  • WBC Exhibition Games Catch All Thread

    This is a place where we can post all of the info on exhibition games. It's always easy to see when WBC teams are playing against MLB teams, but it can be difficult to find info like Holland playing Eckard College or Japan playing the NPB All-Stars in 2006.

    Thanks to Rally Monkey for the info in the other thread to get the ball rolling here. I did a little googleing and found some more info too. So far we have:

    3/3
    TBD vs. Florida Marlins
    Panama vs. Atlanta Braves

    3/4
    TBD vs. Florida Marlins
    TBD vs. Seattle Mariners
    TBD vs. Philadelphia Phillies
    Dominican Republic vs. Baltimore Orioles

    3/5
    TBD vs. St. Louis Cardinals
    TBD vs. Philadelphia Phillies
    TBD vs. Texas Rangers
    TBD vs. Oakland Athletics
    Venezuela vs. Atlanta Braves
    Puerto Rico vs. Tampa Bay Rays

    3/6
    TBD vs. Cleveland Indians

    3/12
    TBD vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

      Panama vs. Atlanta Braves
      Canada vs. Toronto Blue Jays

      TBD vs. Seattle Mariners
      TBD vs. Philadelphia Phillies
      Dominican Republic vs. Baltimore Orioles
      United States vs. Toronto Blue Jays

      3/5

        Hmm...isn't Mexico organizing a rally or some exhibition series against some of the other WBC teams prior to the WBC itself? Would that count?

          Yeah, I would think that we can include any game that a WBC team plays that isn't an official WBC game.

            Well here is the thread with the details:
            http://www.baseball-fever.com/showth...+warm+up+games

            ...but the derby is supposed to have finished already (it was supposed to happen Oct 18 & 19) and it was only a HR derby so i doubt it counts. But in the same thread quinnystar27 mentioned that Venezuela was planning to host some exhibition games with latin american countries before the WBC so those should count......

            quinny, any more news about that?

              I've been looking for info on Venezuela hosting some exhibition games, but I haven't been able to find anything yet. However, it appears that the Red Sox and Yankees will be playing some games vs. WBC teams. Also, according to Cleveland's spring training schedule they will not be playing an exhibition game vs. a WBC team so that will be deleted until confirmed by the club.

              3/3
              TBD vs. Florida Marlins
              Panama vs. Atlanta Braves

                The Giants have announced that they will be playing an exhibition game against a WBC team on the 11th. I'm assuming this will be a team from Pool A.

                  The derby never happened. I read on one site (sorry, I can't find it now) that the Mexico City authorities never responded to Team Mexico's request to use the Zocalo for the derby. I recall reading that the organizers still hoped they could do it--if not in the Zocalo, then perhaps at the Foro Sol stadium.

                      Wow, that must have been a pretty good time. Have you heard anything about any exhibition games that Holland will be playing against non-MLB teams? The Twins have announced an exhibition with them. A few other teams have announced WBC exhibition games as well.

                            Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and China will tune-up for the WBC against the Yomiuri Giants in the Tokyo Dome in late February and early March.

                            http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/feedarticle/8104140

                            I wouldn't be surprised to see them square off against at least one other Japanese pro team.
