Baseball
무등야구장 Mudeung Baseball Stadium, 광주 Gwangju, 한국 Korea
So I have done it! I have been to see all eight Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) teams play at home in a single season. It is late in the season and the KIA Tigers (기아 타이거즈) were Number 1. They attracted a big crowd to the small stadium (a mere 13,400 seats) and the souvenir trailer (yes, not a proper store) was attracting a lot of fans. I collect baseballs and have bought a baseball from every stadium across Korea for every team (well, except for the Heroes in Seoul, which only had a generic KBO ball). To my disappointment, however, they were sold out of KIA Tigers baseballs... I got a nice jersey instead. I shall return next season for that baseball!
