I have landed a job in Korea for the next 12 months.  I start work on 14 February.  

Opening day for the KBO is March 29 at Jamsil (Seoul), Munhuk (Incheon), Daegu (Daegu) and Sajik (Busan) and the season runs through until the middle of September.  I can probably make Sunday afternoon games in Seoul, Incheon and Daejeon from where I will be living. but it will probably make more sense to go for a Saturday evening game and stay overnight. The other stadiums in the south of the country will definitely require weekend-long trips.

Planning in detail will definitely have to wait until I get over there and get a sense of what my working life is going to be like, but I effectively have six months to get to the following stadiums:

  • Seoul – Doosan Bears, LG Twins Jamsil Baseball stadium;
  • Seoul - Nexen Heroes, Mokdong Baseball stadium (Yanheung-gu area of Seoul)
  • Incheon – SK Wyverns, Munhak baseball stadium
  • Daejeon – Hanwha Eagles, Daejeon baseball stadium
  • Gwangju – Kia Tigers, Mudeung Baseball stadium
  • Busan – Lotte Giants, Sajik Baseball stadium
  • Changwon – NC Dinos, Masan baseball stadium
  • Daegu – Samsung Lions, Daegu baseball stadium
  • Suwon – KT Wiz, Suwon Baseball Stadium (from 2015)

After my thoroughly enjoyable trip through the Liga Mexicana del Pacifico, I'm looking forward to stumbling over my currently non-existant but expected to soon be bad Korean, eating mystery foods, enjoying new baseball crowds and traditions and playing adventure traveller.

Would love some English-speaking company at a baseball game at any time.  Hit me up!
