"The Game" - Panama vs. USA Tonight - Baseball World Cup

Sports Section #Panama - By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - Tonight's game between Panama and the United States promises to be one of the highlights of the 2011 Baseball World Cup, the 39th meeting of the International Baseball Federation. Right now Panama is one of the last two undefeated teams in Group A. They've already won five games; beating Greece (8-3), Chinese Taipei (14-8), Puerto Rico (4-2), Japan (6-2), and Canada (12-3). The United States has three wins; beating Chinese Taipei (15-1), Japan (7-3), and Greece (3-0), but they also lost to Puerto Rico (4-8), and the Netherlands (5-7). With this game being played on a Saturday night, no doubt the stadium will be packed. The game will be played at the Rod Carew stadium in Panama City, with a game start time of 7:30 pm. Tickets are cheap - like $5 bucks or something. To get to the stadium, take the Northern Corridor and then turn towards "Cerro Patacon" and the road that leads to the Centennial Bridge. The stadium is located just over the hill after you leave the Norther Corridor. Expect traffic jams and tight parking at the stadium, but just go with the flow and follow everyone else, and you should not have a problem. You might want to get out there relatively early, to park, get your seats, etc. Panamanians are never early for anything, so you can avoid most of the craziness by just being a little early. There will be excellent security inside the stadium, but you might not want to leave any valuables in the car. Anyway, enjoy the game. I might put together a group of dudes and head over there. Sounds like fun. Panama has a lot of "national pride" riding on this game. They most certainly don't want to lose their "undefeated" status to the United States team. They'll be pumped up for this one.

Don,
I just spoke with members of the US team and they tell me that the make up game for last nights rain-out will be Monday at 2pm...now, the last time we got rained out against Japan..the make-up wasn't listed anywhere..no one knew about it..consequently, few people showed up. This morning's LaPrensa said nothing about a make up..but the US guys said they will play Monday at 2pm..So, someone be sure and tell the Panamanian team..
See you there...
