LOS ANGELES – The World Baseball Classic will make its final stop in Los Angeles when Dodger Stadium plays host for the semifinal and final rounds March 20-22.
This is the first time since 2009 where WBC games will be played at Dodger Stadium when it hosted the same rounds.
The San Diego Padres Petco Park will see WBC second-round action March 14-18. Miami’s Marlins Park hosted the now-concluded first round.
Reporting for CBS Sports Matt Snyder quoted Dodgers team president Stan Kasten: “The Los Angeles Dodgers and the City of Los Angeles are excited to be selected as the host of the World Baseball Classic semi-finals and final. Dodger Stadium and our great fans look forward to the finest players in the world competing for the WBC championship.”
The Dodgers will have four active players and three minor league players participating in the 2017 World Baseball Classic, including, for Team Mexico, first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and catcher Sergio Romo.
