The 2023 WBC (World Baseball Classic) national team had a rest day after their first real match.
The national team, led by coach Lee Kang-cheol, had its first rest day after the convocation on the 18th (hereafter Korean time). The national team, which had been training and practicing for two days at the Kino Sports카지노 Complex in Tucson, Arizona, USA, took a break without a separate schedule. Not only players who trained in Australia, Japan, and Guam for the convocation of the national team, but also players who had their team’s spring camp schedule in the US, spent time preparing for the upcoming training by conserving their stamina.
The national team was convened in Tucson on the 15th and had its first training the next day. On the 17th, we had our first practice game against NC Dinos at the Keno Veteran Memorial Stadium. In this 7-inning game, the national team is Kwang-Hyun Kim (SSG Landers) – Young-Pyo Ko (KT Wiz) – Cheol-Won Jeong (Doosan Bears) – Tae-In Won (Samsung Lions) – Woo-Young Jung (LG Twins) – Eui-Ri Lee (KIA Tigers) – Woo-Seok Ko (LG) took the mound one after another, and focused on raising the sense of practice while utilizing most of the fielders. In this match, the national team won 8-2 with Kang Baek-ho (KT)’s two-run gun and Choi Jeong (SSG)’s solo shot.
On the 19th, the national team will have a two-stroke training at the Kino Sports Complex, and will have a second practice match against KIA at the Kino Veteran Memorial Stadium on the 20th. On the 23rd and 25th, they had two practice games with KT, and on the 27th, they played against LG.
