“I’ve never thought of coming here to showcase myself, and all I can think of is that I really have to win.”바카라사이트
KBO League MVP Lee Jung-hoo has arrived in Japan, the land of the decisive battle. On the afternoon of the 4th, the WBC baseball team will prepare for the full-scale tournament through Kansai International Airport in Osaka, Japan. The national team, which conducts open training at the Buffaloes Stadium in Maishima on the 5th, will play evaluation matches against Nippon Professional Baseball teams on the 6th and 7th.
Lee Jung-hoo is also a hitter who is wary of Japan, the opponent of the second match of the first round. In an interview with reporters right after arriving, he said, “Now I feel a bit like the real tournament is starting. I think I have to work hard.” .
The check of his opponents is great, but the expectations he receives within the national team as a key hitter are also high. It is an atmosphere that can feel heavy pressure on players. Since Lee Jung-hoo swept various individual titles, including last year’s league MVP, this international competition can be even more special. However, Lee Jung-hoo replied coolly. “I only have a sense of responsibility, no pressure,” he emphasized.
The reason why his WBC is attracting attention is that he announced that he will advance overseas after the end of this season. After consulting with his team, Kiwoom Heroes, Lee Jung-hoo decided to take on the challenge. The direction is highly likely to be the major league where his close senior Kim Ha-seong is playing. The WBC is a tournament that major league clubs are watching with interest. Depending on Lee Jung-hoo’s performance, higher conditions may be attached to overseas expansion. The expression ‘Lee Jung-hoo showcase’ is the reason why the story comes out. However, Lee Jung-hoo was adamant. “I don’t know why it’s called my showcase. I just came here to play against the national team, and I don’t have the thought that I have to show myself. The only thought is that I have to win unconditionally,” he said, focusing more on his attitude as a national representative.
