Mokdong Baseball Stadium, built in the late 1980s, plays host to the Nexen Heroes. The midsize ball park, which holds around 16,000 people, is like a hidden gem offering athletic shelter in the predominantly residential neighborhood. The Heroes are the second newest team in the league. It used to be a perennial bottom-dweller until they emerged strong last season with an eight-game winning streak. The ball park is part of Mokdong Sports Complex, which includes an ice rink, an indoor shooting range, a fitness club, a gymnasium, and several convenience facilities.
Mokdong Stadium offers a variety of food and beverages. But in Korea, baseball fans routinely bring in chicken, pizza, or other food, including beer.
Outside the stadium you will find vendors selling Nexen souvenir items.
Part of the fun of Korean ball parks is joining forces with the team of professional cheerleaders to root for your team. They dance and lead chants.
