KBO on ESPN made American fans happy to see live baseball games back on their TV sets. The sports network shows six Korea Baseball Organization games each week for the entire season. It is the substitute for Major League Baseball, which remains suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
American baseball fans are happy to watch some live baseball games on TV finally. ESPN began its KBO coverage with the Opening Day match between NC Dinos and Samsung Lions. Some fans describe the games as well-paced. Also, they love the professionalism of the South Korean teams.
Some baseball fans even record the KBO games and watch them after work due to the time difference. For instance, the first KBO game started at 10 p.m. on the West Coast and 1 a.m. EST. Most baseball fans watch MLB games in the afternoon or at night.

Some American baseball fans are now looking for online gambling sites with sports betting odds for KBO games. They find the games enjoyable, even if it is their first time watching a South Korean baseball match.
Although ESPN is showing just one game each day, four other matches are playing at the same time. It is different from the MLB, which spread out games. The schedule of the KBO makes it a more exciting viewing experience.
Based on observations by fans, KBO pitchers spend less time between pitches. Also, batters don’t step out of the box as often as sluggers in the MLB. Most American fans love the pace of the games, which is faster than Major League games.
When making betting pick selections, some fans choose teams with the same nickname as MLB teams. For instance, fans from San Francisco often lean towards the Lotte Giants. Fans from Minnesota are looking forward to the next LG Twins game.
