USA World Baseball Classic Players
Team USA headed into the World Baseball Classic has one thing on their mind: the gold medal. Thwarted in 2006 and 2009, the USA team is made up of all major leaguers and boasts some pretty big names – from David Wright and Ryan Braun to Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey and Gio Gonzalez.
Led by Joe Torre as the manager, Team USA will play in Pool D along with Canada, Italy and Mexico. Their first-round game action will take place on March 4 versus Mexico, March 9 versus Italy and March 10 versus Team Canada. All games will take place at Chase Field, home to the Arizona Diamondbacks.
