Ryu Joong-il has only one win left until his fourth consecutive Asian Games victory. The opponent is difficult Taiwan, but South Korea, which suffered a painful defeat in the group qualifying round, took the opportunity to avenge and win at the same time.
The Korean national baseball team, led by head coach Ryu Joong-il, will play the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games baseball final against Taiwan at 7 p.m. on the 7th (Korea time) at the first stadium of the Saoxing Baseball and Softball Sports Center in China.
South Korea, which was on the brink of losing to Taiwan in the group stage, advanced to the final by defeating Japan and China in the Super Round. Taiwan’s catch of China in the Super Round also served as a positive factor in erasing South Korea’s “number of cases.”
Coach Ryu, who took the final stage after a lot of hard work, said, “I came to the final with difficulty. “I will definitely win Taiwan and win the gold medal,” he said, expressing his short and bold determination.
Ryu Joong-il, who played both Super Round 2 games as daytime games, will play the final game again as night games. There is no awkwardness because it was a night game against Hong Kong on the 1st and Taiwan on the 2nd, but you should pay attention to the changed environment as you come back to the night game after playing the day game.
Weather can also be a variable. The match between Taiwan and Japan, which was held at 6:30 p.m. local time on the 6th, was suspended due to sudden heavy rain in the 6th inning, but the decision was finally made on the rainfall call game (Japan 2-0 win). On the 7th, when the final will be held, the weather in the Saoxing area is currently cloudy and light rain.
If the final between Korea and Taiwan cannot be held due to rain, what will be the future schedule. 토토사이트
An official from the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) explained, “If the game on the 7th becomes impossible to proceed due to rain, the regulation states that the game can be played on the 8th, a day later.” It’s postponed for a day.
What if we can’t play on the 8th. At that time, Taiwan, which won over South Korea according to the winner’s principle, will win the gold medal. Ryu Joong-il is a scenario he doesn’t want to imagine.
In the end, it is best to proceed with the game normally on the 7th, the scheduled date. According to the original schedule, Ryu Joong-il will return home through Incheon International Airport on the afternoon of the 8th after the final match on the 7th.
