The soccer team, which had the worst performance in the 2014 Brazil World Cup, returned home through Incheon International Airport and held a disbanding ceremony in a row at the arrival hall.
Although the results did not live up to the expectations of the people, the players bowed their heads to the soccer fans who supported the national team and promised the next tournament.
Although it became a bitter disbanding ceremony because of the pumpkin taffy candy thrown by some ignorant football fans at that moment, there is no ‘do or don’t’ according to the performance of the soccer team’s returning home. This is because it is a courtesy to the people, which must be done as a player wearing the Taegeuk mark.메이저사이트
However, at some point in the baseball team, depending on the performance, there is a ‘doing or not doing’.
The baseball team, which returned to Korea through Incheon International Airport on the afternoon of the 14th, scattered as soon as they left the arrival hall. The baseball team, which returned home with a no medal at the Tokyo Olympics held in 2021, did the same. It was pitiful to see the backs of the players disappearing without any official greetings.
The baseball team wasn’t always like this. When he won the gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and runner-up at the 2009 WBC, a grand welcome ceremony was held at the airport.
The appearance of the baseball team, which holds a grand welcome ceremony if done well and scatters the players without any return greetings, was very different from the soccer team, which is developing day by day.
Eliminated in the first round of the WBC (World Baseball Classic) three times in a row. The Korean baseball team, which showed the shabby current state of Korean baseball, did not even finish properly.
The baseball team recorded 2 wins and 2 losses in the first round group stage of the WBC held in Japan. 3rd in Group B, behind Japan with 4 wins and Australia with 3 wins and 1 loss. Korea failed to secure a ticket to advance to the quarterfinal tournament, which is given to second place in the group, and suffered the humiliation of being eliminated in the first round three times in a row following 2013 and 2017.
The successive failures of the baseball team, which clearly showed the current state of Korean baseball. I’m worried. Fans who leave once do not come back easily. It is regrettable that the national team’s sluggish performance has once again poured cold water on the popularity of baseball, which already has warning lights on.
The professional baseball demonstration game has begun. Players who return the Taegeuk mark will immediately return to their respective teams. Will they be able to recapture their departed fans?
