Attention is focusing on what kind of team the two teams’ practice partners will be ahead of the official opening game of the Major League Baseball (MLB) between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul from March 20th to 21st next year.헤라카지노
The two teams have yet to decide their schedules in Korea, but they are expected to board their flight to Seoul immediately after the exhibition game on March 14. Chances are high that they will complete their jet lag for two days after arriving in Seoul and hold practice games twice per team between March 18 and 19. The two teams will return to the U.S. immediately after the opening game and play again in exhibition games from March 25.
The KBO (Korea Baseball Organization) secretariat will decide on the schedule of exhibition games with the partners of the two teams’ practice games, taking into account the stadium and the opening day of the KBO League regular league from various angles. However, as the MLB Seoul opening game is held just before the KBO League regular league opening game (March 23), three teams based in Seoul, the LG Twins, Doosan Bears, and Kiwoom Heroes, are mentioned as promising sparring opponents between the Dodgers and San Diego. In particular, if Kiwoom becomes San Diego’s sparring partner, Kim Ha-sung will be seen facing his home country’s former team.
There is a high possibility that the new national baseball team will compete with the two teams. The KBO secretariat, which operates and supports the national baseball team at international competitions involving professional players, plans to appoint a new full-time coach to lead the national team at the Premier 12 and World Baseball Classic (WBC) soon. If the warm-up match between the new national baseball team and the two teams is held, the new coach will make his debut in a practice game against the Dodgers, where Shohei Ohtani, the most expensive player in world sports history, will be the designated hitter, and San Diego, Kim Ha-sung’s team.
KBO is reportedly considering a positive evaluation match between the national team and the two teams, judging that it is a good opportunity to raise interest in the new baseball team, which will first raise the anchor with the goal of the Premier 12 in November 2024 and the 6th WBC in 2026.
