Choo Shin-soo (SSG Landers) revealed his thoughts on the generational change of the baseball team.
On the 21st, Choo Shin-soo appeared on ‘DKNET’, a Korean radio station in the Dallas area, and expressed his regret about entering the WBC national baseball team. He said, “In the case of Japan, there are many new faces when it comes to international competitions. However, in Korea (for example) Kim Hyun-soo is a good player and has good grades to represent Korea, but if it were me, I would have seen the future. Looking ahead, it is true that many players are not actually going, and there should have been more players who had to be selected.”
Choo Shin-soo said, “How long will Kim Gwang-hyun and Yang Hyeon-jong come out? In Japan, the article ‘Kwang-hyun Kim is there again’ comes out like that. It’s not that these players lack skills. (After experiencing the KBO League) Young players are actually talented. “Why can’t such players be (selected)? If they go to an international tournament where many teams participate, such as the WBC, from a young age, the feelings and mindset of these players will change tremendously.” He expressed regret about one part. “For example, Moon Dong-ju is said to be lacking in control right now, but from my point of view, there is no pitcher who can throw as much as he does now. The same goes for An Woo-jin. It’s something to do. I regret that a lot.”
Regarding the An Woo-jin controversy, Choo Shin-soo said, “It was obviously wrong, and it’s very unfortunate to see it as a third person. He continued, “I also play baseball in Korea, but there are so many things I don’t understand. It seems that it is not easy to forgive in Korea. I can’t go out,” he said cautiously.
Choo Shin-soo also left a bitter voice to senior baseball players. He said, “What I want to say to many baseball seniors is that they were born early and played baseball early, so I think that if there are juniors who are in an unreasonable situation, they should step out. If juniors, not seniors and not adults, are going the wrong way and exercising in the wrong place, they should raise their voice and try to be helpful, but I just watch. 먹튀검증
