 The KIA Tigers players spent a fearful time in the sky of the United States. 

KIA completed its first 24-day spring camp from the 1st at the Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona. It was scheduled to depart from Phoenix Airport on the 25th, Korean time, and arrive at Incheon Airport via Los Angeles International Airport. In Okinawa, it was planned to operate the second camp until March 8, focusing on actual combat. 

However, the local plane carrying the athletes suffered a dizzying situation when it failed to land at LA Airport. The aircraft made two attempts to land but failed. It was because of a snowstorm. Repeatedly landing and taking off, the team had to tremble in anxiety for 40 minutes inside the plane. Eventually, the captain turned around and made an emergency landing at a nearby airport. 메이저사이트

As a result, the KIA team failed to board from LA to Incheon. Due to the sudden failure of the landing, the front desk staff were sweating to find accommodations for the athletes and arrange transportation. We urgently searched for a flight, and the KIA team is scheduled to arrive in Incheon at 5:30 pm on the 26th, Korea time. 

The schedule for the second camp in Okinawa is also expected to change somewhat. In the first place, it was planned to conduct self-training on the 27th considering the time difference. Then, starting with the Hanwha game on the 28th, there are 5 games scheduled: Samsung game (March 1), Lotte game (3rd), Samsung game (5th), Hanwha game (7th). As the arrival in Okinawa is delayed by a day, the game against Hanwha on the 28th is unlikely to be held.  

The KIA team conducted camp in the United States for the first time in three years due to the corona crisis after the 2020 Florida spring camp. However, the weather in Arizona was chilly and there were frequent strong winds, which made training difficult. While trying to move to Japan after safely completing training in the United States, he encountered an unexpected bad weather ambush.
