For the pitch clock adaptation training, the umpires practiced measuring the timer by situation and communicating with the umpires in real time. 바카라사이트 For the ABS training, we trained on adapting radios and earphones and familiarizing ourselves with what to do in case of an error.
Considering the characteristics of both systems, which use electronic equipment, simulations were conducted as if they were actual matches to prevent delays due to equipment problems and communication errors.
The referee committee will continue to do its best to ensure fair and accurate game management.
