KBO UMPIRE COMMITTEE CONDUCTS FIRST WINTER TRAINING IN PREPATION FOR PITCH CLOCK AND ROBOTIC UMPIRES

The Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) is holding winter training sessions to prepare for the introduction of a pitch clock and an automated ball-strike system (ABS), also known as “robot umpires,” starting in the 2024 season. The KBO secretariat announced that the umpire committee will hold its first winter training session at Doosan Bears Bears Park in Icheon, Gyeonggi Province, from Feb. 4 to 8. The pitch clock, which places a time limit on a pitcher’s pitches, will be practiced in situational timer measurement and real-time umpire communication.

Considering the characteristics of the two systems, which use electronic equipment, the training will be conducted as if it were an actual game to ensure that there are no delays in the game due to equipment problems and communication errors.” We will continue to check the system to ensure that the new systems, such as the pitch clock and 카지노사이트킹 ABS, are well established in the league,” the KBO said.
