In particular, Choi Ji-man was notified of the WBC national team promotion for the first time. Choi Ji-man said, “I’ve been hungry for 10 years because I’ve never worn the Taegeuk mark.” The goal is to win all four qualifying rounds and go far (the United States, where the semifinals will be held),” he introduced. However, it has not been confirmed that only Choi will join the WBC team. This is because his team, Pittsburgh, needs permission. Choi Ji-man has a strong will, but Pittsburgh has no choice but to be careful about the physical condition of the newly recruited player. Choi Ji-man said, “I am conveying my intention to continue participating in the team, and the team said that I would make a decision after checking my physical condition.”
