‘Jamsil Dome…but wandering for 6 years’, a national hitter, hopes for Seoul city “Seoul is a special city… Please think of the fans before the players”

After hearing the news that a state-of-the-art dome stadium would be built in Jamsil, Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop requested that the city of Seoul build a fan-friendly baseball stadium.메이저놀이터 

On the 17th, Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon unveiled a plan to create a world-class ‘Sports and MICE Complex’ in Jamsil, including a 30,000-seat dome stadium. According to the Seoul Metropolitan Government, Jamsil’s new dome stadium is expected to begin in earnest after the end of the 2025 season. The plan is to dismantle the Jamsil Stadium currently in use and begin construction sequentially to be completed by the end of 2031. The cost is approximately 500 billion won, and the project will be handled by Seoul Smart MySpark (tentative name, lead manager Hanwha), the preferred negotiating party.

The problem is that Doosan and LG, which use Jamsil Stadium as their home for six years while the dome stadium is being built, must find temporary housing. The KBO, Doosan, and LG are all expressing their dismay because only the plan to build a dome stadium was announced without a suitable alternative. The most realistic alternative is to renovate Jamsil Main Stadium right next to the baseball stadium, but the Seoul Metropolitan Government expressed difficulty due to safety management reasons, and Mokdong Stadium, which is being used as an amateur stadium after the Heroes left, is not suitable for professional games. 

After hearing the news about the Jamsil Dome Stadium, coach Lee Seung-yeop asked the Seoul Metropolitan Government to build a fan-oriented baseball stadium, regardless of the controversy over renting rooms. Director Lee said, “I checked several articles, and the most important thing is the fans. Although we are in the position of playing baseball, people who come to watch should feel comfortable watching. You need to put everything else aside and watch the game in a good environment. “These days, spectator culture has matured and developed a lot, so we can’t help but be considerate of our fans,” he emphasized.

He continued, “Seoul in particular is a special city. Since a lot of away fans come up, we can’t just think about our Doosan fans. I think it would be good for them to play baseball in a comfortable situation and a place where it is easy to watch. “I hope the players will put it aside and think more about that,” he added. 

Meanwhile, Doosan, who meets NC ace Eric Peddy, is Soo-bin Jeong (center fielder), Jae-ho Kim (shortstop), Seok-hwan Yang (designated hitter), Eui-ji Yang (catcher), Jose Rojas (left fielder), Seung-ho Kang (first baseman), Joon-young Park (third baseman), and Gye-beom Park. (Second baseman) – Cho Soo-haeng (right fielder) formed the starting lineup. The starting pitcher is Jang Won-jun.

On this day, Doosan registered pitcher Choi Won-jun and outfielder Kim Dae-han, who recovered from a blister injury, and deleted pitcher Kwak Bin and outfielder Kim Tae-geun, who completed the final mock test for the Asian Games. 

Coach Lee said, “Kim Tae-geun hit the fence while playing defense in Gwangju and suffered a bruised knee. “It’s not a major injury, but it’s swollen, so he needs to rest this week.”
