KBO held the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO Futures All-Star Game at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 14th.
The game was originally scheduled to start at 6:00 pm, but it started at 6:15, delayed by 15 minutes. It was because it had been raining heavily since the morning, so the ground had to be maintained.
In fact, the Little Baseball All-Star Game and the Women’s Baseball Home Run Race were set up as pre-events for All-Star Friday prior to the Futures All-Star Game that day, but had to be canceled due to rain. In addition, the one-point lesson for players, which was a pre-ceremony event, could not be held due to rain.
Fortunately, however, the rain stopped prior to the start of the Futures All-Star Game, allowing the game to begin at 6:15 p.m. After the game, an all-star home run race will be held as scheduled.
The Southern All-Stars on this day were Kim Byung-jun (left fielder) – Park Joo-chan (designated hitter) – Chun Seong-ho (third baseman) – Seo Dong-wook (catcher) – Koo Bon-hyeok (shortstop) – Park Han-gyeol (center fielder) – Kim Young-woong (1st baseman) – Han Seung-yeon (right fielder) – Jeong Dae-sun ( Second baseman) and starting pitcher Lee Seung-min formed the starting lineup.
Against this, the Northern All-Stars are Lee Joo-hyung (2nd baseman) – Kim Jeong-min (right fielder) – Yoo Ro-gyeol (center fielder) – Kim Beom-seok (designated hitter) – Park Chan-hyeok (1st baseman) – Ryu Hyo-seung (left fielder) – Heo Gwan-hoe (catcher) – Yang Kyung-shik (3 baseman) -The starting lineup consisted of Lee Min-jun (shortstop) and starting pitcher Kim Yu-seong.
On the other hand, some participating players were replaced before the game was held. SSG infielders Choi Yoo-bin and Kim Gun-woong, who were originally selected for the Northern All-Stars, dropped out due to injuries and other reasons, and Jeon Jin-woo and Kim Gun-yi joined instead.
