The 2017 World Baseball Classic gets underway on March 6. You can click here for the 2017 World Baseball Classic format, pool assignments, full TV schedule, and start times. After you do that, we can turn our attention to the not-yet-finalized rosters for the 16 teams who've qualified tournament pool play for 2017.
