The World Baseball Classic is a big deal for my family. Arenado, who is American, was born to a Puerto Rican mother and a Cuban father. When Cuba made the inaugural final against Japan in 2006, it was Nolan Arenado Authentic Jersey a big deal in the Arenado house. Nolan was just 14 at the time. "My dad was born in Cuba, and my mother's family is Puerto Rican," he wrote. "But my parents are both extremely proud to be American citizens, and they raised me to take pride in being from this country. I grew up in Southern California, not too far from Dodger Stadium. And my entire family loves baseball." In a http://www.officialrockieshop.com/authentic-28-nolan-arenado-jersey.html lot of ways, Arenado has been waiting more than a decade for this moment. Arenado, the Rockies' perennial National League MVP Award candidate, details this memory and more in an article entitled, "Why The World Baseball Classic is Awesome," published Thursday -- a day before Arenado and Team USA begin pool play against Colombia at Marlins Park in Miami (6 p.m. ET, live on MLB.TV and MLB Network). Arenado is amped up about representing his country for the first time, and he will play a major role for an American squad looking to advance past the second round for the first time in their World Baseball Classic history. Arenado Authentic Nolan Arenado Womens Jersey has led the NL in home runs, RBIs and total bases while winning Gold Glove Awards and Silver Slugger Awards at third base in each of the past two seasons. He'll anchor an infield that includes fellow All-Stars Brandon Crawford, Ian Kinsler, Daniel Murphy, Eric Hosmer and Paul Goldschmidt. "This is going to be a blast," Arenado said. "And I plan to enjoy every minute of it. This tournament is going to be special for me." In the first game of the series, we were tied 1–1 early on and things seemed to be going O.K. But then Posey drove in a run to break the tie. Two innings later, he hits http://www.officialrockieshop.com/authentic-28-nolan-arenado-jersey.html a bomb and after that things just snowballed. In the eighth, Brandon Crawford tripled in two runs. It was his second triple of the night. Dude had four hits that game. We lost 12–3.So much for that sweep. Arenado is most excited about representing his country, but he's also looking forward to playing alongside regular-season rivals like Crawford and Buster Posey. "They're still on the Giants. And, as a Colorado Rockie through and through, I still don't like the Giants at all. But now those dudes are my brothers," Arenado wrote. "Welcome to the 2017 World Baseball Classic."
