World Baseball CLassic

+ List of Tournaments
  • The World Baseball Classic is an international tournament sanctioned by the IBAF (international Baseball Federation). The tournament is comprised of 16 teams organized into 4 regional pools with playoffs and a championship game. The teams are comprised of professional players including Major Leaguers and Japanese League players. The rules for a player's nationality are somewhat relaxed and so they heritage is considered when creating teams for lesser-known baseball countries such as Italy of Greece.
  • The tournament takes place during Spring Training which results in many high-profile players declining their country's invitation in order to concentrate on preparing for the 162-game major league season.
  • 2013 notes. Pool A-D were round-robins.
  • 2009 notes. Pool A-D were double-elimination rounds. The games aren't listed but each Country's final record for the round is displayed.
