2023 World Baseball Classic: Schedule, TV Network, WBC scores with USA-Colombia among Wednesday’s big games

The 2023 World Baseball Classic is in full swing and pool play concludes on Wednesday with three crucial games on the schedule. Team USA are one win away from the quarterfinals and can advance to the knockout rounds if they beat Colombia in Phoenix on Wednesday night. Elsewhere in Group C, Mexico meets Canada in the afternoon, with the winner of that game also advancing in the group. In Pool D, Venezuela has secured a spot in the quarterfinals and the other will be decided by winner Puerto Rico against the Dominican Republic in Miami.

The quarter-finals started on the other side of the table on Wednesday as Cuba faced Australia. Those teams will be joined by Japan, Italy and Venezuela in the round of eight, with three spots yet to be determined.

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. Full squad rosters can be viewed here, and Here’s an introduction to the event from CBS Sports’ Mike Axisa. Here are Matt Snyder’s power rankings for the tournament.
