Lee Jung-hoo (24) drew attention as the best player on the baseball team participating in the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC).먹튀검증
On the 8th, the official homepage of Major League Baseball selected the top players for each participating country in celebration of the opening of the WBC. It means the best star in the team and the notable player who will be the most active in this tournament.
Korea, which belongs to Group B, has two major leaguers, Kim Ha-seong (San Diego) and Tommy Edman (St. Louis). However, Lee Jung-hoo drew attention.
The official homepage of Major League Baseball introduced Lee Jung-hoo as “in 2017, he won five Golden Gloves as the KBO League Rookie of the Year, and last season, he batted 0.349 with an OPS of 0.996, hit 23 home runs, and won the league MVP.” “After this season, I received the club’s consent to advance to the major leagues. The last thing Lee Jung-hoo can do for Korea is to take the WBC championship title.”
Also, “Lee Jung-hoo is called the grandson of the wind. His father, Lee Jong-beom, was a Korean baseball legend, the son of Wind. By the time Lee Jung-hoo finishes this tournament, he can become a global topic and become the number 1 hitter in the major league free agent market next winter.”
Lee Jung-hoo denied it, saying, “They said that the evaluation of me was already over,” but America’s interest in Lee Jung-hoo in this tournament is so high that even the official website of the major leagues pays attention to him as the best player. This WBC is expected to be a kind of showcase where Lee Jung-hoo, who is actually challenging to enter the major leagues, can raise his value to infinity, rather than publicize himself.
In Japan, Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels) was selected. In the Czech Republic, pitcher and infielder Martin Schneider was chosen. The official homepage of Major League Baseball explained, “Schneider is the best pitcher and shortstop in the history of Czech baseball, but he will only play as a pitcher in this tournament.” In China, all-round infielder Luo Jin-jin was selected.
Major League stars such as Mike Trout (LA Angels) from the United States, Julio Rodriguez (Seattle) from the Dominican Republic, Xander Bogatz (San Diego) from the Netherlands, and Ronald Acuna Jr. (Atlanta) from Venezuela were listed on the list
