“Focus on the base.”
Kang Baek-ho emphasized the importance of the base to his juniors ahead of the practice match against Sangmu held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 26th of last month.
Ahead of the practice game, the Hangzhou Asian Games baseball team players gathered in the dugout and suddenly decided on a ceremony.
When Park Se-woong struck a ceremony pose, waving his hand next to his face, Kang Baek-ho shouted, “You have to step on the base.”
Kang Baek-ho, who was at the center of criticism when he was out while celebrating after hitting a double at the WBC when his foot fell off the base, further emphasized the importance of the base to his juniors.스포츠토토
Colleagues said, “(Ceremony) Kang Baek-ho is prohibited, Kang Baek-ho is prohibited,” and Park Se-woong, who was listening to the story next to him, also said, “Of course, your left foot steps on the base. When you hit a double, you pull out the second base and celebrate,” making his teammates burst into laughter.
I was able to get a glimpse of the national team atmosphere as they shared stories of each other’s mistakes without hesitation.
Afterwards, Kang Baek-ho showed a serious attitude throughout the day, telling him to focus on base running.
Meanwhile, in an interview after winning the gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games, Kang Baek-ho shed tears, saying that although he had suffered from severe panic disorder for the past four months, he was so happy to have achieved such a good result as winning.
