Grandson of the Wind’ Lee Jeong-hoo (Kiwoom) delivered his impressions after finishing the World Baseball Classic (WBC).
The WBC team, led by coach Lee Kang-cheol, was placed in Group B in the first round along with Australia, Japan, the Czech Republic and China. Korea won the 22-2, 5th cold game victory in the last game of the first round Group B group stage against China held at the Tokyo Dome in Japan on the 13th. However, following 2013 and 2017, it left a disappointing result of being eliminated in the first round for three consecutive years. 메이저놀이터

Thank you for your hard work.”
Meanwhile, coach Lee Kang-cheol said in an interview after returning to Korea, “All I can say is that I’m sorry. While we were together, we prepared really well, and the players seem to have practiced a lot as much as ever. The players tried to build up their bodies quickly. The results came out like this, but the players They did really well, so now I ask the players to exercise some restraint.”
He continued, “Please blame me. Players now have to play baseball again. We have to play the KBO league. In the future, there will be Asian Games in the fall of this year. The results came out. You can blame me. The players showed off (my skills).”

If you continue to play through international competitions such as the Asian Games, you can show your skills more and more. Everyone has excellent skills. They will grow well and produce good results.”
