On the 15th, the New York Post selected Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom Heroes) as the 14th most interesting baseball player. Japan national team right-handed pitcher Yoshinobu Yamamoto (25, Orix Buffaloes) was next.
Coincidentally, the two were KBO and NPB MVPs last season, and will represent both countries in this WBC. Both are also set to make it to the major leagues after this season. 바카라사이트
Being the focus of attention without ever playing in the major leagues can be an honor.
I don’t know what basis the New York Post put Lee Jung-hoo in 14th place, but I can see it as a pleasant evaluation for me.
MLB.com selected Lee Jung-hoo as the best player by WBC position. He stood shoulder to shoulder with Mike Trout and Mookie Betts. It is also unknown on what grounds MLB.com did this. There is no doubt that this is proof that the major leagues are paying close attention to Lee Jung-hoo.
In contrast, Japanese media outlet The Digest underestimated Lee Jung-hoo’s record. It is because the KBO is a ‘ride-to-jeer’ league.
The media said, “Lee Jung-hoo insisted that the possibility of success in the world’s top major league was unknown.
In response, Lee Jung-hoo ‘ignored’ the evaluations of the American and Japanese media
. He said, “Isn’t it the evaluation that came out after the tournament?” I won’t attach much importance to it,” he said.
“I’m just thinking about the game against Australia,” he added. No matter what the media says, they will only focus on the game.
Attention is focusing on how Lee Jung-hoo will play in this WBC, including against Australia and against Japan.
