“As a national team player, dignity is just as important as skill.”
The Korean national team, led by head coach Ryu Joong-il, was held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 24th, the second day of preparation for the Hangzhou Asian Games.
After completing their first training session after convening on the 23rd, the team had breakfast and lunch at their accommodation and moved to Gocheok Sky Dome.
The arrival time at Gocheok Dome is around 2:30 p.m. The first players the reporters met were Hanwha Eagles batter Noh Si-hwan and pitcher Moon Dong-ju. On the second day of training, the two players had an official interview as team representatives. 스포츠토토
After the interview with the two players ended, the team began full-fledged training, including weight training and catch ball. The training schedule for the national team was shared by KBO.
A noticeable phrase was identified on the schedule table. Under the dinner timetable after returning to Hotek at 6 p.m., he wrote, “Dignity as a national team player is as important as skills.” “One Team Korea,” he added.
The Korean national team has been controversial in every international competition. During the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, Kang Baek-ho was caught on the broadcast screen while chewing gum while watching his teammates play in the dugout during the game. He could chew gum, but he looked regrettable to stimulate fans at the risk of his team losing.
In addition, Kang Baek-ho was criticized for “walking base” and “ceremony history” at the 2023 World Baseball Classic. It was a disappointing attitude for baseball fans to watch on the spot and on TV.
In addition, not only Kang Baek-ho but also SSG Landers ace Kim Kwang-hyun was embroiled in a “drinking scandal” where he took his junior Jung Chul-won to drink, and eventually apologized and was disciplined.
The KBO Reward and Punishment Committee was held and disciplined for three national baseball team players (Kim Kwang-hyun, Jung Chul-won, and Lee Yong-chan) who caused a drinking controversy during the WBC tournament based on Article 151 of the KBO Code.
Literally, international competitions are not only watched by Korean baseball fans. Therefore, you have to be careful not only on the ground but also outside. Even the slightest thing can turn into a big controversy. Is it because of that. KBO included a request statement ahead of the Hangzhou Asian Games tournament.
