Baseball Makes Return As Games Start Without Fans in South Korea

Two Seoul-based baseball teams suited up on Wednesday for a match inside an empty stadium, as sporting events remain closed to spectators amid coronavirus restrictions.

Footage shows the team going through all the regular motions, even a music-filled seventh-inning stretch, surrounded by a sea of vacant seats.

“The most important thing is the wellness and safety of the players and fans…We hope this coronavirus situation ends soon so that we can play baseball games with lots of fans. To care for safety, we are checking body temperature and following a sanitizing process,” said the public relations manager of the Doosan Bears, one of the competing clubs.

While training games are now taking place, the official start of the baseball league has been set for May 5.

South Korea has seen a sharp decline in its number of new cases, adding daily new cases in the low teens this week, and is not under a nationwide lockdown as many countries remain in Europe.
