WBC Underway; Not in St. Pete

The World Baseball Classic is underway and there are exactly zero WBC games scheduled for Tampa Bay.  This isn't a huge surprise - especially given Major League Baseball's relationship with the region - but two years ago, Mayor Bill Foster thought the introduction of international teams training in St. Pete might lead to hosting some WBC games.

2013 WBC venues include Phoenix, Miami, and San Francisco.  Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Fla., got six play-in games last fall.

  1. Just more revenue the Rays are missing out on w/out a new ballpark... Oha, I forgot, this is the blog that's only for reasons why a new stadium WON'T work or make Tampa money... Your confusing us Noah!
