Should Major League Players Participate in the World Baseball Classic? — Sports Survey of the Day?

The 2013 World Baseball Classic gets underway this weekend, and while it isn’t as popular as some of the other global sporting events, it’s gaining ground. So is it important to you to see your country well represented?

Many players elect not to participate in the WBC, which has only been around since 2005. Teams don’t necessarily want to risk their players getting injured so close to the regular Major League Baseball season.

However, some players love to take the opportunity to represent their country, like New York Mets infielder David Wright, for example. The WBC is also a good opportunity for countries to show off some of their otherwise-unseen talent to the rest of the world.
