The Korea Baseball Organization, the national governing body of professional baseball, announced the 24-man roster for the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games in September, which had been postponed to 2023 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The team, composed of 24 players, features not only veteran talent but rising young stars. The infield is fortified by players like Kang Baek-ho of KT Wiz, while the outfield boasts talents like Lee Jung-hoo from Kiwoom Heroes, at 23 and 24 years old respectively.
The pitching roster includes right-handers like Go Woo-suk of LG Twins and the “wild card” left-hander Koo Chang-mo of NC Dinos, currently nursing a flexor injury.
Additionally, a budding amateur pitcher Jang Hyun-suk from Masan Yongma High School has made the cut.
