Although the focus was on ‘recovery’, there were also tactical movements such as defensive shift training.

In particular, Edmon, who failed to join the national team training held in Tucson, Arizona, USA, and returned to Korea on the 1st after training with his teammates in St. Louis in Jupiter, Florida, needed more concentration.

Edman was born to a Korean immigrant mother, Kwak Kyung-ah, and an American father, John Edman.

Edmund is the first player with a foreign nationality to be selected for the Korean baseball team.

“I was not born in Korea, but I am proud to be of Korean descent,” he said. “I will try to meet the high standards of Korean fans at the WBC. I will prepare well so that it can be revealed.”

After arriving in Korea on the 1st, he ate sundae soup.

He plans to meet his maternal grandmother for Korean food on the 2nd as well.

Edmon’s helpers are also increasing in the national team.

Edmon said, “In addition to (current major leaguer) Kim Ha-seong, Park Byeong-ho, who played for the Minnesota Twins in the major leagues, helped a lot. Park Byeong-ho has played for a long time in the KBO League and speaks English well.” .

In fact, March is a very important time for young major leaguers.

Coincidentally, this year, the major leagues introduced new rules such as the pitch clock, and players learn the new rules through demonstration games.

Edmund chose to play for the WBC instead of major league exhibition games.

He calmly said, “It takes time to adapt to the new regulations such as the pitch clock, but there is no major difficulty.

At the end of the interview, Edmund said, “Thank you.”

Edmund’s Korean pronunciation is getting more and more accurate. He melts into the Korean national team faster.
