Team USA is attempting to defend its World Baseball Classic title this week in the 2023 version of the event, six years after it first won the international baseball crown. Mike Trout, Trea Turner, Mookie Betts, Nolan Arenado and Adam Wainwright are in the star-studded roster as USA Baseball played its first game of the competition on March 11 in Phoenix, defeating Great Britain 6-2. However, the Americans were blown out by Mexico on Sunday and now face two crucial games to end pool play.

Team USA plays Great Britain, Mexico, Canada and Colombia in Group C and can advance to the Quarterfinals with a place in the top two in the group. The journey begins at Chase Field in Arizona and ends at LoanDepot Park in Miami as Team USA progress to the Quarterfinals and beyond.

Team USA entered the tournament with the second best odds to win the 2023 World Baseball Classic, behind only the Dominican Republic, according to Caesars Sportsbook. The US defeated Puerto Rico to win the 2017 championship.

Here’s everything you need to know about the 2023 World Baseball Classic. Below is Team USA’s lineup and schedule (complete with TV channel). Some players like Bryce Harper and Clayton Kershaw originally wanted to play for Team USA but had to pull out of the event due to injury concerns.
