We are now less than a week away from the start of the World Baseball Classic.
This legendary MLB-hosted event, which was first held in 2006, will feature some of the biggest and brightest stars in all of baseball as they suit up for their respective countries and prepare to do battle to determine which country has the most elite talent.
Several players will be leaving their spring training camps and joining with their WBC teams very soon.
On Twitter, the official account for the WBC posted a reminder to fans to get them hyped up for the return of this legendary event.

The Classic typically takes place every four years.
After Team USA won the title in 2017, the Classic was set to return in 2021.
However, it was ultimately cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
But with the pandemic waning, it’s time for the Classic to return for the first time in six years.
While there is already enough excitement surrounding the start of spring training and Opening Day, the excitement is certainly palpable for the WBC.
This classic tournament brings out the best in players who want to represent their countries well and win a title.
Team USA once again has a stacked roster this spring.
Stars such as Mike Trout, Pete Alonso, Nolan Arenado, Paul Goldschmidt, Trea Turner, and Cedric Mullins are on the roster this year.
Team USA will look to have a repeat performance from 2017 and defend their title while others seek to unseat them at the top.NEXT: A Top Mets Prospect Continues To Rake This Spring
