    What a way to start off the WBC. Israel wins in 10 innings 3-2.

    I would watch every game if I could. Playing hockey tonight so I'll catch the last half of tonight's game. Unfortunately, work gets in the way of some of these day games. I'll definitely be watching whatever games I can.

    I don't think its a thing for American baseball fans to be honest. Something tells me its way more popular for the people of countries like the Dominican Republic, Japan, etc.

    Yeah, we have the MLB, it's kind of cool on it's own merit


    If you had ever player actually playing from the country they were born in. And every player had to contribute....that would be one thing.

    Trout, Harper, Arenado, Rizzo, Bryant, Kershaw, etc on the American squad....now I'm probably paying more attention.

    Dominant win by the Netherlands. Schoop, Profar, Bogaerts, Didi, Simmons all look good.

    Cuba working on a late rally. Double play killer in the 7th.

    Too much offense for Japan. We'll see if Cuba rebounds later tonight against China.

    Netherlands got robbed on a bad call at first base. Instant replay only limited to home run challenges only in the first round.

    I actually like that the USA doesn't completely blow the doors off with a roster. I mean it would be cool but, I like that we kind've field a somewhat regular team. I do however understand why guys choose not to play.
