The 2019 Landmark Classic was played at the Mcinnish Park in Carrollton on Saturday, September 21st.

 

It was originally scheduled to be played at the Heritage Yards in Plano but the venue was changed due to scheduling issue.

Played in its 8th year, the Landmark Classic is an annual event in which the members of the Dallas Police Department and the Korean-American community get together and play a friendly game of softball.

 

This year, the Landmark Classic was played as part of the Mid-South Korean American Softball Tournament.

 

Two teams from the DPD participated in this year’s event – exhibition team for the Landmark Classic and competitive team for the Mid-South tournament.

 

The exhibition team was mainly made up of Police Officers and NPO’s from the Northwest Division, with some officers from other divisions such Southwest Division. DPD has softball teams that play on a regular basis.

 

Major Bill Griffin, the Commander of the Northwest Division expressed his appreciation for the event.

 

“This event means a lot. It just shows that the community and the Police get together and have fun. That’s what it’s all about. I and the Department believe in community engagement and this is how you do it. Not as Police but as regular people just playing softball” Major Griffin said.

 

Major Griffin emphasized community involvement in fighting crimes.

 

“If you see something, say something or call. You are the eyes and ears. You may think something is insignificant, but it may be significant. You need to let us know so we can dedicate our resources accordingly.”

 

H.K. Kim, the president of the Greater Dallas Korean American Chamber of Commerce, threw the ceremonial first pitch.

 

Kim also emphasized community involvement in making neighborhoods safer.

 

“This is a great way to express appreciation for the Police Officers do. And I thank John Lee for keeping this event going for the past 8 years” Kim said.

 

John Lee is the founder and CEO of the Landmark Realty Group, which has been organizing and sponsoring the event every year.

 

Lee expressed his gratitude for David Kim (Sr. Corporal) for working with him in organizing the event and thanked all players for their involvement.

 

Steve Shin, owner of bbbop Seoul Kitchen, provided the lunch for the entire event. More than 100 players and spectators showed up for the event.

 

“John and I go to the same church, Global Harvest Church, and found out about today’s event from him. When he told me he needed someone to sponsor lunch, I was more than willing to help out. This is the least we can do to thank the Police officers” Shin said.

 

For future sponsorship opportunities, contact Landmark Realty Group at 972-241-6718.
