Game 2 of KT-Hanwha DH resumes after 3 hours and 24 minutes, the longest in history

The second game of the doubleheader between the Hanwha Eagles and KT Wiz at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on Sunday was suspended for the longest time in history.

The game was suspended in the bottom of the fifth inning, with KT leading 3-1, due to heavy rain that poured down on the bases of the Hanwha offense.

The umpires, who said they would resume the game as soon as possible, 바카라사이트 went out on the field several times to check the rainfall conditions.

Eventually, the rain subsided and the umpires called for grounds maintenance to resume play.

However, it took much longer than expected to repair the soggy field.

Some fans got tired of waiting in the stands and turned back.

It was 9:57 p.m. when the game was declared to resume.

This was a whopping 204 minutes after the game was suspended at 6:33pm.

Since the inception of the KBO League, there has never been a game suspended and resumed for more than three hours.

The previous longest suspension was 116 minutes on August 15, 1987, also at Daejeon Stadium, during the Samsung-Binggrae game.

The referees waited more than three hours before forcing the game to resume due to the high number of rain cancellations this season.

The previous day, 85 matches had been canceled, the most ever.

The KBO rescheduled the canceled games on Aug. 29, but since then, another 19 games have been canceled, causing major disruptions to the overall schedule. 카지노사이트
