Alright, so this isn't really about food... but the Korean baseball experience is one like no other, so I thought I'd take the liberty to share.

Talk about dedication! Sox Fans may have some competition... as far as cheerleading goes.

Here they are cheering on (Busan) Lotte Giants' player Kang Min Ho before, during, and after his RBI double.



Yes, each and every player gets his very own cheer! (My favorite was Garcia's song, which I unfortunately didn't catch on camera. If you're really interested, you can hear part of it here.)

The fans also have team songs... I provided some lyrics so you can sing along to the first part of the video. : )

The Doosan Bears and LG Twins play at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul. To get to Jamsil Stadium, take Line 2 to 종합운동장역, Exit 5. Olympic Stadium is also within view from the baseball stadium if you want a photo op. : )
