Sharp reaction to Choo Shin-soo who mentioned An Woo-jin as “Korea that is not easy to forgive”

Choo Shin-soo (41, SSG) vomited his heart without hesitation about An Woo-jin (24, Kiwoom)’s failure to select the national team for the World Baseball Classic (WBC).

On the 21st (Korean time), Choo Shin-soo appeared on ‘DKNET’, a Korean radio station in Dallas, Texas, USA and said, “When I participate in international competitions such as the WBC from a young age, the feelings and mind itself change. It is the job of Korean baseball to create opportunities for players like Ahn Woo-jin to compete in international competitions.”

If grades were the only criterion, Ahn Woo-jin is the resource that should be selected first.

Ahn Woo-jin received a brilliant report card in the 2022 season of 15 wins and 8 losses with an average ERA of 2.11. With 224 strikeouts, he ranked second on the all-time list for most strikeouts in a season, and even held the title for earned run average.메이저사이트 An Woo-jin, who came second in the most wins category, even had a Golden Glove in the pitcher category.

However, he was still not free from the ‘academic violence’ controversy. Ahn Woo-jin was disciplined by the School Violence Countermeasures Autonomous Committee for school violence during Whimoon High School. He was also suspended for three years by the Korea Sports Association and the Korea Baseball Softball Association. The WBC, which the KBO had the right to select, was an opportunity for Ahn Woo-jin to wear the Taegeuk mark, but even this was canceled.

At the time, when asked about the background of Ahn Woo-jin’s exclusion, Cho Beom-hyun, chairman of the KBO Technical Committee, said, “We finally selected 30 entries in consideration of various factors such as the symbolic meaning of the national team representing the country, responsibility, and pride, along with the player’s skills.” Although he avoided an immediate answer, it is enough to interpret it as meaning that he cannot select players involved in school violence issues.
