The “Seoul” of Baseball
September 6-11, 2023
Japan gets most of the attention when it comes to Asian baseball, but the Koreans do their best to be noticed. Players play with emotion and flare (bat flips galore!), feeding off their frenzied fans. And they have talent too, with one of the world’s best national teams and a steady stream of MLB-caliber players.
The Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) remains of of international baseball’s best-kept secrets. Come see for yourself while experiencing a world-class city that is rich in culture and history.
On this tour, we’ll keep our base in Seoul, permitting plenty of time for sightseeing, and attend games at three ballparks in the greater Seoul metropolitan area.
