To make Korea more humiliated… “Ichiro’s Creepy Talk About the WBC
That was the case at that time. The whole country fell into despair. for one ball. It was the 2009 WBC final. It was the top of the 10th inning when it was 3-3. 2 out 2nd and 3rd base. Ichiro appeared at the plate. Changyong is invincible on the mound.
After two strikes, a scuffle breaks out. It is a repeated foul. count 2-2. This is the 8th pitch of fate. The forkballs were randomly driven. someone who typed There is no way. It’s a lightning reaction. Accurate without error The bounced ball is a clothesline. Timely hit in front of center fielder. Two runners hit home. The direction of victory was different.
This scene caused great controversy. 메이저놀이터 The agenda was ‘why did you win’. For a while, it was a regular menu on TV and radio. A special documentary, of course. It even appeared in the ‘100 Minute Debate’. It must have been awful at a drinking party. Arguments, fist fights, and riding in police cars were not uncommon.
The regret of the officials is also painful. These are statements made through various interviews.
“It’s because I didn’t look. I should have signed it more clearly. It was not Lim Chang-yong’s fault that he got the final blow. If the result is not good, it is the responsibility of the teacher.” (Former coach Kim In-shik)
“It is entirely my fault. The director gave a sign waving the index finger of both hands. I didn’t know if it meant that it was okay to walk, or to fight hard. I tried to make it difficult because the opponent was my opponent, but due to my fault, senior Chang-yong’s forkball was driven into the middle and gave me the final blow.” (Catcher Kang Min-ho)
“There was no sign telling me to walk Ichiro. I ended up losing just like that with just one mistake anyway. Then it is my fault.” (Pitcher Lim Chang-yong)
It’s been over 10 years. But it is vivid in my memory. So does the winner.
This is a Japanese YouTube channel. It was produced by a securities company called SMBC Nikko Shoken (日興証券). ‘Please teach me. The title is “Oshiete! Ichiro Sensei”. The background is a school classroom. The main character is the teacher role. Students range from children to those in their 70s. This is a form in which the teacher responds to their questions. Episode 27 was uploaded in 2020.
This is one episode. The subtitle was ‘How can I suppress my emotions’. A question from one parent. “The mischievous man is raising his son. he doesn’t listen too much So emotionally upset. How did you restrain your emotions?”
This is the teacher (Ichiro)’s answer to this.
“Being emotional is losing. In conclusion, unconditionally You can’t win against a cold-hearted person. Baseball feels great when you hit. But you shouldn’t show your opponent that way. He is seen as an insignificant player. In other words, when the other person sees it, they think ‘this guy likes it with only this much’. then it’s no fun But when I see a player who doesn’t show emotion, I think, ‘I got a hit in this situation, don’t you like it?’ Doing so will make you wonder. So I was always conscious of this, and didn’t show my feelings.”
And give specific examples. Essentially, this is the scene in question. The moment that appeared in the 100-minute discussion.
“Some of you may remember the 2009 WBC. It was when I hit a hit in the final game against Korea. As he ran, he thought about what to do. I thought I shouldn’t look at the dugout because it was obvious that all of our team would be happy. Because when I see it, I have to react accordingly.”
It can only be done here. What follows is surprising. It’s kind of embarrassing.
“What is the most humiliating thing about an opponent? It occurred to me that I wasn’t happy about it. When I acted the same as usual, if the other person had the mindset of ‘I really can’t do this to this guy’, I thought ‘this is it’. That is, thinking about what happened before your eyes. That way you can be relatively cool.”
