USA Beats PR In World Baseball Final

Los Angeles (PRM) -- After an undefeated streak marked by some nerve-
wracking games, the Puerto Rican team fell to Team USA 8 to 0 in the to-
urnament final last night, missing its shot at Puerto Rico's first ever World
Baseball Classic championship. Puerto Rico also made it to the finals at
the last WBC in 2013, but was defeated that time by the Dominican Re-
public. The United States team had been beaten by Puerto Rico earlier
in this tournament, in the Pool F game on March 17th. The Boricua te-
am won that encounter 6-5. It then advanced to the semifinals, where it
defeated The Netherlands in another nailbiter, this one a 4 to 3, 11 inn-
ing game this past Monday night.

The Puerto Rican team, which gained notoriety not just for its perform-
ance, but also for its signature blond-dyed hair, will nonetheless receive
a hero's welcome in San Juan  later this morning. The team is expected
to arrive at Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport at around 11:00 AM
local time. They will then lead a caravan from the airport to the Conven-
tion Center in Miramar, where a celebration will take place from 1:00 to
7:00 PM. WIPR TV will broadcast the event.
