The venues for next year's inaugural World Baseball Classic were settled on Wednesday when it was announced that six first-round games have been scheduled for Cracker Jack Stadium at Disney Wide World of Sports in the Orlando area on March 8-11.

The other first-round pools are scheduled for the Tokyo Dome (March 3-6), Hiram Bithorn Stadium in San Juan, P.R., and Chase Field [formerly Bank One] and Scottsdale Stadium in the Phoenix area. Both the latter pools will be played concurrently with the pool in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

The second round runs from on March 13-15 in Puerto Rico and Angel Stadium in Anaheim, with the semifinals and finals at San Diego's PETCO Park from March 18-20.

Host stadiums for the WBC tournament have been finalized.

Also, in other international baseball news, congrats to USA, Canada, Nicaragua, and Panama who are advancing to the Americas Qualifying Tournament next August to compete for at least 2 Olympic spots (website).

I use Loc Look to edit feeng.loc and igeng.loc to change team names in the game. It can be downloaded here.

I also edit the names and team abbreviations in team.dat and tstat.dat in notepad or textpad then re-import the files in MVPEdit, but it's the loc files that affect the game.

Be sure to make backups before editing.

Is anybody having problems downloading this file? I have tried numerous times and can't get it download. It ends without completing.

I was just wondering when more teams are going to be added to the mod. So far its awesome.

Thanksgiving week was a bit crazier than expected so I'm a little behind schedule. Japan is next on the list for rosters. Been mostly gathering information at this point and working on some of the logos for upcoming teams. I'm hoping for a release during the week of the 19th that will add Japan and have a surprise or two. If I get enough done this weekend, I hope to post a few previews next week.

I just found out that Dave Nilsson will be playing next year, so the starting infield for Australia should be...

C - Nilsson

1B - Huber

2B - Durrington

SS - van Buizen

3B - G Williams

DH - Kingman

For space for Nilsson, replace D'Antonio.

Thanks for the heads up on Nilsson, wedss. I was hoping he'd play. I'll add him to the list of roster changes for the next update. Looks like Italy will have an interesting roster.

Gige56, great work with the portraits. Anything you can do to help is appreciated. You can post here or PM me with any questions.

As promised, a few previews of some upcoming updates. At this point, only the loc file and some logo work is done. I'll be starting on the roster work over the weekend.

The plan at this point is for the WBC teams and a few other baseball world cup countries to occupy the major league level. Some more developing baseball countries (if & when I get to them) will be in AAA or AA. Class A will have ten all time national teams and 20 past Olympic teams (4 semi-finalists from 1984, 1988, 1992, 1996 & 2000).

Maybe for some country, it's not necessary to totally follow the true rosters, because some occupational teams won't let some top players join WBC for many reasons. Maybe you should add some top players who can't join, based on true rosters.

kennyess, thanks for the heads up on the Japanese roster. Very interesting that Hideki Matsui and Kenji Jojima aren't on it. 60 man rosters are due in a month, so hopefully they will be on the roster by then.

cornny, no worries there. The AAA slots of the WBC participants (at least the top 12) will have backups (26-30 on the WBC roster), notable exclusions, other players from the 60 man pre-roster, etc. The downloader can decide whether to follow the WBC roster as released or make some changes and guide their idea of their country's dream team to international baseball glory.

there's also a bunch of guys who bowed out of the WBC due to injury/other reasons (i.e. Roy Halladay-injury rehab and Alex Rodriguez-personal)

especially if USA loses -- oh man, it's USA losing in basketball at the olympics.

i also think your going to see alot more pride and determination from all the players.

Italy is one of the teams I have a (less than) minimum lineup laid out for at this point based on the WBC site roster list.

SP - Grilli and Fiore

RP - Gallo and Mantei

C - Piazza, Mirabelli, DiFelice

IF - Vitiello, Menechino, Scutaro, DeRosa

OF - Catalanotto, Dellucci, Pascucci, Zoccolillo

Marco Scutaro is supposedly leaning toward Venezuela though at this point I have him as Italy's starting shortstop. Tough decision for him - play 3 full games for Italy and go back to his team's camp or ride the bench for Venezuela and have a good chance to win it all.

Ok thanks for the update. I just wanted to know if I could play as Italy. I wish more players joined. They could have had Zito but he went to go play for USA.
