“I didn’t think so…”

The KBO announced the final roster for the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games baseball team on 9 September at the Baseball Hall in Dogok-dong, Seoul.

The final 24-man roster is comprised of one to three players per club, including players aged 25 or younger or in their fourth year of service, and three wildcards (up to one per club) with no restrictions on age or years of service.

The KIA Tigers produced three players. Left-handed starter Lee Yi-ri, left-handed reliever Choi Ji-min and outfielder Choi Won-jun were selected to the Asian Games squad.

Choi appeared in 27 games for the Sangmu Baseball Club this season, batting .214 with one home run, nine RBIs, 20 runs scored and a .685 OPS. He plans to join the team immediately after his discharge on 12 December.토토사이트

KIA manager Kim Jong-kook said, “(Choi Won-jun) has played less this season because of injuries. I didn’t expect that. I wouldn’t have either,” he said, adding, “I think coach Ryu Jung-il picked him because of his previous good performances.”

“(Lee) Eui-ri was expected to make the national team, and (Choi) Jimin is playing well for the first time this year. I gave him a 50 per cent chance. He’s performing well and I think they saw a good pitch.”

“Won-jun Choi is a commercial player. He is not limited to the military exemption and has formed an outfield.” “He can play both infield and outfield. He received high scores in air, water, and state.”

Lee Yi-ri and Choi Ji-min are missing. The team also has to worry about mound operations. “I think it’s better because we’re not missing two bullpen pitchers or two starters,” said Kim Jong-guk, “I hope we can do well and win gold. We’ll have to start thinking about the gap in August. It’s too far away to think about that. We need to think about the recent situation.”

Meanwhile, against the Doosan Bears, the KIA line-up was Ryu Ji-hyuk (third base), Ko Jong-wook (left field), Socrates Brito (centre field), Choi Hyung-woo (designated hitter), Kim Sun-bin (second base), Lee Woo-sung (right field), Byun Woo-hyuk (first base), Shin Beom-soo (catcher) and Park Chan-ho (shortstop). The starting pitcher was Adonis Medina.
