“Did you see the strongest baseball? It was one of the few moments when he smiled broadly and joked throughout the interview due to the pressure of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC).
Choi Jeong-eun said at the SSG 1st spring camp being held in Vero Beach, Florida, USA on the 11th (Korean time), “In the national team, you have to pay attention to hitting, defense, and running. There is. I’m worried that I won’t be able to do well at the WBC, even though I can’t do much during the exhibition games or camps,” he confessed his슬롯사이트 candid feelings.
On the 6th, the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) selected Choi Ji-hoon (26, SSG) instead of Choi Ji-hoon (32, Pittsburgh), who was unable to participate due to opposition from his team, and made a final list of 30 entries to participate in the 2023 WBC. Confirmed. Among them, Choi Jeong is the only player whose main position is 3rd base. There is a possibility that shortstop Kim Ha-seong (28, San Diego), Tommy Edman (28, St. Louis), and Oh Ji-hwan (33, LG) can switch to third base, but it is a plan in case.
The pressure I felt as a result was considerable. Choi Jeong-eun said, “I really want to do well this time. There were some bad results in the previous tournament (2013 WBC), but in the past, there were (Hwang) Jae-gyun and (Huh) Kyung-min at third base,” adding, “(Kim) Ha-seong It is possible to turn Lee, (Oh) Jihwan (to third base), but I only have one position (third base). If I drop out, it means that I will not be able to continue playing in the game, and in the end, it will not help the team, so it is stressful,” he sighed. Exhaled.
Naturally, there was no choice but to talk about Heo Kyung-min, who had excellent third base defense. Heo Kyung-min, who was likely to make the final entry, turned down the offer for the national team due to aggravated injury. However, the TV entertainment show Strongest Baseball, which is being aired recently, became the cause of Choi Jung’s pouting. At the reporter’s joke that ‘Heo Gyeong-min must have been resentful’, he said, “I really resented it. Have you seen the strongest baseball?” I even thought of doing it,” he said, pouring out his words like a rapid-fire cannon.
Of course, the currently airing Doosan Bears episode was filmed in November of last year, and it is far from the reason why the national team was rejected. With this in mind, Jeong-do Choi was concerned about his close junior, saying, “Is it okay (to joke like this)?
Although the burden is a hundredfold due to his poor physical condition, the only professional third baseman in the national team promised the best performance. Choi Jeong-eun said, “In short-term matches, a player in good condition has to play, so it is right to do my best according to the situation and position at that time. However, since I am the only professional third baseman, I hope that I will continue to play well until the day I return to Korea. I was selected as a national representative. I want to do a really good job by living up to your expectations. Right now, that’s all I can think about.”
