There are 8 teams in Korea. LG Twins, Doosan Bears, Samsung Lions, SK Myverns, etc, all of which are owned by the large Korean corporations...in case those names didn't ring a bell to you.
The Doosan Bears are our local team...with their stadium in the Jamsil Olympic Park, just about 6km from our house. So, we joined some friends and decided to cheer on our local team.
Great things about Korean Baseball games:
1) tickets are only $8-$12 for good seats
2) stadiums are completely accessible (as is everything else) from the subway, so no worries about drinking and driving
3) no ridiculously priced food or beer...beer $3, kimbab $3, ice cream bar $1.50, KFC family pack $6 or any other Korean food...priceless that you can actually afford to take your family to a baseball game and have a few drinks and without breaking the bank!!
4) choreographed dancers!
5) sing-alongs in Korean to American music (like "Surfin USA, etc)
|Yes, this guy is selling beer from a keg on his back...and|
it is only $3.
We'll be back to support our local Doosan Bears...although I hear they aren't doing so well this season!
