Rain clouds are rolling in again in Daegu.
It is raining at Lions Park in Daegu on the 21st, the day of the Doosan-Samsung match. The rain, which started about three hours before kickoff, rewetted the field, which had been dampened by heavy rain the day before.
It’s not a lot of rain, but it’s not stopping.
The large tarpaulin that was placed on the infield after the Samsung-SSG game was canceled due to rain the day before was still in place.
An hour before the start of the game, we shook off the water on the large tarp to prepare for the game.
Spectators are in the stands. As the rain continues to fall, spectators take shelter in the hallways and under the eaves. Some spectators in the stands are armed with rain gear and umbrellas as they wait for the game to start.
The large tarp is not fully retracted, but stretched out in the outfield. As the rain intensified, it was covered again.
The tarp on the home side was put back up 40 minutes before kickoff. At this point, we are not sure if the game will start on time. The sky is overcast, and it looks like it will continue to rain.
Samsung is expected to start Buchanan and Doosan is expected to start Brandon.
In the unlikely event of a rainout, the game will be rescheduled for a doubleheader on the 22nd. The forecast is for the rain to stop by the time the game starts. However, new rain clouds are approaching from the west, so there is a chance of a change.
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop, who came to Daegu after the Jamsil NC game was canceled due to rain the day before, said, “The rain is no longer welcome. If we play a doubleheader, it won’t be easy to organize the starting lineup for next week,” he said, looking wistfully at the darkened skies of his hometown.캡틴토토
Thirty minutes before the start of the game, the rain stopped, and the team took down the large tarpaulin and started preparing for the game. “We will start the game at 6:40, 10 minutes late,” Samsung said. The game actually started at 6:45, 15 minutes late.
