“We also have to cancel the rainy weather.”
Director Hong Won-ki of Kiwoom Heroes talked about the recent cancellation of rainy weather in an interview before the game with SGG Landers of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 6th. talked
A lot of rain has been falling across the country since the last 5 days. The KBO League expected a box office hit on Children’s Day, but all four games except for the one held at Gocheok Dome were canceled. As the rain continued until this day, matches in Jamsil (Doosan-LG), Changwon (NC-KIA), and Daejeon (Hanwha-KT) were already canceled due to rain. The Busan (Lotte-Samsung) game is also likely to be canceled due to rain.
Head coach Hong Won-ki, who was the only one to play on the 5th, entered the dugout that day and saw water droplets dripping from the ceiling one or two drops, and laughed, saying, “We should also cancel the rain.” On this day, water droplets fell around the dugout at Gocheok Dome, but a Kiwoom official said, “It is not a structural defect. Water leaked from the roof in the past, but now all repairs have been completed. However, it is said that sometimes water enters the vent and drips little by little.”
Compared to other teams, Kiwoom, which uses a dome stadium as its home stadium, has fewer games canceled in the rain. While it has the advantage of being able to avoid the heat in the hot summer, there is also the disadvantage of having to continue to digest the schedule while other teams take a break during the rainy season. 토스카지노
Director Hong Won-ki said, “It’s not like we can rest just because we want it anyway. There are things we can’t rest when other teams are resting, but there are strengths in keeping the game plan and routine.”
Kiwoom, who has lost two consecutive losses, will start Ace Woo-jin An on this day. Coach Hong Won-ki said, “The players will think more about scoring quickly on the day Ahn Woo-jin starts. An Woo-jin also accepts the fact that he does not receive scoring support well as his fate as the first starter. Still, there are a lot of games canceled in the rain this time, so the starting rotation for other teams will be different.”
