The Doosan Bears will look to do the impossible on Thursday as they take on the NC Dinos in the Wildcard Series, a do-or-die shot at staying alive in the playoffs that no fifth-place team has ever won.
The Bears head south to Changwon in South Gyeongsang to face the Dinos in the opening game of the Wildcard Series Thursday, a three-game series shortened to two that NC enter with a one-game advantage after finishing in fourth to Doosan’s fifth in the regular season.
That means that anything other than two straight victories means game over for the Bears and an immediate ticket to the playoffs for the Dinos.
With the odds so heavily stacked against the fifth-place team, not a single one has made it to the playoffs proper since the introduction of the system in 2015.
