On the 15th, SSG Landers, together with E-Mart 24, donated the donations collected through the ‘E-Mart 24 Strikeout Donation Campaign’ to the Incheon Social Welfare Foundation.
The ‘E-Mart 24 Strikeout Donation Campaign’ is a social contribution program that connects E-Mart 24’s number 24 with baseball’s second inning situation, where 100,000 won is donated if an SSG pitcher strikes out without allowing a run in the second inning of a home game, and 1.24 million won is donated if the pitcher strikes out to end the inning with the bases loaded.
This season, SSG pitchers recorded 161 strikeouts in such situations, totaling 28.64 million won. The donation will be utilized to support 80 single mothers in the Incheon area with childcare items and childcare education expenses, 온라인카지노 especially those who might otherwise fall through the cracks.
The ceremony, held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon, Was attended by Ko Hyo-joon, who accumulated the most donations in the 2023 season, and consisted of an introduction of the campaign’s purpose, donation delivery, and a commemorative photo session.
“I would like to thank everyone at E-Mart 24 for creating this opportunity for SSG pitchers to participate in a meaningful donation program. We were able to record more strikeouts thanks to the fans’ support, and we are proud that those strikeouts were donated. We hope that the donations will help single mothers and their children grow up in a happy environment.”
