KT Koh Young-pyo, KBO Fair Play Award


KT ace Young-pyo Ko (30) was selected as the winner of the 2021 KBO Fair Play Award.

On the 7th, the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) Reward and Punishment Committee said, “Ko Young-pyo received good evaluations for his usual game attitude and manners, and he made a great contribution to winning his team’s first championship. In addition, he showed an outstanding performance in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic team, setting an example for other athletes.”

The Fair Play Award is given to a player who has contributed to improving the image of the KBO League by setting an example on and off the field. The KBO has been awarding Fair Play Awards since 2001.

It is the second time that a KT player has received this award after Yuhan-jun in 2017. Go Young-pyo will receive a trophy and 5 million won in prize money at the KBO Golden Glove Awards held on the 10th.
