WBC Final @ Dodger Stadium

A_celebrate_412As 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.

Sorry Roberto, I have not commented lately but I have had lots of work to do.

I am glad to see Troy is going to be going to see Spring Training. I hope he gets his favorite Dodgers autographs.

Will you be going to any different baseball parks this season Roberto?

Hi Chris, I’m sure I will go to some ballparks this year. I hope so :) What about you ?

I will be going to see the Yankees in August 100% this year. I really book my snaggging/autograph trips when I can find a cheap flight and hotel and tickets.

Do you think you are going to go the Rogers Centre?

No I won’t be making a trip to the Rogers Centre. Too far. :) Maybe one day but not now.

It will be interesting to see if the WBC generates as much buzz as it did last year, or if the novelty has worn off. Personally I found the whole thing really exciting am looking forward to checking this out next year!

I enjoyed the World Baseball Classic so much. I think it’s great what they are doing. I can’t wait till next year. Thanks for the comments. Nice site by the way.

Hey Roberto:

Thanks for the information about the World Baseball Classic. I will be attending the game in Toronto and will buy tickets as soon as they go up for sale!

UPDATE: According to the LA Times, the Anaheim Angels will not host any games. So we have to wait for the announcement to see which stadiums will host.
