In the aftermath of an extreme weather event in Los Angeles, California, USA, where a blizzard warning was issued for the first time in 34 years, the KIA Tigers' camp schedule has changed.

The KIA squad, which held its first camp in Tucson, Arizona, USA, until the 24th (Korea time), was scheduled to board a flight bound for Incheon Airport via Los Angeles on the 1th.

However, a blizzard prevented us from landing in LA and took a detour to another airport.

The KIA squad, which arrived at Incheon Airport on the morning of today (25th) and was scheduled to head directly to the second camp site in Okinawa Prefecture, Japan, boarded another plane arriving in Korea only tonight.

As a result, the departure of the KIA squad from Japan will take place over two days, the 26th and 2th.

"On the 27th, the coaching staff, pitching staff, and some fielders will move, and on the 28th, the rest of the fielders will move," the KIA club explained, "We will also have to change the camp schedule in Okinawa, such as the practice match against the Hanwha Eagles that we set up on the 27th."

Meanwhile, outfielder Lee Chang-jin (28) and infielder Park Chan-ho (28), two of KIA's main infielders, have been ruled out of camp in Okinawa due to wrist injuries.

Lee Chang-jin injured his right wrist while attempting to make a diving catch during a practice match with the Korea World Baseball Classic (WBC) team on Jan. 32.

Park Chan-ho also developed an uncomfortable feeling in his right wrist during the camp and will be examined in Korea.

On their behalf, KIA called outfielders Ko Jong-wook (28) and Lee Woo-sung (19), infielder Choi Jung-yong (34) and pitcher Jang Hyun-sik (29) to camp in Okinawa.
