The number of cancelled games in the Korean Baseball Organization has been gradually increasing due to the ongoing rainy season.토스카지노

This year’s KBO League had 46 games cancelled due to rain and fine dust by the 11th from the start of the season in April. On the 11th, all but four games were cancelled due to rain, including the KT-Kiwoom game at the Gocheok SkyDome.

The more games are cancelled, the tighter the schedule will be at the end of the season. Kia’s situation is the most serious. Kia has missed 13 games, the most of any of the 10 teams.

Lotte and NC also lost 12 and 11 games, respectively, due to rain. Hanwha also had 10 games cancelled. With two games remaining before the end of the first half, rain is forecast for the rest of the week. The number of rain cancellations is likely to increase in the coming days.

Lotte, NC and KIA, who are in a tight mid-table battle, are bound to feel the pressure of the gruelling schedule ahead in the second half. At least 10 more games will be added to their second half schedules.

If the number of cancellations continues to rise, there is also the possibility of playing games on Mondays, a rest day, or even doubleheaders if necessary. The tight schedule will likely have a negative impact on the standings race heading into autumn baseball.

Meanwhile, the 2023 All-Star Game will be held at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 15th to conclude the first half of the schedule on the 13th. The teams will then take a break before resuming the second half of the season on the 21st.
