Dominican Republic threatens to hold WBC hostage
2008-03-04 18:26
by Bob Timmermann

The Associated Press reports that the president of the Dominican Republic baseball federation has threatened to pull the nation out of the 2009 World Baseball Classic unless a Dominican city is picked to host first round games.

"If they do not give us the opportunity of being a host, like we have requested, the Dominican Republic will not participate," league president Leonardo Matos Berrido said at a news conference Monday.

The Dominican Republic made it to the semifinals in the 2006 WBC, losing to Cuba 3-1.

Do the Dominicans have much to gain by threatening to drop out?

See ya later. Just let the state of Texas have their own team, they are like another country anyways.

Actually, a Texas team would probably do pretty well in the WBC. At the least, they'd have one heck of a pitching staff.
