“Ahn Woo-jin, you have to show your face at international competitions… ” Choo Shin-soo’s intentional remarks, ‘unintelligible’ to the WBC

“He has the talent to become the next best player after Park Chan-ho… ”

SSG star Shin-soo Choo poured out his thoughts about the climate related to the selection and management of the Korean baseball team. On the 21st (Korean time), Choo Shin-soo appeared on the radio program ‘DKNET’ in Dallas, Texas, USA, and boldly expressed his opinion about the issue of Ahn Woo-jin (Kiwoom), the ‘hot potato of Korean baseball’, selected for the national team.

Ahn Woo-jin virtually lost his qualifications to be selected for the national team due to the school violence issue during Whimoon High School. In the case of the WBC, which does not have the right to select players from the Korea Baseball Softball Association, there is no problem with Ahn Woo-jin’s participation. However, the KBO did not include An Woo-jin in the final 30 entries, conscious of the bad public opinion related to the school violence issue.토토사이트

Choo Shin-soo first pointed out that Korean baseball is too conservative in selecting young players with potential. “How long are Kim Kwang-hyun (SSG) and Yang Hyeon-jong (KIA)? Articles were also published in Japan. There is another Kim Kwang-hyun. When I experienced Korean baseball, there are an amazing number of talented players among young players. That’s why players like that can’t do it.”

Continuing, Choo Shin-soo said, “If you participate in international competitions such as the WBC and the Asian Games from a young age, the emotions and minds of the players change enormously. Then these players go to the tournament and come back and have things to do in Korean baseball. For example, in the case of Moon Dong-ju (Hanwha), they say that his control is a bit lacking, but from my point of view, there are no pitchers who can throw that much.”
