KT=Korea Team? Only the national university produced a whopping 8 people… The devotion of the wizard corps ‘stands out’ [Oh!Ssen Tucson]

The 2023 WBC (World Baseball Classic) Korean national baseball team is a hot topic because there is a club that has produced as many as eight people, including managers, coaches, players, trainers, and bullpen catchers.바카라

The club that produced the most players in the 2023 WBC Korean baseball team is the LG Twins. Six players, including three pitchers (Ko Woo-seok, Jung Woo-young, and Kim Yun-sik) and three fielders (Oh Ji-hwan, Kim Hyun-soo, and Park Hae-min), took up 20% of the total entry (30 players) with the Taegeuk mark. It was followed by KT (4 people) – Doosan, Kiwoom, NC, KIA, SSG (more than 3 people) – Lotte (2 people) – Samsung (1 person). 

However, when the coaches and staff of the national team are combined, the number 1 changes. KT, which produced four national team members, Park Byeong-ho, Ko Young-pyo, Kang Baek-ho, and Sohn So-jun, has a total of eight members, including head coach Lee Kang-cheol, Kim Ki-tae hitting coach, Hong Joo-seong trainer, and Kang Jae-wook bullpen catcher, wearing the Taegeuk mark and dedicating themselves to the country. 

They showed their presence from the first official training session of the national team held at Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona, USA on the 16th (hereafter Korean time). Coach Ki-tae Kim was in charge of field team training under the overall direction of coach Kang-cheol Lee, and bullpen catcher Jae-wook Kang became So-joon’s first bullpen pitching partner. At the same time, trainer Hong Joo-seong, along with head coach Lee Kang-cheol and pitching coach Jung Hyun-wook, closely watched So-jun So-jun’s bullpen pitching. Coincidentally, the coach, pitcher, catcher, and trainer at the bullpen all belonged to KT.

And that’s not all. Having set up a spring camp at the Kino Sports Complex, KT shares a stadium with the national team and provides an indoor weight training center along with dispatching trainers and bullpen catchers. A KT official I met at the site said, “We are making various efforts to improve the condition of the national team players.” 

The resolution of the hidden wizards is extraordinary. As he is entrusted with the role of supporting the national team, he is carrying out his mission with an extraordinary sense of responsibility. Trainer Hong Joo-seong said, “There are players in the national team that I have managed, but there are many players who have not.” “I think trainers are one of the most important helpers for players. I will do my best so that the players can show off more than 100% of their skills in real battles without injury, and to be of help to coaches Lee Kang-cheol and Kim Ki-tae, who have been serving them.”

Bullpen catcher Kang Jae-wook said, “I received the ball from (So) Hyung-jun from the first practice, and the power of the fastball was good. Certainly, since the players wear the national team uniform, it seems that they have more responsibility and power on the ball. He works a lot with the pitchers and will help them quickly adapt to the official ball.”

On the other hand, as a sponsor of the Korean national soccer team, KT is sparing no support for baseball. In addition, it is the only general company to operate a women’s hockey team for unemployment. At this point, it would be good to call KT the ‘Korea Team’.
