With the WBC going on right now, the question is always brought up of injury. People from organized teams, including MLB teams take time away from spring training to play in high level tournament games, where they can get injured. Now many people dislike the classic for the reason of injuries. People are playing in international games that mean nothing to the regular season, risking injury in the process. Now this is a good argument, but there is a flaw in it. Yes these players are playing in games where they could get injured, but they would be doing the same thing back in camp. MLB players in the WBC leave camp while their teams are playing the exhibition games, to play international tournament games. Now I know that spring training games aren't taken very seriously, and most MLB players don't play all 9 innings, but they still risk injury. If someone hates the WBC only because of the injury risk, I urge them to rethink, because one no serious, season ending injuries occur frequently, and not a lot of MLB players participate. I believe it's up to the player at the end of the day if they want to risk injury, but you have to remember, they're risking injury on a day in and day out basis playing exhibition games, granted it's a lower risk.
