Black baseball will be displayed around the globe during the 2023 World Baseball Classic.  In addition to superstars Mookie Betts, Cedric Mullins and Tim Anderson, who will be playing for Team USA and the legendary Ken Griffey Jr. who will serve as the team’s hitting coach, we have some Bros that will be repping other countries.

Jazz Chisholm Jr. “Bahamian Blur”

Despite a back injury putting an early end to his 2022 season, Jazz Music will be heard around the world during the World Baseball Classic. Chisholm, who was born in the Bahamas (a former British colony) will be playing for Team Great Britain for the second time since 2017.


MLBbro Jazz Chisolm Will Be Showing Off All That Swag In This Year’s All-Star Game


Before a stress fracture in his back basically ended his season before July, Chisholm was a strong candidate to start at second for the National League in the All-Star Game, and maybe even earn himself a few MVP votes.



He led Miami in almost every offensive statistic and yet there was a point this season where his teammates thought his flashy outfits and bat flips were too much of a distraction. A few weeks ago, it came out that Chisholm had surgery to repair a torn meniscus he suffered back in Spring Training, meaning he was one of the top 10 players in baseball on just one leg.

Marcus Stroman

In the championship game of the last World Baseball Classic Marcus Stroman went six no hit innings to lead Team USA to an 8-0 win over Puerto Rico. 



This time he will still be rocking red, white and blue, but this time it will be for the same Puerto Rico team he dominated. Stroman, who has a 2.50 ERA in his last six starts this season was named the Most Valuable Player last WBC after throwing 15.1 innings and finishing with a 2.35 ERA. He will be joining one of the best teams in the tournament from top to bottom and be managed by future Hall of Famer Yadier Molina, who is retiring after this season.

LaTroy Hawkins

LaTroy Hawkins who pitched 21 seasons as a Major League reliever will be a coach for Team Brazil in this year’s Classic. Hawkins finished his career with a 4.31 ERA and pitched for Team USA back in the 2009 WBC.



He was a coach for Brazil during 2017 along with Hall of Famer Barry Larkin.


Hawkins who is now a color commentator for the Minnesota Twins has hosted and coached in Baseball camps held in the country and will serve as their pitching coach.
