SBS commentator Lee Dae-ho (41), ‘Joseon’s No.
The Korean baseball team won the World Baseball Classic (WBC) Group B match against the Czech Republic 7-3 at the Tokyo Dome in Japan on the 12th. This is the valuable first win after losing against Australia (7-8) and against Japan (4-13).
Commentator Lee Dae-ho, who relayed the match against the Czech Republic, expressed his candid feelings about the poor performance of the WBC team through an interview on the YouTube channel ‘Video Mug’ immediately after the match.
Regarding the reason for the national team’s sluggish performance in this tournament, Lee Dae-ho said, “(Pitchers) have too many walks. I think the fact that they threw the ball from the mound but couldn’t throw it where they wanted to was itself a bit lacking as a national team member.” .
He also pointed out the attitude of the Korean professional baseball system and players compared to the United States and Japan. He said, “In the US, there are 6 to 7 stages from the major league to the minor league, and in Japan, the 2nd, 3rd, and nurturing teams are operated. He said, “Korea keeps trying to eliminate the difference between the 1st and 2nd teams by giving them a chance to become the 1st team if they do as little as possible. I oppose that.”
He also said, “Just because you came to the 1st team, you are not a 1st team player. You have to do well in the 1st team for several years to become a 1st team player, but if you play a little in the 1st team, you can see many people who think you are a 1st team player and settle down. I hope there is no such thing.” did.
Regarding excessive criticism, Lee Dae-ho left a sincere bitter voice, saying, “Criticism is definitely a performance that deserves. (The national team) will be prepared to receive that criticism.” In addition, he left a request to baseball fans, saying, “Our players will also put in more effort, so I hope you will expect them while criticizing them.”안전놀이터
On the other hand, Korea is about to play against China in the last game of the WBC group stage, which will be held at 7:00 pm on the 13th. In the Australia-Czech match held earlier at 12:00 p.m., if the Czech Republic wins by allowing Australia more than 4 runs in 9 innings (27 outs), Korea can miraculously claim a ticket to the quarterfinals.
If the Czech Republic beat Australia 4-3, Korea and Australia will be eliminated and the Czech Republic will advance to the quarterfinals. If Australia wins, they will advance to the quarterfinals as runners-up in Group B.
