Remember that time during the start of the pandemic when sports were no longer a thing? The airwaves went silent as baseball’s season was delayed, and basketball/hockey frantically tried to return to play and crown a champion.
There was one sport that helped pass the time and became popular in America, however: Korean Baseball. One of the first sports to return to play, Korean Baseball was broadcasted on ESPN and was well viewed by fans missing the MLB. The KBO was one of the first leagues to hit the field once again and are now on the cusp of naming a champion.

Online bookmaker 10Bet has the Bears at -130 on the Money Line.
The Doosan Bears and NC Dinos are attempting to win the KBO Championship this season. Tied at two games apiece, the Bears and Dinos are looking for an advantage in game 5.
On the bump for NC tomorrow will be Chang Mo Koo. The lefty is 9-0 on the season with a 1.74 ERA. Koo has shown great poise as a 23-year-old. He has been challenged this season on the mound but has not taken an L so far.
Opposing Koo will be Chris Flexen. Flexen is 8-4 this season with a 3.01 ERA. This is Flexen’s first season in the KBO as he was a former pitcher for the New York Mets.
Min-woo Park was one of the top hitters in the league this season. He finished the year with a .345 batting average, which was good for 4th in the KBO. Right behind him was Jose Fernandez of Doosan, who batted .340 and had 199 hits.
NC finished first in the KBO standings and are taking on Doosan, who finished 5 games back of the Dinos. Both teams search for an advantage in a pivotal game 5.
