‘Resignation All-Star Game’ after 16 years… What if the rain gets thick?

On All-Star Friday, the eve of the All-Star Game, the Futures All-Star Game, a feast for second-team players, will be held. Starting at 6 p.m., the Southern League (Sangsung, NC, Samsung, Lotte, KT, KIA) and Northern League (Hanwha, LG, Goyang, SSG, Doosan) will face off against each other.

After the Futures All-Star Game, the crown jewel of the All-Star Game, the Com2Sports Pro Baseball Home Run Race, will be held, with all 50 KBO All-Stars taking the field, including 10 big hitters.

Unlike last year’s individual competition, the home run race is now a team competition. All-stars from each team will compete in a relay format for 20 minutes, and the team with the most home runs will win.

The main All-Star game will be held on the 15th, pitting the Dream All-Stars (SSG, KT, Samsung, Lotte, Doosan) against the Sharing All-Stars (Kiwoom, LG, KIA, NC, Hanwha).메이저사이트

The day will begin with the KBO All-Star Fan Signing. The “Shinhan Bank SOL Summer Race,” an obstacle team relay with players from 10 clubs and young fans selected by lottery, will be held.

Before the game, the official start of the event will be marked by a large-scale flag ceremony with 60 sailors from the Busan Naval Operations Command. There will also be an air show by the ROK Air Force’s Black Eagles. A Fan Fest Zone will be set up in the plaza outside Sajik Baseball Stadium to provide various baseball experience opportunities.

Prior to the main game at 6 p.m., former Lotte “Mr. All-Star” players Kim Yong-hee, Heo Kyu-ok, Kim Min-ho, Kim Eung-guk, and Jeon Jun-woo will open the game with a ceremonial pitch.

During the game, all eyes will be on the all-star performances that will reward the fans’ love.

There is a rich program for the star-studded festival, but the rainy season is a variable. There is a 60 to 70 percent chance of rain in the Busan area on the 14th and 15th.

“If it rains on the 14th, we will postpone the Futures League game to the following day,” said a KBO official, “and the All-Star Game may be postponed to Sunday (the 16th).” If it rains on the 16th, the All-Star Game will be canceled.

The All-Star Game has only been rained out once before. In 1983, the All-Star Game was played in three games, and the second game, scheduled for July 2 that year, was rained out.
