*-Alert reader Kyle from Brew Crew Ball points out that Israel, Nicaragua, & Colombia did not make the field of 16 for the 2013 WBC.  But, as I pointed out in the comments.  I had those pictures and I was going to use those pictures.  Plus, as I did not point out in the comments, any time I can mention Marwin Vega…I am going to mention Marwin Vega.

UPDATE TWO: The Australian Baseball Digest was confused by the addition of Mike Walker to Australia, too.  His mother is Australian.  That makes him eligible for Team Australia.

FYI – Nicaragua, Colombia and Israel didn’t actually make the field of 16.

Eh. Don’t care. I had the pictures. Going to use them
