(Redirected from 2012 KBO)

The 2012 Korea Baseball Organization was the 31st KBO season. The league marked the return or entry of some of the biggest Korean baseball names. KBO single-season homer king Seung-yeop Lee returned after eight years in Japan and finished third in both runs and RBI to show he still had it. Byung-hyun Kim and Chan-ho Park, the two most successful Korean pitchers in MLB, both played in the KBO for the first time, though neither accomplished much.


The KBO MVP went to Byung-ho Park of the Nexen Heroes, while his teammate Keon-chang Seo was named Rookie of the Year.

The following players won Gold Gloves, which in the KBO go to the best overall player at each position are not a defensive (only) award.
