Baseball ‘hot’ this season… 4 million fans in 4th fewest games on record

Professional baseball has surpassed 4 million fans this season in the fourth-fewest games ever.

According to the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO), 9512 fans attended the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League game between SSG and Kiwoom at 2 p.m. at the Gocheok SkyDome in Seoul. With this game, the KBO surpassed 4 million fans this season.

Later in the day, 20,959 people attended the Jamsil (KIA-LG) game at 5 p.m., 12,395 people attended the Daegu (Hanwha-Samsung) game, 5406 people attended the Suwon (NC-KT) game, and 7588 people attended the Ulsan (Doosan-LOTTE) game. With 364 games played so far this season, the KBO has accumulated 4.041 million fans.

This is the fourth time the league has surpassed the 4 million mark after 2018 (328 games), 2016 (334 games), and 2017 (341 games). A perennial bottom-feeder rebellion and a tight race at the top of the standings are among the reasons for this season’s success.먹튀검증

Lotte, which finished last season in eighth place, has made a splash by taking the top spot early in the season. Hanwha recently won eight straight games for the first time in 18 years. LG and SSG have been battling it out for the top spot.

In fact, according to KBO statistics released on Jan. 1, the average attendance for professional baseball this season is 11,118, up 32 percent from last year’s 8,426.
