In the final, Dongguk team beated Inha University Baseball Team. The Dongguk team had four runs before 9th inning, one at the 1st, two for the 3rd, and an additional one at the 6th. However, with the two home-runs, In-ha was able to turn the table by 5-4. At the final inning, in the base-loaded made by walk and hit-by-pitch, Lee Hyun-seok(4th grade, C) hit a three-run double, clearing the bases and re-reversing the game. He was awarded for both MVP and Distinguished-performance-award and Lee Geon-yeol, the head coach, won the best coach award. Coach Lee said, “The only reason why we were able to dominate the league for the five times is the effort put by players and support from alumni. We were evaluated as a weak team by other teams and reporters, because eight key players graduated last year. Ironically, we practiced more to beat against that evaluation.”
However, according to the opinion of outside experts, Dongguk University Baseball Team have become more powerful due to Lee himself. He brought a new training method similar to the one that pro teams use, and outstanding tactics. Now our baseball team is enjoying a renaissance, and this is the first time after 80s led by the head coach Kim In-sik.
