Daegu Stadium

On Saturday David and I went to a baseball game in Daegu with all of the other teacher’s at CEV. The Samsung Lions were playing Doosan Bears. It was a good game. The atmosphere was fantastic. There were cheerleaders, both men and women, cute mascots and everything was incredibly cheap. The tickets cost 8,000 won and you can take your own food and drink into the stadium. Even if you wanted to buy refreshments inside, it is all reasonably priced.

While the Busan Lotte Giants may be one of Korea’s worst baseball teams this year, I had to visit my old hometown for a game this season. Huge loss, but worth it to see my friends and craft some Komodo-dragon-looking garbage bags around our heads.


Lotte Giants Schedule 2013 (from Busan Awesome)

Scroll down to see schedule!

One of THE BEST things to do in Busan is to go to a Lotte Giants game. Busan loves the Lotte Giants and it’s clear when you go to the games – fans are loud – singing, cheering, and drinking throughout the game. It’s a breath of fresh air after the lethargic crowds at Cincinnati Reds games that I’ve been to over the past 20 years.


2012 Asia Series Game!

The 2012 Asia Series kicked off this week, with the best baseball teams from all of the major Asian leagues, along with the winner from Australia, competing to see who's the BEST in Asia!  Our friend Jinho's sister gave him some FREE tickets to the game, so he invited Aaron, me, Gill, Sam, Crystal and his girlfriend Anne to go to the game today!  FREE baseball tickets with some of my favorite friends?! "YEP! I'm in!"  
Definitely don't have to ask this girl twice!

For the Love of the Game….

When I was 6 years old, I suited up for my first little league baseball game. I’ll never forget it. My jersey was green with white trim on the collar and sleeves. My number was 6 and there was absolutely nothing better to me than getting my pants as covered in dirt as humanly possible. Win or lose, playing baseball was a time in my childhood that I will never forget.


A Day at Sajik Stadum – Lotte Giants Baseball


Baseball Gear

Among the best experiences we’ve had in Busan have been our visits to Sajik Stadium to watch the Giants. Any American baseball fan who’s ever complained about their team’s high ticket prices, expensive food and drink, or paltry attendance, should definitely pencil in a day at the park while in Busan. This is the stadium experience perfected.


Born in the USA… Perfected in Korea?

Baseball Top Ten: How Busan Does America's Game

Our first adventure to Sajik Stadium was just that, an adventure. The songs, the food, the cheers, and the pageantry were all on display. Here's my top ten list of things that make Korean professional baseball (Busan Lotte Giants specifically) great.

home run balls

I thought you could not get more American than baseball but turns out Asia really knows how to do baseball right! A lively crowd, sexy "cheerleader"/dancers, and you can bring in anything you want including fried chicken, beer, and snacks from a convenience store (but you can also buy all that there, for basically the same price as on the outside - no robbery from the stadium trying to get more of your money after you already bought overpriced tickets.)

Busan makes me love baseball. The kimbop, the cheap Korean beer, and happy fans make it all worth it. Sadly, the weather is a pain. It’s either blisteringly cold (wind), raining, or really hot and humid. Huuuurrrrrr!


well rounded.

I cannot drink alcohol for a month (don't really want to either, only 4 months left and still so much left to do!) so I have been filling my weekends with plays, festivals, dinners, shopping and sightseeing. Last weekend was the Vagina Monologues, (which I had never seen and it was amazing) and this weekend a friend is starring in Macbeth in Myeongdong so we will spend our Saturday night getting a little culture. The cherry blossoms are in full bloom now so Sunday will be spent outside on Yeoi-do (do=island, this being a small one in the middle of the Han river, connected on the subway line) enjoying the trees and fresh air.. or nuclear fallout from Japan, whatever.

Did nationalism cost Korea the WBC title against Japan?

The buzz making the rounds in the baseball world following Korea's 10th inning loss to Japan in the WBC, is whether Korean nationalism superceded sound baseball strategy.Purely from a baseball perspective Korea's approach in pitching to Ichiro Suzuki, one of the worlds premiere hitters, looked a bit, well, either naive or nationalistic. Like a manager more concerned with losing face than losing
