Writing for the SK Wyverns


Late last year I was asked to be apart of something that I am very proud of. A friend in Seoul had the opportunity to create the yearly fan book for the Korean Baseball team the SK Wyverns, and he asked me to be apart of it.

I was asked to write two articles for the book, and I couldn’t have been more honored to do so. The two articles were also on two things that I really enjoy. The first article would be over movies and books on baseball. I have always had a love of baseball movies and have seen countless both good and bad and recently I have been reading quite a few more baseball books finding some gems in the process. The second article would be a foreigner’s perspective of watching the SK Wyverns.

I have been fortunate to watch games at all of the stadiums used in the KBO and hands down the SK Wyverns have the best in the league, not to mention some of the most rabid fans. I truly enjoyed the atmosphere at the ballpark and can’t wait to get back to a game there.

I write about baseball because I love the game. It’s been a passion of mine since I was a child, and it’s the one thing that has stayed a passion of mine throughout my life. So being asked to write for a professional baseball teams yearly fan book was a chance of a lifetime.

I have not seen the entire book yet because I just made it back to South Korea this week and have not had time to make it up to Incheon yet. I have seen a portion of the book, and it is truly a work of art. My friend, and chief editor, Kihoon Jung did a fantastic job putting the book together. He deserves a lot of credit for all the hard work he put into it including translating my articles into Korean.

If you are in South Korea and make it up to Incheon, don’t miss the chance to head over to Munhak Baseball Stadium in Incheon to catch a SK Wyverns game. You won’t be disappointed. And while you are there be sure to pick up a copy of the fan book at the stadium.

I would like to thank Kihoon Jung for the opportunity to share my love of the game of baseball to fans in South Korea. It was an honor to be apart of such a great project.
