Tokyo→Incheon→Ganghwa→Changwon, SSG national team 3 finally joined the 1st team

After a long journey, the three national team members of SSG Landers finally returned to their team. I’ll be going to a test match soon.

There were a total of 3 players from SSG 메이저사이트 who participated in the WBC (World Baseball Classic) as the national team. Pitcher Kim Gwang-hyeon, infielder Choi Jeong, and outfielder Choi Ji-hoon. In the initially announced 30-man entry, there were only the names of Kim Gwang-hyun and Choi Jeong-in, but as major leaguer Choi Ji-man failed to join the team, Choi Ji-hoon was additionally selected. In early February, they moved from Vero Beach, Florida, the site of SSG’s spring camp, to Tucson, Arizona, the site of the national team’s camp. From Tucson to Seoul, and then back to Japan, the national team had a forced march.

The baseball team, which was eliminated in the first round of the WBC, returned home through Incheon International Airport on the 14th. The three national team members of SSG also took a short break after returning to Korea, but it is a situation where they cannot take a long break. This is because the exhibition games are in full swing and the opening of the regular season is just around the corner. It was necessary to quickly recover from fatigue and adjust the senses as to when to start fighting.

Kim Gwang-hyeon, Choi Jeong, and Choi Ji-hoon each took a day off on the 15th, and on the 16th they did light training at the 2nd Army Stadium in Ganghwa. Needless to say, SSG has a rough (?) schedule for this exhibition game. This is because it is a 10-game series of regional expeditions leading to Daegu-Busan-Changwon-Daejeon-Gwangju. The trio, who did not immediately join the squad, moved to Changwon on the afternoon of the 17th and finished joining the first team on the 18th. SSG played two consecutive matches against NC Dinos in Changwon on the 18th and 19th. They did not play the game, but only checked their current physical condition and condition lightly at the baseball field. Coach Won-hyung Kim plans to adjust the full-fledged game schedule from the 19th.

The focus is Kim Gwang-hyun’s condition. Beasts Choi Jeong and Choi Ji-hoon will continue to play in the WBC, playing both offense and defense. As long as they recover from fatigue, they will not have any major problems playing in the match. On the other hand, Kim Gwang-hyun, who has to play an active role as a starting pitcher in SSG, has to raise the number of pitches again and adjust the pitching time. In the national team, he could not play many games due to the pitch limit and limited opportunities to pitch.
