Welcome to the first World Baseball Classic Prediction Challenge!
Four players will be vying for a championship prize of $30 and a runner-up prize of $10.
Eight teams dominate our picks to advance to the Quarterfinals round: Cuba, the Netherlands, Japan, Korea, the United States, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. Michael is looking for home team Taipei to advance from Group A, while Richard will be looking for Venezuela to sneak past at least one team from the Caribbean in Miami.
The games begin from Asia shortly. Please note that the Quarterfinals Round will begin before the last Group Stage games are played. Follow the game at the Prediction Challenges web site and watch for the Forms to be published. Emails will be sent when rounds begin and end as well as when Forms are posted to help you along.
Good luck, and Play Ball!
