The Korean baseball team suffered another round of elimination at the WBC.

The Korean baseball team failed to advance to the quarterfinals at the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) and was eliminated in the first round. Following the 2013 and 2017 competitions, the 2023 competition, held six years later, was also packed in the first round.

Korea will have its last group match against China in Group B in the first round of the World Baseball Classic (WBC) at Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan at 7:00 pm on the 13th.

However, in the previous match, Australia defeated the Czech Republic and won 3 wins and 1 loss, securing second place in the group following Japan (4 wins) and taking the remaining ticket to the quarterfinals. Even if Korea wins against China, it is only 2 wins and 2 losses.
