One. More. Day.

Baseball is back tomorrow! We’re so excited to finally get to watch our Redlegs again!

And where it’ll be incredible to have MLB baseball back, I’ve been enjoying the MLS is Back tournament so much. I’ve watched every match of the tournament either live or recorded or both. It’s been so much fun to watch. I’ve really looked forward to the matches with the 9am kickoffs every morning over the last couple of weeks. It’s been awesome to get ready for work and then be able to listen to a live soccer match while I settle in and start my workday. Today was the last day of the group stage play. And unfortunately, I think that means no more 9am kickoffs.

Now that the morning soccer matches are over, I’m probably going to go back to listening to the KBO baseball games as I start work each day. I’ve been missing my Doosan Bears baseball during the soccer tournament.

I’m really happy that sports are back. It makes the world feel a little more normal again. 😀⚾️⚽️🇰🇷📺❤️

All in on KBO.

I’ve really gone all in on the Korean Baseball games they’ve been playing on ESPN. Not having MLB baseball, or really sports in general, has been pretty annoying. And Korean Baseball is definitely filling the void. It’s been super fun to watch and learn about a new league that I’ve never been exposed to before.

The KBO games start ridiculously early, what with coming live from Korea and all. I set our YouTubeTV to record all of them. And then I listen to them while I’m working during the day. The KBO baseball has been pretty entertaining. The games are competitive. It’s been compared to a triple-A league here in the States. And for the most part, the games aren’t lacking in offense. There’s a lot of scoring. Because there is a lack of dominant, overpowering pitchers in the KBO.

I decided pretty early on that my KBO team would be the Doosan Bears from Seoul. I flirted briefly with making my team the NC Dinos. But I decided to go with the Bears because I love bears just a little bit more than I love dinosaurs. But it was really close.

I even ordered a Doosan Bears ballcap all the way from Korean…

If you haven’t been watching, the games are being played in empty stadiums because of the COVD-19 pandemic. In this morning’s KBO game live from Daejeon Hanbat Baseball Stadium, home of the Hanwha Eagles, every seat behind home plate was filled with donated stuffed animals

How awesome is that? The commentators said that the animals would all be donated to children’s charities. The more I watch the KBO, the more I like it. It’s the baseball we know and love with a uniquely Asian twist. And it’s pretty entertaining.

ESPN said they’ll be showing the rest of this season in its entirety, including the playoffs. I hope that the are more seasons of Korean baseball after this one. It’s darn pretty fun. And it’s great to have some baseball back in our lives. 😀⚾️🐻❤️
