Hell, spring training games probably get better ratings.
The two tourneys overlaps only overlap be a few days, which is why I said the first half of March, the WBC starts as early as March 2nd. Conference tourneys don't come close to affecting the WBC's finances. If people would rather watch someone ST baseball then I feel bad for them, the baseball in the WBC is alot better.
In fact the WBC is alot like IIHF events where they don't have to rely on Americans watching to earn a profit.
