SSG duo on the plane to Hangzhou…”We will play worthy of the national team”

“We will play worthy of the national team.”

The KBO announced the final roster for the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games baseball team on Monday at the Baseball Hall in Dogok-dong, Seoul. SSG Landers’ Park Sung-seong and Choi Ji-hoon made the roster.

Choi is batting .294 with one home run, 14 RBIs, 28 runs scored and a .700 OPS this season, while Park is batting .247 with three home runs, 19 RBIs, 24 runs scored and a .682 OPS. They have contributed to SSG’s run to the top of the standings.

For Choi, this will be his second time wearing the Korean flag after the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC). “It’s an honor to be able to play in the second international tournament this year,” he said, “and since I’m a member of the national team, I think I should play accordingly.”

For Park, it’s his first senior national team call-up. He said, “I am honored to be selected for this team. I will do my best to compete in the Asian Games with pride and win a gold medal.” “It’s a lot different from the youth national team. I think it’s more weighty to be on the national team as an adult, and I will work harder with that responsibility.”

Three outfielders were selected for the national team. Along with Choi Ji-hoon, Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom Heroes) and Choi Won-jun (Commerce-KIA) were selected. “When I saw the roster in the article, there were three outfielders including me, so I thought I should do well,” Choi said. “For now, I will play well in the remaining games of the season and improve my physical condition and fitness in time for the tournament.

“I played all 144 games last season. I will play a maximum of 10 games at the Asian Games. I’m not worried about my fitness. I’ll take good care of myself and get in shape.”안전놀이터

South Korea won gold at the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games, 2014 Incheon Asian Games, and 2018 Jakarta Palembang Asian Games. In Hangzhou, they will try to win their fourth consecutive gold medal.

“Like every athlete, I’m aiming for gold,” says Choi. I will do my best to bring home gold,” said Choi. Park Sung Sung said, “Of course, the goal is to win. I want to reward the fans who support me with a good result.”

In conclusion, Park Sung Sung said, “Jihoon has been to the national team once before, and I’m going to have to follow him a lot because it’s my first time. I will rely on him.” Choi Ji Hoon said, “I will only trust Sung Han.”
