In case you have been preoccupied lately with Football Free Agency, NBA Basketball, March madness or NHL hockey, there is meaningful baseball being played right now in Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium. It’s the World Baseball Classic and the US is in unfamiliar territory right now, as they face Japan tonight in the semifinals at 9pm eastern time.
It may not be the World Series, but your lovable MLB’ers are playing in it, and from what I have been reading and watching they are proud to be part of it. It is international baseball at its finest, and in case you have not been watching (and I know you havent) you have missed some great games.
So do yourself a favor, tune in tonight and watch the Americans take on the Japanese and try and remember baseball when it was pure, when it was meaningful, and when no one cared about money, cause this is good stuff.
