During this beautiful summer here in South Korea we spent a happy Friday evening as well as a Saturday afternoon watching Incheon SK Wyverns at the Munhak Baseball Stadium. Baseball is massive here in South Korea and has the highest number of fans on average attending games than any sport. Korean Baseball Championship currently has 9 teams with SK Wyverns the only team based in Incheon, although there are 3 down the road in Seoul.
The Munhak Baseball Stadium hosts the Incheon SK Wyverns home games and is currently the 2nd largest baseball stadium in Korea. It is located just south of the center of Incheon and has it’s own Subway Station on the Incheon line.
We went to a Incheon vs. Hanwha Eagles double header with a game on the Friday evening and then another on the Saturday afternoon (there was also a Sunday game but that would have pushed it a little). Both games were enjoyable however the first one was a little better as Incheon won and scored a number of home runs in the first few innings. Beer, Sodas, Fast Food and Snacks were all easily available reasonably priced.
Tickets cost ₩9,000 each and they were the cheapest on offer, if you buy in advance or use coupons they can be even cheaper.

We will try to do a more detailed post about the Incheon SK Wyverns baseball team in the future. Also if you’re interested here are a few other related Modern Seoul posts:

I am a big baseball fan here in the U.S. and I have a hobby called “ball hawking” in which I go to a bunch of MLB games and try to catch as many baseballs as I can during batting practice and the game.
Currently, I am trying to get my hands on a ball from every sports league around the World by just trading one of my MLB baseballs.
So my question to you is, by chance, do you know anyway in South Korea who has a couple official Korea Professional Baseball balls that would be willing to trade?
At the least, is there any way I could see a picture of one?
Thank you for any help you can give me!
Sadly we don’t have any KBO or KBL balls, although we go and watch a few games a season we don’t play.
Strangely MLB balls are easier to find here, basically in every big department store.
We’ll look and see if we can find a picture of one.
GMarket is also worth looking into there maybe some for sale there.
Sorry we can’t help more, good luck in your search.
