World Baseball Classic (WBC) The Korean baseball team wore a uniform with the word ‘Korea’ written on it and played for the first time in real life, adjusting their condition.

On the 17th (Korean time), the baseball team led by coach Lee Kang-cheol played its first match against the professional baseball NC Dinos at the Veterans Memorial Stadium in Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona, USA and won 8-2.

After training for one day just two days after the national team was summoned, the national team will have four more practice matches here with the KIA Tigers (20th), kt wiz (23rd and 25th), and the LG Twins (27th). .

Manager Lee Kang-cheol took a break on this day to smoothly replace players as two infielders, Ha-seong Kim (San Diego Padres)바카라사이트 and Tommy Hyun-su Edman (St. Three kt wiz players who were working were selected to play the game.

As agreed in advance by head coach Lee Kang-cheol and NC head coach Kang In-kwon, the game was played in 7 innings, in line with the condition check of the pitchers of the national team.

The 7 pitchers of the national team were responsible for each inning by filling a certain amount of pitches regardless of the out count.

It was also the first time that pitchers threw the WBC official ball in a real game, and threw the ball after applying mud on a slippery surface just like in a real tournament.

Kwang-Hyun Kim (SSG Landers), Young-Pyo Ko (kt), Cheol-Won Jeong (Doosan Bears), Tae-In Won (Samsung Lions), Woo-Young Jung (LG), Eui-Ri Lee (KIA), and Woo-Seok Ko (LG) climbed the mound in turn to check their pitches.

Kim Gwang-hyeon threw the most balls with 21, and Ko Young-pyo threw the fewest with 16.

Pitchers who have warmed up their shoulders in their team’s spring camp have been practicing with the WBC official ball, but they have had difficulties in actual games where they throw batters standing upright.

Coach Lee Kang-cheol introduced that he had no major difficulties when throwing a two-seam fastball, but had difficulties using the slider.

Jung Woo-young allowed 2 hits and 1 ball that hit the body, allowing 2 runs (unearned). Kim Gwang-hyun, Ko Young-pyo, and Won Tae-in each struck out two.

The batting lineup is Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom Heroes, center fielder) – Oh Ji-hwan (LG, shortstop) – Choi Jeong (SSG, third baseman) – Park Byung-ho (kt, designated hitter) – Kim Hyun-soo (LG, left fielder) – Na Seong-beom (KIA, right fielder) – Kang Baek-ho ( KT · 1st base) ~ Lee Ji-young (catcher) ~ Kim Hye-seong (Kiwoom Lee, 2nd baseman) in order.

Like manager Lee Kang-cheol’s assessment that the hitters’ pace has improved more than the pitchers’, the batters hit the NC mound vigorously with 14 hits.

Kang Baek-ho raised the sense of hitting by drawing a solo arch over the left fence, while Baek-ho Kang hit the first two-run four in the middle right.

Park Hae-min, who replaced Lee Jung-hoo, who had Kang Baek-ho with 2 hits in 4 at-bats and no hits in 2 at-bats, showed off his good batting sense by scoring 2 hits in 3 at-bats.

Except for Lee Jeong-hoo, all 8 starting batters had 1 hit each, and among the substitutes, Eui-ji Yang (Doosan) and Ji-hoon Choi (SSG) remained no hits in 2 at-bats.

On this day’s game, scouts from 9 MLB clubs and reporters from Japan’s TBS broadcasting station came to analyze Korea’s power from the WBC, reflecting keen interest.

The national team takes a day off on the 18th, and from the 19th they continue training with a three-day training and one-day rest pattern.
