    The Lotte Giants are hosted by Busan, not Masan.

  2. Miles says:

    Just to straighten things up, The Giants are a shared team between Busan and Masan. A bulk of their games are played in Busan but Masan still hosts a good amount as well.

    This place is a waste of time and money. Rather go to Changwon City or Busan.
