The Japanese media reported the news of the selection of Choi Ji-hoon (SSG Landers), an outfielder for the Korean baseball team.
On the 6th, KBO hired Choi Ji-hoon as a substitute player on the 6th, when major league infielder Choi Ji-man (Pittsburgh Pirates) failed to join the national team. Choi Ji-man had to put down his first national team uniform as the WBC Organizing Committee’s injury review committee disallowed him to participate.
Conversely, Choi Ji-hoon enjoyed his first national team promotion after his professional debut. Choi Ji-hoon said through the club, “Actually, since I was selected on the 50-person interest list last year, Choi Jeong-sunbaenim kept telling me that you would be able to go, and that I wish I could go with you. We went together and had a good experience, and then baseball would improve a lot.” “I didn’t think that would become a reality, but I’m happy to be able to go with you, even though it’s late. I won’t be able to play as a starter, but I’ll do my best in the role I play to achieve good results.” 온라인카지노
“Personally, wearing a uniform with the Taegeuk mark is a very heavy position and I think it is a position with a lot of responsibility, so I feel burdened. I will focus on making it possible.”
Japan’s ‘Tokyo Sports’ covered the news of Choi Ji-hoon’s joining the Korean national team on the 9th and said, “There was an atmosphere of discouragement in Korea due to the absence of a major league infielder, but Choi Ji-hoon’s strong patriotism could be a threat to Japan. Choi Ji-hoon played 144 games last year. 10 homers, 31 stolen bases, and a batting average of 0.340.”
“Choi Ji-hoon is a talented player who is attracting attention as the best young outfielder in the KBO with both offensive and defensive skills. In the past, Lee Yong-gyu displayed strong patriotism in the Korean national team and became the team’s spiritual pillar. In Korea, when he performed brilliantly against Japan, he was regarded as a hero ‘Doctor’ Choi Ji-hoon, who shouts ‘Down with Japan’, said ‘Be careful’.”
An official from the Japanese national team said, “Starting from this tournament, the WBC rules have changed and matches start from the 10th inning. Considering that, it seems that the fast-footed hitter Choi Ji-hoon was selected as the ‘joker’. I know that he has a hot personality that is rare these days. .Recently, the Korean national team has a calm side, but the hot-blooded Choi Ji-hoon can instantly boil the atmosphere on the bench.”
