One day after U.S. sports fans were elated by the presence of live baseball on ESPN early in the morning, then summarily disappointed by a rain delay in quintessential 2020 fashion, we’re trying it again.

The Doosan Bears and LG Twins will become the second pairing of KBO squads to make their national American television debut on Wednesday morning, and you can watch from home!
ESPN’s second day of live KBO action begins at 5:30 a.m. EST, called by Karl Ravech and Eduardo Perez from the home studio once again. The reddit and Twitch MLB streams community will have links available.
While Dinos-Lions was a nice appetizer on Tuesday, this is the primo stuff. The Bears are the defending KBO champions, sweeping the Kiwoom Heroes to wrap up 2019’s action. Bears-Twins should also feature several familiar names to American audiences.

Doosan features former Mets pitcher Chris Flexen, as well as former Boston farmhand Raul Alcantara. Meanwhile, former Oriole Hyun-Soo Kim, as well as ex-prospects Casey Kelly (from the Adrian Gonzalez trade!) and Tyler Wilson (let’s go O’s, again) are on the Twins roster.
Who’s ready for Round 2?!
