On the 17th, the finals of the Taegi King and Samil Park League were held, and
the dream team of baseball repeatedly came from behind to win the trophy.
Shinheung Elementary School in Daejeon and Gadong Elementary School in Seoul won the ’53rd Presidential National Elementary School Baseball Tournament’.
In the Samil Park League finals held at Hoengseong Baseball Park on the morning of the 17th, hosted by Gangwon Ilbo, Korea Baseball Softball Association, Hoengseong-gun, and Hoengseong-gun Sports Council, Daejeon’s Shinheung Elementary School won a shutout 5-0 against Chungbuk Seokgyo Elementary School. Shinheung Elementary School’s number one hitter, Lee Dong-gyu (infielder), attacked in the bottom of the first inning and ran away with two runs in the first inning, including a home run as the lead hitter. Seokgyo Elementary School threw a game-winning game with a fast, hit-and-run baseball game, but was blocked by Shinheung Elementary pitcher Lee Jin-woong’s fight and was unable to find a clue to their pursuit. Shinheung Elementary decided the game in the bottom of the third inning when Yoon Tae-woong (infielder) widened the score gap to 5 points with a two-run home run.
