Outside Alcohol Banned at Baseball Stadiums

Outside Alcohol Banned at Baseball Stadiums

The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) has announced their new “B Safe Campaign,” which prohibits visitors to their stadiums from bringing in their own alcoholic beverages, just in time for the new season. This includes soju, ice boxes, and soup, and specifically limits people to one bottle of a non-alcoholic drink. Cans and glass bottles are the focus of the ban and paper cups and plastic bottled drinks will be on sale within the stadiums. The announcement of this ban was met with vitriol from some fans stating that enjoying their own alcohol while watching the game was an important part of the fun. Others have said that these strict regulations on alcohol at the games will help to ensure that baseball remains a family-friendly endeavor. Special security will be added to ensure that these regulations are enforced and violators of these new rules may be asked to leave the stadium and may be barred from future games.
