A glove as a mask? ‘Closer Kim Jae-yoon → a model quarantine man transformed

KT won 3-1 with So Hyung-joon’s good pitching and Alford’s winning hit at second and third bases with one out in the bottom of the fifth inning in the game between Lotte-KT of the “2022 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League” at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do on the 9th.

There is a high-five zone at KT Wiz Park in Suwon. It is a place where you can watch the game right in front of the first base ground and come out to the ground to make high fives with the winning players when the team wins.

While high-fiving with the audience in the right, he covered his mouth and nose with his left hand with a glove.

When I asked a team official, he said, “I think he/she covered his/her mouth and nose with a glove when breathing to prevent COVID-19 infection in case of rough breathing due to the power pitch until the end.”

As a result of watching closely during the Hi-Fibre with the audience, when there was a gap between the spectators, they kept their gloves away from their mouths and noses and breathed comfortably.

Kim Jae-yoon has not yet had COVID-19. It was a scene where Kim Jae-yoon, who turned into a model quarantine man for me, the team, and the audience, stood out.

Kim Jae-yoon, who turned catcher to pitcher, joined the KT Wiz in 2015 and is playing as a closer to protecting KT’s victory with 125 saves in his career. He is in third place in saves with three wins, four losses, and a 3.26 ERA in the 2022 season.

Meanwhile, fourth-place KT announced Despaigne as a starter in a game against NC in Changwon on the 3rd.
