Congratulations to Japan on winning the World Baseball Classic championship! And congrats, as well, to Shohei Ohtani on earning MVP honors. As a United States citizen and resident, I was naturally rooting for the USA to repeat, but I certainly can’t be mad about Japan taking the title. The whole nation is so passionate about baseball, and they produce some amazing ballplayers.

One thought on “Japan wins World Baseball Classic”
Agreed! Very cool to see the MLB players on their respective country teams and learn about some of the other great players around the world. Really good final game too. Though I too would have liked to have seen the U.S. repeat, congrats to Ohtani and his teammates on a well deserved championship.
