The 36th season of the KBO Futures League begins in April , 2017. The KBO (Korea Baseball Organization) oversees both the lower level Futures League and Korea Professional Baseball, consisting of 10 franchises and a crazy following among citizens.
The Korea Baseball League is the minor league in South Korea. The Korea Baseball Organization teams have one farm team each in the league and there are also a couple teams not affiliated with any of the KBO clubs, including a team representing the Korean military police. Players can appear on that team in lieu of regular mandatory military service.
Though a baseball game typically lasts more than two hours, there are so many side events going on during Korean baseball games that you'll never be bored, even if you aren't a fan of the sport. The infield bleachers near the first and third baselines are always in an uproar as each team's fans boisterously root for their team following the chants of their cheerleaders and hype-man.
Also, every Monday is an off day for the league and no game is allowed to go past 12 innings. There’s also an All-Star game that takes place in mid-July and the season ends with a 4-team playoff to decide the championship. But the more interesting aspect is definitely the stadium experience.
There are eight stadiums (one of which is home to two teams) and they range in sizes and amenities.
Baseball bettors can catch baseball games on TV just like in any other place, but there are also some pretty interesting differences you’ll find with Korean baseball compared to other countries.

Sports-wise, baseball is probably the second most popular sport in the country, after soccer.
Korea’s baseball roots can be traced back to the early 20th century and the missionary treks throughout Asia. The sport became an official professional league in 1982, when the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) formed the Korea Professional Baseball league (KPB). The KBO also formed the Futures League, which acts as the KPB’s minor league system.
In 2012, the number of baseball fans flocking to the stadiums made headlines by surpassing 7 million.
The league started with six teams and added a 10th team, to debut in 2015. The teams are located all over South Korea, with three in the Seoul (South Korea’s capital) metropolitan area and another not too far in Incheon (a sister city 20 miles west of Seoul).
A total of 144 games will be played this season between the 10 Korea Professional Baseball franchises.
The ten teams currently playing are the SK Wyverns (Incheon), Doosan Bears (Seoul), LG Twins (Seoul), Nexen Heroes (Seoul), Lotte Giants (Busan), Hanwha Eagles (Daejeon), Kia Tigers (Gwangju), Samsung Lions (Daegu), NC Dinos and added the KT Wiz in 2015.
In the past, online baseball bettors have tried to place a bet on a baseball game, only to find out that the first pitch was a few minutes ago?
This is when those baseball bettors were informed by the online sportsbook clerk that there’s "No Action" once the game starts, and you’ll just have to pick a later game or wait until next day to get your baseball bets inn.
However, online sportsbooks have revolutionized the gambling world by adding live and in-play baseball betting to the menu of options available to bettors.
Live betting and in-play betting allows baseball bettors to make the same baseball bets that they’d be able to make before the game starts, with the added knowledge of seeing part of the game take place before they put their money down. Continue
