was played on the same day as the super round match between Korea and Japan. Korea, which used up ‘Ace’ Kim Taek-yeon’s card in the suspended game against Puerto Rico, chose Bae Chan-seung as the starting pitcher for the Korea-Japan match.
Bae Chan-seung took the mound as the starting pitcher for the Korea-Japan game held in Taipei, Taiwan on September 7 and got off to a clean start with a three-way strikeout in the bottom of the first inning.
However, a crisis came right at the end of the second inning. Bae Chan-seung struck out the lead batter in the bottom of the second inning, but a not-out situation occurred and allowed him to get on base. Bae Chan-seung was in danger with 1 out and 2nd and 3rd base due to an infield hit and a wild pitch. In the end, Bae Chan-seung gave up the first run by hitting a 2-RBI triple and a 1-RBI ground ball in succession.
Bae Chan-seung continued to pitch steadfastly despite conceding the first run. Bae Chan-seung, who found stability again with a three-way strike in the bottom of the third inning, made consecutive three-way strikes in the bottom of the fourth inning. Bae Chan-seung had a hit to right with one out in the bottom of the fifth inning, but struck out the subsequent batters and ended the inning.
Bae Chan-seung hit a solo home run to the leadoff hitter in the bottom of the sixth inning, then passed the ball to Jeon Mir and finished his appearance. Bae Chan-seung pitched better than expected on this day with 73 pitches (52 strikes), 4 hits (1 home run), 7 strikeouts, and 4 runs (2 earned runs) in 5 innings. Although the team’s batting line was silent and the team’s lineup was overshadowed by a 1-7 complete loss, Bae Chan-seung showed off an impressive pitch that showed off his potential.
However, Bae Chan-seung experienced something serious the day after his start in the Korea-Japan game. Bae Chan-seung fell unconscious during ground training ahead of the Super Round match against the United States on the 8th.
According to local media reports in Taiwan, Bae Chan-seung fainted during training in the outfield ahead of the game against the United States and received cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
Taiwanese media outlet ‘ETtoday’ reported, “A Korean player who was warming up in the outfield suddenly lost consciousness, fell to the ground, and received emergency treatment. The Korean athlete, who regained consciousness after receiving CPR, was immediately transferred to the tournament’s partner hospital for further examination. He is also scheduled to undergo a CT scan,” the report said.
A baseball official familiar with the situation of the youth baseball team said, “Fortunately, I heard that Bae Chan-seung recovered his consciousness well while receiving on-site first aid and additional medical examination at the hospital. He said, “It seems like he suffered a lot from running training in the hot local weather the next day after throwing a lot of balls during his starting pitch in the Korea-Japan game.”
The Korean youth baseball team, which was relieved by Bae Chan-seung’s sudden collapse and recovery of consciousness, plans to play the final game of the Super Round, the Netherlands, on September 9. Korea, which failed to advance to the finals of the tournament due to its loss to the United States, will advance to the third and fourth place match and bronze medal match to be held on the 10th if it defeats the Netherlands.
