Mexico at the WBC

June of 2005 marks the day where, for the first time, the Major League Baseball announced the formation of the World Baseball Classic, a 16 nation international competition to be held in March of 2006.

The Mexican Baseball Committee announced it's provisional 33 man roster on February 13, 2006, but then reduced it down to just 30 players on March 2, 2006. All teams participating in the tournament need to have a minimum of three catchers and thirteen pitchers.

Mexican Baseball

Baseball is one of Mexico's best entertainment values. Palcos or box seats run around 80 pesos at the Foro Sol, and general admission access to the bleachers costs about 20 pesos. Last May, Mexico City's rival baseball teams, the Tigres Capitalinos and Diablos Rojos, moved from Parque Seguridad Social to the new Foro Sol in Ciudad Deportiva. What the new stadium lacks in history, it makes up for in style

The regular season runs from April to August, and as the summer heats up, you can find Mexican baseball statistics, standings, results, photos, maps, and news on the Web.
