Fans who must have been thirsty responded with enthusiasm.
Baseball team LG recorded its seventh home sellout of the season in the final game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against Doosan at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on Friday. The 23,750 capacity of the stadium was filled, making it the ninth Jamsil sellout of the season for LG, including the two-game series against Doosan on Sept. 30-Oct. 1.
This is the first time in 29 years that LG has finished first in the pennant race since 1994, the last year it won the title. The fans’ love is bound to be intense. The final game of the season was also played at home. The team organized a DJ party and fireworks for the fans, including the regular season championship trophy presentation ceremony and the Korean Series departure ceremony.
A full house was in order. All tickets were sold seven minutes before the play ball was called. This was the result of a constant stream of fans trying to catch a glimpse of the players before Game 1 of the Korean Series on November 7.
The sellout brings LG’s final home attendance for the season to 1,026,137. Not only did it surpass last year’s record of 906,686, but it also marked the first time in the franchise’s 10-year history that the team reached the 1.2 million home attendance mark. The last time this happened was in the 2013 season, which was the first fall baseball season in 11 years. It was also the first time since 2015, when the KBO became a 10-team league, that the entire franchise achieved this feat. It can be described as a box office success.먹튀검증
LG head coach Yeom Kyung-yeop cited the love of the fans as the number one reason for winning the regular season. “The more fans come to the game, the more focused the players are. In that regard, it was very helpful for us to perform well,” he said. “We won first place with 1.2 million spectators. So I’m very happy and I hope they will come to the Korean Series as well.”
The KBO is also smiling at LG’s progress. Through 14 days, the cumulative attendance of 7.984 million through 712 games has easily surpassed the 8 million mark. It is the fourth time in history and the first time in five years that the league has reached the 8 million mark after reaching 8 million for three consecutive seasons with 8.33 million in 2016, 8.4 million in 2017, and 8.07 million in 2018. We’re on pace to surpass the 2018 season as the third-biggest ever.
