Sheik,

Look at Europe and NASCAR. MLB owners don't miss many opportunities to grab an extra nickel.

I can see uniform space being rented out (maybe even by the game).

Re: Re: Korean baseball.....

Reminds me of Little League in the 60's - the teams would be sponsered by local merchants/organizations. I was on the Western Auto team one season and Kiwanis the next 😎

In Canada too, Sheik. I started out with Wheat City Concrete and later played for Brockie Donovan Funeral Home. True story!! No, my playing career didn’t die that season, but it did not long after.

Re: Re: Korean baseball.....

Memories. In little league we were sponsored by the league, lol The Momauguin Rec League. Then in Babe Ruth, (13-16) It was the Chamber of Commerce, then the GE Electric Corp. Good times.

Re: Re: Korean baseball.....

I actually don’t remember any funny lines from opposition players. Maybe I’ve blocked them out. I do remember making fun of a team sponsored by a local plant known for its pollution (which smelled awful). The team was Simplot which naturally became Stinkplot.

Re: Korean baseball.....

In the local Little League here, one Royals jersey was sponsored by Cinderella's Beauty Salon. Tried to avoid that one like the plague (or the Coronavirus...)

Chico's Bail Bonds would have been much better.

Re: Re: Korean baseball.....

My Senior League team (15-16YO) was sponsored by a Donovan's Funeral Home, too. lol

Re: Korean baseball.....

My 12 yrs old season in Little League, we were sponsored by Buster's Recreation Center. The place was one of those family pool halls. The other teams called us the Busters. Fun season
