Even in the shock elimination… “Park Se-woong-Yang Eui-ji, by far the 1st round all-star”

 Even though I tasted the pain of being eliminated in the first round at the World Baseball Classic (WBC), will there be a player selected as the best of the tournament in the Korean baseball team?

Data Stadium, a Japanese sports data company, announced through Yahoo Sports on the 16th, “We selected the best 9 players by selecting players who performed impressively in Groups A and B in the first round of the WBC.”

Korea was placed in Group B for this tournament. Korea, who suffered a shock come-from-behind defeat 7-8 in their first game against Australia (9th), lost 4-13 in the next game against Japan, giving up 9 4 pitches.메이저사이트

Korea, which has already had difficulty advancing to the quarterfinals, won its first victory in the tournament by winning 7-3 against the Czech Republic (12th). Then, in the game against China (13th), they made a big win with a 22-2, 5th inning called game, but were eliminated after staying in 3rd place in the group.

Korea, which showed poor performance enough to cause many baseball players to sigh. However, the performances of some players have taken the world by surprise.

The media also picked two players from Korea. They were pitcher Park Se-woong (28, Lotte Giants) and catcher Yang Eui-ji (36, Doosan Bears).

Park Se-woong made a name for himself in the pitching category along with Japan’s Yamamoto Yoshinobu (25, Orix) and Cuba’s Miguel Romero (29). Park Se-woong recorded 1⅓ innings perfect in the match against Japan on the 10th, blocking the team’s cold game loss. Then, two days later, he appeared as a starting pitcher against the Czech Republic and made a good pitch with 1 hit, 8 strikeouts and no runs in 4⅔ innings.

Regarding Park Se-woong, who recorded 9 strikeouts and no runs in 6 innings of the tournament, the media evaluated him as “effectively using a sharply falling slider and a curve that changes greatly with the bell.”

Yang Eui-ji is also one of the players who fought hard in this tournament. In the game against Australia, he showed hope by recording a come-from-behind three-run at the end of the 5th inning. Then, in the game against Japan, Darvish Yu (37, San Diego), a pitcher with 16 wins in the big leagues last year, hit a two-run home run in the third inning. Eui-ji Yang showed excellent batting performance with 4 hits in 10 at-bats (0.400 batting average), 2 homers, 5 RBIs, and an OPS of 1.455 during the three group stage games.

The media that introduced Yang Eui-ji’s performance said, “Both home runs were aimed at loss-making breaking balls, but the veteran’s aspect of not missing an opportunity shone.” He continued, “Out of 24 swings, he missed only 2, and he showed off excellent bat control.”

On the other hand, Japan, the favorite for the championship, had as many as five players included in the best list. In particular, regarding Shohei Ohtani (29, Los Angeles Angels), he explained, “In 4 games, the rate of pitches outside the strike zone was 63%, so I received a huge check, but I patiently waited for the missed pitch and hit a good ball.”
