Ah!

I'm tempted to ask "Baseball? What's baseball?" but that would be cynical.

I have heard of the game.

Deliberate practice of one hour is worth ten hours of normal practice.

I thought it was bad boxing. Whistle

OK, if I put in a Whistle every time I am just kidding, it becomes too bobbly. Take one as read after every comment.

It is apparently when the US (+Canada) realise they are not 'the world' in baseball and foreign teams beat them. [No offence. But if you will call your domestic competition the world series, you will get mocked for it )

Drago - shame on you for not supporting the British team! :)
It lists them as qualifiers but in baseball speak that seems to mean they didn't qualify. Not surprising, though. Schools move on from rounders by secondary school. :)
Presumably almo is happy 'cos Japan just thrashed China.

Sadly, Iceland not represented. Apparently there is one club in Iceland, started a few years ago by an American. Being the only club makes competition difficult - the national championship is against itself. It tends to win. :)

Yeah - I never did understand the North American continental predilection for little-girl sports.

This picture is not displayed in your message unless you first show them you are not a robot.

And before following the original poster's link the first thing I thought was it should be Washington Broadcasting Corporation.

Thanks Almo.

So - to answer your original question:

It would appear that no-one is watching it.

Reasons (again, in jest)

Europe in general doesn't play baseball (Holland appears to be an exception).
Americans don't dare watch. :)
The Chinese have just stopped watching? (I don't know, is it knockout or round-robin?)
The heartland of Central and South America doesn't seem to be represented here.
Just the Japanese and Koreans left.....Anxious

WBC 2017 March 15: Japan vs Israel


This game is very important to proceed to next round in Los Angeles.

Israel is very strong this time because almost all players are American-born playng in American Major League.
