South Korea's professional baseball league has decided to keep its current free agency system after a leading players' interest group rejected their proposed changes.
The Korea Baseball Organization submitted proposals to the Korea Professional Baseball Players Association in September, saying it would only push forward with the agenda if the KPBPA agreed to each revision.
The KBO had sought to limit the amount of money free agents could get on the open market at 8 billion won, and limit their deal to a maximum of four years.
But, the interest group rejected the league's proposals, in particular capping the monetary value of a free agent deal.■
