“The entire team was surprised to see the video,” said Kim Min-seo, captain of the Sangdong High School baseball team. “It was exciting to see that so many professional baseball players were interested in our team.” “The number of baseball teams in schools has been decreasing recently, so the interest and promotion of professional players will be very helpful in expanding the base of youth baseball,” said Baek Jae-ho, head coach of the Sangdong High School baseball team.
