Dodgers News: Egg Thrown Toward Dave Roberts At Incheon Airport In South Korea

The Los Angeles Dodgers arrived at Incheon Airport in South Korea on Friday, or Thursday night in California, as they prepare for the Seoul Series against the San Diego Padres.

The Dodgers were greeted by fans lined up at the airport, and of course Shohei Ohtani was the biggest star of the bunch with sections of fans waiting to catch a glimpse of baseball’s unicorn. It was also the first time Ohtani has been spotted in public with his wife, Mamiko Tanaka.

But amid all the excitement of the event, one person attempted to throw an egg at Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, according to Jeeho Yoo of the Yonhap News Agency:

SBS News caught the scene on video, which was shared to X, formerly Twitter, by user @Jonas12_oioi:

Thankfully for Roberts, it was just an egg and nothing more serious, and he came away from it unscathed.

As Yoo reported, law enforcement is trying to find out the motivation and anything else about it, but there have been no further updates regarding the situation.

Watch: Dodgers and Dave Roberts arrive in South Korea

Although it’s the San Diego Padres with a Korean-born player on their roster in Ha-Seong Kim, the Dodgers’ popularity in Asia has skyrocketed since their signings of Shohei Ohtani and Yoshinobu Yamamoto during the offseason. They also have a history with Korean-born players that has made them popular in the country.

Because of that, they were greeted with plenty of fanfare as they arrived.
