The revenues go back to all the baseball and they don't have to deal with the vulgar and perfidious IOC (the corrupt ******** who snubbed baseball, and recently cut wrestling).
A growth from 0 to 1 is technically "growing", but the WBC is still incredibly irrelevant. The only mentions of it I have heard in American media so far has been along the lines of "ugh, (insert player here) has to play in the WBC instead of training with the team, what a stupid tournament" or mentions of players skipping the tournament altogether to much praise.
I guess they make enough money in Japan to keep the tournament afloat, because I'm not sure how they can possibly be making any money off of the Americas. The U.S. doesn't care, and Central America is poor.
