Director Park Jin-man surprised by ‘Police Rapac’: “You went to the bench for a while”

“I was surprised when the police came all the way to the bench.”

The Samsung Lions faced an unusually large police presence before the first game of a three-game weekend series against the LG Twins at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on May 5.

On May 5, a post on the official KBO application’s ‘Support Samsung-LG Game’ section read, “Dozens of people will be stabbed to death at Daegu Baseball Stadium today (May 5). Be prepared,” was posted. One of the citizens who saw the post reported it to the police via text message at 5:01 p.m., an hour and a half before the game started.

After receiving the report, the Daegu National Police Agency’s Cyber Investigation Team began tracking down the person who wrote the “stabbing warning.” In addition, riot police, commandos, and local police were deployed throughout Lions Park, and Daegu Police Chief Kim Soo-young and Daegu Suseong Police Chief Kim Young-soo personally directed the situation.

Fortunately, the Samsung-LG game on May 5 went off without a hitch, but the public’s anxiety has been heightened by the recent Seohyeon Station stabbing incident and the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell crime, making it impossible to ignore indiscriminate terrorist threats with specific times and locations online.

The KBO sent a letter to 10 clubs on April 4 in response to the recent spate of heinous crimes against unspecified people, which has led to growing social unrest. The letters requested thorough preparation for crimes and strengthening of overall stadium safety management, including enhanced security checks at spectator entrances, additional deployment of safety personnel, and increased cooperation with related organizations such as police and fire departments.

“I was surprised when the police came in and out of the bench during the game,” said Samsung coach Park Jin-man, recalling the past five days before the game against Doosan in Jamsil on Aug. 8. “It seemed like they were trying to figure out how people were coming and going.”

Four days later, it can be said to be funny, but the players playing at the time were also caught off guard by the unusual police presence on the bench.

However, Park was pleased with the way the team has paved the way to escape the bottom of the table since the start of the second-half race on March 21. Samsung has improved to 8 wins, 6 losses and 1 draw in the second half of the season, leaving ninth-place Kiwoom without a win. They are also only 2.5 games behind the eighth-placed Hanwha Eagles and could make a move this month.메이저사이트

“The team’s pace has picked up from the first half of the season,” said Park Jin-man, “and we’re continuing to build an atmosphere where we don’t feel like we’re going to lose easily.”
