NC Dinos infielder Park Min-woo 스포츠토토 (30) was hit by his own foul pitch and was replaced for player protection. But the substitution led to an extra run.

Park Min-woo started at second base against the Hanwha Eagles in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on Nov. 21.

After being removed from the first team roster at the end of the first half due to discomfort in his right shoulder, Park was reinstated on the day before the first game of the second half.

In the first inning, Park battled with starter Ricardo Sanchez for nine pitches. He got out of the inning with a single to right, but was hit by his own pitch in the at-bat and complained of pain.

Park Min-woo continued to bat and play defense, but was eventually replaced by Yoon Hyung-jun in the bottom of the fourth inning to end the game.

An NC official said, “Park Min-woo suffered a bruise on his right thigh after hitting a foul ball in the first inning. He was replaced for player protection and is currently undergoing icing treatment. There are no plans for a hospital checkup.”

Meanwhile, NC led 5-0 after the top of the fifth inning. Yoon Hyung-jun, who came into the game after Park Min-woo was sidelined with an injury, hit a two-run homer and Park Gun-woo hit a solo shot for three more runs.
