The World Baseball Classic team had their first official training yesterday (16th). The weather was so cold that it snowed in the desert climate of Arizona, USA, but the players did not care and sweated hard.

The outfits of the players getting off the bus after arriving at the training ground are like midwinter.
The weather in Tucson dropped to minus 3 degrees Celsius, snowed at dawn, and the rain that fell in the morning was freezing cold.
Players who had been training outside of Tucson were clearly perplexed.
[Park Se-woong/WBC national team pitcher: (Busan) I think the weather is much nicer in Sang-dong. (It’s too cold) It’s 15 degrees the same as above. I have to buy clothes, too.]
Still, once training started, the players warmed up with bright expressions, and So-Jun So-Jun broke through the wind and threw the bullpen first.
Fortunately, as the cold eased in the afternoon, the players energized themselves.
[Yang Eui-ji / WBC national team catcher: I was surprised that the weather was very cold, and since it was my first training today, I am satisfied that we had fun exercising together.] [Lee Kang-cheol / WBC national team coach: The beasts have been in good shape, and the pitcher is better than I thought
. I guess I’m a little late. Still, I think it was good for the first day of practice.]
Coach Kang-cheol Lee asked the players to be careful of injuries and to improve their physical condition.
The WBC national team, which successfully completed its first training session through the cold, will coordinate their practice sense through an evaluation match with NC today.
The NC game will be played in 7 innings, and 7 pitchers will throw 1 inning each.
