Coach Yeom Kyeong-yeop said ahead of the opening game of the professional baseball exhibition game

against KT Wiz held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do on the 9th,

“I agree with the idea that the game time should be reduced,” and added,

“I ordered the players to follow the pitch clock as much as possible.”

Coach Yeom added, “The pitch clock will be officially introduced at some point,” and added,

“LG ​​prepared for it during the off-season. 온라인카지노

We will adhere to the pitch clock regulations starting from exhibition games.”

The pitch clock is a rule that places a time limit on the pitching or batting preparation process to reduce game time.

Pitch Clock

The pitcher must throw the ball within 23 seconds when there are runners on base and within 18 seconds when there are no runners on base.

Initially, the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) tried to introduce a pitch clock this season,

but due to opposition from some fielders,

they decided to run it on a trial basis until the first half of the year and then decide to introduce it in the second half of the year.

However, the pitch clock device installed in the stadium will operate normally from the exhibition game.

Additionally, the referee plans to give a verbal warning to players if they violate this rule.

Players may be concerned.

Teams are responding differently to pitch clock operation.

Some teams have ordered pitchers to throw the ball at their existing pace without worrying about the pitch clock.

This is because there is a risk of injury if you pay attention to the pitch clock and throw the ball at a fast tempo.

On the other hand, there are teams, like LG, that plan to adhere to the pitch clock starting from exhibition games.

Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “The most important thing is to show quality games to the fans,” and added,

“We decided to keep this from the exhibition games for the sake of the league’s development and the players’ quick adaptation.”

LG players seemed to have made a lot of preparations regarding pitch clock compliance.
