ESPN, 한국프로 야구 시즌 방영 결정.

ESPN will televise South Korea’s Korea Baseball Organization games during the upcoming 2020 season, starting with the league’s opening day on Tuesday.

ESPN will become the KBO’s exclusive English-language home as part of an agreement with Eclat Media Group announced Monday, and it will televise six regular-season games per week.

“We’re thrilled to become the exclusive English-language home to the KBO League and to showcase its compelling action and high-level of competition,” said Burke Magnus, ESPN’s executive vice president of programming. “We have a long-standing history of documenting the game of baseball and we’re excited to deliver these live events to sports fans.”

The season-opening game between the NC Dinos and Samsung Lions will air on ESPN at 1 a.m. ET on Tuesday.

Most other games will air on ESPN2 at 5:30 a.m. ET from Tuesdays through Fridays, 4 a.m. ET on Saturdays and 1 a.m. ET on Sundays.

“The KBO League is one of the greatest baseball leagues with world-class players and many exciting initiatives,” KBO commissioner Un-Chan Chung said. “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.”
