Variables Made by Rain…If it rains at 7 p.m., will the baseball final be shortened to 5 innings?

South Korea will play Taiwan in the final match of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games at Saoxing Baseball-Softball Sports Center in Zhejiang Province, China, at 7 p.m. on the 7th (Korea time). However, it rained in downtown Saoxing from the early hours of the day, raising the possibility of rain cancellation. If the game cannot be held on the 7th due to rain, it will be postponed to the 8th, a day later, according to the Asian Games baseball event management regulations. 스포츠토토사이트

According to Accuweather, which provides weather forecasts around the world, the probability of precipitation in Hangzhou on the 7th is 80%. Shaoxing, home to a baseball stadium, is outside Hangzhou. A KBO official staying with the national team in Saoxing said, “It stopped raining in the morning and now it’s falling a little bit again. “There is no problem with the progress of the game, so the bronze medal match between Japan and China is going well without difficulty,” he said.

The organizing committee of the competition arbitrarily prepared Plan A and Plan B to prepare for the rainy weather. It is a provision that if the rainfall is low at the start of the game, the final will be pushed forward, but if the rain does not stop, it will only be carried out up to five innings. In addition, if it is judged that the game is too heavy to complete, the final will be held at 9 a.m. on the 8th (8 a.m. local time). The 8th is the closing day, so the games and award ceremonies must be completed by 1 p.m. (12 p.m. local time).

However, the precipitation standard that determines “light” and “heavy” was not clearly indicated. In addition, an official from the Asian Baseball Federation (BFA) confirmed to a KBO official that “the gold medal match will last up to nine innings.”

In the final, South Korea’s Moon Dong-ju (Hanwha Eagles) and Taiwan’s Lin Yeo-min (Arizona Diamondbacks Minor League), who faced off as starters in the group stage on the 2nd, are likely to face each other again. South Korea, which lost against Taiwan in the group stage on the 2nd, is determined to avenge it.
