SK Wyverns manager loses consciousness during gameYoum Kyoung-youb, manager for the SK Wvyerns in the KBO, collapsed in his dugout at SK Happy Dream Park in Incheon after the top of the second inning against the Doosan Bears.
The 52-year-old was immediately transported to a local hospital. The Wyverns later said Youm regained consciousness inside the ambulance before reaching Gachon University Gil Medical Center, the largest general hospital in Incheon.
The Wyverns were trailing 6-3 at the time, and they got a run back in the bottom second in Youm's absence.
The Wyverns are mired in a seven-game losing streak. They're in ninth place among 10 clubs at 12-30.
This is Youm's second season as manager.
