The Korea Baseball Organization, the highest level of baseball in South Korea and one of the first major professional sports leagues to return to action during the coronavirus pandemic, has entered its home stretch as the Korean Series will determine the 2020 KBO champion.
The matchup features the NC Dinos, who charged out of the gate and sat atop the league for most of the season, facing the Doosan Bears, the defending Korean Series champs who beat the LG Twins in the first round of the playoffs and KT Wiz in the semifinals.
For those just getting familiar with the Korean baseball league, it’s action-packed baseball filled with home runs, bat flips (lots and lots of bat flips), former MLB players and Korean-born stars who could follow the path of Hyun-Jin Ryu and Ji-Man Choi from the KBO to major league stardom.
You can watch the action with English-language broadcasts airing on ESPN2, or streaming on ESPN3 and the ESPN app.
