Mexico World Baseball Classic Players
Mexico enters the World Baseball Classic with the daunting task of being in the same pool as the United States. However, they do feature a number of familiar names from Major League Baseball rosters such as Adrian Gonzalez, who is a perennial All Star, Jorge Cantu and Francisco Rodriguez.
Led by Rick Renteria as the manager, Mexico will play in Pool D along with the United States, Italy and Canada. Their first round game action will take place on March 7 versus Italy, March 8 versus the United States and March 9 versus Canada. All games will take place at Chase Field.
