South Korea island is a field of dreams for young baseball hopefuls

Local people watch An Seung-han, 17, An Seung-young, 16, and Bang Jun-young, members of the Deokjeok High School baseball team, as they take part in a practice session, on Deokjeok island in Incheon, South Korea, September 14, 2023. Dreaming of making it big in baseball, teenage brothers An Seung-han and An Seung-young travelled hundreds of miles away from home to remote Deokjeok island, where the sport and their team, are now the closest thing they have to a family. The boys are among a few dozen teenagers who have left the bright lights of some of South Korea's biggest cities to join a specialised sports academy set up by Kim Hak-yong, former manager of the elite Dongguk University team that has produced scores of players in the national KBO major league. "If I work hard here, I can be a main player, so I'm working even harder. If I keep doing well, I can also become a professional baseball player," 16-year-old Seung-young, the younger brother, said during a training session. REUTERS/Kim Hong-Ji
