“I’m from Daegu, but…” Sultry heat→Midrange fight with national batsmen tongue in cheek


“I grew up in Daegu…”

The maximum temperature in Daegu, where the LG Twins-Samsung Lions baseball game was held on the 4th, was 37 degrees.

If Daegu wasn’t hot enough, Seoul was. The maximum temperature in Seoul was 35 degrees, and Gwangju and Changwon were 36 degrees. Of the five stadiums, only Busan (34 degrees) was cooler.

For teams playing outdoors, it’s hot everywhere. The humidity of the August heat wave, which feels like a sauna, is just as bad.

Doosan Bears manager Lee Seung-yeop, the “national hitter,” was also tongue-in-cheek. “I grew up in Daegu, so I’m used to the heat, but the weather is hotter than usual these days,” he sighed when we met before the KT Wiz game at Jamsil Stadium.토토사이트

That’s why Doosan ordered the team to practice independently. Coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “Practice is just a preparation for the game. It’s not camp, and it’s not the beginning of the season, so it’s not the time to improve your skills.” “There are some players who are tired. Players who need rest should take a break. We left the amount of practice to the players.” However, the non-starters will continue to practice.

Since the beginning of July, Doosan’s 11-game winning streak has ignited the mid-table battle, but the SSG Landers faltered and the Lotte Giants crashed, along with the surge of the Hanwha Eagles and KT Wiz, and the faltering LG Twins’ winning streak. Only one game separates third-place Doosan from fifth-place NC Dinos. Meanwhile, the gap between SSG and Doosan has shrunk to four games.

Coach Lee said, “It’s a really important time. We have fewer games left. Even if we lose, the damage can be very big depending on how we lose, and there are head-to-head games (like today), so the battle for the top spot is more intense.” “KT’s pace is so good, so we will play with the idea that we can’t lose,” he emphasized.

KT went 8-1 in the second half of the season against top teams, including the LG Twins, NC Dinos and SSG Landers. In the process, they leapfrogged NC into fourth place. After three days, they are one game behind Doosan in fourth place.

“They’re a team above us,” KT manager Lee Kang-cheol said, “but in this kind of weather, it’s good for the offense to have a fast pitcher’s tempo. The shorter the defense time, the more focused the players are and the fewer mistakes they make. I’m like, ‘It’s your fault. It’s your fault, you’re off for too long and (the hitters) lose focus,'” he said. “Still, our pitchers have a high tempo. We’ll be ready for pitch clock next year.”
