The 2023 World Baseball Classic is back. Team USA kicked off their title defense on Saturday night with a Kyle Schwarber-powered win over Great Britain. The USA are back in action against Mexico in Phoenix on Sunday night. Elsewhere, Japan and Shohei Ohtani are on course for the Quarterfinals with a perfect 4-0 finish in pool. Cuba and Italy are also on the rise thanks to a crazy tiebreaker in Pool A. In Group D on Saturday, Venezuela managed a big win against tournament favorites Dominican Republic. The action continues on Sunday with a packed schedule.

This version of the WBC was originally scheduled to be played in 2021 but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The action started on Wednesday, March 8 (the 2023 WBC Taiwan opener’s technically first pitch was on March 7 at 11:00pm ET) and there will be a total of 47 games. The championship game is scheduled for Tuesday, March 21 in Miami.

Many MLB stars are attending the event including Shohei Ohtani, Juan Soto, Julio Rodr√≠guez, Francisco Lindor, Mike Trout and Trea Turner.
