On the 29th, Ahn Woo-jin left for Arizona Spring Camp in the United States via Incheon International Airport. Last year, Woojin Ahn, who recorded an average ERA of 2.11 with 223 strikeouts in 30 games, 15 wins, 8 losses, 196 innings, and ranked first in the league in strikeouts and ERA, is moving towards the goal of becoming a title holder for two consecutive years.
An Woo-jin packed his things lightly, but recently surrounded An Woo-jin and rather shook him outside. It is because Choo Shin-soo, an SSG Landers outfielder, appeared on a Dallas Korean radio broadcast on the 21st and mentioned Ahn Woo-jin.
Choo Shin-soo said, “Ahn Woo-jin obviously did the wrong thing, and it’s really unfortunate to see and hear as a third person. I don’t think it’s easy. When I was young, I repented of my mistakes, I was punished, and I was suspended from participation. But I can’t go to international competitions.”
Ahn Woo-jin was disciplined for school violence in Whimoon High School in 2017. After the end of last season, the juniors issued a statement, and An Woo-jin also expressed his position, saying, “I want to reveal the truth,” but the KBO Technical Committee was held back by the lack of a clear conclusion. Ahn Woo-jin was also on the cutting board once again with 안전놀이터 Choo Shin-soo’s comment in a frustrating situation.
An Woo-jin, who we met at the airport on the 29th, apologized for the issues that arose during the WBC selection process, saying, “I’m sorry for creating an uncomfortable situation because of me.” Ahn Woo-jin added, “I’m sorry to many people, including Choo Shin-soo.”
Regarding the spring camp, Ahn Woo-jin said, “It’s nice to be able to do it in a warm place. I hope I can do well without injury. I want to achieve better results than last year is the same goal every season. The most important thing is to throw the ball you want and where you want it. I will make sure that I am fully prepared.”
Regarding Lee Jung-hoo, who announced his last major league challenge this season, Ahn Woo-jin said, “As a team member, he is a senior I am grateful for. I want to show good grades when I am there,” he said.
