President Park Geun-hye made a surprise visit to Jamsil Stadium in Seoul to throw a ceremonial pitch in a match between the Doosan Bears and the Samsung Lions on Sunday.
She wore a jersey bearing the letters that read "2013 Korean Series," a blue baseball cap, and a glove adorned with the national flag design. After the pitch, she watched the game for a while before leaving the stadium.
Park is the fourth incumbent president after Chun Doo-hwan, Kim Young-sam and Roh Moo-hyun to throw a ceremonial pitch at a professional baseball match.
Samsung won Sunday's match 3-2, clinching its first victory after two consecutive losses in the Korean Series, the championship series of the Korean professional baseball league. The fourth round takes place at the same venue at 6 p.m. Monday.
