“I really resented it. Have you seen ‘The Strongest Baseball’?”
Choi Jeong-eun of SSG Landers is the only professional third baseman among infielders selected as the national representative for the World Baseball Classic (WBC) to be held in March. Although Choi Jeong is a veteran who has experienced international competitions not once or twice, this is why this competition feels particularly burdensome.

This time, (Kim) Ha-seong or (Oh) Ji-hwan. They say you can turn it around, but I’m the only professional third baseman. I want to do well.”
