As mentioned in yesterday’s post, the World Baseball Classic will be held next year with the same countries playing. I wrote that the venues will be announced next month. Today I found out through a fellow blogger, that Dodger Stadium will host the semi-finals and the final game. That’s great news. I think the city of Los Angeles deserves it. L.A. is a international city and I’m sure it won’t have a problem in selling out these games. The first round will be held at the following 4 cities, Toronto (Rogers Centre-Blue Jays Stadium), Mexico City, Tokyo (Tokyo Dome) and San Juan, Puerto Rico (Hiram Bithorn Stadium). The Second Round will be held at Anaheim (Angels Stadium) and San Diego (Petco Park) It then ends at Dodger Stadium. An official announcement of these tentative plans is scheduled for next month.
