World Baseball Classic Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The World Baseball Classic is an international baseball tournament sanctioned from 2006 to 2013 by the International Baseball Federation and after 2013 by World Baseball Softball Confederation in partnership with Major League Baseball. It was proposed to the IBAF by Major League Baseball (MLB), the Major League Baseball Players Association, and other professional baseball leagues and their player's associations around the world. It is one of the two main senior baseball tournament sanctioned by the WBSC, but the only one which grants to the winner the title of "World Champion".
The World Baseball Classic most important games start very late at night, according to a report published by Grant Brisbee on sbnation.com
"Problem: There are a bunch of games that start in the dead of night. One of these years, I’m going to stay up. The opening game, Israel vs. Korea, was at 1:30 a.m. PT, which is way too late. I happened to be in Washington D.C., where it was at 4:30 a.m., which is way too early. One of these years, though, I’m going to stay up.
I wanted to watch the pomp, and I was hoping for a smattering of circumstance, but there’s just no way. And if you miss the opening, it’s a lot harder to get hooked for the rest of the tournament. There have been important games played on the other side of the world at times that are absurdly inconvenient for this side of the world, and other important games played on this side of the world that are absurdly inconvenient for everyone else.
And good luck avoiding spoilers if you want to DVR a game or two. They crawl out of my phone and whisper into my ear."
