David Buchanan (34), a foreign pitcher from Samsung, brought laughter to fans with a splendid and colorful performance at the ‘Feast of the Stars’ All-Star Game. In the KBO All-Star Game held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 15th, Buchanan enjoyed running all over the ground.

He showed off his dancing skills as a third base run coach in the game. When Sharing All-Star Austin Dean (LG) danced to New Jeans’ ‘Hype boy’, he jumped out of the dugout and accurately executed the choreography next to him.

During cleaning time, he appeared on the ground wearing sunglasses in a pilot costume from the movie <Top Gun>.

When the performance of the honor guard of the Jinhae Base Command of the Republic of Korea Navy began, Buchanan applauded moderately and watched the performance earnestly.

He entered the game in the eighth inning as a great defensive right fielder. He caught Oh Ji-hwan’s big ball well in front of the fence.

The climax was the ninth at-bat. Buchanan, facing LG finisher Go Woo-seok in the 2nd 1st and 3rd bases behind 2-8, pretended to stare at the pitcher when Go Woo-seok’s fastball came toward him. Then, he hit a fastball at 150 km/h, leading to a heavy hit, and called Kim Sang-soo, who was on third base, home. Oh Ji-hwan took care of Buchanan’s hit ball.

When the Most Valuable Player (MVP) was announced at the All-Star Game, he even showed off his showmanship by stepping forward as if he deserved it.

Despite this performance, Buchanan did not receive the Best Performance Award. This award was given to Kim Min-seok (Lotte), who, like ‘Blackpink’ Jennie, danced with bobby pins in her hair, with 12 of the 24 votes cast by the reporters.

Buchanan, who entered the KBO League wearing a Samsung uniform in 2020, usually draws attention with playful gestures in the dugout. He made a funny face toward the relay camera, and sometimes showed a letter expressing his love for his wife to his camera.토토사이트주소

Even so, he spreads serious and powerful pitches only when he stands on the mound. Buchanan, who won 15 wins (7 losses) in 2020, stood tall as Samsung’s ace by accumulating double-digit multipliers for three consecutive seasons until last year. In the KIA game on the 13th, the last game of the first half, he won the KBO’s first complete game this season with 4 hits, 8 strikeouts and 1 run in 9 innings.

Buchanan, who played the All-Star Game more passionately than anyone else, said, “I am satisfied with enjoying the All-Star Game with the fans.”
