The voice of Hanwha captain Jung Woo-ram (38) was full of confidence. Jung Woo-ram raised his voice at the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO Media Day’ held at Grand Hyatt Seoul, Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul on the 30th, saying, “Hanwha will produce the most national representatives in the future.”
On this day, 안전놀이터the representative players of the 10 clubs who attended the media day were asked, “How is the condition of the players who have been to the World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team?” A question that may be embarrassing for Hanwha players. This is because no Hanwha player has been to the WBC national team this year.
However, Jung Woo-ram talked about the ‘future’. “I assure you, within the next three years, I think the national team will produce the most in our team,” said Jung Woo-ram, “everyone is working hard with that dream.”
Hanwha has many young and promising players. Here, veteran players recruited as free agents give generous advice and give young players wings. Jung Woo-ram said, “(Chae) Eun-seong is passing on his experience well, and (Lee) Tae-yang and (Oh) Sun-jin are also telling us a lot.” I want to show you,” he said.
Chae Eun-seong, who sat at Media Day with Jung Woo-ram, said, “It is true that I had preconceived notions when I first moved to Hanwha. But if I do it with confidence, I think the future is bright.”
Although not a single player from Hanwha was on the WBC team this year, Hanwha is growing up with future national players such as Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun. Truly, as Jung Woo-ram said, the day may come when Hanwha produces the most national players. This season marks the third year of manager Carlos Subero’s tenure. Hanwha is moving forward with the goal of fall baseball. If the addition of the three free agents and the growth of young players are accompanied, Hanwha may also achieve more than expected this year, leaving behind the regret of staying at the bottom for three consecutive years.
