WBC Opponents

World Baseball Classic teams visit Bright House Network, Canada today and USA tomorrow. 

Game with USA starts at 12:05 p.m. and the team then leaves for Toronto and the start of the WBC on Saturday.  Because of the early start tomorrow, Bright House Field gates will open early at 9:35 a.m.

Tomorrow’s USA-Phillies game means fans can root for both teams. 

MLB Network is in camp, Trenni Kusnierek, the on-site reporter.  Her story on the Phillies will air at 8 p.m. tomorrow.

Camp Notes
Minor league pitchers and catchers report to Carpenter Field tomorrow.  Position players report on Monday.  Total number of players expected, 164 . . . Jody Mac of ESPN 950 AM in Philly is broadcasting live from French’s Tiki Bar tomorrow from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m . . . Howard Eskin of WIP will be in the same location from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and again on Friday . . . “B” game with Blue Jays on Friday is 2 p.m. at Bright House Field.  No admission charge . . . In response to a fan inquiry, box scores of “B” games are not kept.  Usually, the pitchers are on a pitch count and sometimes normal game conditions aren’t followed (putting runners on base to start an inning, is one example).  PR department always has a person at the “B” games to record some stats.  Best place for “B” game information in Todd Zolecki’s blog, the Zo Zone.
