Korean Pro Baseball Guidebooks

I wanted to introduce an invaluable KBO resource in English.   For the 1999-2003 seasons, Thomas St. John wrote a Korean Baseball Guidebook for the KBO.   Included in these wonderful guides is the standard statistical information for every player from the previous year, as well as a team analysis for the comming year and some articles on important events or milestones.   Unfortunately, these guidebooks are no longer available, but you might be able to find them somewhere used online.


From the guidebooks, Thomas was the KBO’s official photographer and advisor. He also covered Korean pro ball for the Korean Times and other news outlets.
