Miracle on Dirt”…Freddy Freeman describes the WBC U.S. War in three words

  • February 19, 2023

In Canada and the United States, 먹튀검증 where the North American Ice Hockey League (NHL) has become a popular sport, the expression ‘Miracle on Ice’ is often used.

The expression ‘miracle on the ice’ appeared in the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, USA, when the United States overcame the Soviet Union’s absolute inferiority and won the gold medal. At that time, the United States lost 3-10 to the Soviet Union in an exhibition game held prior to the tournament. Accordingly, ahead of the Olympic finals, the New York Times of the United States said that there would be no change in the Soviet Union’s gold medal, ‘unless the ice melts or the United States creates a miracle’. The USA defeated the USSR 4-3.

Fried Freeman of the Los Angeles Dodgers, who will represent Canada in the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC), described the mindset of playing against the United States in the first round of the tournament as a ‘miracle on the soil’. In an interview introduced on the 19th by the American sports media ‘Clutch Point’, Freeman revealed his thoughts on the U.S. game in ‘three words’. (Miracle on Dirt)’. He spoke with an awareness of the reality of the difficulties of the US war and hope for a miracle.

Canada is in Group C along with the United States. The Canadian national team has starting pitchers such as Carl Quantrill (Cleveland) with an average ERA of 3.38 with 15 wins (5 losses) last season, and Nick Piveta (Boston) with an average ERA of 4.56 with 10 wins (12 losses) and 4 wins (4 losses) with an average of 9 holds. Bullpen pitchers such as Matt Brash with an ERA of 4.44, and Milwaukee infielder Abraham Toro are scheduled to play, but they are far short of the U.S. national team.

In the United States, there are many American professional baseball superstars such as Mike Trout (LA Angels) and Mookie Betts (LA Dodgers). So, in the Canadian national team, Freeman’s role in the superstar group is bound to be very important. Freeman posted 21 home runs and 100 RBIs last season with a batting average of 0.325 OPS and 0.918.

Previously, in the 2017 WBC, the two countries played the first round in the same group, Canada was eliminated with 3 losses, and the United States advanced to the second round with 2 wins and 1 loss, and enjoyed the joy of winning the tournament for the first time. While the difference in power is so obvious, one of the points to watch is that Freeman and Betts, who will be together at the Dodgers in April, will face off as representatives of the two countries.
