22 to 2. Our WBC national team, which was eliminated in the first round three times in a row despite setting a new record for ‘highest score’, returned with a heavy homework. There are more than one or two things that need to be fixed, including the failure of a generational shift and poor strategies.
This is reporter Choi Jong-hyeok.
The national team scattered and left the airport without a press conference.
Only director Lee Kang-chul stood in front of the camera.먹튀검증
[Lee Kang-cheol/WBC national team coach: You can criticize me, so I would appreciate it if the players refrain. If the young players only threw their own balls, the results would be good enough, but the players will be disappointed.]
The most vulnerable was the mound.
About 12 out of 15 pitchers are called ‘young guns’, but they were easily shaken and control was also a problem.
Even veteran pitchers such as Kim Gwang-hyun and Yang Hyeon-jong failed to hold the center well, and gave up 21 points in the match against Australia and Japan, which confirmed the failure of the generational change.
It’s not just players.
The strategy was also poor.
[Kim In-sik/Former baseball team manager: The pitcher eventually plays a big part in baseball, but everything went wrong. If we had put all the strong pitchers into the game against Australia, wouldn’t we have reached the quarterfinals first?]
Kim Gwang-hyun, who wore the Taegeuk mark for 18 years since his youth, said that he was grateful for being a member of the national team.
Kim Hyun-soo, the captain who hinted at the retirement of the national team, protested to ask to think about the system.
[Kim Hyun-soo/WBC National Team: It seems a bit like talking about the gap between (Japan’s) 6,000 high schools and (Korea’s) 50 high schools.]
Korean baseball, which used to put the Taegeukgi on the mound, is now facing criticism as baseball with bubbles.
It’s time to look at the report card with desperation rather than misery.
