The rule is to keep an eye on the situation until 30 minutes after the start of the game. However, the Jamsil game on the 22nd was canceled due to rain at 6:20, 20 minutes after the game started. A sigh of regret erupted from the audience.
The 10th game of the season between 1st place LG and 2nd place SSG, scheduled for the 22nd at Jamsil Stadium, was canceled due to rain. The supervisor of the Jamsil match on this day was Kim Yong-hee. However, it was the referees who decided to cancel the rain. According to the rules, the judges decide whether or not to cancel the match after the rain starts, but since the game was about to start at 6:00, the right to cancel was passed to the referees.
In fact, ahead of 6:00, the starting lineup of the home team, LG, was being introduced on the display board. However, the rain suddenly became strong and the field maintenance staff laid a tarp. The start of the game was delayed for 20 minutes, and at 6:20 the game was canceled due to rain.
A look back at previous examples and regulations raises a question mark. In the event of a game entering into rain, at least 30 minutes are required before a decision is made to cancel the match. After observing the weather conditions for 30 minutes, a decision must be made whether to cancel the tour in case of rain. However, it took only 20 minutes for the rain cancellation to be decided on this day.
The reason was as follows. Referee Huh Woon said in a phone call with Sports Seoul, “I tried to start the game and started preparing for the game. At that moment, the decision to cancel the rain passed from the supervisor to the judges.”
Chairman Heo continued, “The decision to cancel the rain in 20 minutes is because the match has not started yet. If the game has started, you have to watch it for at least 30 minutes. However, I waited for a while without starting the game. Looking at the weather conditions ahead, rain was predicted until 9 o’clock. The clouds kept coming. So, I was reported to the judges in Jamsil that it was cancelled.”
The spectators rose from their seats with hearts full of regret. The players were a little comforted by this. LG Moon Seong-ju, Moon Bo-kyung, Lee Joo-hyung, and Song Chan-eui came out side by side to the ground and held a sliding ceremony. At the end, Austin Dean also came out and joined the ceremony. The crowd cheered and chanted Austin.
On the other hand, the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) announced on the 20th that it will introduce Monday games as there are many cancellations due to rain in the first half. From August 5, if Saturday and Sunday matches are canceled, the canceled matches will be played on Monday.토토사이트
Games canceled on this day will not be scheduled on Monday. On the 29th of last month, LG and SSG had a game canceled in Literature as well. Both canceled matches will be included in the remaining match schedule.
