South Korean police on Wednesday said no explosives had been found at Seoul's Gocheok Sky Dome after they searched the venue in response to a reported bomb threat against Los Angeles Dodgers star Shohei Ohtani.

The Dodgers are in the South Korean capital to face the San Diego Padres in two games to open the Major League Baseball season on Wednesday and Thursday.

It is the first time that MLB has opened the regular season in South Korea.
