Seoul Nexen Heroes “Yagu in Girl” – Apr./May, 2014

With the rising number of female spectators at baseball games, the Seoul ‎Nexen‬ Heroes have initiated a program to encourage more young women to follow the game.  The title of the program is “Yagu in Girl” which is a sort of a pun as it means “it’s baseball” if read in Korean (yagu is the word for baseball in Korean).
