Yankee Stadium

US Cellular Field

Dodger Stadium

Minute Maid Park

Turner Field

Safeco Field

but if it were to be played in February or March, I choose these cities

Minute Maid Park

Turner Field

It sounds like they're planning on playing it in the spring. There'd be locales in different parts of the world. In the US, Bank One Ballpark is the only one I'm sure is a strong candidate. Good weather, retractable roof if it should rain, a bunch of ballplayers already in town for the Cactus League.

Who wants to fly into Phoenix though?

I'm just saying that it would be more appealing to have it in a more renounced city like New York, Chicago or Los Angeles. You know, true baseball cities!

Who really cares? We're not comparing the Diamondbacks to the Yankees and even if we were the Yankees outweigh the Diamondbacks by far. New York just has more of a international appeal than Phoenix. Now I'm assuming you're from the Phoenix area so it's probably your biased opinion that Phoenix should be considered first but let's get real.

Are we talking about a host city that would host this event a majority of the time within the U.S.?

Why not have it one in NY, one in Atlanta, one in SF, one in Seattle, and one in Kansas City?

They aren't big baseball cities, and weather ain't always perfect for all of them..but it shows a certain regional flavor for each that would really show what america is..especially with all those Japanese tourists.

Well it's kind of a question like "Would you rather hold the World's Fair in the world famous NYC or Phoenix a city that's out in the middle of the desert and doesn't have much international appeal". The choice is quite obvious to me and I would assume it would be for the rest of the world. I'm not knocking down Phoenix because I happen to like the city but I have to get real.

Well a baseball tournament in New York in February/March would be just plain stupid.

Unless you like baseball in the snow.

I'm thinking it would be a World Cup of Hockey type scenerio, with two pools... games at the two Japanese Domes, and games at Dodger Stadium/SBC Park.

True but that's if they are played then.

Assuming it's going to be played in North America, I think spring is the only time that makes sense. If you do it in the summer you're interrupting the regular season. If you do it in the fall, you're interrupting the playoffs or, at best, you're gonna have most of the players fatigued/injured/ready for vacation, in which event you won't get any turnout. If you want to do it in the winter time you'd have to do it in domes or warm weather cities only.

If and when it happens, the World Cup of Baseball would need to be a springtime event. And that makes PHX a natural locale, for all the reasons I stated above. I'm not saying it's the most cosmopolitan city in the world, but for these purposes it makes a ton of sense. Besides, as a Diamondbacks season ticket holder (oh, joy) I'd prolly get first dibs on tickets. :D
