Doosan Fernandez, who was at bat, picked up Han Seung-hyuk’s catcher mask. He rubbed several times on his uniform and shook the dirt off Han Seung-hyuk’s catcher mask.
Han Seung-hyuk, who picked up the catcher Marks wiped by Fernandez, looked at Fernandez with a pleasant smile. There are often cases where a catcher mask that fell to the ground is picked up and delivered to the catcher, but there were few cases where he carefully shook off the soil.
Recently, more and more players are injured in home clashes. In that sense, the small consideration of the catcher and the batter for each other made the audience smile.
