Jupiter WBC Dates Established

The WBC for Jupiter, Florida that had been originally scheduled for November has been changed to September 19-23.  That date is good for Spain and France, who will just be completing the European championships, so their players should still be fresh from playing.  It will not be good for Israel, who may have had some hopes of using major leaguers Ryan Braun and Ian Kinsler, if they could have convinced them to play.  Now it is a moot point, since Braun and Kinsler will be focused on the major league schedule in September.  South Africa is the fourth team that will compete in the qualifier.
