LG Twins and Doosan Bears share the same stadium. Now, the rivals will meet in the KBO playoffs. It will be the first time in seven years that the two will go head-to-head in the postseason. They will play the best of three series at the Jamsil Baseball Stadium.
Doosan Bears will be the home team for Game 1 on Wednesday and Game 2 on Thursday. If they need a Game 3, LG Twins will be the home team. The home team has the advantage of being the last at-bat, despite playing at the same stadium with limited crowd capacity.
The last time the two teams met in the playoffs was in 2013. During that time, Doosan Bears won against LG Twins in four games.
