‘Tokyo catastrophe’ Korean baseball, the reality of the ‘Ahn Woo-jin controversy’ resummoned
The Korean baseball team, which crashed endlessly in Tokyo.
The national team that failed to break through the 토토사이트 group stage in the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) returned home on the 14th. On this day, WBC coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “I can only say sorry. I hope you will refrain from criticizing the players.” It was my return to Korea 10 days after leaving the country on the 4th with the ‘dream of blue luck’ of advancing to the WBC semifinals.
The result of this competition is also the result, but it is true that we were not prepared at all from the contents of the match. Baseball fans were outraged beyond disappointment with reactions such as ‘The pitching staff was the worst’ and ‘It was a frog in the well’.
Some point out the pitcher lineup and say that Woojin Ahn (Kiwoom Heroes) should have been selected.
Last season, Ahn Woo-jin marked an average ERA of 2.11 with 15 wins and embraced the Golden Glove in the pitching category. He was a skill that should have been selected for the national team, but he was not named to the final 30-man list for the WBC national team due to ‘school violence’.
◆ Controversy over not selecting An Woo-jin resurfaced, divided opinion
First of all, the Korean national team’s pitchers played a poor game against Japan on the 11th, and the opinion is that only An Woo-jin is the pitcher who can block the Japanese batting line, which drove them to the brink of a cold game. Baseball fans claim, “If Ahn Woo-jin had existed, he could have won against Australia.”
The opposite position is the claim that draws a line that the Korean national team disaster and the non-selection of Ahn Woo-jin are unrelated. It is the opinion that it does not make sense to recall it because the results of the national team game were not good even though it was not selected due to ‘academic violence issue’ rather than performance.
The problem is that Ahn Woo-jin is eligible for the Golden Glove Award, but he is not eligible for the national team. In the end, public opinion can only be the criterion.
<Baseball Fan 1 Interview: I think we should give it one more chance. The problem of school violence is really serious right now… The school violence that happens to the children of the political world now goes to Seoul National University and lives in a row. If you live with your talent and pay it back for the rest of your life, isn’t it natural to give one person several chances? I also think that it is necessary to have such a national character or a broad-minded national character.>
<Baseball Fan 2 Interview: I think this is really ambiguous in the case of Ahn Woo-jin. It’s not like Lee Young-ha and other players are doing it legally, and the judgment has been received before and testimonies are coming out again… But since Ahn Woo-jin wasn’t selected, I think it’s better to just self-restraint in terms of social conventions and professional baseball popularity awards. . >
