U.S., Cuba May Get One More Rematch
There's a World Cup going on? Really? It's hard to tell in the United States these days, but the world's largest international baseball tournament is winding down in Europe, and the U.S. is the leader in the clubhouse. The 2009 World Cup has spanned seven nations—they played first-round games in baseball hotbeds such as Croatia, the Czech Republic and Sweden—and nearly three weeks. It's not quite the soccer World Cup, and it's not even the World Baseball Classic, but it is a 22-nation event that has involved 100 players from major league organizations, not to mention Cuba's top-level national team.
