It is organized by the Yang Jun-hyuk Baseball Foundation as a friendly game to help the underprivileged and the disabled, and sponsored by Ray Bio (CEO Lee Ho), a bio healthcare company based in Gumi, Gyeongsangbuk-do, and Herbalife, With Farm, Deloitte, and Story Mobile.
Regardless of the victory or defeat, the purpose of the competition is to give pleasure to both players and spectators.
Kim Min-soo and Kim Yong-ui will transform into animation character Kaonashi and science fiction film Harley Quinn.
In the meantime, participating players have presented fun by showing unique costumes and performances, such as Yoo Hee-kwan’s Thor cosplay.
In particular, other fan services attract attention, such as pitchers and batters changing positions, hitting with tennis rackets, large table tennis rackets, and rubber ball pitches instead of baseball bats.
Singer Lee Chan-won, known as a baseball expert in the entertainment industry, boasts his talk.
Like last year, the “Yangshin Team” led by coach Yang Jun-hyuk and the “Jongbeom Team” led by director Lee Jong-beom will compete.
Players from the Hanwha Eagles include Moon Dong-ju, Noh Si-hwan, Park Sang-won, Jang Min-jae, Heo In-seo and Moon Hyun-bin.
Jung Chul-won, Kim Dong-ju, Kim Jae-ho, Jung Soo-bin, Cho Soo-haeng, and Park Chi-guk will participate in the Doosan Bears, while Kim Jae-woong, Kim Hwi-jip and Kim Tae-jin will participate in the Kiwoom Heroes.
For the Samsung Lions, Kim Moon-soo is in the lineup, and for the Lotte Giants, Yoon Dong-hee, Ahn Kwon-soo, Park Se-woong, Choi Joon-yong, Han Dong-hee and Kim Min-seok will play.
An official from the Yang Joon-hyuk Baseball Foundation said, “The competition has been moved forward to November this year. Unfortunately, the entire team’s players did not participate because it was a month of many club events, but they prepared a lot to provide richer fun. You can look forward to it.”
