Even in the middle of winter, traces of spinning the bat appeared from the first game. The 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) Korean national team won a complete victory in the first real game with the power of the batting line.

On the 17th (Korean time), the national team won 8-2 in an evaluation match against NC held at Tucsonkino Complex in Arizona, USA. On the 16th, the first day of training, coach Lee Kang-cheol of the national team revealed his expectation with a smile, saying, “The beasts have built a good body.” He had a clear advantage in firepower with 14 hits.

On this day, Korea was Lee Jung-hoo (center fielder) – Oh Ji-hwan (shortstop) – Choi Jeong (3rd baseman) – Park Byung-ho (designated hitter) – Kim Hyeon-soo (left fielder) 바카라사이트– Na Seong-beom (right fielder) – Kang Baek-ho (1st baseman) – Lee Ji-young (catcher) – Kim Hye-seong (2 base) to form the lineup. In the middle of the game, Park Hae-min, Park Gun-woo, and Yang Eui-ji were substituted.

Most of the national team hitters in the at-bat showed off a good hitting feel and hit long hits, and the national team took the starting point lightly. This is the result of most of the national team’s fielders participating in batting training even during the off-season in anticipation of participating in the WBC. Normally, batters cannot keep up with the pitcher’s ball in February, but in this game, the national team batters overwhelmed the NC pitchers.

It came out cool from the beginning. At the end of the second inning, the national team faced Song Myeong-ki and lead hitter Kim Hyun-soo got on base with a heavy hit. Na Seong-beom struck out, but Kang Baek-ho fired a two-run gun that went over the right-middle fence. Kang Baek-ho boasted the climax of hitting by exploding an over-the-counter cannon that went well over the right wall in the batting training prior to the game that day.

The team’s next goal was also a home run. In the bottom of the 3rd inning, Choi Jung scored a left-handed solo shot against Choi Seong-young. Then, Park Byeong-ho’s double and Choi Seong-young’s wild throw made a sacrificial fly by Kim Hyun-soo at third base. In the bottom of the 4th inning, Kim Hye-sung and Park Hae-min hit against Lee Yong-jun, and Oh Ji-hwan made a sacrifice fly. Eui-ji Yang and Byung-ho Park scored the 6th run, and Kun-woo Park scored a double at the right time to make the score 7-0. In the bottom of the 7th inning, the last inning, Park Hae-min hit a double at the right time and the game ended.NC, who was being dragged, scored 2 points against Jung Woo-young in the beginning of the 5th inning. The national team pitched 7 pitchers according to the number of pitches until the 7th inning and focused on checking the condition of the pitchers. Even though he caught 3 outs, if the number of pitches was insufficient, he recorded up to 5 outs in one inning. From the first inning, Kim Gwang-hyeon, Ko Young-pyo, Jeong Cheol-won, Won Tae-in, Jung Woo-young, Lee Eui-ri, and Ko Woo-seok took charge of throwing one inning each. KT infielder Ryu Hyun-in and catcher Kang Hyun-woo trained with the national team players and participated in the game to bat and defend.Meanwhile, after taking a break on the 18th, the national team will train on the 19th and engage in the second evaluation match against KIA on the 20th.
