It's the second edition of the international baseball tournament, and it kicked off today in Tokyo with defending champion Japan defeating China 4-0. I'm excited, especially since I'll be attending the games in Toronto. Canada is in a tough group with the USA, Venezuela and Italy, but I think they have a pretty good chance. The tournament in 2006 turned out better than I expected, so I'm looking forward to this one. Sites and teams: POOL A (Tokyo): Japan China Korea Chinese Taipei POOL B (Mexico City): Mexico Australia Cuba South Africa POOL C (Toronto): Canada USA Italy Venezuela POOL D (San Juan): Puerto Rico Dominican Republic Panama Netherlands After this round, the second round will take place in San Diego and Miami, with the semi-finals and finals to take place in Dodger Stadium. Anyone else watching this tournament? GO CANADA!
