You hear the term fireballer all the time -- too much, actually -- in baseball, but a team in South Korea deserves credit for taking this to the literal sense. The KT Wiz opened its season with a first pitch that was really a fireball. Launched on a wire from the centerfield scoreboard, the ball had flames coming off it just like in the cartoons. Another nice touch was having the mascot stand in the batter's box to wait for the oncoming heat.
KT, one of South Korea's top mobile phone companies, has put an emphasis on making technology accessible for fans at the stadium. Korea JoongAng Daily reports that "210 Internet access point devices are installed, which will allow 20,000 people to watch high-quality videos at the same time. They can also receive various information about players and the game in real time through their smart devices."
