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

Munhak Baseball Stadium is much-loved, and it is easy to see why!

There is a highway from Incheon Airport that veers south before Seoul and eventually plants drivers and passengers to a small outpost on the border with Gyeonggi Province called Seoksu. As you make your way further from the airport and away from the new towns scaring the Incheon skyline, there is a stretch of road… Continue reading Munhak Baseball Stadium is much-loved, and it is easy to see why!

KBO observations from the last week of June.

1. A week of mixed emotions I love baseball. I only got into the sport when I moved to Korea in 2009. Before then, my knowledge of the game was virtually non-existent. But last week's LG v Lotte series in Busan tested the patience a little. Not so much in baseball, but in the KBO.… Continue reading KBO observations from the last week of June.

KBO observations form the 3rd week of June.

1. Doosan v NC had just about everything. Riding the bus home on Sunday night in the Jamsil area, I saw plenty of young Doosan fans passed out in the arms of their parents. And who can blame them? The meeting of 3rd v 2nd was as close to a rollercoaster ride as you'll ever… Continue reading KBO observations form the 3rd week of June.
