Choo Shin-soo mentioned Japan, a rival with many new faces in international competitions, and emphasized that, on the premise of his personal opinion, young pitchers such as Woo-jin Ahn (Kiwoom Heroes) and Dong-ju Moon (Hanwha Eagles) should have been given a chance for the future rather than immediate results when selecting the WBC representative. did.
Aside from his skills, Ahn Woo-jin, who grew up to be the best pitcher in Korean professional baseball last year, was not selected for the national team due to a history of school violence (school violence) in the past. Moon Dong-ju fell behind his rivals in his skills.
Choo Shin-soo added that even though Ahn Woo-jin reflected on his past mistakes and received disciplinary action, he could not play for the national team.
He also said that seniors should step up for juniors who are treated unreasonably like Ahn Woo-jin, but no one steps forward.
It seems that this remark went against the emotions of the fans.
Ahn Woo-jin made an agreement with the victims and asked for forgiveness from the fans for his past mistakes, saying that he was sincerely reflecting, but he was not called to the national team because he could not conclude the matter clearly.
National team coach Lee Kang-cheol and the WBC technical committee did not select Ahn Woo-jin after much thought to rule out the possibility that the national team would be shaken due to problems outside of baseball.
In particular, in recent years, fans are more sensitive to the history of ‘academic violence’ of famous sports stars.
When Choo Shin-soo, who grew up as a superstar in the American professional baseball Major League (MLB) and played for two years in the KBO league, made remarks that went against the domestic atmosphere, fans poured out their dissatisfaction on YouTube comment windows.
Choo Shin-soo, an MLB star born in Korea, made a great contribution to the development of Korean professional baseball through his sincere remarks and generous donations.
When Choo Shin-soo criticized the poor lockers and shower facilities at Jamsil Baseball Stadium for not considering away team players, the fact that the facilities were drastically improved a year later proves this.
However, it seems that the fans are holding the cane for this remark, which seems to have not carefully considered the characteristics and atmosphere of Korean professional baseball, which is often hot outside of baseball games.
