Cho Beom-jun (former Kiwoom), the pitcher who led Chungnam’s mound, was selected as the MVP of the tournament.
Pitcher Kim Jin-woo (former KIA) of the runner-up team, Gwangju, received the Fighting Spirit Award.
Chungnam, the winner, received 30 million won in support for the city and province, and the runner-up team, Gwangju, received 10 million won in support. This support fund is used for the development of local baseball.
The Provincial Baseball Tournament was successfully held for two consecutive years following the first competition last year.
The Korea Baseball Softball Association (KBSA) is promoting the incorporation of this event into the general division of the National Sports Festival in the future. Through this, it is a plan to seek coexistence between elite baseball and sports baseball for life, expand baseball infrastructure, and expand the base for sports for life.
Seo Deok-gyu, chairman of the Cheonan City Baseball Softball Association (Chungnam general manager), who won the achievement award, said, “The baseball competition between cities and provinces will be an opportunity for players who have not stepped on the professional stage and those who dream of a comeback to continue their dreams of baseball.” We expect that it will serve as a catalyst for the establishment of business baseball teams and citizens’ baseball teams in other attempts besides Cheonan Mattis in Chungnam.”
