Card Of The Week November 18

The 2018 Korean Series wrapped last Monday with a game for the ages.  Going into the game the SK Wyverns were leading the Series three games to two but Doosan took a late 4-3 lead in the game and was one strike away from winning the game and evening the Series until Jeong Choi tied the game up with a solo home run.  The game went on until the 13th inning before Don-Min Han put SK up for good with a solo home run in the top of the inning.  Han ended up being named MVP of the Series.  This was the first KBO championship for SK who were managed by former Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters and Kansas City Royal manager Trey Hillman.  Hillman became the first manager to ever win championships in both NPB and KBO (he led the Fighters to a Nippon Series championship in 2006).  Hillman is stepping down as Wyverns manager now due to family issues.

Here are cards of Choi, Han and Hillman:
