World Baseball Classic Qualifier 3: Preview

panamaOn March 17 the third qualifier of the World Baseball Classic will start. Panama will host Columbia, France and Spain during this four day event.

The stadium where this four day event will be played is Rod Carew Stadium, which served as stadium for the 2011 World Cup final which was won by the Netherlands. Also the 2012 Qualifiers were played in this stadium as Brazil surprisingly  beat Panama 1-0 in the final. The stadium’s official name is Estadio Nacional de Panamá. The stadium was constructed in 1999 and has a capacity of 27,000. Shortly before the Qualifiers start, the Yankees and the Marlins are scheduled to play two exhibition games at the stadium.
