Baek and Lee (with Han as an unplanned tagalong) head to the United States to scout an under-the-radar pitcher, but signing him may be trickier than planned.

Streaming in the US on Kocowa.

The most melodramatic episode so far. Kinda loved it, though. Gil Chang-ju's story is some three hanky material.

This melange of baseball analytics and management process and a light dusting of k-drama is extremely my jam. The first couple of episodes were challenging to sort through all the characters, but now I’m rolling. Thanks for recommending this series!

I'm so glad someone else here is watching it. I'm obsessed with it and haven't talked anyone IRL into watching along.

What finally got me to roll through the series was a a statistics-heavy baseball podcast I follow doing a rewatch during the MLB off-season, starting with this episode.

Effectively Wild! Yep, I found it the same way. They had been hyping Stove League for weeks even before they started getting into it in detail on the show.

I watched the first couple of episodes on Viki when they first mentioned it, then binged the whole thing on Kocowa when EW started the recap episodes. I was disappointed Ben and Meg didn't discuss the Dreams changing the dimensions of the ballpark as part of the first big trade.
