There is a Chinese character called ‘Geungojiyeong’. It means that the roots must be strong to have lush branches. It’s the same in any field. It can grow continuously for a long time only when the roots are strong and the foundation is solid. The same goes for Korean baseball. In order for Korean baseball to develop, the base of little baseball, which is called grassroots baseball, must be expanded.
Having raised two sons as baseball players and been in the baseball world for a long time, I knew the importance of grassroots baseball, but I wasn’t exactly sure where I was. After taking the position of president of the Little Baseball Federation, concerns that Korean baseball could be in a big crisis increased.
As the president of the Little Baseball Federation, I am working hard for the development of Little Baseball, but it is not only possible with the strength of me and the Little Baseball Federation family. The entire baseball world must come together.
On the 1st, the Korea Professional Baseball Players Association made a donation for the development of little baseball. As a method of accumulating donations according to personal performance such as hits, home runs, RBIs, wins, and innings, 48.28 million won of reserves were donated for the development of Little Baseball this year. The Athletes Association promised to expand the scope and participation of more professional players next year. As a senior in the baseball world before the president of the Little Baseball League, I am very grateful. 스포츠토토
Personally, I would like to express my gratitude to Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop. During his active career, he was interested in the development of little baseball and had been donating his talents in his spare time. After his retirement, he established the Baseball Scholarship Foundation for the development of little baseball, held baseball camps every year, and held a little baseball tournament in his name.
I applaud coach Lee Seung-yeop for his sincere efforts to develop little baseball. I believe that coach Lee Seung-yeop, whom I know, will continue to work hard for the development of little baseball.
The easiest way for baseball players to become a force for the development of little baseball is through talent donation. Little baseball teams in each region can teach young children how to play baseball and have a good time. It will be an unforgettable memory for the children, and it is also a proud thing for baseball players to donate their talents.
The more baseball players donate their talents to little baseball, the stronger grassroots baseball becomes. don’t think it’s hard Just go to the nearest little baseball team. Just do it.
