Lee Kang-cheol-ho’s first departure today… Beyond Australia, will it cross the 8th division ridge in the quarterfinals?
The day of the showdown had dawned. Lee Kang-cheol begins his voyage to Miami for the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC). The first opponent is Australia (12 noon on the 9th).
National team coach Lee Kang-cheol 메이저사이트 said at a press conference held at the Tokyo Dome in Japan on the 8th, “I am nervous, but I think it is light tension.” “I have prepared well. The players also prepared with confidence and will step out with a spleen resolution.” Regarding the strengths of this national team, “The beast has a solid defense, quick feet and long hitting power, and the players are well harmonized. As for the pitcher, the old and the new are well harmonized between the veteran and the young gun.”
In terms of objective strength, Korea is ahead of Australia. The Australian national team has weakened significantly compared to the previous tournament, with Liam Hendricks (Chicago White Sox), one of the best bullpen pitchers in the major leagues, unable to play due to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (blood cancer). Manager Lee Kang-cheol said, “It is said that Korea has an advantage over Australia in terms of power, but baseball does not know that. I will work with the thought of fighting the absolute strongest.”
