Your first thought is probably, “Dude, what’s a Wyvern?” And honestly that was mine too. Basically it’s a dragon with a triangle-tipped tail. The more you know, right?

This Wyvern is seasoned for sure as he’s in his 16th KBO season, all with the Wyverns. Someone who spends their entire career with one team? We like that kind of player.

The Wyverns aren’t having the best of seasons so far, but I’m a fan of Choi Jeong as this walkoff homer assured that the under would hit in this game, meaning my bet on DraftKings hit and got me an extra five bucks (which I greatly appreciated):

So there are your KBO comparisons to the Rockies. We’re likely to have a season starting at the end of July with how things are looking right now. But if you need some baseball entertainment in the meantime, then the KBO can hold you over. And hey, maybe one of these guys will catch you eye at 5 a.m. You never know!
