I entered my mid-30s before I knew it. It is very likely that this will be the last World Baseball Classic. Even after four years, it is not easy to compete with major league players as a national representative.
So, I am more curious about what kind of memories I will make with my juniors at this WBC.
Among the 30 representative players who will participate in this WBC, only the uncle players stand out. Park Byeong-ho (37) Lee Ji-young (37) Yang Eui-ji (36) Choi Jeong (36) Kim Hyeon-soo (35) Kim Kwang-hyeon (35) Yang Hyeon-jong (35) Lee Yong-chan (34) Na Seong-beom (34) and other players who have conquered the KBO league so far are Korean baseball players. came to the goal of revitalization. 토토
They may be able to compete in future international competitions such as the Asian Games or Premier 12. However, given their age, there is no guarantee that they will compete in the 6th WBC, which will be held in 4 years. It is likely that this will be the last WBC.
Among the players who go to the WBC with them, Lee Jung-hoo (25) Ko Woo-seok (25) Kang Baek-ho (24) Jung Woo-young (24) Kwak Bin (24) Kim Yun-sik (23) So-jun So (22) Lee Eui-ri (21), etc. There are many young players who will be responsible for this year. It is truly a harmony of old and new to enter this competition.
In a situation where the popularity of baseball is declining due to the sluggish performance of recent international competitions due to Corona 19, there is a high voice that this WBC should achieve successful results. Seniors who have played a lot in international competitions must pass on a great legacy to their juniors.
Players grow while experiencing, but the experience of success gives a better effect on player growth than failure. This is why promising players grow quickly in teams that produce good results.
In this national team, we have to leave last memories for the veterans who went to the last WBC with good results, and we have to grow the key players who will be responsible for the national team in the future.
The 2023 WBC is now two months away. Shall we regain the glory of the semifinals in 2006 and the runner-up in 2009? Or will he continue the pain of being eliminated in the first round twice in a row in 2013 and 2017?
