Thanks for the heads up, alvaron.

Most of the information out on the Classic so far is quite biased toward filling rosters with MLB and MLB affiliated players. Alex Cabrera will be a great fit to a Venezuelan squad that lacks a true 1B from picks available here in the States. I'll start working on him and I'll need to figure out a numbering system for the portraits to be added. Another Venezuelan with good numbers in Japan is Alex Ramirez from the Yakult Swallows (.282, 32 HR, 104 RBI)

So far, there are 11 pitchers

Victor Martinez and Ramon Hernandez are at Catcher

OF (CF play): Abreu (not since 02, athletic enough to play it), Miguel Cabrera (0 career games), Hidalgo (3 games in 05, 361 career), Ordonez (not since 03) & Juan Rivera (4 games in 05, 13 in 2004)

IF: Guillen (3B/SS), Vizquel (SS), Alfonzo (3B/IF), Cesar Izturis (SS/2B), Tomas Perez (2B/IF)

UTIL rating: Melvin Mora, Miguel Cairo

2 questions for those who know much about either of the Alex's in Japan:

Which position player gets left off a 25 man roster with Alex Cabrera on it?

Does Alex Ramirez displace someone, and if so, maintain enough depth at all positions?

1) In the MVP baseball game i put Alex Cabrera and released Miguel Cairo..

But in the World Cup they are going to be 30 players with ALEX CABRERA including.

2) AND in the Game i Put Alex Ramirez and released Richard Hidalgo.

Thanks everyone for the kind words, helpful suggestions, and offers of help with mods.

ncaapitcher, a beta version with just rosters and logos can be downloaded here.

OK, Team Mexico. Here's what I'm looking at right now:

Note: Players that aren't in Ultimate Rosters are italicized.

Pitchers: Oliver Perez, E. Loaiza, Elmer Dessens, Rodrigo Lopez, Ismael Valdez, J. De La Rosa, Rigo Beltran, Luis Ayala, R. Rincon, D. Reyes, Antonio Osuna

Catchers - 2 or 3 of these choices: Miguel Ojeda, Rod Barajas (i think he's a dual citizen), Humberto Cota, Geronimo Gil

Infield: Guillermo Velasquez (can he still play OF?), Jorge Cantu, Vinny Castilla, A. Amezaga, E. Durazo, Juan Castro, Adrian Gonzalez (dual citizen, can play RF as well)

Outfield: Mario Valenzuela, Luis Garcia (one with Balt in 2002, not the one in Norfolk earlier this year & in UR), Karim Garcia

Some other possibilities: Oscar Robles (LA), Francisco Campos, Javier Robles, Jorge Campillo, David Cortes, Edgar Gonzalez (P)

I guess start suggesting changes to the preliminary 25 (particularly any additional players in Mexico or Japan that would make the team) and adjustments can be made closer to tourney time.

The last I heard, Alex Rodriguez has decided to play for the Dominican team, despite being born in New York City and growing up here. That's some great loyalty, Alex.

I'm looking forward to downloading this as it progresses, and once they announce a final list of stadiums, I may work on getting those up in the game. If nothing else, i'd love to have Koshien in MVP.


Apparently, the Japanese games will take place at the Tokyo Dome, while the South American ones will take place at Hiram Birthorn, so we will probably have every stadium but the Japanese one.

For the team Mexico:

Definitly Barajas and Adrian Gonzalez are nopt being considered for the team.

Right now the Mexican League had announced that manager Francisco "Paquin" Estrada is the favorite for being the manager for Mexico.

Francisco Campos has been selected as Mexican League Pitcher of the year and I'm pretty sure he's going to be on the team. He has over 1000 strikeouts in his career. Here are his stats for the last season


Javier Robles is th Mexican League Player of the Year. Hes a veteran SS, last season he hity for .392 avg. His stats:


In the same page are the statics of Guillermo Velazquez (he only plays at 1B now) and Matias Carrillo, a veteran RF and fan favorite that is very probable that hes going to the tournament.

karim Garcia played last year in Japan, so you can fin his stats on the japanese league page

Rigo Beltran has been struggling for the last years, I dont think hes going to be on the team.

Victor Alvarez is mexican and hes on the UR 3.14 on the FA, same as Benji Gil and Juan Acevedo.

Oscar Villareal (arizona) is a good young pitcher and may be on the team.

I also found this article (in spanish), its an interview with Jose Contreras and he says he wants to play for the Cuban team (if they decide to go)


Roberto Kelly is the Manager for the Panama team. Tony Peña is the manager for the Dominican team, he already has a face in MVP. Luis Sojo is going to be in charge of the Venezuela team.
