WBSC Has Rewind of Last Olympic Gold Medal Game

You can watch the last Olympic Gold Medal baseball game that was played between Korea and Cuba that was played in Beijing, China back in 2008. There was enough interest in China that close to 10,000 attended the game. The starting pitcher for Korea was Hyu-Jin Ryu, who had just won the KBO Rookie of the year award. He is the same Ryu who pitched for the Dodgers and now the Blue Jays. The Cuba starter was Norberto Gonzales.

Go to wbsc.org to watch the game. Myworld went to Beijing a couple years after the game was played. They had already torn down the stadium and replaced it with a mall and a parking lot. There was some talk that they were also going to build a basketball venue at the site, but myworld could not confirm that.

That shows you what China thinks of baseball.
