Ahead of the roster announcement, the team manager apologized.

Doosan’s Chung Chul-won, who was fined for his role in the WBC drinking scandal, was left off the final roster.

The average age is about 23 years old, four years younger than the last tournament, and for the first time, there was an emphasis on generational change.

Yongmago pitcher Jang Hyun-seok, who made the seniors nervous on “Strongest Baseball,” also made the list.

It’s the first time an 18-year-old high school student will compete in the Asian Games wearing the Korean flag.

The catcher spot, which was expected to be filled by a wild card, also went to high school rookie Kim Dong-hun.

Injury-rehabbing pitcher Koo Chang-moe and Park Se-woong joined the team as wild cards, while outfielder Choi Won-joon, who is on the verge of a commercial career, also caught the eye with his selection.

The team explained that the selection prioritized team strength, as the team five years ago was mired in controversy over military service benefits after winning gold.
