How did your team fare? Here’s our club-by-club summary in 50 words.

So, goodbye 2017 KBO regular season. You were very good, sometimes amazing, and often frustrating. The final day might have been a bit anti-climatic but this was the closest pennant race in history and even up to 6pm, we didn't know for sure who'd be playing SK Wyverns in the wild card game. It started… Continue reading How did your team fare? Here’s our club-by-club summary in 50 words.

Only three things in life are certain: birth, deaths, and a KIA Tigers bullpen meltdown

The first mini series of the week is over, and now we head for the Thursday and Friday collection as the season's end gets closer and closer. If there were no rain outs, these were due to be the final midweek regular season games of 2017. Alas, on we power, to October 3rd. That's when… Continue reading Only three things in life are certain: birth, deaths, and a KIA Tigers bullpen meltdown

This season is wide open, and it is likely to be for years to come.

Long before you break down the performance of every team in the 2017 KBO season, and how they've fared against each other, one stat jumps off the page when you're looking at the current standings. That is how many teams have winning percentages above .500. The number currently stands at 7. There are 10 teams… Continue reading This season is wide open, and it is likely to be for years to come.

Time is running out to see the Lion King one more time.

One of South Korea's most decorated (and loved) baseball players has entered his final September as a pro. Lee Seung-yeop of the Samsung Lions is retiring at the end of this season, bringing down the curtain on a glittering career. Lee's beloved Lions have struggled all year and won't be playing playoff baseball. So, this… Continue reading Time is running out to see the Lion King one more time.

Son A-Seop Joins KBO 20-20 Club And Eyes Possible 200-Hit Season

After a dismal start to August, many would be forgiven for prematurely calling curtains on the Lotte Giants' season. The first series in August saw the Giants swept in Jamsil by fellow playoff hopefuls, the LG Twins, and stranded in seventh place in the KBO standings, 17 games behind first placed KIA Tigers, and 6 games… Continue reading Son A-Seop Joins KBO 20-20 Club And Eyes Possible 200-Hit Season

Kia meet Doosan and Lotte host NC. Is this the league’s defining week?

On episode 21 of Grand Slam KBO, it was put to Yonhap's Jeeho Yoo that the 2017 season is much more exciting than we could have imagined. Korea was, don't forget, rebounding from a miserable WBC when Israel and the Netherlands stormed the Gocheok Dome and national team suffered an early, embarrassing exit. Six months… Continue reading Kia meet Doosan and Lotte host NC. Is this the league’s defining week?

An Chi-hong’s dip in form has gone under the radar, but the Tigers should be worried.

When you look at his 2017 stats to date, it seems ludicrous to even pinpoint second baseman An Chi-hong as a ticking time bomb in Kia Tigers' season. The league leaders are without a recognised closer (Friday night in Suwon confirmed this), a reliable bullpen arm and possess two catchers who, despite showing promising early… Continue reading An Chi-hong’s dip in form has gone under the radar, but the Tigers should be worried.

The NC Dinos make the most of the All-Star break.

Twenty fours before the 2017 All-Star event got under way at Daegu's Samsung Lions Park, the NC Dinos exited Champions Field with heads bowed. The Kia Tigers had just wrapped up a dominating sweep, recording a comfortable 7-1 win to stretch their lead at the top to a seemingly unassailable eight games*. Wednesday's collapse was… Continue reading The NC Dinos make the most of the All-Star break.

Teething Problems With KBO’s New Instant Replay System

Following Major League Baseball's implementation of instant replay technology in 2008, and it's subsequent upgrade to the modern day system in 2014, many other countries have followed suit in an effort to improve their domestic leagues. When asked for his opinion on video replay technology before his 5000th game, MLB umpire Joe West said to… Continue reading Teething Problems With KBO’s New Instant Replay System
