Ahn Young-myeong (38), who retired last year after playing as a right-handed pitcher for the domestic professional baseball Hanwha Eagles and KT Wiz, expressed public support for the remarks made by Choo Shin-soo (41, SSG Landers) and An Woo-jin (23, Kiwoom Heroes) regarding school violence controversy. The post was deleted due to criticism.

According to the baseball world on the 25th, Ahn Young-myeong said on social media the day before, “Senior Choo Shin-soo’s recent candid remarks on radio in the United States have a big impact. .

Furthermore, he pointed out, “Isn’t it better than those who show up in front of you as seniors proudly by taking criticism of juniors as a job?” and “Who is the one who develops in Korean baseball?”

At the same time, he drew a line, saying, “I will keep quiet about whether the content of my remarks was appropriate.”

Ahn Young-myeong said, “I also actively support clean baseball, and regardless of right or wrong, it is worth listening to what anyone has said about their thoughts.” I will,” he said.

Since then, it has been controversial, and currently, Ahn Young-myeong’s SNS account has been switched to private.

Previously, Choo Shin-soo appeared on ‘DKNET’, a Korean radio broadcast in Dallas, Texas, USA, and expressed his position to speak bitterly about various domestic baseball issues such as Ahn Woo-jin’s ‘school violence controversy’.

First of all, regarding Woojin An’s failure to board the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) team due to the ‘controversy over school violence’, “Ahn Woojin obviously did the wrong thing, but as a third party, it’s very unfortunate to see only what he hears and sees.” He is a player with the talent to become the next best pitcher. He is playing baseball in Korea, but there are so many things he doesn’t understand.”

Furthermore, “It is the job of Korean baseball to create opportunities to go abroad by showing your face in international competitions. It is very regrettable,” he said. “Rather than covering (Ahn Woo-jin), it seems that it is not easy to forgive in Korea. If people made (mistakes) when they were young, they repented of their mistakes, were punished, and were even suspended from business trips, but they couldn’t go to international competitions,” he said.

In addition, Choo Shin-soo said about the boarding of senior Kim Gwang-hyeon (34, SSG Landers) and Yang Hyeon-jong (34, Kia Tigers) on the WBC team, saying, “If you look at Japan alone, there are many new faces when you play international competitions. If it were me, I would have seen the future. There should have been more newly selected players than immediate results. Until when are Kim Kwang-hyeon and Yang Hyeon-jong. There are many young and talented players, so why can’t they do it?”

Ahn Young-myeong has been active as a right-handed pitcher for Hanwha Eagles, Kia Tigers, and KT Wiz since 2006, but retired in June of last year and is currently working as a psychological counseling trainer at KT Wiz.
