ABOUT WORLD BASEBALL CLASSIC
World Baseball Classic is an international professional baseball tournament featuring the best players from across the globe. The last held tournament in Japan in 2017 was meant to be followed by a 2021 event, cancelled due to COVID-19, meaning this will be the first WBC held in 6 years.
Japan won the inaugural WBC in 2006 and retained the title in 2009. They are currently ranked #1 while Australia is the top-ranked team in Oceania and #10 in the WBSC Rankings.
