With no baseball on the immediate horizon, some players are looking ahead to the 2021 World Baseball Classic.
MLB Network posted a video of Adam Jones' stunning catch from the 2017 WBC on Instagram, and several members of Team USA that year chimed in, saying they're ready to go after a second consecutive title.
New York Mets right-hander Marcus Stroman was one of the players leading the charge to recruit various standouts like San Diego Padres first baseman Eric Hosmer and Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich, both of whom were part of the championship squad in 2017.
Bellinger led the chorus of respondents:
March 22 will be the three-year anniversary of Team USA's victory over Puerto Rico. With spring games now canceled and with the 2020 regular season on hold, MLB Network will be showing World Baseball Classic footage from morning to night that culminates with a replay of Team USA's second-round victory over the Dominican Republic and its championship win versus Puerto Rico.
The 2021 edition of the World Baseball Classic is scheduled to take place March 9-23, with the field expanding from 16 to 20 teams. Games will be held in Taiwan, Japan, and the United States.
