Another day at the ballpark

Only a month until the end of baseball season! Yesterday was a beautiful day and although a bit incredibly hot, it was a great time to enjoy Korean baseball. It was LG Twins vs. Doosan Bears, who share the Jamsil Stadium in Seoul. I’m not a big fan of either team, but I was keen on trying out a new fisheye lens and soaking in one of the most beautiful skies I’ve yet to see in Seoul.

The cheerleaders had a “Summer Christmas” theme going on. I didn’t really get it, and found it odd to be singing Christmas carols on a hot August day. They also gave out bananas and pineapples to the crowd.

One of these is not like the other.

Not true LG fans, but a fun game nevertheless.

Like I’ve said before, I’m an SK Wyverns fan but this game I was rooting for LG who came twice from behind and conveniently notched a 7-6 win.
