Congrats to the Dominican Republic: The 2013 World Baseball Classic Champions!

Jonathan Hacohen  (Lead Baseball Columnist, Oakland A’s Correspondent and Website Founder):  

After the initial WBC in 2006, the tournament returned in 2009.  The decision was made to have the WBC played three years after the inaugural edition and then four years later from there.  

As result, after a long wait for baseball fans…the third World Baseball Classic was back for the 3rd edition in 2013.

 It was a thrilling March- with the final 2 countries facing off for global baseball supremacy:  The Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.  The DR won the game 3-0 behind the MVP bat of Robinson Cano.  

Congrats to the Dominican Republic on being crowned the 2013 WBC Champions!

Gerardo Parra is an underrated player.

Gerardo Parra has a Career 3 Slash Line of .280/.332/732.  He is an exceptional defender.  He won a Gold Glove in 2011.  He hits best at Chase Field – with a 3 Slash Line of .300/.353/.804.

By Chris Lacey (Diamond Backs Correspondent)

Gerardo Parra was signed by the Arizona Diamondbacks as an amateur free agent in 2004. Parra received the call up to the show on May 13, 2009 from Double AA Mobile Baybears when Left Fielder Conor Jackson was placed on the disabled list. He was put into the starting lineup the same day, and in his first Major League  At-Bat,  he became the 100th player in MLB history to hit a Home Run in his first at bat. Parra recorded at least one RBI, in his first five games, by doing this he became the second player since Mike Lansing (1993) in the last thirty years to accomplish this feat.

He was also named NL Rookie of the Month for May and reached base in each of his first 17 games. Parra broke out in 2011 by hitting with a .292 Batting Average, 8 Home Runs, and 46 RBI. He also showed that he could a defensive weapon with his powerful arm by throwing out runners on various occasions; he recorded 12 Outfield Assists in 2011. He capped off this stellar year by winning the Gold Glove in the National League for Left Field.

A      berts ball 1

By Chuck Booth (Lead Baseball Analyst/Website Owner):

All of us hardcore fans have seen the MLB Fan Cave for the last few years.  Heck, if it wasn’t for the MLB accepting applications for the Season 1 – I personally would have never joined Twitter, interacted with winners Mike O’ Hara and Ryan, before eventually meeting the MLB Reports Founder (Jonathan Hacohen) through conversing with those guys over my baseball travel book.  Jonathan did a book review for me, then asked me to guest blog for him during the 2012 World Series.  1 year and half later, I bought the website, meanwhile our site has continued a friendship with the Cave Dwellers from the 1st 2 seasons.  Last year, we interviewed Eddie Mata – and did a follow up story with Mike O ‘ Hara on life after the Cave.

A few months ago, I came across a genuine fan of the LA Dodgers and baseball in general.  Thomas (Aaron) Roberts has since been our Dodgers Correspondent here.  I can tell you that the man loves baseball and anything to do with it.  I never even knew he applied for the MLB Fan Cave in 2013, then last week he sent me a link that he was a top 52 finalist. 

This is no small feat and any of us would love to be in Roberts shoes.  I will do anything within my power to help him along, because he is a deserving person to be sent to New York.  Just by watching his video entry, it is abundantly clear that he belongs at the Fan Cave.  So please click the link and then after viewing, read the interview I conducted with Thomas (Aaron) Roberts afterwards.
