Kang Baek-ho’s apology, “I’m sorry. I’ll become a player with good humanity” 

“I’m sorry. I will try to become a player with good character.”

Kang Baek-ho (KT) could not laugh despite his good performances and the team’s victory. He went to the interview with a depressed expression on his hat and promised the next one.

The Korean baseball team, led by coach Lee Kang-cheol, won the 22-2, 5th cold game victory in the final 4th game of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) Group B group stage against the Chinese baseball team held at Tokyo Dome, Japan on the afternoon of the 13th.안전놀이터

In the Czech Republic-Australia match held earlier in the day, if the Czech Republic won after scoring four or more runs, Korea could advance to the second round (quarterfinals) according to the run rate. However, Australia’s 8-3 win over the Czech Republic put an end to Korea’s torture of hope. Korea suffered disgrace by being eliminated in the first round three times in a row, from the 2013 tournament held in Taichung, Taiwan, to the 2017 tournament held at Gocheok Dome in Seoul, and this tournament held at Tokyo Dome.

Still, Kang Baek-ho played a big role in the attack throughout this tournament. In the match against China that day, he went 5-for-3 with 1 RBI and 2 runs scored. During the 4 games in this tournament, he recorded a batting average of 50% (7 hits in 14 bats), 2 doubles, 2 RBIs, and 3 runs, respectively.

Kang Baek-ho met with reporters at Mixt Zone after the Chinese match and said, “I am very sorry to the fans who have been looking forward to it. I am sorry that I did not perform as well as expected.”

He continued, “I prepared hard because the last tournament was not good.

Kang Baek-ho made a big mistake in the game against Australia on the 9th. In the bottom of the 7th inning, Korea trailed 4-5. He was tagged out when his foot fell off second base while celebrating after hitting a double. At that time, it was a jurusa that poured cold water on the trend of pursuit in Korea.

Regarding this, Kang Baek-ho said, “It’s unfortunate in that situation, and I tried to admit it too. It was a play that I shouldn’t have shown. I’m fine, but I’m so sorry for disappointing the fans who have been looking forward to it. I’m sorry I couldn’t show you a good image again,” he bowed his head repeatedly.

He said, “I prepared really hard for this competition, but I have a lot of regrets. As much as I prepared well, I will try to prepare well for the season. Some people may think badly of me, but there are many people who like me and support me. To everyone I can’t tell people to like me, but I will try my best to become a good player, a good player, and a good human being. I hope you will support and watch me in the future.”
