Baseball games in Korea
« on: October 26, 2011, 02:55:21 pm »
Hi guys,

Has anyone been to the baseball games in Korea?
Seemed real intense. I know that Baseball is most popular sports here, and that the Korean teams do real good. Can anyone share their experience if you have went before? :)

Season's just about over.  Can't believe you didn't know this seeing you understand everything about Korea.

I'm living in Incheon and going to see the SK Wyverns play is like my favourite thing to do!

The singing, the dancing, the questionable baseball strategy!!!!

The level of baseball is decent probably like double or triple A in the USA.. lots of bunting and stolen bases (along with failed bunts and caught stealings) and a few pop ups that find their way to the outfield grass... but generally its good and entertaining.

The fans get really into it and its a great atmosphere on the weekend especially!.. Plus you can bring in your own food/beer.

Highly recommended.

That being said... they are in the Korean Series now so getting a ticket + a seat (first come first serve for the most part) is a bit more difficult.

I've had similar experiences to the posters above. I'm not a fan of baseball but I love going to the games here. The atmosphere is what hooks me, plus you can get tickets for 10,000 won. What team do you live closest to? I'm a Doosan Bears fan due to proximity.
