With the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres hosting the Major League Baseball opening series in South Korea next year, interest among Korean baseball fans is growing, according to Japanese media.
Japan’s Number Web reported on Friday that Korean fans may be able to see Shohei Ohtani in person at the Dodgers-San Diego game. However, it explained that this is only possible if Ohtani joins the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are the most recognisable of the major league teams among Korean fans, the outlet noted, with national stars Park Chan-ho and Ryu Hyun-jin. Considering that they still have the most stars in the majors, including Clayton Kershaw, Mookie Betts, and Freddie Freeman, next year’s series could be a “luxury feast” for Korean baseball fans.
San Diego also has a number of superstars, including Kim Ha-seong, Darvish Yu, Manny Machado, and Tatis Jr.
However, they pointed out that the capacity of the Gocheok Sky Dome, where the series will be held, is only 17,000, and they expected fierce competition for tickets among Korean baseball fans.바카라사이트
Ticket prices for the last Major League Baseball game at the Tokyo Dome in 2019 ranged from 40,000 to 40,000 yen (about $36,000 to $360,000), but he predicted that ticket prices for the Korean Series would likely be higher.
He also said that if Ohtani plays for the Dodgers, many Japanese baseball fans from the neighbouring country will visit Korea.
