“I grew up right next to where Munhak Stadium is. I grew up within walking distance of it. There were just some mountains and yards. Nothing there. I wouldn’t call them an Incheon team, a true Incheon. I’m sure there are fans out there like myself who have been watching Incheon baseball all these years, we don’t really embrace the SK Wyverns as a true Incheon team.”
Jeeho Yoo of Yonhap News Agency joins us for an extended chat on episode 21 of GSKBO. Jeeho traces the history of baseball in Incheon and why he has a “soft spot” for the Nexen Heroes.
Jeeho also talked about the future of several Korean players in Major League Baseball, why Nexen’s Kim Ha-Seong is “so exciting” and his predictions for the 2017 KBO season.
