Kang Baek-ho will join the national team’s spring camp held in Arizona, USA after building up his body at his team KT during this spring camp. Kang Baek-ho said, “It seems very new. I have never joined the national team through a camp. I think it will be amazing.” I think I can see and learn how other team players are doing at camp. I think I can mature a little while learning those things.”
Major league players will also participate in this WBC. Ha-seong Kim (San Diego Padres), Ji-man Choi (Pittsburgh Pirates), and Tommy Edman (St. Louis Cardinals) will start. Kang Baek-ho said, “In the national team, players who have been active in other countries come. I have high expectations. I think you should feel a sense of responsibility.” I will work hard to show a good image with a sense of responsibility.”
Kang Baek-ho met Japan three times on the international stage. However, the results were all lost. Kang Baek-ho said, “I lost all three times. I have to avenge myself. But in order to do that, I think I need to prepare better than thinking ‘I will avenge that team and that country’.” I think it happened because it was lacking. This time, we have a lot of better players, so we will prepare harder. Since we gather from the camp, we hope to have good results.”
In this national team, there are three first baseman resources: Kang Baek-ho, Park Byung-ho, and Choi Ji-man. However, it is still unclear whether Choi Ji-man will join. If Choi Ji-man cannot join, Kang Baek-ho may feel more pressure. However, Kang Baek-ho said that everyone has a burden.
He said, “All players play with a sense of pressure. Because they are wearing the Taegeuk mark, they have all that pressure. All players will deal with it the same no matter what situation they are in.” I will prepare well,” he said.
He added, “No matter what sport or any player, all players prepare perfectly for the process. In the end, the results are evaluated. I hope you will believe in the process without doubt,” adding, “And I will work harder to show good results.”
The national team coach this time is Lee Kang-cheol, who leads KT. When asked if he had talked about anything, Kang Baek-ho said, “No. I’m thinking maybe we’ll talk in the US.” I think you’ll agree and say, ‘It was okay.’
