MLB is growing.
With games taking place in London and in Mexico, the game is ever evolving.
In fact, there may be a fun plan in the works with the KBO.
Yesterday, KBO commissioner Heo Koo-Youn met with MLB’s senior vice president of international affairs, Jim Small.
The two met in Seoul on Wednesday and reportedly discussed a plan that would help grow both MLB and the KBO.
One of the topics that was discussed between the two was having Korea host some MLB Opening Day games, as well as the possibility of the United States hosting some KBO Opening Day Games.

Opening Day In Korea?
This is an exciting development, and it’s just another great way to potentially grow the game even further.
Again, they’ve already expanded to London and Mexico, with previous games being hosted in Japan and Australia.
This is an exciting opportunity for the game of baseball to expand and generate some more interest across the globe.
Imagine teams opening up the season in KBO stadiums in Korea and KBO teams opening up in big-league ballparks here in the U.S.
It would be a fun way to create a sort of partnership between the two leagues and get some more people around the globe to tune in and experience baseball like they have never experienced it.
Baseball has always been considered America’s Pastime.
It’s very popular in Korea too.
The game is changing constantly and if this plan goes into place, then the game will continue to grow and evolve into something better.
It would be nice to see the two organizations working in solidarity with one another to try and showcase different styles of baseball.
