In the end, Choi Ji-man failed to join the WBC.

KBO said on the 6th, “On the 5th (Korean time), WBCI (World Baseball Classic Inc), the WBC organizing committee, announced that Choi Ji-man (Pittsburgh Pirates) could not participate in the WBC.”

According to this, Ji-man Choi’s team, the Pittsburgh Pirates, is said to have expressed a medical objection to the WBCI, citing Choi’s surgical history.

The WBCI held an injury review committee to deliberate on whether or not to allow Choi Ji-man to participate in the WBC, and decided as such.  스포츠토토
