The main round of the 14th Sun Dong Yeolbae OK National Deaf Baseball Tournament, supported by OK Financial Group, will be held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, the home of KT Wiz, on March 27.

On that day, the two semifinal games will be held first, followed by celebratory performances and the opening ceremony. The opening ceremony will be followed by an event game and the tournament final.

A total of eight teams participated in the tournament, and the preliminary round was held on the 20th. As a result of the qualifiers, Jeonbuk Defiantos, Ansan Willows, Daegu Hawkeyes, and Cheongju DragonEyes advanced to the semifinals. Four teams will compete in the semifinals for a ticket to the finals.

The opening ceremony will feature a celebration performance by entertainer Saori. In a special friendly game before the final, Chungju Sacred Heart School and celebrity baseball team JOMAJOMA will meet.

This is the second year in a 토토사이트 row that ZOMAZOMA has participated in the main stage of the OK National Baseball Tournament for the Deaf.

OK Financial Group has been sponsoring the National Deaf Baseball Tournament since 2010. It has been supporting sports for the deaf in Korea through former national baseball team manager Sun Dong-yeol, and in 2019, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the tournament, it was renamed the Sun Dong-yeol OK National Deaf Baseball Tournament under Sun’s name.

“Last year (2022), the tournament was held again for the first time in three years due to the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19), and by moving the main stage to Katie Wise Park, the deaf athletes were able to create meaningful memories in a better environment,” said OK Financial Group.

In addition to Sun, the tournament will be attended by Kim Eung-yong, former president of the Korea Baseball Softball Association, Yang Seung-ho, general manager of the Goyang Winners, and Lee Sang-guk, former secretary general of the Korea Baseball Organization.

New sponsors this year include Daesang Welllife and Bobae Banjang. The winner of the tournament will receive the opportunity to throw out the ceremonial first pitch and bat at a KT home game.

“I am happy that we were able to hold the Deaf Baseball Tournament safely for the second year in a row after the difficult times caused by COVID-19,” said Sun. “Thanks to the long-standing sponsorship of OK Savings Bank, the tournament went smoothly and the interest of baseball players and fans in Deaf baseball seems to be growing.”

“We would like to thank OK Savings Bank once again for their active support of the National Deaf Baseball Tournament, which gives dreams and hope to the deaf, and we hope that the deaf players will showcase their skills on a great stage this year.”
