(Redirected from 2014 KBO)

The 2014 Korea Baseball Organization season was the 33rd for the KBO. The league saw a big offensive explosion, as team ERAs ranged from 4.29 to 6.35 and team averages from .279 to .301. A change in the balls used was assigned some of the blame. Geon-chang Seo became the first player in league annals to collect 200 hits in a year. Jung-ho Kang set a record for homers by a shortstop (40).


The KBO MVP was Nexen Heroes second baseman, Geon-chang Seo, who led the league in hits, doubles, triples, runs and average. The Rookie of the Year was Min-woo Park of the NC Dinos, who hit .298 and stole 50 bases (second in the league).
