‘Captain America’ Mike Trout expressed his feelings after completing the WBC (World Baseball Classic).
Trout said on his social media account on the 23rd (Korean time), “It’s hard to explain in words what the past few weeks have meant to me.” .The support you sent me was my driving force and made the WBC a moment I will always treasure. I am really grateful to all of the fans. It was an honor to be your captain,” he said. 메이저사이트
Trout, a major leaguer with the Los Angeles Angels and America’s most popular star, captained the WBC USA team. Trout, who had not participated in the WBC in 2017, readily accepted his captaincy for the first tournament in six years. Trout, who played an active role wearing a national team uniform with “USA” written on it, contributed a lot in and out of the game to help the US team advance to the final.
In particular, in the final match, the scene in which the pitcher and hitter faced off against fellow Angels teammate Shohei Otani (Japan) in the bottom of the 9th inning with two outs drew a lot of attention. Trout was struck out on a swing by Ohtani, and the U.S. stayed on as runner-up while watching Japan win. After the first fight with Ohtani, Trout promised the next round, saying, “He won the first round.”
