MLB players to make postseason tour to South Korea in November

NEW YORK -- Major League Baseball will send players to South Korea for a postseason tour in the league's first trip to the country since 1922.

The games between an MLB team and players from the South Korean league will be at Busan Sajik Baseball Stadium on Nov. 11-12 and Seoul's Gocheok Sky Dome on Nov. 14-15, the commissioner's office said Thursday.

Tampa Bay Rays first baseman Ji-Man Choi, injured Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Hyun Jin Ryu and San Diego Padres infielder Ha-seong Kim are South Koreans currently in the major leagues.

MLB players appeared in Japan, Korea and China as part of a 1922 tour that included Casey Stengel, Waite Hoyt and Herb Pennock.
