In its 11th year, the tournament was held Saturday March 24th at the McInnish Sports Complex in Carrollton. Nine North Texas Korean-American church teams participated in this year’s tournament.


Global Harvest Church defeated Korean Antioch Full Gospel Church of Dallas in the final game to claim the championship, along with the bragging rights as the best Korean-American church softball team. Semihan Church and Life & Fruit Church placed third.

The MVP of the tournament award went to Chris Kim, while Jung Soo Lee grabbed the Golden Glove honor.


The tournament is hosted annually by the Dallas Korean Softball Association in conjunction with Korean Churches Association of Dallas. 


The purpose of the event is to bring Korean-American churches and their members together for unity and sharing of the gospel.

Gui Bo Kim, the senior pastor of Big Tree Church and vice president of the Korean Churches Association of Dallas, delivered the sermon during the opening ceremony.


“While the main purpose of any sports is winning, there is another important purpose that all Christians need to keep in mind. And that is sharing of the gospel” said pastor Kim.


“I hope this tournament serves as an opportunity to unite Korean-American churches in their efforts to spread the gospel” pastor Kim added.


Chul Hyun Hwang, the president of the Korean Amateur Sports Association of Dallas, delivered the welcoming remarks.


Hwang, who played an important role in forming the Korean-American softball league many years ago, said the game of softball is a great way to bring people together.


“I’m glad to see the league is still thriving after so many years. But I’d like to see even more people get involved in the league and use it as a way to stay fit.” said Hwang.


Hwang said the Dallas Korean Amateur Sports Association is planning a Korean-American sports festival for DFW Korean-Americans this fall. 


According to Hwang, nine different sports will be played, including the softball. Hwang urged softball players to participate in the fall event.


“It will be the first ever the Korean-American community of North Texas will gather in a sports event. It will be held in a form of mini Olympic games and I hope many of you can participate in it” Hwang urged.


Korean-American community of Dallas successfully hosted the 19th Korean American National Sports Festival in Dallas last year. It was an event in which Korean-American amateur athletes from all over the country participated.


The fall sports festival president Hwang is referring to is only for the Korean-Americans in North Texas. And it will be the first time such an event is held within the community.
