KBO scores, schedule, odds, how to watch, live stream, TV channel, game times as baseball starts in Korea


Fans itching for live baseball action are in luck because the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) started its 2020 season on Tuesday. The 10-team KBO is set for a full slate of games Tuesday-Sunday each week, and some will be broadcast on TV in the United States. The KBO is the second professional league to begin its 2020 regular season, joining Taiwan’s Chinese Professional Baseball League.

The KBO season, like the CPBL, was delayed due to the coronavirus, but the league still hopes to play a full, 144-game season in 2020. We have a full primer on the KBO season here.

There’s more good news for American baseball fans: ESPN will be broadcasting one KBO game per day (six games per week since KBO doesn’t play on Mondays) throughout the season. The games will be aired live in the early morning hours on the east coast.

“The KBO League is one of the greatest baseball leagues with world-class players and many exciting initiatives,” KBO commissioner Un-Chan Chung said in a statement. “During this unprecedented and difficult time, I hope the KBO League can bring consolation to the communities and provide guidelines to the world of sports. I am pleased that the KBO League can be introduced globally and hope this can be an opportunity for the development of our league and the sport.”

Here’s everything to know about how to watch KBO games this week, and the league’s full schedule for Opening Day. Odds are also listed from William Hill Sportsbook.
