International competition hits Fan Cave for Classic

Proof that there are at least 16 other people in the world who are even more interested in the WBC than I am.

Just 45 blocks downtown from the United Nations, Major League Baseball on Wednesday introduced winners of a competition for “MLB Fan Cave: World Baseball Classic Edition.” These 16 Cave Dwellers traveled from five continents and speak eight total languages. They will watch every game of the Classic live at all hours of the day and night, each gradually getting eliminated when his or her country/territory is ousted from play.

The winners are Nic Connell (Australia), Pedro Carvalho (Brazil), Daryl Andrews (Canada), Yuning (Vivia) Wang (China), Chi-En (Adam) Wang (Chinese Taipei), Damaso Rosales (Cuba), Juan Sarmiento (Dominican Republic), Periluigi Mandoi (Italy), Kozo (Toshi) Sasa (Japan), Soo Yeon Seo (Korea), Mariana Patraca Dibildox (Mexico), Julia Bol (The Netherlands), Raul Rivera (Puerto Rico), Josep Juaneda Josa (Spain), Kelsey Shea (USA) and Tibaldo Hernandez (Venezuela).

“The World Baseball Classic is a logical extension of the Fan Cave, which has been enormously successful in generating entertaining baseball content for social media,” said Tim Brosnan, MLB executive vice president of business. “So much has changed in the media landscape since 2009, the last time we held a World Baseball Classic. The Fan Cave’s ability to show a different side of baseball and the players to fans around the world instantaneously is perfectly suited for the World Baseball Classic in a rapidly changing media environment.”

“The World Baseball Classic is a logical extension of the Fan Cave, which has been enormously successful in generating entertaining baseball content for social media,” said Tim Brosnan.


But how much bandwidth does to it have to empower others to reach out and strategize new world-class paradigms or leverage the impact of low-hanging fruit at the end of the day?
