Korean League



The KBO is the top baseball league in South Korea. The league is comprised of 10 teams, many of which are named after a major Corporations. Kia, LG and Samsung are an example of companies associated with the KBO. The KBO is considered the top sports league in South Korea. The league has a quota on foreign players to protect their local players. The limit is currently 3 foreigners per team.

TBC tracks statistics for the KBO but does not provide pages for each of the players. You can view team statistics since 2015 and players already existing on the site will have their name linked. The KBO stats will appear in the "Other" section of stats on a player page. There aren't a lot of players who will be linked other than the foreign players and a few former Korean Major Leaguers or Minor Leaguers.
