Word on the street is Toronto is going serve as a host site during the first round of the 2009 World Baseball Classic. This comes from a source inside Major League baseball. The games will be held downtown at the Rogers Center. The official announcement of all four first round sites will come tonight from Tokyo.
Evidently Canada, the US and two other nations will play in the Toronto pool. Although I'm sure everyone is aware, the tournament is a 16 team field with many of the games top pro's playing for their respective countries. A pool in Toronto would likely garner large crowds with the US team being a part of it.
The finals are thought to be headed for Los Angeles. I'm sure there is more to come on this story, but I for one must say that I'm jacked at this news. I think Toronto is a great choice, and I will attend as many games as I possibly can.
Good game World Bowl.
