When it comes to sports history, no sport has a history quite like baseball. Great players from the early 1900's are still known by all baseball fans today, great moments still talked about and records still be broken. People in the U.S. are most familiar with Major League Baseball, which was founded in 1876, but as the years have past, baseball leagues have continued to emerge around the world. Baseball has long been referred to as "America's Pastime", has become the world's game.
And that is evident, whenever you buy a ticket to see a baseball game. Players from around the world fill the rosters of Major League teams, and will continue to for as long as the game goes on. Baseball has recently capitalized on the growing popularity of the sport around the world with the implementation of the World Baseball Classic, or WBC. Teams representing countries battle it out to see whose country has the best players. Though still in its infancy, the WBC is becoming a popular event among baseball purists.

On Tuesday, March 12, the United States, Dominican Republic, Italy, and Puerto Rico will represent their countries at Miami's Marlins Park. The winner and runner-up will advance to the championship round on Sunday.
The New York Yankees have partnered with TicketMaster to create a resale network where fans can buy and sell their tickets.
Broadway producers from the Kirmser Ponturo Group recently announced plans for a new, still untitled play that will focus on the history of Major League Baseball's most famous team. The New York Yankees and the MLB organization are partnering with producers, and the Kirmser Ponturo Group hope to have the play ready to hit the Great White Way by late next year.
In regards to the upcoming play and the Yankees' collaboration Bloomberg reports that Lonn Trost, the team's Chief Operations Officer, said, "It is a thrill that two iconic American institutions, the Yankees and the Broadway theater, are joining together. Just as generations of fans have been captivated in their seats at Yankee Stadium, theatergoers will be able to experience the same drama and joy. We look forward to opening our archives to the process and sharing our stories."
In a move being described as a means to ensure fans are the ones purchasing and using their season tickets, the Chicago Cubs have announced that the club will be revoking nearly 1,000 season tickets from about 40 customers following allegations that those individuals were scalping their tickets.
With a waiting list of nearly 115,000, Chicago Cubs season tickets remain some of the most sought after tickets, despite the team's failure to win a World Series since 1908 and the team's dismal finish to the 2012 baseball season, which saw the Cubs possess the second worst record in all of baseball. The Cubs may be known as the "Loveable Losers," but tickets to individual games routinely sell out and are routinely resold on the secondary market.
