The 2023 WBC (World Baseball Classic) national team, not only players run. The KBO support staff who support the players are also having a busy day.
On the 15th (hereinafter Korean time), before the team was convened in Tucson, Arizona, USA, KBO officials were dispatched to the local area in advance and conducted preliminary preparation work. The Kino Sports Complex, which will be used as a training ground, and the conditions for the lodging were checked, and they were ready to provide all-out support.
The meals for the players were prepared with the help of a local Korean company. It was not an easy situation due to the closure of the business due to Corona 19 and a shortage of manpower, but after asking around, they succeeded in finding a company that would take care of the meals for the athletes. In the accommodation selection process, the ‘condition to cook at a restaurant’ was included. This is to help athletes who train in a distant foreign land for a long time receive proper nutrition and create optimal conditions. This made it possible to prepare a variety of meals every day.
IT support continued. Excluding Kim Ha-seong (San Diego Padres) and Tommy Hyeon-soo Edman (St. Louis Cardinals), who joined their team late to participate in the spring camp, all 28 players, manager Lee Kang-cheol, and coaches were given a tablet PC containing an analysis of the opponent’s power. In response to the national team’s request to familiarize themselves with the video data of the opposing country, a large beam projector was installed at the team’s dining area and a TV was installed in the locker room of the Kino Sports Complex. 먹튀검증
Details were also added. In line with the MLB official ball rules for applying mud to baseballs, mud cans were airlifted from the field and hand-made. MLB rosin bags to be used in the WBC were also purchased in bulk so that pitchers pitching in practice games could learn their senses in advance.
Even on team rest days, the support staff has no time to rest. In order to help players who want individual training, they hire a vehicle and training location, or they reside at the support headquarters prepared in the accommodation to prepare for unexpected situations that may occur.
A KBO official said, “It is our job to support the optimal training conditions.” He expressed his desire to come.”
