Unlike the Olympics, Major League players will be able to compete in the 2009 World Baseball Classic representing their respective countries. It is shaping up to be an amazing tournament that will put the very best ball players on display for the world to see. That being said, I would like to give out some pre-tourney awards as we ready ourselves for this stellar display of baseball talent:
First, to the player who was born in
Second, I would like to award the World Baseball Classic for choosing a time of year when no one is ready to play. March is not baseball season, and eventually they will have to move it to the middle of summer and just take a break in the MLB schedule.
A quick shout out to
Congratulations to team
And finally, I would like to award
