Re: In Defense of the WBC
Here is what i see. Maybe 100 years down the road.
A true world league of baseball. With Divisions in each continent. Maybe just Asia to start, but eventually Europe, Africa and South America. Perhaps Australia plays in the Asia Division. At first no inter-region play until Playoffs. As woy said, perhaps the travel will not be advanced enough. (We are talking 100 years though, and flight has come a helluva long way in the last 100).
Most if not all ballparks will have retractable roofs for play during inclement weather.
A shorter regular season.. say 145 games due to expanded playoffs. Regional playoffs followed by inter-regional. then a World Series.
It took baseball until 1958 to play it's first home game on the west coast because travel times were prohibitive. That will not always be the case.
