10 Professional Baseball Teams Return Home… Full-Fledged Preparations for the Exhibition Game on the 9th

The 10 professional baseball teams, who participated in winter training abroad for at least 12 days or as long as 30 days,

are returning to Korea one after another this week and preparing for exhibition games that will begin on the 9th.

First, the LG Twins and Hanwha Eagles return on the 4th,

and the NC Dinos and Lotte Giants arrive at Incheon Airport on the 5th. 파워볼

Kiwoom Heroes, KT Wiz, Doosan Bears, and KIA Tigers will fill the arrival hall in order on the 6th,

while Samsung Lions and SSG Landers will return home on the 7th.

Left-handed pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin, who signed the largest ever contract of 8 years and 17 billion won

with Hanwha and moved to the spring camp training facility in Okinawa Prefecture, Japan on the 23rd of last month,

pitched twice in the bullpen and once live pitched (like a real game with the batter set up) in 12 days.

Throwing are completed sequentially and return on the 4th to head to Daejeon.

As Ryu Hyun-jin returned to the KBO League after 12 years,

the attractions of his exhibition games became even richer.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who is scheduled to pitch for the regular season opening game against LG on the 23rd,

is about to complete his warm-up by pitching once in the Blue and White game,

a practice game, and twice in an exhibition game.

Naturally, Ryu Hyun-jin’s first exhibition game appearance also became a subject of interest.

The Automatic Ball Checking System (ABS), which will be introduced starting this year,

and the pitch clock, a pitch interval measurement system,

are elements that will catch the attention of fans in exhibition games.

ABS, also known as ‘robot umpire’, is a system in which cameras installed in the stadium track the pitcher’s ball trajectory and back,

and the machine judges strikes and balls.

The umpire behind the catcher receives the machine’s strike and ball decisions through earphones and relays them as is.

The KBO secretariat will expand the standard for the left and right sides of the strike zone by 2 cm on both sides of the home plate compared to the previous one,

and the upper and lower strike zone will be automatically set to 56.35% and 27.64% of the batter’s height, respectively.

The size of the base has been increased from 15 inches horizontally and vertically to 18 inches, and defensive shifts are also limited.

Teams with many players who are good at stealing bases and teams with many left-handed hitters are expected to benefit from the new system.

Another thing to pay attention to is the pitch clock,

which requires the pitcher to throw the ball within 15 seconds when there are no runners and within 20 seconds when there are runners.
