Freeman was set to play for Canada

But does he know the lyrics to ” Let’s Go to the Mall” or the “Beaver Song”?

“LAKE BUENA VISTA, FLA. - How many national teams can boast having a suitable replacement for an MVP winner?

Had Joey Votto’s knee prevented him from playing in this month’s World Baseball Classic, Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman was ready and willing to wear the maple leaf.

“I told the players association to make sure they let the WBC know that both my parents were born in Canada,” Freeman said Thursday before the Washington Nationals met his Braves in a pre-season game at Champions Stadium.”

He would have been only the third best 1B on the team, while he would have been the best for the US.

No idea about his Canadian heritage. I still like him anyway.
