The annual Hope + Charity Baseball Match is a friendly game started for charity in 2012, in which over 60 former and current professional baseball players and celebrities participate. The proceeds from the ticket sales go to help underprivileged and handicapped people. This year, the team is divided between former Kia Tigers veteran player Lee Jong-beom and former Samsung Lions player Yang Joon-hyuk.
