At the World Baseball Classic held right before the season began, the Korean national team was eliminated in the first round due to poor performance.토토사이트

In addition, various scandals broke out one after another, and professional baseball this season started in a heavy atmosphere.

However, the steps to find the baseball field continued in line with the atmosphere of the Corona 19 endemic, with all five games before the opening attracting full crowds.

The number of spectators increased by 33% compared to last year, exceeding 4 million spectators at the fourth fastest pace ever, and expectations for breaking through 8 million spectators in 5 years are growing.

It is interpreted that the success of the professional baseball box office played a part in the fierce competition for rankings that could not be foreseen.

At the halfway point of the season, LG, which is aiming to win the regular league for the first time in 29 years, is leading, and SSG is chasing with a difference of two and a half games.

Then, the difference between Doosan in 3rd place and Kiwoom in 9th place is only 7 games.

The mid-table leaderboard fluctuated, as shown by Doosan, who started July in 6th place and finished the first half in 3rd place with a 10-game winning streak.

<Min Hoon-gi / SPOTV Commentator> “I think that the second half will be a great match more than the first half. With Doosan, KIA, KT, and Hanwha starting out with a variety of starters, these teams are on the verge of winning and rising, so the mid-ranking match is probably not going to happen. Maybe we’ll go to the end…”

Professional baseball will take a break until the 20th after the All-Star Game at Sajik Stadium in Busan.

Then, starting with three consecutive matches on the weekend of the 21st, we will enter the second half schedule.
