Japanese pitching staff to conquer Hangzhou AG… Taiwan only has 17 professional players
The Japanese and Taiwanese national teams, which will compete with Korea for the gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games, took off their veil.
Japan’s national team consisted of players who all played in unemployment baseball. 24 entries were filled with 9 pitchers, 3 catchers, 6 infielders and 6 outfielders.
Among the pitchers, Junichi Tazawa, a relief pitcher who played for the Boston Red Sox, Miami Marlins, and Los Angeles Angels of Major League Baseball, and is now a member of Eneos, a Japanese commercial baseball team, stands out.
An official of the Korean baseball team, who explored the power in Japan in July, commented, “There are many pitchers who throw fast balls at 150 km per hour.”
As for Korea, which lacks offense, it seems likely that Japanese pitchers will either cry or laugh depending on their quick response to the ball.
Japan has united representatives of all age groups dispatched to international competitions under the brand ‘Samurai Japan’, including representatives from this Asian Games.
Taiwan only selected 17 professional players. The Taiwanese media recently introduced that the number of professional players is the highest among the three Asian Games.
The Taiwanese media added significance that the national team, which is trying to win the Asian Games for the first time in 17 years since the 2006 Doha Games, selected 17 professional players as representatives.
The team consisted of 10 players from their home country’s professional league, 7 minor leaguers, and 7 unemployed players from their home country.
According to the KBO League Secretariat, which operates and supports the Korean baseball team, in the 2019 U-18 World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) Baseball World Cup held in Gijang, Busan, they defeated the United States 2-1 and won the championship. It is said that seven members of the ‘golden generation’ of baseball in Taiwan were selected to represent the Hangzhou Asian Games.먹튀검증
They are known to be mainly minor leaguers.
The Taiwanese press was wary of Korea by reporting heavily on the recent situation of Korean national team coach Ryu Joong-il and national team coach Ryu Ji-hyun, who visited Taichung last week to analyze the strength of Taiwanese players.
Korea and Taiwan are organized in Group B of the Hangzhou Asian Games, and in order to win, they must defeat their opponents in the group stage. Group A’s Japan will face Korea and Taiwan in the Super Round.
Korea made up a team with 23 KBO league players and 1 amateur, but due to injuries, a new replacement list will be announced in mid-September.
