The World Baseball Classic in Mexico City

On Sunday, the World Baseball Classic started the first of six games to be played here in México, D.F., at Foro Sol.  They day was actually a day-night double-header, with Cuba playing South Africa at noon and Mexico against Australia at 7pm.  

the pricey seats behind home plate were not.

I couldn’t tell the final score, though it was definitely a lot (Cuba) to one (South Africa), with fans giving a standing ovation when the sudafricanos broke the shutout with a run-scoring single with two outs in the top of the ninth.  Baseball in México looks a lot like baseball in the U.S.
