Of these, 24 final entries will be selected.
Players under the age of 25 or under the age of 4, and 3 wild cards (maximum 1 per club) with no age or annual membership restrictions. 1-3 players per club, 3 players per club is the maximum as the tournament is held without a season break.
KBO announced the preliminary list and explained, “The selection principle that can achieve the national team’s generational change and achievements at the same time was considered as a top priority.” “Wild Card is composed of players who can lead young players as the leader of the future national team based on league experience and compensate for weak positions,” he explained.

There are some things that need to be sorted out first.
First of all, it is the complicated issue of injured people. In particular, the pitcher side was injured one after another.
There is no ace to be responsible for an important match with Won Tae-in of Samsung. KT Sohn Joon So-jun, who was certain to be on the national team, ended up on the operating table with an elbow ligament rupture last May and was virtually out of the season.
The real concern is the players who have recovered or are recovering from injuries.
NC ace Koo Chang-mo, who was likely to win the wild card, voluntarily gave up after complaining of pain in the forearm of his left arm after facing just one batter in the match against LG, which was a return match from injury on the 2nd. He was diagnosed 3 weeks with microtrauma to his left forearm flexor muscle. In time, selection is possible.
Another national team ace candidate, Doosan Kwak Bindo, also withdrew twice due to back pain. On the 11th, he is scheduled to return to the Jamsil KIA match.
Ko Woo-seok of LG returned on the 4th after recovering from two injuries. Ko Woo-seok, who suffered a shoulder injury in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team, returned to NC on April 18th. However, he returned again in about a month after being excluded from the entry due to back pain in the match against Jamsil KIA on the 30th.
For both Kwak Bin and Go Woo-seok, it has become important to maintain a healthy body condition. If they are no longer sick, they are strong players to board.
KIA infielder Kim Do-young, who broke off with a metatarsal fracture in the left little toe after two games in the opening game, is also concentrating on recovery and return. The fracture site is almost stuck. He plans to return by early July at the latest through technical training during this month.
The 2023 KBO League NC Dinos and Doosan Bears match was held at Changwon NC Park on the 1st. Doosan’s Jeong Cheol-won, who was embroiled in controversy over having a drink in Japan during the WBC tournament, bows his head in apology.
The recent controversy surrounding the drinking of the WBC national team is also a variable.
Doosan’s Jeong Cheol-won, who is a party to the scandal, is included in the preliminary list of the national team. If it wasn’t for this incident, he would have been a strong player.
The KBO Disciplinary Committee will be held at 11 am on the 7th, before the final list of the national team is announced. Although the competition is different, it is necessary to coordinate the timing of the announcement of the list due to the bad news of the deviation of the national team players.
The final selected national team players will be convened in September, go through domestic training, and then depart for Hangzhou, China, where they will compete from October 1 to 7.
