Light speed drainage → It’s no longer a ‘tidal flat’… Landers Field has changed [Into the SS site]

 Incheon SSG Landers Field completely changed the ground. It’s good to be ‘new’. When the rain subsides, the water recedes like a lie. multiplied by the speed of light The complaints of the players, including Choo Shin-soo (41), worked.

It rained heavily throughout the country from the 4th to the 5th. The match between SSG and Lotte on the 4th also ended with a rain cold in the 7th, and the rain continued until the 5th. Since the drought continues, it can be called ‘sweet rain’. 안전놀이터

If you look only at baseball, it’s brutal rain. It is time to gain momentum after the opening. When it rains, fans tend to visit the site less often. In the case of the game on the 4th, although quite a lot of fans came to Landersfield, there were only 5,809 fans.

The aftermath lasts up to 5 days. At 4:00 p.m., the game was canceled. After 2pm, the rain started to lessen. It stopped altogether, then the drizzling rain fell. A large tarp was already laid on the infield ground. The outfield was soaked in rain.

In the old Landers Field, the outfield would have become almost a ‘tidal flat’. Choo Shin-soo said, “It is embarrassing to see the fans and opponents. We need change,” he stressed. Kim Kang-min also expressed regret, saying, “If you step in through the infield ground, a different world opens up.”

But this day was different. As a result, the game could not be held, but there was no ‘other world’ in the outfield. Drainage was so good. It is the result of hard work. SSG, together with Incheon City, carried out a complete replacement of the off-season ground.

The soil and grass in the infield and outfield were completely changed. The subfloor was also replaced. In addition, by collecting the opinions of the coaching staff and the players, artificial turf was installed and flattened in the outfield foul area. Everything is for performance.

As the construction is nearing the opening, it is a stage where the players have yet to fully adapt. In particular, infielders said, “The ball is fast. The bounds are also different from before. I guess I’ll have to watch it before it’s fully settled. We also have to adapt.”

Anyway, this is a matter of adaptation, so it takes time. The outfield grass drainage problem is a structural part. The muddy ground and grass made it difficult to play properly. Now that seems to have been resolved.

I went to the outfield ground around 2:10 pm when the rain had stopped. There was no ‘soggy’ part except for the water on the grass. The warning track also did not show a large pool of water. There were some pools of water, but they were soon drained.

At the site on the 4th, they said, “We have to see what it will look like after it rains.” It looks fine. Choo Shin-soo, who briefly met at the dugout, smiled slightly as he looked at the drizzling ground and said, “I think I can do it at this level.”
