VIDEO: Team USA To Face Japan In World Baseball Classic Semifinals On Tuesday
By Ken Rosenthal, Fox Sports // March 20, 2017
SECOND APPEARANCE IN SEMIS FOR AMERICANS
ABOVE VIDEO: Is it too early to have a baseball catch of the year contender? I don’t think so, especially since this one involves two MLB stars in a WBC elimination game. And it’s even better in that it involves two stars that happen to play on the same major league team, the Baltimore Orioles.
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA (FOX SPORTS) – If there was no such thing as Team USA lore in the World Baseball Classic before, there is now. Or at least, there should be.
Center fielder Adam Jones’ catch Saturday was the stuff of legend, the kind of play that, had it happened in the World Series, would be celebrated for generations.
Maybe, just maybe, American baseball fans will view the tournament differently now.
Team USA, after its stirring 6-3 triumph over the Dominican Republic, is headed to the semi-finals for only the second time in four tries.
Its next opponent will be Japan on Tuesday at Dodger Stadium, and team officials have informed Nationals right-hander Tanner Roark that he will start.
