South Korea’s women’s national baseball team outfielder Shin Nuri

Announced her retirement from the national team early, and pitcher Kim Bo-mi (34) is seriously considering returning the Taegeuk mark.

Shinnuri has been wearing the Taegeuk mark since 2017 and Kim Bo-mi has been wearing the Taegeuk mark since 2015. He quietly represented the country for seven and nine years, respectively. It was a quiet and unassigned commitment.

Looking back on the past nine years, Kim Bo-mi said, “I’ve worked hard, and you’ve worked hard, too. Thank you for hanging in there with me. If I had tried alone, I wouldn’t have come this far. We’ve held out together. Thanks to you, I didn’t feel lonely. It was an honor to be able to spend my youth with these people,” he said, bowing to all his teammates who have been with the national team.

Shinnuri also said, “I think I am now because (Kim) Bo-mi, (Lee) Bit-na, and (Kim) Harry have been together for the past seven years. Thanks to these friends who have been with the national team, I was able to work harder and hold out. This is because I wanted to be selected for the national team with these friends next year. “Thank you so much.”

Maybe the last international competition. Pitcher Kim Bo-mi started against Canada on the 14th (Korea Standard Time), the last game of the preliminary round of the “2024 Women’s Baseball World Cup” hosted by the World Baseball Softball Association (WBSC) in Thunder Bay, Canada.

Before taking the mound, Kim Bo-mi said, “I will throw it without regret.” I could feel his determination on the face of the way of the mound. With three earned runs in 2.1 innings, he pitched hard with three strikeouts against the Canadian slugger.

On this day, Baekmi bowed to Yang Sang-moon, head coach of the national team, as Kim Bo-mi took off her hat. When coach Yang took the mound with the ball, Kim Bo-mi first applauded the internal and external players and thanked them, then took off her hat and greeted coach Yang politely to express her gratitude. It was a moment when the eyes of the beholder were red.

The same goes for Shinnuri. He burned his fighting spirit at his last international competition. In the first game against Hong Kong with two outs and a full base, he hit a “sweep” three-run right-handed triple, and in the match against Australia, he succeeded in sliding to second and third base. Shinnuri’s performance in this tournament was 0.273 batting average (3 hits in 11 at-bats) with three RBIs. OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) ranked first in the national team with 0.884.

Shinnuri said, “The team’s performance in this tournament is not good (losing all five games), so I’m actually very heavy.” It’s too bad that the team’s performance is not as good as I thought. I still feel like I’m staying in the match against Hong Kong. “I’m just very disappointed,” he confessed.

Looking back on his national team career, Shinnuri cited 2018 as the most memorable year when he stood tall as a main outfielder. “In 2017, he was a candidate, so he only played two at-bats, but he played as a full-time starting pitcher at the ‘Women’s Baseball World Cup’ held in Florida, the U.S. At that time, I felt a sense of pleasure,” he said.

He prepared for the tournament as the best player among the 20 women’s baseball teams this year. The younger brothers all said, “Nuri plays a lot of jokes and approaches me first. “It always makes the atmosphere good,” he said. Shinnuri also has no distinction with the youngest players who are 20 years younger than her. With Shinnuri, the players were able to unite and participate in the world championships.

If I put down the Taegeuk mark, wouldn’t the weekend feel empty. Shinnuri and Kim Bo-mi laughed, saying, “I have to go to training for my team on weekends,” but added, “I’ve always prepared to start training from the national team selection match since the end of February, but now I’m not going to do it, so I think I’ll feel a lot empty then.”

Many people stare at those who have played the women’s national baseball team for a long time. It is because neither honor nor reward is great. Nevertheless, Shinnuri said, “It doesn’t matter. I’ve done it so far because I like me. What can’t you do if you like it. It’s like, “What can’t I do to love someone?” He calmly said the reason.

Kim Bo-mi also said, “I also like baseball.” However, the longer I played for the national team, the wider my thoughts became. I wanted to help women’s baseball in any way. So I wanted to actively respond to interviews and share my experience with young players,” he said. Kim Bo-mi, a middle school physical education teacher, added, “I can’t be so proud if one of my students sees my article and says, ‘Teacher, I started baseball’ one day.”

For a long time, I didn’t know that someone played for the country with the Taegeuk mark. It must have been a quiet and lonely fight. Nevertheless, we have been relying on each other, comforting each other, and running so far. I’ve lost a lot of friends, but I’ve got a lot of reliable ‘baseball’ friends.

The two people, who were the center of the national team, put down their affectionate Taegeuk mark. But you don’t have to worry. Talented and passionate young juniors will now be the center of the national team. 토토사이트 순위
