Card Of The Week November 22

The inaugural Premier 12 wrapped up yesterday with Korea defeating the US in the gold medal game.  Many would say, however, that the championship game was really last Thursday when Korea rallied from a 3-0 deficit to score four runs in the top of the ninth to upset previously undefeated Japan.  Yesterday's games seem just an afterthought with Japan demolishing Mexico 11-1 in the bronze medal game and Korea downing the US 8-0 in the gold medal game.

The tournament awards were announced after the final game and Korean outfielder Hyun-Soo Kim was named MVP.  Unsurprisingly, Kim was also named to the tournament's  "All World Team" which is the second time he's made such a team in an international tournament - he also made the team for the 2009 WBC.

It's been a good fall for Kim as the team he plays for in his day job, the Doosan Bears, were KBO champions.  Here's a couple Korean cards of him:
