[Asian Games] National baseball team caught by Taiwan, ‘basking in the hot sun’ before the finals
If you advance to the super round in second place in Group B, all day games will be assigned… Starts at 12:00 local time
The baseball team, which was defeated by Chinese Taipei in the group stage of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, is expected to play all games during the day until the finals.
Korean National Baseball Team
Due to the nature of the KBO league, which mainly plays games at night,
it is not a very welcoming schedule for the Korean national baseball team.
Korea lost 0-4 in the match against Taiwan held at Stadium 1 of the Shaoxing Baseball and Softball Sports Center in Zhejiang Province, China on the 2nd,
so it is highly likely that they will pass the Group B stage in second place. 카지노사이트
Korea will face Thailand, the weakest team, at 1 p.m. (Korean time) on the 3rd,
Taiwan will play Hong Kong, where Korea won a cold game, at the same time.
If both Korea and Taiwan win, Taiwan will take first place in the group and Korea will take second place in the group and advance to the super round where the top two teams from each group compete.
In Group A, Japan and China are expected to pass in first and second place.
Assuming that Korea advances to the Super Round in second place in Group B,
Japan and China in first and second place in Group A,
the national team will play the first Super Round match against China at 1 p.m. on the 5th.
And the second match of the super round will be played against Japan at 1 p.m. on the 6th.
This means that three consecutive daytime games will be played, starting with the final match against Thailand in the group stage.
Shaoxing, Zhejiang Province, where the game is held, is so hot that the temperature is close to 30 degrees.
Moreover, because the game starts at 12 noon local time,
players must wake up early in the morning to prepare for the game.
This is an unfavorable condition in terms of players’ physical strength management and conditioning.
It is highly likely that Korea will advance to the finals if it beats both China and Japan under adverse conditions.
On the other hand, Taiwan, which is expected to compete for the gold medal,
will play all of its games in the afternoon, starting from the super round.
Taiwan will prepare for the finals by playing the first match of the Super Round at 7:30 pm on the 5th and the second match at 7:30 pm on the 6th.
Korea must advance to the finals to avoid ‘scorching baseball’.
The finals will be held at 7 p.m. on the 7th, and the bronze medal match will be held at 1 p.m. on the 7th.
