The 2024 MLB regular season begins next week on the other side of the world. The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres will play two games in Seoul, South Korea, on March 20 and 21. They will be the MLB’s first regular-season games ever played in South Korea.

The Dodgers and Padres both arrived in Seoul on Friday, and while at the airport, an egg was thrown in the direction of Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. It does not appear he was struck. Here’s the video

The Dodgers and Padres were both greeted by fans and media at the airport, which is customary in South Korea. Korean athletes and celebrities are often interviewed moments after exiting the plane, so a large crowd is not unusual.
