  • [Special Lecture] Globalization of Baseball
  • Famed baseball commentator and current favored nominee for the Korean Baseball Organization League Commissioner Heo Koo Youn held a talk on the topic of Globalization of Baseball on January 27, 2022, at Seoul National University.   Heo kicked off the lecture with a brief history of Korean baseball and how it was first introduced to Korea by American missionaries. He explained that although baseball’s history in Korea is rather short, with intensive care for future baseball athletes and adequate financial support, baseball soon took a stronghold in Korean everyday life, allowing the Korean national baseball team to win the Baseball World Cup in 1982 and the gold medal in the 2008 Summer Olympics.   The Korean national baseball team currently stands third in the World Baseball Softball Confederation World Rankings.   Heo expressed that because not a lot of countries compete in baseball, with the right management and funding to foster up-and-coming athletes, countries new to baseball will be able to gain a competitive edge through baseball.   Because of this belief, Heo spends his time and effort to promote baseball in other Asian countries, most notably Vietnam and Cambodia where he builds baseball fields and donates baseball equipment.   In the words of Dr. Joon-ho Kang, the DTM Director, “Heo Koo Youn is a baseball activist.”   After the lecture, a Q&A session took place where students shared how baseball was perceived back in their home countries, contributing to a discussion of the development of baseball.

  • Delve into KSPO: 8th Batch Team Project
  •   Due to ongoing restrictions due to the worldwide pandemic, the 8th batch turned to DTM’s sponsor Korea Sports Promotion Foundation (KSPO) to research in depth the organizational structure and practices of one of the largest sport organizations in Korea.   Under usual circumstances, the 8th Batch would have participated in one of the many mega sport events in Korea to conduct research for the curriculum-required team project. However, with KSPO’s cooperation, students were able to research various ongoing projects and departments within KSPO.   Students were divided into five different groups, and each group undertook one KSPO project or department for field research. The five different groups researched the bicycle and motorboat racing business, SPOEX, National Fitness Award, Seoul Olympic Legacy, and Korea Institute of Sport Science.   The bicycle and motorboat racing business is one of many but important fundraising business to support KSPO, and SPOEX which is derivative of the words sports and exhibition is a project that supports companies that make sport-related products. The Seoul Olympic Legacy is a project that aims to keep the legacy of Seoul Olympics alive in Korea, and the National Fitness Award is a project that has the mission to raise health awareness to all citizens so that they can live up to 100 years. Finally, the Korea Institute of Sport Science aims to provide academic research regarding sport.   Topics of the student research are in the following: Supporting the Growth of Sport Companies: Understanding the Sport Industry Segmentation in SPOEX, Bicycle and Motorboat Racing Business: Fundraising business to support KSPO, Sociocultural Legacy of the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games: New Vision of Legacy in South Korea, Examination of Korean Sport Institute of Sports Science Research Influence on Team Korea Performance on Olympic Games, and Bringing NFA 100 Close to University Students.
