Technical support issues
LG has completed preparations for the Korean Series with an open blue and white battle. Third starter Lim Chan-gyu was in good condition. At the plate, rookie Kim Beom-seok, who is expected to be a right-handed pinch hitter, and starting center fielder Park Hae-min hit a home run.
On the 4th, the LG Twins played a blue-and-white match at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, divided into 'LG', the starting line-up, and 'Twins', focusing on backup members. The result was a 3-1 win for the main team. The LG team had 9 hits and 4 walks, and the Twins had 9 hits and 1 walk.
This is the last actual game and opportunity for final inspection ahead of the Korean Series of the '2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO Postseason', which will begin on the 7th. LG will rest on the 5th and then prepare for the Korean Series with a media day and training on the 6th.
LG, which finished the regular season with a game against the Doosan Bears on the 15th of last month, began preparations for the Korean Series starting with training camp at LG Champions Park in Icheon on the 19th. He maintained his performance through day and night training, and played four practice games against Cheongbaek and two against Sangmu, including the game on the 4th, to regain his sense of real-life performance.
The reason for holding the Blue and White match on the 4th as an open game is to indirectly feel the atmosphere of the Korean Series. Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop explained, "The first thing is the fans. There is an intention to play baseball in a stadium filled with fans, and it also means showing the fans how well we have prepared." He also said, “I think it will be helpful to experience the tension in advance because it is the last game, so playing with spectators will help.”
