The teams representing each country will include their best players, including professional baseball players.

In recent additions of the WBC the players who have participated include baseball greats like Yadier Molina, Carlos Correa, Christian Yelich, Carlos Beltran, Robinson Canu and David Wright.
The many international teams, and players, make the atmosphere at the World Baseball Classic truly special. Fans attending games feel energy in the stands that is more like a gold medal event in the Olympic than a regular MLB game. Many of the fans attending the games have traveled to the USA to attend. There are also plenty of families in the crowd who have come to see those big names battle for their country in this international competition. Expect playing of really loud cheering and plenty of crowd participation from everyone in the stands who attends the World Baseball Classic.
Fun fact: The inaugural year of the World Baseball Classic was 2006. Japan won, and then also won again the second time the WBC was held in 2009.
