The Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) announced on Monday that it has finalized the schedule for the remainder of the 2023 KBO season.
The most notable of these is that Anbang and Hanwha will play back-to-back games (a doubleheader) at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul next month on April 9.
This is the first time a baseball doubleheader will be held at the Gocheok Dome.
Of course, it’s also the first time in the history of the Korean Baseball Organization that a doubleheader will be played in a dome.
In a dome, there is no such thing as a rain date.
Therefore, teams that use domed stadiums as home stadiums have to play when others are off.
This year alone, we played on May 5 and 6, last month on the 11th, and this month on the 10th and 23rd at the Gocheok Dome.
So, the argument that “why do we have to play a doubleheader when we have the dome as our home base” is not completely wrong, as coach Hong Won-ki Keum said.
However, Nippon Professional Baseball did have a “dome ballpark doubleheader” on October 2, 7, and 9, 1998.
All six games were played at the Seibu Dome (now the Verunadome).
The Seibu Dome is an “open dome stadium” that was originally an open stadium, Seibu Stadium, with only a roof over it.
As a result, there are outfield home runs, and when it rains, the rain pours into the stands.
For reference, there hasn’t been a doubleheader in the Pacific League (PL) since October 9, 1998, the last time the Seibu Dome hosted a doubleheader.
In the Central League (CL), there hasn’t been a doubleheader since October 10, 1998, when Junichi-Yokohama played the next day.
Since 1998, doubleheaders have been scheduled but never played. 카지노사이트
Half of the 12 teams in Japanese professional baseball play in domed stadiums.
Of the 30 teams in Major League Baseball (MLB), Tampa Bay is the only team that plays its home games in a fully enclosed dome.
Tampa Bay’s enclosed Tropicana Field has hosted a total of five doubleheaders in its history.
The first was on October 1, 2004. The game had to be rescheduled due to Hurricane Frances, so it became a doubleheader.
Then, on June 11, 2017, we had a “scheduled” doubleheader. A doubleheader that was scheduled as a promotional effort.
We also played doubleheaders at Tropicana Field on September 4, 2019, August 9, 2020, and July 7, 2021.
