Korean baseball peaked at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He defeated Japan in the preliminaries and semifinals and won the gold medal메이저놀이터.
After that, Korean baseball began to regress. It was because of pride.
On the other hand, Japan, whose pride was hurt, gnashed its teeth.
Baseball in Japan started to progress.
In fact, the level of the KBO league has been evaluated as about 1.5 divisions of the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) from before. Here, KBO is regressing and NPB is progressing, so it is not an exaggeration to say that the gap is widening.
It’s the same when you look at foreign players. Players who flew wild in the KBO died in the NPB. On the other hand, Sun, who would die in the NPB, is flying high in the KBO.
The situation in MLB is no different.
Major leaguers, including Koreans, performed sluggishly in the WBC match against Australia and Japan. However, major leaguers of Japanese descent and Japanese descent were very active. The difference in major league level between Korea and Japan also had to be reduced.
Don’t say it’s unreasonable to evaluate by your performance in the short game. A player who is good at short-term matches is also good at long-term matches. In this respect, Ha-sung Kim and Tommy Edman have nothing to say even if they have ten mouths. Needless to say, there is a difference in level between KBO players and NPB players.
Korean baseball must start over. We need to wake up from the illusion that we are a world baseball team.
