‘Glass defect’ WBC national team returns to normal on March 1 after twists and turns
I encountered bad news on my way back home, but thanks to my quick response, I was able to handle my schedule normally.
The Korean baseball team participating in the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) finished joint training in Tucson, Arizona, USA on the 28th (Korean time), divided into three groups, and boarded a plane heading to Los Angeles, California.
One plane with 22 athletes on board stopped taking off due to a fuselage defect while speeding down the runway. Coach Lee Kang-cheol, coaches, Kang Baek-ho, Ko Woo-seok, Lee Jung-hoo, Kim Gwang-hyun and other KBO officials were also on board.
It is fortunate that the fuselage defect was discovered just before take-off.
The WBC team, which trained in Tucson from the 14th to the 27th local time, was scheduled to depart from Tucson on the afternoon of the 27th and head to Incheon via LA, but in the end, they could not travel to LA by plane.
KBO urgently hired a bus locally. LG Twins, which set up a camp in Arizona, provided the team bus. Still, it took 7-8 hours to get to LA Airport, so I couldn’t board the plane to Incheon that I was supposed to board in LA.토토사이트
Despite the difficult situation, it is expected that the schedule scheduled for the 2nd (recovery training) and the 3rd (evaluation) will be digested without difficulty by securing an alternative flight to return home on the afternoon of the 1st of next month with a quick response.
Unlike the corresponding group, the coaches and players, who traveled to LA on a different plane, will return home as scheduled at 5:00 am on March 1st.
Meanwhile, Kim Ha-seong (San Diego) and Tommy Hyeon-soo Edman (St. Louis), who played an exhibition match right before their departure from the US, will return to Korea on March 1st.
