SSG Director Kim Won-hyeong “Worried about hiring Kim Gwang-hyun and Choi Jeong? WBC, I want to go too”

Reporter Kwon Hyeok-joon = “WBC (World Baseball Classic)? I want to go too.”

Director Kim Won-hyeong of SSG Landers said this and smiled. The question was asked if there were any concerns as team coaches about the selection of Kim Gwang-hyeon (35) and Choi Jeong (36), the pillars of the team’s pitching, to the national team.

The SSG squad led by coach Kim departed for Florida, USA on the morning of the 30th. SSG will conduct the first camp in Florida, USA until February 26th, and then move to Okinawa, Japan, from February 28th to March 8th to continue the second camp.

Coach Kim, who met with reporters before leaving the country, said, “I’m going to spring camp abroad for the first time since becoming a coach.” is strong,” he said.

The 2023 season is different from any other season. This is because the WBC tournament, like the ‘Baseball World Cup’, will be held before the opening. Since the main players of each team were selected, the spring camp schedule was also extended from previous years. 먹튀검증

In the case of SSG, Kim Gwang-hyun and Choi Jeong were on the national team. Although both are in their mid-30s, there is no disagreement about the selection of the national team because they still performed at the top of the league. The two, who have been consistently called to the national team since they were young in their early 20s, have once again worn the Taegeuk mark.

However, since I am in my mid-30s, there is a lot of pressure. This is because problems such as deterioration of physical strength appear while continuing blood clots in the WBC, or the risk of injury in the worst case cannot be ruled out. It is an unavoidable worry for a team that has a ‘national team’.

But Director Kim shook his head. He said, “I’m less worried than when I was young.”

He emphasized, “A big tournament like the WBC is a stage of longing for players. If it’s a tournament like that, the players will want to go anytime.”

When the reporters burst into laughter, director Kim emphasized again that he was sincere. He said, “I have always said to players who say that it is difficult to be selected for the national team, it is an ‘honorable position’,” he said, “because it is a position that no one can go to.”

He added, “I believe that (Kim) Gwanghyeon or (Choi) Jeongi will do well. Rather, I think better results will come out if we shake off the sense of responsibility and pressure.”
