The only remaining outdoor stadium, Daejeon, could not escape the rain.
The Hanwha-Samsung match, 토토사이트 which was scheduled to be held at Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 23rd, was canceled due to rain that started right before the game.
A dark cloud came over the stadium 40 minutes before the start of the game. The sky suddenly darkened and it started to rain little by little.
Some of the spectators who had already entered opened their umbrellas and started putting on raincoats.
Tarpaulins were laid only on the mound and at bat, 40 minutes before the start of the game. As the rain gradually became thicker, a large tarp covering the entire infield was laid about 20 minutes before the start of the game.
Players from both teams completed their pre-match training as usual before the rain started to fall.
According to the forecast of the Korea Meteorological Administration, the Daejeon area is predicted to start with light rain from 6 p.m. and gradually become thicker. The forecast is for rain throughout the game. Even if the game started, it was a difficult situation where it was inevitable to stop.
When it was decided to cancel the game in the rain 5 minutes before the start, the fans who were waiting for the game holding umbrellas in the rain couldn’t help but feel sorry for them. For the fans, Moon Hyun-bin, Noh Si-hwan, Lee Jin-young, and others mixed body jokes, circling the ground once, and sliding into the home, soothed the fans’ disappointment.
Jamsil (LG-Lotte match) and Suwon (KT-KIA match) will be canceled due to rain, and Incheon (SSG-NC match) will be canceled due to ground conditions. Excluding Gocheok (Kiwoom-Dusajeon), Daejeon was the only outdoor stadium that was not canceled. Daejeon was also canceled, so only the Gocheok Stadium was held on this day.
The previous day, Hanwha, who fell into a 3-game losing streak amid a heartbreaking mistake in the top of the 9th inning, was planning to escape the losing streak with Han Seung-joo as the starter. Due to the cancellation due to rain, Moon Dong-ju will start on the 24th.
On the other hand, Samsung, which won two consecutive victories with a lucky come-from-behind victory, was planning to continue its momentum with the recent rising left-handed veteran Baek Jeong-hyun. For Samsung, Widener will start on the 24th.
Manager Park Jin-man said, “If today’s game is canceled, Widener will play against Hanwha tomorrow (24th). Baek Jung-hyun will play against Kiwoom on the 25th.”
