BBF on WBC 2009

by Matt Smith

For those of you who haven’t yet seen it, the British Baseball Federation has issued a response to the news that the Great Britain team has been overlooked for the 2009 World Baseball Classic.

As noted here earlier in the week, the BBF had contacted MLB about the possibility of Team GB taking the second European spot in the tournament, but the organizers decided to keep the same line-up as the ’06 competition instead, resulting in Italy and the Netherlands being the Euro representatives in MLB’s flagship international event.
