KBO scores, odds, schedule, how to watch, live stream, TV channel, game times as baseball returns to Korea

The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) began its 2020 season on May 5. The KBO's return was a welcomed sight for sports fans in search of fresh highlights and live sports. The 10-team league is set for a full slate of games each week (with action running Tuesday-Sunday), and some will be broadcast on TV in the United States. The KBO is the second professional baseball league to start its 2020 regular season after the coronavirus pandemic, joining the Chinese Professional Baseball League in Taiwan.

We have a full primer on the KBO season here, and the league plans to play its full, 144-game schedule in 2020.

ESPN will be broadcasting one KBO game per day (six games per week since KBO doesn't play on Mondays) throughout the 2020 season. The games will be aired live in the early morning hours on the east coast.

"The KBO League is one of the greatest baseball leagues with world-class players and many exciting initiatives," KBO commissioner Un-Chan Chung said in a statement. "During this unprecedented and difficult time, I hope the KBO League can bring consolation to the communities and provide guidelines to the world of sports. I am pleased that the KBO League can be introduced globally and hope this can be an opportunity for the development of our league and the sport."

Here's everything to know about how to watch KBO games this week, and the league's full schedule for Opening Day. Odds are also listed from William Hill Sportsbook.
