Kang Baek-ho (24 kt Wiz) held the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League Media Day’ held at the Grand Hyatt Seoul in Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul on the 30th. attended
Kang Baek-ho went through many twists and turns last year. He was unable to play for about two months due to an injury before the season opener, and a month after his return, he was again knocked down with an injury and was sidelined for 30 days. Entry cancellation period only 79 days. 먹튀검증
The off-season 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) team also failed to reverse the atmosphere. In the first round of Group B of the ‘2023 WBC’ group stage against Australia, after one out at the end of the 7th inning when the team fell behind 4-5, Choi Jeong-ui stood at bat. He hit a double that hit the middle fence and fell, but fell off the base during the ceremony and was tagged out. He received a lot of criticism for his play that instantly poured cold water on the heated team dugout.
Kang Baek-ho, whom we met after the official Media Day event, emphasized the ‘result’ of his play. And as the result felt his last weight more desperately than ever, he pledged to rebound.
Kang Baek-ho said, “All players always do their best when preparing for competitions. I saw great potential in ” and learned a lot. Not only me, but the team prepared well, so please look forward to the team.”
“Last year, I had a lot of injuries, so I diligently prepared for the season. Also, I think I need to take better care of my body (as much as I suffered from injuries). I will play the game with one mind, looking at a higher place than fall baseball with the players without injury.”
Off-season Kang Baek-ho changes his position. He gets out of the infield, puts on his outfield glove, and goes out on the field. It is the first full-time outfielder since the 2019 season. “The team has the best first baseman (Park Byeong-ho) in the KBO League. I thought it would be better to take turns playing defense rather than designated hitter to ease the burden on the players. I think I will prepare well and prepare hard to show that the team is a team that can look forward to the presidency.”
Lastly, Kang Baek-ho said, “My biggest goal is not to be left out of the first team entry. And I will show a good image in front of many fans. I don’t have a specific goal, but I think that the power that the team can win is enough, and the biggest goal is to win the championship.” I will keep working hard,” he stressed.
