“All I can say is that I’m sorry.”

There was not even the slightest courtesy. The World Baseball Classic (WBC) Korean baseball team received a shocking report card of being eliminated in the first round despite selecting the best players. It is natural to sincerely apologize and reflect on the people who raised their voices of support even after the elimination was confirmed. However, the final appearance of the Taegeuk Warriors was without the slightest courtesy or respect. Only the command tower remained alone, bowing its head repeatedly.스포츠토토

The WBC team, led by coach Lee Kang-cheol, left Narita International Airport in Japan on the afternoon of the 14th and returned to Incheon International Airport Terminal 2 around 5:30. The final result of the Korean national team, which showed the worst performance this year, was 2 wins, 2 losses, 3rd place in Group B, and was eliminated in the 1st round. Here, the WBC made a shocking result by drinking the high pain of being eliminated in the first round three times in a row.

Was it like that? The WBC Korean national team players who showed up at the arrival hall were busy leaving the airport quickly with their heads bowed instead of saying hello. Reporters and dozens of fans gathered, but they were in a hurry to get out of the airport. Only director Lee Kang-chul came out of the arrival hall and responded to the interview with the reporters. Director Lee said, “I’m sorry. All I can say is that I’m sorry.” He bowed his head repeatedly.

When asked how he organized the tournament before returning home, he said, “I couldn’t think of anything. The players prepared really well and practiced a lot. I hope you will give me all the blame because I did really well. This result came about because I was lacking, so please refrain from criticizing the players and do everything for me.”

He said, “All the players did well, but it’s unfortunate that they couldn’t show their skills. Even if young players such as So-Jun Sohn and Eui-Ri Lee threw their own balls, we could have produced good results. I’m sorry, but those players will also be very sorry.” If you wait a little longer, the young players will grow well and produce good results (in other international competitions),” he expressed his faith in the players.
