KT Wiz’s command tower and Korean national team coach Lee Kang-cheol kept quiet about Shin-soo Choo’s (SSG Landers) recent remarks.
On the 27th, Director Lee left for Arizona, USA via Incheon International Airport. Coach Lee plans to check the facilities and training environment of the Kino Sports Complex along with the new season plan.
Previously, a KT official said, “Coach Kang-cheol Lee is heading to the camp two days ahead of the team,” and “I am thinking of quietly envisioning a season ahead of the spring camp training.
” Director Lee said, “It is a personal opinion and each player will have their own thoughts. I think it was discussed for the development of professional baseball. I don’t think it is something to be discussed here.”
On the 21st (Korean time), Choo Shin-soo appeared on ‘DKNET’, a Korean radio broadcast in Dallas, Texas, USA, and said about the formation of the WBC team, “If you looked at the future rather than the current results, many (veteran) players should not have gone, and many new players will be It should be elected,” he raised.
Also, Choo Shin-soo regretted that Ahn Woo-jin was eliminated from the national team. He said, “(Ahn Woo-jin) clearly did the wrong thing and it is very sad to hear it as a third person. In a way, he is a player who has the talent to do well after Park Chan-ho, and I am also playing baseball in Korea, but there are too many things I do not understand.” 스포츠토토
Last season, An Woo-jin posted an average ERA of 2.11 with 15 wins, 8 losses and 224 strikeouts in 196 innings in 30 games. He showed the ability to represent Korean baseball. He also won the Golden Glove for pitching. However, he was disciplined by the Korea Sports Association and the Korea Baseball Softball Association by depriving him of his national team qualification due to school violence during his Whimoon High School days.
Choo Shin-soo said, “It seems that it is not easy to forgive in Korea rather than cover it up. If people made (mistakes) when they were young, they repented of their mistakes, were punished, and were even suspended from business trips, but they couldn’t go to international competitions.”
Meanwhile, coach Lee will conduct KT training until the 13th of next month and take over the training of the national team to participate in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) from the 14th.
Both the KT 2023 spring camp and the WBC national team camp will be held at the Tucson Kino Sports Complex.
