KBO to Distribute Dust Masks to Protect Fans

Free surgical masks for the first 75,000 fans, brought to you by Fine Dust.

South Korea’s professional baseball league announced Wednesday that it will hand out masks to fans to protect them against dust that continues to blanket the nation.

The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) said it will distribute 75,000 masks to each of the league’s 10 clubs. A KBO official said the league will try to have the masks ready at the earliest possible date, though they may not be available on the first day of the new regular season on March 23.

In January, the KBO instituted a new rule to allow games to be canceled when air quality advisories are in place.

KBO’s game operations officials assigned to each stadium will have the option of calling off games when warnings related to fine dust concentrations have been issued. Such decisions will be made an hour before first pitch.
