KBO to Begin May 5

The Korean Baseball Organization will start their season on May 5. The exhibition season has been expanded from four games to seven to give the Korean teams more opportunities to have their pitchers get some innings. It is unclear whether the full 144 game schedule will be played. That depends on if there are COVID-12 cases that involve players during the season.

The plan is for the season to end November 2. The post season will start two days later and end on November 28. The post season games will all be held in the only domed stadium in Korea, Gocheok Skydome in Seoul. The first round of the post season games will be reduced from a best of five to a best of three.

The games will be played with no fans, but cheerleaders will be allowed at the games. Doubleheaders and Monday games will be played to make up for rainouts. Normally, the KBO schedules rainouts at the end of their schedule.
