NPB hopes Japan will take part in 2013 World Baseball Classic

Japanese baseball owners on Thursday said they want Japan to participate in the 2013 World Baseball Classic.

“We’ve been having peaceful and cooperative talks with WBC organizers. For Nippon Professional Baseball, we want Japan to take part,” said Rakuten Eagles owner Toru Shimada.

Shimada headed a negotiating team representing Japan’s 12 pro club owners, who were seeking a bigger share of the profits from the WBC, during talks in October with Major League Baseball, the tournament’s organizer.

Japan has won the WBC both times it has been played. To have any credibility, the WBC needs Japan there in 2013, and I'm sure both sides realise that.

Broken record time!

Does anyone know when they qualifying groups and their host nations will be announced?
Or if they have been already.
