This is how WW3 starts…
A World Baseball Classic warmup game between the Cubans and Koreans was canceled today b/c the two teams couldn’t agree on what ball to use.
According to NC Dinos officials, the two sides had previously agreed that they would each pitch their own choice of the ball. But just before the match, Cuba demanded a ball by the U.S. brand Brett Bros. be used by both teams.
“The ball had thick and wide seams, and it posed injury risks for our pitchers,” one NC official said. “Then Cuba suggested we both play a Taiwanese ball. That ball also had big seams and we said we didn’t want to play it. Finally, Cubans brought out some mysterious ball, and again we told them we couldn’t play it.”
The official explained Cuba first asked the game be canceled, and the Dinos were more than happy to oblige.
Leave it to Cuba to introduce a “mysterious ball”… This is exactly how World Wars start and exactly why I am opposed to the globalization of any and all sports. Canada is fine.. they pose no risk to anyone. But now you get these hot heads from Korea involved and nukes are soon to follow. Nice work baseball… this apocalypse is on you.
