Bae Ji-hwan’s Pittsburgh Pirates have a tough road ahead of them.

Local media, including Milwaukee’s CBS58, reported on the team’s travels from Chicago to Milwaukee on Sunday.

The Pittsburgh Pirates boarded a bus to travel to Milwaukee after completing the final game of a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs on April 16.

The distance between Chicago and Milwaukee is 148 kilometers, or about an hour and a half by car. Because of this distance, Major League Baseball teams travel between the two cities by bus rather than airplane.

The buses carrying the team were escorted by police, just like any other away trip.스포츠토토

But the Illinois State Police trooper escorting the bus noticed something odd while traveling down Interstate 94. They noticed that the team bus was driving erratically.

According to CWB Chicago, the police initially thought the driver was not feeling well and called for an ambulance.

The truth was different. The bus driver, a 61-year-old man named Ronald E. Funderburk, was arrested on the spot after a police investigation revealed that he had been drinking.

Details, including his blood alcohol level, were not released. The team later arrived safely in Milwaukee and began a three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers.

“Most importantly, everyone on the team arrived safely in Milwaukee,” the Pirates said. We utilized a bus provided by the same contractor we have been using for this trip. We are in communication with the parties involved in this matter.”
