Here’s the latest WBC news as of March 1, 2016:
Team Germany will play exhibition games against three different Mexican League teams, as well as a team from the Brewers organization.
“Samurai Japan” has teamed up with the Anime series Mr. Osomatsu to help raise awareness for the team, both in the WBC and in other tournaments (where they generally don’t draw as well).
News on who will and will not be in the WBC qualifiers:
First off, the Mexican League will be allowing their players to play for Team Mexico.
Jose Quinanta of the White Sox is in for Colombia.
The official rosters apparently come out tomorrow, so that’s something to keep an eye out for.
