With the rainy season soaking the country, the KBO All-Star Game in Busan on the 14th was also hit hard by the rain. The pre-event ‘All-Star Friday’ on the first day of the All-Star Game was cancelled one after another. However, the rain started to lighten around 16:00 and the Future All-Star Game and Home Run Race were held as scheduled from 18:00.
토스카지노The KBO All-Star Game, which will be held at Sajik Stadium in Busan for the first time in 16 years, is scheduled for the 14th and 15th. The Little League Baseball All-Star Game, which was scheduled to take place at 2:10 p.m. on the 14th, and the Korean Women’s Baseball Federation players’ home run race at 4:30 p.m. were cancelled due to rain.
The One Point Lesson, which was to be held at the plaza in front of Sajik Stadium from 4 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. with the four Futures All-Stars, was also cancelled due to rain. Jung Yi-hwang (Hanwha Eagles), Lee Seung-min (Armed Forces Athletic Corps), Kim Bum-seok (LG Twins), and Seo Dong-wook (Lotte Giants) were scheduled to participate in the event.
The pregame was cancelled due to rain, but the Future All-Star Game will go ahead as scheduled at 6pm. There will also be a home run race after the Futures All-Star Game. The main events of the day, the Futures All-Star Game and the Home Run Race, were held at the same time, and spectators began to trickle in around 5pm.
Six players, including Choi Jeong (SSG), who is tied for first place in home runs with Noh Si-hwan (Hanwha), Chae Eun-sung (Hanwha), Park Dong-won, Austin (LG), Park Byung-ho (KT), and Han Dong-hee (Lotte), will participate in the home run race.
Initially, the KBO organisers had planned for this year’s All-Star Home Run Race to be a team competition, but when a player who was scheduled to compete was unable to participate due to injury, they decided to make it an individual event.
The All-Star Home Run Race, which will be played with seven outs per player, will award the winner with a cash prize of 5 million won, a trophy, and an LG Standby Me GO. The runner-up will also receive 1 million won and a trophy, and the player with the longest home run will win a Samsung Galaxy Tab S8.
Noh Si-hwan and Choi Jung (SSG Landers), who are tied for first place with 19 home runs apiece in the first half of the season, were set to face off in the home run race. However, the game changed when Choi was ruled out of the All-Star Game due to injury.
Noh Si-hwan will attempt to become the first Hanwha player to win the All-Star Home Run Race in six years after Willin Rosario in 2017. Park Byung-ho, who has won the regular season home run title six times in his career but has yet to win an All-Star Home Run Race trophy, will be a threat to Noh. Han Dong-hee, who is playing in the All-Star Game as a substitute due to Choi Jeong-jeong’s absence, is determined to showcase his skills at home.
