While in Seoul last week I checked out a Korean Baseball League game between the LG Twins and the Kia Tigers.
It was, hands down, one of the coolest sports fan experiences of my life. A few highlights:
-Every player gets his own at bat song, which is sung by the entire stadium;
-Each team has its own cheerleaders (dancers and yell leaders), and drummers;
-The scoreboard is almost completely in Korean, except for assorted things like the position abbreviations (e.g. LF);
-The main concessions are beer and fried chicken. Check!
-Most teams share a name with an MLB team, but the city is replaced by a leading Korean company, e.g. the Kia Tigers
-The kiss cam is even more awkward than in the US.
-I scalped a ticket for $12. Only afterwards did I realize I have no idea if that's illegal in Korea or not. But I made it out!
Go LG Twins!
