    Unit312J, you said that there would be close to nobody in the stands for non-Japan games at the Tokyo Dome. In 2017, that was not true.

    Cuba vs. China 39,102, Cuba vs. Australia 38,050
    The empty seats show something.
    In fact, they used one ticket - two games plan.
    People wanted to see night-game Samurai Japan.
    The numbers counted on tickets sales.

    • Chendd,

      Is what you are saying that you could not buy just one ticket to see a Japan game, but you had to buy a two-game ticket for both a Japan game and a Cuba game ? And therefore the Cuba game might have just had perhaps 12,000 fans in the seats rather than the 39,102 tickets sold ?

      But if that is the case, why wouldn't the Japan and Cuba games had the same 40,000-plus attendance figure ?

      • It occurs to me that our guessing games on this site about where and who the WBC teams will be playing against are of three types:

        1. Who and where the WBC teams SHOULD be playing against and where, along with the reasons why ?

        2. Who and where the WBC teams PROBABLY will be playing against and where, along with the reasons why ?

        3. Who and where the WBC teams we HOPE will be playing against and where ?

        • Concerning the debate between round robin and modified double elimination:

          There are serious handicaps to modified double elimination. First, fans and media do not know when the teams will play. Second, the 2-2 team or the 3-1 team play four games, while the 0-2 team plays only two games. And the 0-2 team is the one that needs more international experience. Third, some teams play each other twice and other teams never play each other. It is so complicated that it makes your head swirl. We should just use round robin and everything is simple.

            1. They only sale two-game tickets in first and second round. I bought tickets to watch second-round games in Tokyo Dome in 2017. The answers are both "yes".
            2. Some local workers didn't buy tickets in advance. They buy tickets on site after work. The numbers count on the time game set.

            • If this is true about the one ticket for two games, why aren't the two Cuba games attendance figures exactly the same for both the afternoon game and the evening game ?

                Some people bought tickets after the afternoon game.
                You cannot count these plus numbers after the afternoon game over.
