Lee Jeong-hoo (25, Kiwoom, photo) will challenge the American professional baseball major league (MLB) after this season. However, Lee Jung-hoo, who has not even stepped on the MLB field yet, was selected as one of the most noteworthy outfielders ahead of the World Baseball Classic (WBC) to be held in March.
On the 12th, Lee Jung-hoo was named along with Mike Trout (LA Angels) and Mookie Betts (LA Dodgers) in the outfielder category of the ‘All WBC Team’, which was formed by MLB.com’s ‘2023 WBC Best Players by Position’. Lee Jung-hoo is the only non-major league player on the ‘All WBC Team’.
MLB.com said, “Lee Jung-hoo may not be the best outfielder in the WBC, but he is the most interesting player to watch in this tournament.” . The media also added that Lee Jeong-hoo was selected as the MVP of the Korean professional baseball regular league last year with a batting average of 0.349 and 23 homers, and that his team, Kiwoom, allowed him to go abroad after this season. 슬롯사이트
Trout and Betts, who were named together as ‘All-WBC Team’ outfielders, are superstars who have been named MLB regular season MVPs. The names of the players who were pushed by Lee Jung-hoo are also flashy. MLB All-Star players such as Juan Soto (San Diego), Julio Rodriguez (Seattle), and Ronald Acuna Jr. (Atlanta) were simply mentioned in one line in the article.
As an Asian player, Ohtani Shohei (Angels), who doubles as a pitcher, was selected in the two-way (double swords) category. In San Diego, Ha-seong Kim’s team, third baseman Manny Machado (Dominican Republic) and shortstop Sander Bohartz (Netherlands) were named.
