‘Water keeps coming up from the soil’ Incheon match canceled just before kickoff [Incheon Report].
Could it be the effect of the rain from the day before? I tried to force the game somehow, but it was canceled in the end.
The match between NC Dinos and SSG 토토사이트 Landers, which was scheduled to be held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 22nd, was canceled due to ground conditions. A large amount of rain poured from the previous night, and the rain forecast continued until the 24th, centering on the metropolitan area. A large tarpaulin was laid on the ground, but it continued to rain until this afternoon, and a large amount of rainwater accumulated on the infield ground.
Officials from the home team started cleaning the ground early. I was busy removing water and putting all my effort to create the best ground condition. However, it was difficult to meet the scheduled start time, and it was initially expected to start delayed by 20 to 30 minutes. Spectators were also starting to enter.
However, a variable occurred. It was a state of soil covering the entire infield. I removed the water with various equipment, but the water continued to come up from the soil. Landersfield has completed a full-scale renovation of the ground ahead of this season, and its drainage function is top-notch. However, since the amount of rain that has already accumulated is large, even after rainwater is removed, water continues to form. Biting is a fatal factor that can directly lead to injuries to players who play.
Officials from the home team and game supervisor Kim Si-jin checked the situation several times. There was a hint of a will to force the game somehow. Too many canceled matches put a strain on the rest of the schedule.
Nevertheless, it was difficult to proceed normally. Even if repairs are made, it may take too much time, and the wait itself will be in vain if additional rain occurs due to the continuous rain forecast. In the end, a decision was made to cancel. This match will be rescheduled at a later date.
