“I really want to do well. I risked life and death.”
SSG ‘signboard hitter’ Choi Jeong (36) is improving his condition ahead of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC). It was to the extent that something went wrong with the body. Seem to be under a lot of stress. so desperate
Choi Jeong-eun is the only ‘pure third baseman’ in the WBC team. Previously, there were Hwang Jae-gyun (KT) and Heo Gyeong-min (Doosan), but this time Choi Jeong is alone. In the case of Heo Gyeong-min, selection was strong, but he could not join the national team due to a back injury.
In a good way, it is an opportunity to make a name for yourself in international competitions. Ha-seong Kim and others can play as a third baseman, but they are different from players who have only seen third base. In the case of Kim Ha-seong, it would be more ideal to form a keystone combination with Tommy Edman.
It was the 2009 WBC that he was selected for the national team for the first time. He left a disappointment with 7 at-bats, no hits and 1 RBI. He also competed in the 2013 WBC. This time he went 2-for-6 with a .333 batting average and one RBI. He will return to the WBC after 10 years. This time, he is the steadfast third baseman.
You can also look upside down. If Choi Jeong is sluggish, it also means that there is no proper answer. Choi Jeong himself is paying a lot of attention to this part. It seems to have become a ‘last bastion’. I’m risking my life for this. to spleen
Choi Jeong-eun슬롯사이트, whom we met at SSG’s Florida spring camp, said, “This is the first WBC in 10 years since 2013. He takes on more responsibility. he should be really good Especially this time, I am the only third baseman. Previously, there was (Hwang) Jae-kyun and (Heo) Kyung-min. I want to do well. Until the day he returns to Korea, he emphasized, “I hope he goes out as a third baseman and does well.”
Regarding the WBC, “I remember the 2009 WBC as a pleasant tournament. It was more so after the team performance. It was my first national team, and I went all the way to the finals and finished runner-up. The 2013 WBC is a qualifying elimination. It was so empty that I can’t remember if I played the game. The WBC is a tournament that is a really good experience if you get results.”
I really want to do well, so I’m preparing really hard. At the same time, there was something wrong with the body. “Everything has to be good. I think I got sick because I tried to upload it quickly. I also get stressed. I can’t do it during camp practice games or demonstration games. I’m worried that I won’t be able to do it at the WBC,” he said, hardening his expression.
He continued, “It’s because I have a lot of determination. I risked my life. The burden is great. So it looks dark. I still don’t remember doing well in the national team. I really want to do well. There is no third baseman besides me, so if I can’t do it, it won’t help the team. It should never happen,” he explained.
Heo Gyeong-min was resentful because he had a lot of thoughts. “It really was. I watched ‘The Strongest Baseball’ and he ran with all his might after hitting. ‘Is it true that my back hurts’, he said. Before, the three of us, including Jaekyun and Kyungmin, said to each other, “I think you’re going out,” but now I’m alone. I want to do well.” He smiled. The left middle also exploded with ‘bread’.
There is no other third baseman, but a fellow fielder goes with it. Choi Ji-hoon was selected as a substitute. “If the bad mood was about 100, (Choi) Ji-hoon went with him and it decreased to about 50,” he laughed outwardly and said, “(Kim) Gwang-hyeon also goes, but the pitching and fielding teams have different schedules. The same beast, Ji-hoon, went. As soon as the announcement came out, he said, ‘Take care of me’. Ji-hoon said, ‘I will go every day’” and smiled again.
