Who’s catching the World Baseball Classic on TV these days?
It seems more fun for the baseball players representing their respective countries than it is for spectators. That’s my opinion anyways.
I always enjoy the underdog stories so Israel finishing the opening round with a perfect 3-0 record is definitely an early highlight.
And watching the matchups that you wouldn’t normally see in Major League Baseball is interesting too – like Toronto Blue Jays’ teammates Jose Bautista and Marcus Stroman facing off against each other in an upcoming matchup.
But overall, it feels like there are fans from only a handful of teams that really seem to get into it. From a hobby perspective, it certainly doesn’t feel like there’s any value in the cards of big name players representing their countries.
There is this card (below) that just sold for $7 though.
I could be wrong. What are your thoughts? Take the poll below!
