Korea Baseball Organization Demands Changwon Select New Stadium Location
The Korea Baseball Organization said that "it will formally demand the home city of an expansion ball club to choose a more viable site to build a new stadium, citing lack of transparency in the original selection," according to YONHAP. The KBO "urged the city of Changwon in South Gyeongsang Province to choose a new location for a new ballpark for the NC Dinos." The Dinos joined the KBO this year as the league’s ninth and newest team. They are "currently playing at a renovated Masan Stadium, which can seat up to 20,000 fans." Under an agreement with the KBO, Changwon "must complete a new stadium" with at least 25,000 seats by '16 (YONHAP, 9/24).
