Oh Jae-won has to borrow bat after his is confiscated
Doosan Bears’ veteran infielder Oh Jae-won had to borrow a bat against the Kiwoom Heroes on Tuesday after his was confiscated.
Oh plays with a Rawlings bat that has previously been certified by the KBO, but isn’t an official bat this year because no club requested it be included on the permitted bat list.
After Heroes’ manager Hong Wong-ki pointed this out on Tuesday, the umpires confiscated Oh’s bat. He had to borrow one for the rest of the game, picking up three hits despite the change of equipment.
