Future major leaguers, current major leaguers, and former major leaguers all gather to lead the WBC national team batting line.
The 30 WBC final entries announced by the KBO consist of 15 pitchers and 15 fielders. Everyone is a player who goes beyond the starting lineup and plays a central role in the team.
It’s not easy to pick nine of these good hitters. Pick the best players for each position, and create a batting order to match their batting.
The most important thing is the top line. WBC national team coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “I don’t think the batting line is as bad as before.”
Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom), MVP of the KBO league, Kim Ha-seong (San Diego), who is gradually showing his ability in the major leagues, and Tommy Hyun-soo Edman (St. ) Hyun-soo Kim (LG) and Ji-man Choi (Pittsburgh).
After finishing this season,슬롯사이트 Lee Jung-hoo will qualify for posting. He has already requested the club to advance overseas through posting, and the club agrees and plans to advance to the major leagues after this season. Already, many major league clubs are showing great interest in Lee Jung-hoo. And I think this WBC will be a very good showcase.
Kim Ha-seong entered the major leagues ahead of Lee Jung-hoo and is on a successful path. Kim Ha-seong, who entered the major leagues by signing a contract with San Diego in 2021 for a large sum of up to $39 million in 4+1 years, is captivating fans with his excellent defense. He’s getting better at hitting too. Kim Ha-seong, who had a batting average of 2.25 with 54 hits, 8 homers and 34 RBIs in the first year, posted a batting average of .251 with 130 hits, 11 homers and 59 RBIs last year.
Edmund made his big league debut in 2019 and gradually established himself as a starter. In 2021, he received the second baseman’s Gold Glove, and his defensive skills were also recognized.
Choi Ji-man couldn’t play many games last year due to surgery, but he showed his clutch ability enough to serve as the 4th hitter in Tampa Bay.
Former major leaguer Park Byung-ho and Kim Hyun-soo will play the central role here. Park Byeong-ho showed an impressive appearance in the major leagues with his great distance, and Kim Hyun-soo recorded a batting average of 30% in the major leagues as well.
Expectations for the WBC national team are high as a major league-level batting line has been created. Can Korea regain its former glory in the WBC with a hot blow?
