Choo Shin-soo (40, SSG)’s remarks made on a radio show in the US are causing much controversy in Korea.
This is because Choo Shin-soo’s remarks on the Korean radio station ‘DKNET’ in Dallas, Texas, on the 21st (Korean time) are not gaining consensus from the public. At the same time, some claims are causing controversy because they do not properly grasp the facts.
In this broadcast, Choo Shin-soo said, ‘It seems that forgiveness is not easy in Korea.’, ‘Not everyone who was born early is a senior.’ He made several high-level remarks such as ‘WBC should have picked a new player’. However, most of them, except for some, are pointed out that they are views that eventually represent some opinions in the baseball world, or 바카라사이트 that they reveal individual misunderstood views.
Even if the problems of the controversial remarks about the actual selection of An Woo-jin (24, Kiwoom) are set aside, there is an issue that Choo Shin-soo continues to point out after spending considerable time on the grounds of ‘generational change’. It is that the national team mound needs a new face, but if you look at the facts, the meaning of the claim is faded because it is different from the reality.
This is because the members of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team pitcher entry are the youngest mound in the history of the competition, with young guns more than ever.
Of the final 30 players, 15 were pitchers. 8 righties, 2 sidearms, 5 lefties.
Among them, only four pitchers are over the age of 30. Simply put, the average age of 15 pitchers in the national team is 26.1 years old, which is very young. By far, the average age is the lowest among all four WBC national team pitching entries.
