Choo Shin-soo (SSG) became the main character of the issue during the Lunar New Year holiday.
Choo Shin-soo revealed his candid thoughts about his personal beliefs about the World Baseball Classic (WBC) team and the controversy over his national team’s ‘eating and running’, but he is receiving more criticism and backlash than fans’ support.
Choo Shin-soo recently appeared on a Korean radio broadcast in Dallas, Texas, expressing regret that young pitchers such as Ahn Woo-jin and Moon Dong-ju were excluded from the WBC team. The KBO did not select Ahn Woo-jin, who took off as the best ace in the league, to the national team due to the burden of controversy over school violence in high school.
Regarding this, Choo Shin-soo said, “Ahn Woo-jin clearly did the wrong thing. He did something wrong when he was young, but now he’s remorseful, he’s been punished, he’s been suspended. However, he is unable to represent the country. It seems that forgiveness is not easy in Korea.” “There is something I want to say to my seniors. If there is a junior who is being treated unreasonably, he thinks he should step up. But no one is stepping up,” he said confidently.
The selection of Ahn Woo-jin for the national team is a controversial issue with pros and cons. As a veteran, you can bring out your opinion, and you can reveal your convictions. An Woo-jin’s case is a problem that will continue to be considered in the future.
However, Shin-soo Choo’s explanation of his national team’s ‘eating and running’ is a poor excuse. He explained at length about his absence from the 2017 WBC due to his injury, but there was no excuse for not attending the 2013 WBC following his exemption from military service. The absence of participation in the 2013 WBC tournament was the main reason fans pointed out for the national team eating and running.온라인바카라
Shin-soo Choo wore the Taegeuk mark while playing in the major leagues on two occasions: the 2009 WBC and the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games.
During the 2009 WBC, Choo Shin-soo overcame the opposition of his team, Cleveland, and joined the national team on the condition that he participate from the second round and only play as a designated hitter (due to an elbow injury). He showed off his long hitting power, such as a three-run home run against Venezuela in the semifinals and a solo home run against Japan in the final. He had a low batting average of 1.8 and 8 Lee (3 hits in 16 at-bats), but had two home runs among his three hits.
In the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games, he made a big success, such as hitting an overwhelming home run against Taiwanese and Chinese pitchers with the high level of skill of a major leaguer. In five games, he batted 5.7, 1 Lee, 8 hits in 14 at-bats (3 homers), 11 RBI, 8 runs scored, and won the gold medal with computer game-like performance. By winning the gold medal, he received the long-awaited exemption from military service.
