Olympic Baseball has been cancelled and the World Cup of Baseball is too amateurish. Finally Catholicgauze's wish of international professional baseball has been granted! The World Baseball Classic is a month away!
China, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Canada, Mexico, United States, South Africa, Cuba, Netherlands, Panama, Puerto Rico, Australia, Dominican Republic, Italy, and Venezuela are competing for the world championship. I eagerly await this tournament.
The tournament has not been without controversy however.
Baseball is truly an international sport. It did not spread with a conquering imperial country but via lines of communication. Let the World Baseball Classic bring people closer together.
