Get Behind Your Nation
Today is the day that single game tickets go on sale for the 2009 World Baseball Classic.
I can’t wait to see the best ballplayers in the world compete for their countries. Baseball should be an olympic sport, but since it isn’t, this tournament will let us all know who the best really is.
The best thing that ever happened in my baseball career was managing Team USA to its first and only Gold Medal in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia. It was great because I did something for my country.
That’s what each of the players are thinking too; how great it will be to do something for their country.
I hope all baseball fans can enjoy the greatness of the Classic.
And I’ll see you at Dodger Stadium for the semi finals, and the finals.
