“Focus on the bases”
Kang Baek-ho emphasized the importance of the bases to his younger teammates before a scrimmage against Sangmu at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on March 26.
Before the practice game, the players of the Hangzhou Asian Games baseball team gathered in the dugout and suddenly decided on a ceremony.
As Park Se-woong posed with his hands waving next to his face, Kang Baek-ho shouted, “You have to run the bases.
The importance of the base was emphasized to the juniors by Kang Baek-ho, who was at the center of criticism when he stepped off the base while performing the ceremony after hitting a double at the WBC and was called out.
His teammates shouted, “Ban Kang Baek-ho, ban Kang Baek-ho,” and Park Se-woong, who was listening to the story next to him, said, “Your left foot is supposed to step on the base, and when you hit a double, you take the second base and do a serenade.” This made his teammates laugh.
The teammates shared their mistakes with each other in a casual manner, which showed the atmosphere of the national team.
Even afterward, Kang Baek-ho remained serious, telling them to focus on their base running.
In an interview after winning the gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games, Kang Baek-ho said that he had suffered from panic disorder for the past four months, but he was so happy to win the title.스포츠토토
