1. Doosan Bears. Won 4, lost 1. Tuesday's game was rained out but otherwise Doosan continued their decent run of form and moved into the top 3 following LG's horror week. The only blip was Friday's loss at home to kt. What made that game interesting was seeing Yoo Hee-gwon pitch another 9 innings having… Continue reading KBO rankings. End of May

Doosan Bears. Won 4, lost 2. A difficult week on paper for Doosan facing the top 2, NC Dinos and Kia Tigers, but they'll be pretty happy with their total of 4 wins, especially as three came in the sweep of the leaders at the weekend.

Following that, the Twins swept their flatmates in very convincing fashion at a… Continue reading KBO rankings. First week of May.

They transferred that… Continue reading Seoul Gocheok Dome. In pictures.
This is our list of the 9 main ballparks in Korea.

What is it? The Gocheok Dome eventually opened in 2015 after 7 grueling years featuring revised structural plans, spiraling costs, a lack of interest from Doosan Bears and LG Twins and a decision not to restrict the stadium's use to just amateur players. Nexen Heroes eventually moved in for the start of the 2016 season following months (years?) of… Continue reading Gocheok Sky Dome
