“Put up a 30-minute video before eating”… Lee Kang-cheol’s Yoobi-moo-hwan, the life and death stake in the Australian match

There is no longer a nightmare of being bitten and eliminated by a weakling. Lee Kang-cheol, who is ahead of the WBC (World Baseball Classic), risked life and death before Australia, his first game, to advance to the quarterfinals, his primary goal. 

The Korean baseball team (ranked 4th in the world), led by head coach Lee Kang-cheol, is in Group B along with Japan (1st), Australia (10th), Czech Republic (15th) and China (30th) in the first round of the WBC finals. A ticket to the quarterfinals is given only when the team finishes in second place in the group, and Korea is expected to engage in a fierce battle with Australia for second place in terms of objective strength. And unfortunately, the two teams will be decided as the first opponents of the tournament, and on the 9th of next month, a fateful bout will be held at the Tokyo Dome in Japan.

On the 5th of last month, head coach Lee Kang-cheol left for Australia with the national team coaches and started analyzing the game by watching the Australian professional baseball game for four days. Australia is 10th in the world rankings, six places below Korea, but a large number of players with minor league experience were included in the final roster. Major leaguer Aaron Whitefield and Warwick Saupold, who spent two seasons with the Hanwha Eagles in the KBO League, are also on alert. Korea has a painful memory of being knocked out of the preliminaries due to a blow to the Netherlands and Israel, which were rated one lower in the 2013 and 2017 WBC.

Coach Lee, who met at the national team’s first training session held on the 16th at Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona, USA, said, “The members I saw when I went to Melbourne, Australia were selected for the national team, and four left-handed pitchers were added. I think we were selected because there are a lot of left-handed hitters in our national team.” “Australia has about 10 Triple A players in Whitefield and Saupold. Power isn’t bad. In short-term battles, once you get caught, it goes wrong, so you can never be vigilant.” 

Australian players’ real-time sense is also a target for Korea to be wary of. In Australia, which is in the southern hemisphere, the domestic league is over at the beginning of this month, and the players’ bodies have already been made. On the other hand, Korea, whose league starts in April, is just getting better. Coach Lee said, “Australia will take a break in good condition after the league ends on February 4th and participate in the tournament온라인바카라. That’s good for Australia and bad for us.”

Lee Kang-chul-ho begins to dig into Australia in earnest from the 18th when the power analysis team joins Tucson. In addition, in order to catch the first game against Australia, it was unusual to decide to play a video of Australia’s power analysis for 30 minutes before eating.

Director Lee said, “The most important thing is to get acquainted with power analysis. So, I try to upload 30 minutes of video a day. On the day off, we will take advantage of the time before mealtime on training days,” he said. “We also think of Australia as our first win, but Australia will also think of us that way. We have the same gaze,” he declared all-in against Australia.
