Even in a bright atmosphere, he was quite sincere.
The Korean women’s baseball team, led by head coach Yang Sang-moon, trained early on the morning of the 8th (Korean time) ahead of the first game of the ‘2024 Women’s Baseball World Cup (WBSC)’ preliminary round.
Prior to the full-scale training, coach Yang summoned the players and strengthened their determination to participate in the tournament. Coach Yang said, “Let’s wear the Taegeuk mark and show a proud appearance,” and the players also made up their minds.
After warming up with stretching, the national team was divided into fielders and pitchers and began training to adapt to the local ground. The field team practiced defense with field coach Jung Geun-woo and battery coach Heo Il-sang, receiving a fungo. The players checked strategies such as run and bunt, and finished the schedule with batting training.
After checking the condition of the mound, the pitching team improved their condition through pitching practice with pitching coach Lee Dong-hyun and Yu Won-sang at the bullpen pitching rink. The two pitching coaches praised the players, saying, “Let’s just throw it like this during the game” as the players scattered the ball all over the corner.메이저사이트
The national team, which arrived the previous evening and completed a short training session, showed good condition in the first official training session only 10 hours later. The outfield team handled fly and fast balls without missing anything, and the infield team drew applause from the coaches with their light footwork and unsparing defense.
The batting wasn’t bad either. The players created fast balls that pierced the infield toward the end of training and hit balls that fell between the outfield and the infield. The pitching team also threw various pitches freely, matching battery breathing with the catchers.
Catcher and captain Choi Min-hee said, “Today, ahead of tomorrow morning’s game, each player is going to have individual training or take a break to adjust their condition. I will play with no regrets.”
Manager Yang Sang-moon said, “We won two cold games against Hong Kong at the ‘2023 Women’s Baseball Asian Cup (BFA)’ held in Hong Kong at the end of May, but we will not be vigilant and will do our best.” We are going to do it and check it,” he said.
Meanwhile, the first match of the 2024 Women’s Baseball World Cup qualifiers between Korea and Hong Kong will be held at Baseball Central Stadium located in Thunder Bay, Canada at 12:30 am (Korean time) on the 9th.
