The Korea Baseball Organization breathed a sigh of relief after a sick minor leaguer tested negative for the coronavirus. According to the Kiwoom Heroes betting news, a player from the team’s Futures League affiliate Goyang Heroes will be in quarantine for 14 days.
As a result of the COVID-19 scare, both Goyang and Kiwoom suspended their baseball activities Monday. However, they will resume training on Thursday. The player remained unidentified for the time being. He had a fever of 38.3 C when checked last Monday before entering the practice facility in Gyeonggi Province. He immediately went to a drive-through station for COVID-19 testing.
After news of the player’s test, Doosan Bears suspended their practice. The Bears’ minor league team shared the same chartered flight with Goyang and Kiwoom Heroes from Chinese Taipei last week. The sick player was on board the flight. Also, some Doosan Bears minor league players met the Doosan KBO players during their recent practice sessions.
Sick Minor Leaguer is Coronavirus-Free
According to betting pick experts, the KBO was nervous while waiting for the results of the test. It has already canceled the preseason and postponed the start of the regular season. The initial date of the start was on March 28. However, there’s no announcement yet for the new start of the season.
Based on Korean Sports Betting news, the KBO has more questions than answers with regards to the preventive measures against the coronavirus. It is the sentiment shared by the other sports leagues in South Korea.
The KBO hopes to start its season by the middle of April. Also, it plans to play all 144 games in a shortened schedule. Most KBO teams returned are back from their spring training overseas. However, there are no preseason games, and teams are practicing at out-of-town facilities or home parks.
