The first and second game between SSG Landers and LG Twins, which was scheduled to take place in Jamsil, was cancelled due to heavy rain just before the game. The cancelled game will be rescheduled at a later date.
The game was scheduled to start at 6pm. At around 3:30 p.m., it started to rain lightly, but it soon stopped and SSG players went through their normal training outside.
After the players finished training, it started to rain about an hour before kickoff. However, the amount of rain was not heavy. At around 5.40pm, match supervisor Kim Yong-hee went to the field to check the conditions and decided to start the match at 6pm. “Considering the condition of the ground and the amount of rain, we are not in a position to cancel or delay the game. We will start at 6:00,” he said.
With LG Adam Plutko and SSG Roenis Elias scheduled to start, LG’s lineup is Hong Chang-gi, Moon Sung-joo, Kim Hyun-soo, Austin Dean, Oh Ji-hwan, Park Dong-won, Moon Bo-kyung, Park Hae-min, and Shin Min-jae, the best lineup with seven left-handed batters, even though Elias is a left-handed pitcher. SSG had the same line-up as the day before, with Choo Shin-soo, Choi Ji-hoon, Choi Jeong, Choi Joo-hwan, Park Sung, Ha Jae-hoon, Kim Sung-hyun, Kim Min-shik, and Kang Jin-seong.메이저놀이터
Ten minutes before 5:50, the rain stopped and the tarp was removed. It looked like a normal game would be played. However, at 5:54, when the LG stadium announcer was about to introduce LG’s starting lineup by shouting “LG starting lineup”, it suddenly started raining heavily. We put the tarp back on and covered the dirt area between the bases.
The rain kept coming down harder and harder, until I couldn’t see a thing. After about 20 minutes of heavy rain, it started to lighten up, but the game was soon cancelled.
LG players came out onto the field to greet the fans, and for the disappointed fans, four players, including Moon Bo-kyung, Song Chan, Lee Ju-hyung, and Moon Sung-joo, came out onto the field and performed a “rain ceremony” by sliding on the tarp. Austin then came out and slid into first, second, and third base to the delight of the fans.
