Aaron Altherr and NC Dinos are ready for the Korean Series despite the very long layoff. The team hasn’t played a single game this month. However, they are preparing for the championship series that’ll start next week.
The NC Dinos finished in first place in the KBO regular season. Thus, they qualified for the Korean Series that will start on Tuesday. Their last regular-season match was October 31. Therefore, they need to take batting practices and play scrimmages to prepare for the KBO season’s most vital games.
Altherr is a center fielder and slugger of the team. He is not worried about the long layoff. Instead, Altherr thinks that the long rest is advantageous to the team. Although he is not used to having a long break before crucial games, he said that it was nice to have much-needed rest. It also made the team stronger.
Altherr and NC Dinos are Ready
According to sports betting reports, Altherr was one of the top players in home runs and RBIs during the regular season. He had 31 homers and 108 RBIs in 2020. Although the KBO delayed the start of the season by a month, teams played all 144 games. However, they had to scrap the All-Star Break to stay within schedule.
Also, teams had to play makeup games every Monday and doubleheaders to ensure the regular season ends in October. It also allows the KBO to start the postseason in November based on baseball and football betting sources.
According to online sports betting experts, teams that finished below NC Dinos have been fighting to stay in the playoffs since the start of the month. Some people said that they are in better sharp. However, the Dinos believe that their scrimmages and training will keep them in top shape during the Korean Series.
