Since we’re opening up access a little more, this might be a good time to introduce myself.
My name is Aaron and I live in Seoul. I’m from Hawaii, but moved to Korea in 2010. The plan was to stay a year, which turned into two years, which became… forever, I guess?
Hawaii doesn’t have much in the way of pro sports, so I wasn’t a big sports fan growing up, but I have always liked sports games. So it happened that after trying a KBO-themed game in 2013, I was excited to discover that I lived right next to the home stadium of the LG Twins. After attending more than a few games that year, we decided to go all in the following year and get season tickets (and have continue to do so every year since).
I also started playing baseball on the weekends around during the 2013-2014 offseason. I didn’t play as a kid, so starting fresh at age 33 was quite a process, but now I play well enough to enjoy myself, and even coach some of my teammates. My main position is 3B, but I can play pretty much anywhere (aside from pitching, which is something I’ve yet to figure out… not for lack of trying).
A few more random things… my life outside of baseball centers on web software development and hosting, which is how MyKBO Stats and this forum came to be. And if you play the recently released SMB3 let me know! (I keep meaning to write a review here, but I just end up playing the game instead…)
