Some Global World Series Roadblocks

by on Jan.10, 2010 @ 4:05 pm, under Other

Sponichi posted an article listing a few roadblocks that would have to be cleared if any sort of Global World Series is to be played.

They include:

Finances - how will the event be funded

Player contracts - the MLB would likely have to delay free agency if the GWS were to take place after the World Series

Venue - where to play the games

Timing - when to play the games

Baseballs - similar to the problems with the WBC, the two leagues use different kinds of balls (this is likely more a problem that Japan needs to deal with)
