The 10 clubs that had been stranded in Korea for three years due to the spread of the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) all headed abroad this year as we entered the era of the coronavirus endemic.
Among the 10 teams, 7 teams visited the United States: SSG Landers (Florida, USA), Kiwoom Heroes, LG Twins, KT Wiz, KIA Tigers, NC Dinos, and Hanwha Eagles (Arizona, USA).

Five teams, including KT, KIA, Lotte, and Samsung, who have been struggling with Hanwha since the first round, will enhance their sense of real-life competition through the ‘Okinawa League’.Doosan develops its skills separately in Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan.
SSG and Kiwoom head to Taiwan.SSG, unable to find a suitable training site in Okinawa Prefecture, will refine its game skills in Chiayi, Taiwan, and Kiwoom will refine its game skills in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
