KBO History

The Korea Baseball Organization (한국야구위원회) is the governing body for the professional leagues of baseball in South Korea. The KBO was founded in 1981 and has been governing two leagues: the KBO League (KBO 리그) and KBO Futures League (KBO 퓨처스리그 (farm league) since 1982. It is one of two major baseball governing bodies; the other is the Korea Baseball Association (대한야구협회), which is the governing body for amateur baseball competitions.

The KBO is a member of the International Baseball Federation (IBAF), and is responsible for the national baseball team for the World Baseball Classic and Asia Series.[15][16] National team participation in other competitions is governed by the Korea Baseball Association. (taken from Wikipedia)
