Korea to Call Games Because of Fine Dust

The KBO will now call games not just because of rain but because of pollution. The calculation gets very complex, way beyond myworld’s level of understanding but if “the level of particles 2.5 to 10 micrometers in diameter (PM-10) is expected to exceed 300 micrograms per cubic meter (㎍/㎥) for more than two hours. For ultra fine dust, or particles smaller than 2.5 micrometers in diameter, (PM-2.5), the warning is put in place when the level is expected to remain over 150㎍/㎥ for longer than two hours”. Myworld will leave it to the experts to make that call.

The call to cancel the game will be made one hour before the first pitch. It is not clear what happens if the dust particles reach that level while the game is in play. Fine dust issues caused the cancellation of three games that were supposed to be played on April 6, 2018.
