The World Baseball Classic (WBC) baseball team will play a practice game against the NC Dinos at the Tucson Sports Complex in Arizona, USA on the 17th (Korean time). The first real game of the baseball team convened on the 15th. Baseball team coach Lee Kang-cheol, who finished training on the 16th, said, “Seven pitchers throw one inning each. (It will be a seven-inning game.)
It is a match that draws a lot of attention. In particular, it is a good opportunity for MLB scouts to check Lee Jung-hoo right in front of their noses. As a result of the Daily Sports coverage, it was confirmed that the Los Angeles Dodgers, which belongs to the MLB NL West Division, conveyed their intention to ‘go to the game’ to NC. The Tucson Sports Complex, where the game is held, is not an NC spring camp site, but the Dodgers notified this to an NC official with whom they are acquainted. Lee Jung-hoo is scheduled to knock on the MLB door with a posting system (private competitive bidding) after this season, drawing extraordinary attention from major league clubs.
Quite a few MLB clubs have already visited the Kiwoom spring camp. At least five clubs, including the San Francisco Giants and Boston Red Sox, visited the site to watch Lee Jung-hoo. During the training on the 16th, officials from the Chicago Cubs team also attended. Park Chan-ho, a special advisor to the San Diego Padres, expressed his interest in detail, saying, “The club asks me, ‘How is Lee Jung-hoo?'”.
Considering that the Arizona Diamondbacks cooperated with the selection of the Kiwoom Campsite (Salt River Fields at Talking Stick), in fact, 4 of the 5 MLB NL West teams (excluding the Colorado Rockies) (Dodgers, San Diego, San Francisco, Arizona) directly or indirectly In other words, he is checking Lee Jung-hoo. Arizona has asked for understanding before the start of camp, saying, “I will watch the team training myself.”
Lee Jung-hoo played in 142 games in the regular season last year, recording a batting average of 0.349 (193 hits in 553 at-bats), 23 home runs, and 113 RBIs. He achieved the ‘hitting king’s second consecutive victory’ and won five KBO League batting crowns (batting average, most hits, RBIs, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage) and even won the MVP award for the first time in his debut. He even won the Golden Glove for 5 consecutive years, and stood shoulder to shoulder with the record for the most consecutive Golden Gloves for an outfielder (5 consecutive years, 1983-1987) held by the late former Samsung Lions 2nd team coach Jang Hyo-jo. The WBC, where big league players are all out, can be an opportunity to determine Lee Jung-hoo’s future. And it looks like MLB scouts are getting more and more interested before the WBC even starts.
In an interview with this magazine before joining the WBC team, Lee Jung-hoo said, “I don’t think I have to do well with the WBC because I’m about to advance to the United States. If it’s a month-long tournament, it can be a showcase if you show a good performance on the spot, but even if you meet the United States or Japan, It will be a game. I don’t think it makes sense to judge me by that game.”
