4 games Red Sox fans can't miss during the World Baseball Classic
March 11th: Colombia @ Mexico, Pheonix, Arizona
The matchup between Colombia and Mexico will feature several Red Sox players. Team Colombia features Red Sox catcher Jorge Alfaro and pitcher Rio Gomez. Alfaro has been a Red Sox fan favorite this spring, fueled by his resemblance to Hollywood's Aquaman (Jason Momoa). Fans can catch the Justice Leaguer do battle against Mexico in this matchup, but it is worth noting that he is not expected to be the team's primary catcher.
Team Mexico features Red Sox outfielders Alex Verdugo and Jarren Duran. Both players have had a nice start to spring training and will look to carry this over to the WBC. Red Sox manager Alex Cora gave "homework" to all the Red Sox WBC participants to create a presentation about their country. Verdugo and Duran took the prize after they brought a Mariachi band to their presentation.
