The LG Twins proved a strong reason for being considered favorites for the championship again this year.
On the 4th, KBO announced the final list of 30 WBC players at the KBO Baseball Center in Dogok-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul.
Among them, LG has produced 6 national team players, the most among 10 clubs, including Oh Ji-hwan, Kim Hyun-soo, Park Hae-min (ideal hitter), Ko Woo-seok, Jung Woo-yeong, and Kim Yun-sik (ideal pitcher).
Kim Hyun-soo is a veteran player who is selected for the national team in every international competition. Last season, he had a batting average of 0.286 (150 hits in 524 at-bats), 23 homers, 106 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.848 in 141 games last season.
Park Hae-min and Oh Ji-hwan are players who have shown their true value since the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. During the Olympics, the two players showed a brilliant appearance by making a big success in defense and batting.
Park Hae-min played in 144 games last season with a batting average of 0.289 (165 hits in 570 at-bats), 3 home runs, 97 points and 24 steals. did.스포츠토토
In addition, there is a high probability that all three pitching staff will be used as the winning team for the national team.
Go Woo-seok took the top spot in saves last season with 4 wins, 2 losses and 42 saves with an ERA of 1.48 in 61 matches, and Jung Woo-young took first place in holds with an average ERA of 2.64 in 67 matches with 2 wins and 3 losses.
Kim Yun-sik is a player who goes back and forth between the starter and the bullpen, but he is making good pitches in every game that matches the word young gun ace. He appeared in 23 games last season and showed a stable appearance with 8 wins, 5 losses and an average ERA of 3.31.
The fact that many players have been produced in the national team means that the team is strong. Previously, when the Doosan Bears advanced to the Korean Series for the fifth consecutive year, numerous players in each tournament were included in the national team roster.
Expectations are already high that LG’s national team players will be able to contribute to the team’s victory this season following their WBC performance.
