The Czech Republic Baseball Team, which will be representing that country in the World Baseball Classic, has a roster of players with different professions and occupations.all far from baseball, a discipline that they practice out of passion and with which they reached a historic classification to the great event of the specialty.
Among the players who are on the team, only one has experience in the Triple-A category and it is his catcher and team star, Martin Červenkaa player who, however, does not make a living from baseball and is dedicated to sales.
Professions of the players who will represent the Czech Republic in the World Baseball Classic
Among the opening team we can highlight that Petr Zýma, the team’s designated hitter, makes a living as a financial analystwhile Arnošt Dubový, center fielder of the Czech national team, is a professor of Geography. On the other hand we find Marek Minařík, who can play outfielder and starting pitcher and is into real estate. other launcher like Lukáš Ercoli, is media coordinator of the Federation of the Czech Republic.
We also got a firefighter like Martin Schneiderwho is the team’s shortstop. Matej Mensik, another gardener, earns a living as a Sport Manager and the third baseman Filip Smola, is an auditor. the other receiver, Daniel Vurvusa is an importer of baseball equipment and manager Pavel Chadim is a neurologist.
Another important fact has to do with this team, is that since 1952 they have not produced a player with experience in the Big Top. Even so, with a semi-professional team, they managed to be in the World Classic in 2023.
Expectations of the Czech Republic for the World Classic
The Czech Republic was paired in group B along with the ninth teams of Australia, Japan, China and Korea. The historic debut of those led by Pavel Chadim will be on March 9 against Australia at the Tokyo Dome. The Czechs know that they are not favorites but they understand that they were not favorites either, so they start with the premise of going to give it their all.
The classification was achieved after leaving behind a team like Spain, which unlike the Czechs did have a team of professional players.
