In 1982, a time when professional baseball had begun in Korea with each region having a team, it was difficult for Gwangju to receive corporation sponsorship. After trials and tribulations, a confectionary company decided to create the Haitai Tigers.
It started with just 14 players but was able to make history with a 100% win rate in the Korean Series, completing the “Haitai Dynasty” with a legendary victory in the 9th inning. Each year on May 18, unable to have a home game, the Haitai Tigers had to wander around the nation, thus receiving even more support from the people of Gwangju. Born in Jeolla, the birthplace of President Kim Daejung, they recorded their last win in 1997 and disappeared with the Asian Financial Crisis. This is a record of the Haitai Tigers.
