Daejeon rained out after all, Moon Dong-joo vs. Widener matchup canceled, all 4 outdoor games…only Gocheok to be played
Daejeon, the only remaining outdoor stadium, was not spared from the rain.
The Hanwha-Samsung match scheduled to take place at Hanwha Life Eagles Park on the 23rd was canceled due to rain that started falling just before the game.
Black clouds rolled into the stadium 40 minutes before kickoff. The sky darkened rapidly and rain began to fall.
Some of the fans already in the stadium began to open their umbrellas and pull out their raincoats.
Only the mound and batting cages were covered with tarps 40 minutes before the start of the game. As the rain grew heavier, a large tarp covered the entire infield about 20 minutes before kickoff.
Players from both teams were able to complete their pregame training as normal before the rain started.
According to the Korea Meteorological Administration’s forecast, light rain is expected to start at 6 p.m. in the Daejeon area and gradually increase. The forecast is for rain throughout the game. It was a difficult situation where it was inevitable that the game would be canceled even if it started.
When the rain cancellation was announced five minutes before the start of the game, fans who were waiting for the game with umbrellas in the rain were disappointed. For the fans, Moon Hyun-bin, Noh Shi-hwan, and Lee Jin-young made up for their disappointment with a ceremony in which they circled the field and slid into home plate.
Jamsil (LG-Lotte) and Suwon (KT-KIA) have already been canceled due to rain, and Incheon (SSG-NC) has been canceled due to ground conditions. Daejeon was the only outdoor stadium that had not been canceled, except for Gocheok (Kiwoom-Dusijeon). With the cancellation of Daejeon, only Gocheok Stadium was available for the game.
Hanwha, which had lost three straight games the previous day after an error in the top of the ninth inning, was scheduled to start Han Seung-ju in an attempt to end the losing streak. With the game canceled due to rain, Moon Dong-ju will start on the 24th.메이저사이트
Meanwhile, Samsung, which has won two in a row thanks to a lucky come-from-behind victory, was set to continue its momentum with left-handed veteran Baek Jung-hyun, who has been on a roll lately. Samsung will start Widener on the 24th.
Manager Park Jin-man said, “If today’s game is canceled, Widner will start tomorrow (24th) against Hanwha. Baek Jung-hyun will start against Kiwoom on the 25th.”
