Video of the Week: "KIA Tigers 3rd Baseman in Foul Territory"
The KIA Tigers clearly have no regard for the sacred rules of baseball when the game is on the line in the 9th inning.
So, The KIA Tigers of the Korean Baseball Organization found themselves in a tight game. It was the 9th inning, and the score was tied with runners on 2nd and 3rd and two outs.
As the Tigers were on defense, they obviously didn't want the other team to score. So, they got creative.
The picture on the mound had a reputation for being a bit too erratic at times. The Tigers wanted to protect against the runner on 3rd scoring because of a wild pitch. Naturally, they decided to have their 3rd baseman play in foul territory behind the catcher.
Two catchers. Great idea!
Except it isn't a great idea. It is against the rules.
