Canadian baseball fans have something to look forward to in 2023, as the World Baseball Classic (WBC) returns for its fifth edition. This international tournament will provide an opportunity for Canada's up-and-coming baseball players to showcase their skills on a global stage and become household names.
The 2023 World Baseball classic will be an opportunity for our young Canadian team to show what they are capable of. Canada will be in a pool with the United States, the Dominican Republic, and Nicaragua. This will be a tough challenge for Canada, as they will be facing some of the best baseball players in the world.
In 2022, 15 Canadian-born players were drafted to the MLB and more Canadian baseball players have made it to the big leagues in recent years.
