023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) Kim Hyeon-soo (35, LG Twins), who was dropped as the captain of the World Baseball Classic (WBC), threw a boner at Choo Shin-soo (41, SSG Landers)’s remarks about the generational change of the national team.
Kim Hyun-soo, who appeared at Incheon International Airport Terminal 1 on the 30th to attend the LG Twins Spring Camp held in Ariju, USA, expressed this opinion to the reporters.
First of all, Kim Hyun-soo said of Shin-soo Choo’s remarks, “I think it is an extremely personal self-remark.”
“Someone said, ‘I’m not going. I’ll leave’ because it’s not possible to get out this way,” he said, “all generational changes should happen naturally.” Furthermore, he threw a fastball, saying, “I think it’s better for a player with skills to go out rather than a player with skills not to go out.”
Earlier, on the 21st, Choo Shin-soo appeared on DKNET, a Korean radio station in Dallas, USA, and expressed his opinion on various issues in the baseball world, such as the domestic baseball team’s generational change theory and the alleged controversy over school violence by An Woo-jin (23, Kiwoom Heroes). Controversy continues to this day.
Regarding the selection of Kim Hyun-soo for the WBC national team, Choo Shin-soo said, “If you look at Japan, there are many new faces once you play an international tournament. Kim Hyun-soo is a really good player, but if it were me, he would have seen the future. He noted that there should have been more players who would have had to be picked up.” 메이저사이트
Furthermore, “How long are Kim Gwang-hyun (34, SSG Landers) and Yang Hyeon-jong (34, KIA Tigers)? It’s not that these players lack skills. There are a lot of talented players among the young players. “When you go to an international tournament like the WBC, the feelings and mindset of young players change.”
He also pointed out, “It is Korean baseball’s job to make players like Moon Dong-ju (19, Hanwha Eagles) and Ahn Woo-jin shine in international competitions so that they can go abroad.”
At the same time, regarding Ahn Woo-jin, he said, “I definitely did something wrong,” but “as a third person, it is very regrettable. In a way, he is a player with the talent to go abroad and become the second best player after Park Chan-ho. I am also playing baseball in Korea, but there are so many things I don’t understand.”
