The overseas movement of players from 10 KBO League teams has begun. The 10 clubs will start spring camp for the 2023 season on February 1st. Due to the global spread of Corona 19, each club that has prepared for the season in Korea for the past two years will train abroad at once in three years after 2020. Lotte on the 20th, KT on the 23rd, and SSG on the 25th. For three days starting on the 29th, just before the start of the camp, the headquarters of each club will leave the country in turn.
The camp is concentrated in Arizona, USA. Clubs that once gathered in Okinawa, Japan, and moved to the United States for several years just before Corona 19, chose the United States again this time. Six teams, LG, Kiwoom, Hanwha, KIA, KT, and NC, will gather in Arizona. LG and Kiwoom set up camps in Scottsdale, Hanwha in Mesa, and KT·KIA·NC in Tucson. SSG trains in Vero Beach, Florida.
Although the cost burden has increased compared to before due to the excellent won-dollar exchange rate, the United States is still popular due to the warm weather and the baseball field environment. In particular, six teams gathered in Arizona this year and it is easy to match opponents for practice matches.
The training ground for the World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team is also in Tucson, Arizona. It was chosen as the training ground for the national team because the camps of many teams are concentrated in Arizona, making it easy to catch opponents for practice games and easy for players to join. Head coach Lee Kang-cheol, who is the KT command tower and also has to lead the national team, plans to lead the KT training until the 14th and officially join the national team from the 15th to begin preparations for the tournament in earnest. KT, KIA, and LG, who train nearby, are also planning practice games with the national team. 온라인바카라
Lotte trains in Guam and Doosan trains in Sydney, Australia. Samsung is the only camp in Okinawa, Japan, which was the most popular campground in the KBO League in the past. From the end of February, KIA, SSG, Hanwha, and Lotte will finish the first camp in the United States and Guam and move to Okinawa to start the second camp.
Top-rated high school rookies such as Kim Seo-hyun (Hanwha), Yoon Young-chul (KIA), and Yoon Jun-ho (Doosan) prepare to show their presence together at the first-team camp. At the beginning of the camp, local interest in Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom), who declared a challenge to advance to the major leagues, and LG and Doosan’s new start with the new command tower made a fuss. It is expected to get hotter.
