There's a reason the WBC organization awarded Asia 3 rounds of the tourney (2 in Japan, 1 in Taiwan) this time around, and the reason why Korea is building a dome stadium to keep hosting in Japan, Taiwan, and Korea for years.
That's about 30 million people. USA was probably second with less than 3 million people. I doubt a single Spanish-speaking country touched even one million people.

In the Olympics, you have USA with over 27 million and Canada with about 17 million.
