Thailand, which won all two games of the preliminary round, was placed in Group B and will face Korea, Hong Kong, and Chinese Taipei in the finals.
With this, Korea’s final match-up has been decided. Korea will play its first game against Hong Kong on October 1st at 7:30 p.m. and then play its second game against Chinese Taipei on October 2nd at the same time.
Then, on October 3rd, the final match of Group B will be played against Thailand at 1pm.
Laos, which achieved a dramatic first win by defeating Singapore in the preliminary round, will face Japan, China, and the Philippines in Group A. Laos is a country where baseball was popularized under the leadership of former SK Wyverns coach Lee Man-soo.
In this tournament, if you finish in second place in the group stage, you will enter the super round with the top two teams in Group A. In the super round, the team starts with a record against the country that was in the same group in the group stage, and then competes against the countries in Group A.
Group A includes China, Japan, and the Philippines, so it is highly likely that Japan and China will advance.
In the Super Round, the top 1 and 2 teams will play in the gold medal match, and the 3rd and 4th place teams will play in the bronze medal match. The gold medal match, which will determine whether or not the team will win for the fourth time in a row, will be held on October 7.
Meanwhile, the baseball team led by coach Ryu Joong-il left the country the day before and arrived in Hangzhou, China, the site of the final match. Since the baseball game is held in Shaoxing, a city near Hangzhou, the national team stays in a separate athlete village.
Starting today, the national team will undergo official training locally and adjust their condition.
