WBC venues set?

Peter Bjarkman, a Cuban baseball historian and a blogger for, is reporting that the sites for all the 2009 World Baseball Classic have been set.

The first round sites would be the Tokyo Dome, Rogers Centre, Hiram Bithorn Stadium (San Juan, PR), and Mexico City (Foro Sol Stadium).

The second round games would be held in Anaheim and San Diego and the semifinals and finals would be held in Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium. As opposed to the other large baseball stadium in Los Angeles.

The USA team would likely play its first round games in Toronto.

I wonder if tickets for the WBC finals will be as tough to get as Colsieum tickets. Don't people know its just a preseason game. And don't people know if they are going to go, the place to sit is LF about 30 rows up.

From Dylan Hernandez:

The San Diego Padres hosted the finals of the inaugural WBC in 2006, with the Angels hosting second-round games. The Angels will not be involved in the 2009 event, spokesman Tim Mead said.

"We're going to pass this time," Mead said. "We look forward to participating -- hopefully in 2013, or down the road."

I would assume then that if Anaheim dropped out, Phoenix would be the other venue. Or they could play all the games in San Diego, but that would make for a busy schedule.
