Heavy rain like a hole in the sky…the ground was flooded in an instant, Jamsil Doosan-NC game canceled due to rain.

The KBO League Jamsil game on the 18th was canceled due to localized heavy rain. 

The 11th match between the Doosan 메이저놀이터 Bears and the NC Dinos of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League season, held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 18th, was canceled due to heavy rain that started even before the game started.

Jamsil Stadium, which had been sweltering with heat all day, suddenly rained 30 minutes before the start of the match. The amount of rain gradually increased, and heavy rain fell as if a hole had been opened in the sky, and the ground quickly became a sea of ​​water. Puddles of water were formed all over the first and third base bullpens, foul areas, and outfield warning tracks. Fortunately, the infield ground was covered with a tarp when the rain started, but it was expected that it would take quite a while to restore the overall ground.

While the spectators entered, the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) made a decision to delay the start and watched the weather conditions. However, the rain did not show any signs of stopping, and rather, more heavy rain fell and worsened the ground condition. In the end, it was decided to cancel the show at 7:00 p.m. due to rain.

Both teams were scheduled to start with Gwak Bin (Doosan) and Song Myeong-ki (NC) on this day. In the match on the 19th, a new starting matchup between Choi Seung-yong (Doosan) and Eric Peddy (NC) was concluded.
