Among baseball fans, there is a slang called ‘Pervert with full bases’. A phrase used whenever a pitcher puts the bases loaded with runners on and blocks the inning with a scoreless run. It is a situation that can feel thrilling for the pitcher who prevents the moment of crisis, but from the point of view of the watching fan, it is a situation that has no choice but to watch with a tight heart.
Eui-ri Lee (21) of the KIA Tigers is a representative player who is called a ‘pervert with full bases’ among fans. A strikeout show with a powerful fastball that spanned 150km, and in an instant, the ball swayed, causing a crisis with a full base, and as it became more frequent to block this with a scoreless run, the tag was attached. 메이저놀이터

In the beginning of the 4th inning, Eui-ri Lee faced another crisis with a hit-strike-hit-fly-ball-walk.
