“If I go to Japan and meet them, I really want to insult them.”스포츠토토
The 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) Korean baseball team conducted its first official training on the 15th (local time) at the Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona, USA.
On this day, the pitching team warmed up lightly by digesting catch balls and running training in the morning. Koo Chang-mo, who met with reporters after morning training, said, “It’s the first time I’ve worn the Taegeuk mark since 2017, and it seems to be very different from then. I feel more proud.”
Gu Chang-mo has painful memories from international competitions. In the opening match against Japan at the 2017 Asian Professional Baseball Championship (APBC), Koo Chang-mo took the mound as the second pitcher. However, he was beaten by a two-run home run by opponent No. 4 hitter Yamakawa Hotaka and was chased 4-3. The national team eventually suffered a 7-8 defeat after extra time.
Koo Chang-mo did not forget the Korea-Japan match six years ago. He said, “If I go to the Korea-Japan match, I have to win no matter what. I said it once before, but I can’t lose even a rock-paper-scissors match against Japan. I was right, but that player entered the roster again. If I go to Japan and meet, I really want to take revenge.”
Gu Chang-mo reunites with Yang Eui-ui in his national team. Gu Chang-mo and Yang Eui-ji worked together at the NC Dinos for three years. Yang Eui-ji signed a free agent contract with Doosan Bears in November last year and said goodbye to NC.
Regarding breathing with Eui-ji Yang, Chang-mo Koo expressed his anticipation, saying, “It is a great help to me.
The national team will play a practice match against NC on the 16th. Gu Chang-mo does not play against his team. He explained, “I don’t throw because I think the match against NC will be burdensome.
The national team plays against the KIA Tigers on the 19th after playing a practice game with NC. If there is no abnormality in Gu Chang-mo’s physical condition, there is a high possibility that he will appear before the KIA.
