Yeom Gal-ryang Determined Statement
Yeom Gal-ryang’s determined statement, “It was wrong to remove Dongdaemun Baseball Stadium, and baseball players should reflect on themselves.”
While the Seoul Metropolitan Government announced its plan for Jamsil Dome Stadium two days ago, LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop, who has to live in a rented room, left a bitter comment and talked about the baseball player’s reflection.
The Seoul Metropolitan Government announced its plan for Jamsil Dome Stadium on the 18th. The plan calls for creating a waterside ecological and cultural space linked to the Han River along with world-class Sports and MICE Complexes, including Dome Stadium in Jamsil.
According to the Seoul Metropolitan Government, the existing Jamsil Stadium will be demolished after the 2025 season and construction of the dome stadium will begin on the spot. It plans to complete the construction by the end of 2031.
The Seoul Metropolitan Government said, “As it is built in the form of a dome, it is possible to operate stably without being affected by bad weather such as rain and heat waves,” and added, “We plan to link baseball stadiums with hotels to provide exotic experiences in various hotel spaces such as rooms, restaurants, restaurants, and fitness.”
Before the announcement, KBO, Doosan and LG had requested to use Jamsil Main Stadium as a temporary stadium. It is in the same context that the Busan Metropolitan Government is also considering using a nearby Asiad Stadium as an alternative while building a new stadium in the position of Sajik Stadium. However, the Seoul Metropolitan Government objected due to safety concerns.
Therefore, Doosan and LG suddenly have to live in a rented room. It is said that one of Gocheok Sky Dome, Incheon SSG Landers Field, Mokdong Stadium, and Suwon KT Wiz Park is being used as temporary home stadiums.
It is embarrassing for Doosan and LG. Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “The most important thing is Doosan fans and LG fans. There should be no inconvenience for fans to watch baseball. There should be no inconvenience, and it is important to let them watch baseball in a good environment, he said. “This is the first issue that the city and the club must agree on.” We have to think of our fans first, he stressed.
In addition, “The opinion of the KBO and the club is to use the general stadium. There is a safety issue, but the general stadium should never be excluded, he said. “It is most convenient for fans to come right next to the place where they used to play.” Of course, safety issues are also important. This is a problem that the city and the club must solve. If the passage is narrow, you can make it wider, and you can make it more with construction. I don’t think this is difficult,” he reiterated.
With the announcement by the Seoul Metropolitan Government, Dongdaemun Baseball Stadium, which was the birthplace of Korean baseball, has disappeared to Jamsil Baseball Stadium. Dongdaemun Baseball Stadium was established in 1959 and demolished in 2006. It is also the place where the opening ceremony of professional baseball was held in 1983.
In particular, manager Yeom Kyung-yeop made his determined remarks, recalling the time of the demolition of Dongdaemun Baseball Stadium. Manager Yeom said, “It is the worst to get rid of Dongdaemun Baseball Stadium. It killed the commercial district of Dongdaemun. If Dongdaemun had a dome, it would have fully lived in the Dongdaemun commercial district. If you went to the hotel, it would have improved economically as foreigners came. “Isn’t 15,000 people pouring into Dongdaemun every day?” he said. 스포츠중계
“The baseball players should have moved, and the baseball association should have moved,” he said. After all, baseball players are stupid. We missed the right place. Baseball players did not demonstrate once when Dongdaemun Baseball Stadium disappeared. Everyone should have come together then. Baseball players should reflect on themselves,” he said.
