“Unreasonable decision, I can’t understand” Director Hong Won-ki was angry at the unreasonable doubleheader organization on the reserve day 

Kiwoom Heroes coach Hong Won-ki was furious over the organization of the KBO’s remaining games.

KBO confirmed the schedule for the remaining games of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO regular season on the 29th. If a game is canceled due to rain or other reasons from the 29th to September 7th, it will be organized as a preliminary day according to the announced schedule.

After the 13th game of the season against SSG Landers, which was scheduled to be held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon, was canceled in the rain, coach Hong met with reporters and shook his head about the rest of the regular season schedule. Coach Hong said, “Looking at the remaining game schedule, it was unreasonable. There is a reserve day behind, but after the Changwon expedition, the game started at 2:00 and a double header was put in. It is an unreasonable schedule.”

If there is no reserve day, games with the same bracket after September 12 will be organized as a double header on the second day of the same bracket, and games without the same bracket after September 12 will be organized later.

However, in the case of Kiwoom, they return to Gocheok after three consecutive matches during the week in Changwon from September 5th to 7th, and a double header is organized with the Hanwha Eagles on the 9th. From the match against Hanwha on the 8th to the 10th, we have to play 4 games over 3 days.

The curious part is that there is a reserve day in Gocheok right behind it. The KBO has reserved the 11th, 13th, and 14th in Gocheok. It is okay to skip the double header on the 9th and organize it as a reserve day.토토사이트

After the trip to Gocheok, Hanwha Island will take a break on Monday the 11th and have a game against Doosan in Jamsil on the 12th. 14 days off after that. There is no problem even if the Kiwoom and Hanwha match is organized on the reserve day of the 13th. Saturday’s doubleheader can be difficult for both teams to show their true performance. It is a physically demanding schedule.

In a situation where there is no rain pouring down on the Gocheok ‘Dome’ baseball field, it is not even a matter of saving Aviil. If the game is canceled due to rain after the game on Friday, September 8, it is said that it will be organized on the preliminary day of the announced schedule first. However, this does not apply to Gocheok matches.

Kiwoom arrives in Seoul at dawn after an expedition to Changwon. We have to play Friday evening and prepare for two games a day from Saturday afternoon. Coach Hong has no choice but to be dissatisfied with the scheduling of the remaining games.

Meanwhile, the first game of the double header starts at 15:00 on weekdays and 14:00 on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, and the second game starts at 18:30 on weekdays and 17:00 on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. If the first leg is canceled or ends early, the second leg will be played at the original scheduled time. However, if the first leg ends after 18:00 on weekdays and 16:30 on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, the second leg will be played 30 minutes after the end.

Coach Hong said, “There is also a reserve day, but I put a double header on that day. He sees it as a decision that is difficult to understand.”
