A shanty town, three families living under one roof: “Shepherds can’t play night games”

“They can never play at night”.

To our delight, the Seoul Metropolitan Government has decided to build a dome ballpark in Jamsil. Mayor Oh Se-hoon traveled to San Diego, USA, to announce the plan. Starting in 2026, the current Jamsil Stadium will be demolished and construction will begin in its place. However, the completion date is 2032. The LG Twins and Doosan Bears, who shared a roof in Jamsil, will be living in three rooms somewhere for six years.소닉카지노

Currently, there are only two places to play baseball in Seoul. The first is the Gocheok Sky Dome, which was built in Gocheok-dong after the demolition of Dongdaemun Stadium. It is a bizarre dome ballpark that doesn’t look like a dome ballpark. Then there is the outdoor Mokdong Baseball Stadium. It used to be the home of the Nexen Heroes. However, Mokdong is virtually unavailable.

When a professional baseball game is played, there is inevitably shouting and cheering. There are also high-powered speakers blaring out cheering songs. Mokdong is a quiet housing complex with a high density of apartments. There are no recreational facilities nearby and the school district is excellent for education, so I’m sensitive to noise. If you add in the roar of the crowd, it becomes unbearable.

As a result, there are constant complaints from apartment residents. There are endless complaints to the ward office, city hall, and police station. An official from the Korea Baseball Organization said, “Even high school baseball can’t play at night because of complaints. Professional baseball has home games from three to six games. All of them are night games. You can never play baseball in Mokdong.”

If you can use Mokdong Baseball Field, you can share it with Gocheok Dome. But if you can’t play baseball in Mokdong, there’s only one option: Gocheok-dome. The Kiwoom Heroes have preempted the Gochukdome. With nowhere else to go, LG and Doosan have no choice but to use Gocheok-dome. That’s three teams using one ballpark in Choyu. They have to live in a shanty town for six years.

When one team plays at home, the other two teams have to travel. Scheduling is not easy. Players from all three teams would also have to share a locker room to prepare for games. It’s an inconvenience. Kiwoom players, who have been using the Gocheok Dome comfortably, are the most inconvenienced. In addition, fans who travel to Gocheok Dome to watch LG and Doosan games are also uncomfortable.

LG and Doosan see the Jamsil main stadium as an optimal location. It can be fully utilized by remodeling. Baseball people such as manager Yoon Kyung-yup are also strongly advocating for it. Seoul needs to find an alternative to prevent three teams in one stadium. The Seoul Metropolitan Government, which eliminated Dongdaemun Baseball Stadium, the mecca of Korean baseball, under Mayor Oh Se-hoon’s ‘Design Seoul’ campaign, should listen to the baseball community this time.
