‘National Giant’ Park Byung-ho (37-KT Wiz) gave a 6-year-old baseball dreamer an unforgettable experience.
The 12th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League between KT Wiz and SSG Landers was held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on March 3.
In the bottom of the fifth inning, with KT trailing 0-1, Park Byung-ho came to the plate with two outs and a chance to score, and a cute sketchbook cheer from a young fan in the stands was captured on the broadcast screen.
The young fan, who was at the ballpark with his father, wrote witty cheers in his sketchbook, including “Park Byung-ho over toys” and “baseball over kindergarten”. Coincidentally, shortly after the fan’s cheer was captured, Park Byung-ho’s RBI single tied the game.
According to a KT official who met with us in the dugout on the 4th, after Hwang Jae-gyun’s double, Park Byung-ho walked into the dugout and checked out the little fan’s sketchbook on a TV in the first-base corridor at Wiz Park. A KT front desk employee happened to be in front of the TV, and Park thanked the fan for his support and offered to give him one of his own bats.메이저놀이터
In response, the KT front desk visited the little fan’s seat and presented him with a KT autographed ball, fan book, and notebook. After the game, the team invited the young fan’s family to the first base dugout and gave them Park Byung-ho’s bat.
The young fan who cheered for Park Byung-ho is known to be a baseball dreamer who dreams of becoming a baseball player in the future. Sim Yoo-hyun (6), who received Park’s bat and other KT merchandise, said through the KT team, “I always liked Park Byung-ho and cheered for him a lot. It’s so nice to see and hear my favorite player cheering for me. But now that they gave me a bat, I feel like my mood is going to soar. I dream of being a baseball player, and I want to be a baseball player like Park Byung-ho,” he said.
Park Byung-ho gave a special memory to a young baseball dreamer and KT fan.
