‘The Last Taegeuk Mark’ Choi Jeong, “I must win and become ‘Last Dance'”

SSG Landers infielder Choi Jeong (36) expressed his feelings about joining the national team for the last time.

Choi Jeong-eun first departed for Vero Beach, Florida, USA via Incheon International Airport on the 25th ahead of the team spring camp, which starts on the 1st of next month. Choi Jeong-eun participated in team spring camp training and moved to Arizona from the 14th of next month to train as a member of the national team, before joining the WBC.

Choi Jeong-eun wore the Taegeuk mark from the 2009 WBC, which was the 5th year of his professional debut. Since then, he has kept the national team’s third base until the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games, 2013 WBC, and 2019 Premier 12. However, since baseball was withdrawn from the Olympics, there are no international competitions except for the Asian Games APBC, which focuses on young players, so this is the last national team to board.

Choi Jeong-eun, who we met at Incheon International Airport on the 25th, answered, “I think so. There will be no tournament for the time being” to the question, “If this is the last appearance of the national team.” Choi Jeong-eun, who is with peers such as Yang Eui-ji (Doosan), Kim Gwang-hyun (SSG), Yang Hyeon-jong (KIA), and Park Byeong-ho (kt), said, “I hope to win and become a ‘last dance’ like the Chicago Bulls.”

The Chicago Bulls had an unforgettable last season with the best members including Michael Jordan in the 1997-1998 season and won the championship. Choi Jeong also hoped that the golden generation of the national team would end with a victory.

Choi Jeong-eun said, “I’m a little worried because I’ve never been in good condition in demonstration games. I think the key is to find a sense of the game quickly. Looking at the schedule, there are a lot of practice games.

Then, he expressed his greed, saying, “I’m looking forward to and greedy because I like the national team members. I want to do well so that there is no vacancy at third base. Other countries are also doing their best. I want to go all the way to the United States to meet them.” Korea, which will hold the preliminary round in Tokyo, Japan, will head to Miami, USA if it advances to the semifinals. 먹튀검증

Choi Jeong-eun said, “It’s true that I’m the only professional third baseman, so it’s burdensome. International competitions are short-lived, so it’s right for people who are in good condition to go. I want to help the team,” he said.

Lastly, Choi Jeong-eun said, “It’s nice to continue playing in the same team with (Kim) Gwang-hyeon and join the national team. This time, since (Park) Byeong-ho and (Kim) Hyeon-soo are there, I want to raise the tension and do my best without regret. I want to do my best with no regrets. This time I will do well and create that kind of atmosphere. I want to show that this time it is different. I will win somehow, but even if I lose, I hope that I will not play lazy so that the people will hear that I fought well.”
