Playing for Team Canada in WBC Means a Lot to Freddie Freeman

Mookie Betts, Will Smith, and Clayton Kershaw for Team USA. Julio Urias and Austin Barnes will represent Team Mexico, and second-year Dodger Freddie Freeman will represent Team Canada in the WBC.

Although Freeman was born and raised in Southern California, his parents were born in Canada and recently talked about why he continues to represent the Great White North.

How can you not like or respect Freddie Freeman?

That is a great way to continue representing your loved ones, and it’s a beautiful thing for Freddie.

Freeman first represented Team Canada in 2017 and will look to bring a gold medal to his parents’ country.

The 32-year-old will join Canadian infielders Eduoard Julien, Otto Lopez, Damiano Palmegiani, Abraham Toro, and Andy Yerzy. Many of these players aren’t top tiers like Team USA or Team Dominican Republic, but Freeman makes Team Canada no walk in the park.

According to, Team Canada has the 11th-best odds to win the WBC at +5000. Ahead of them is Team Mexico with the eighth-best odds at +3500, Team USA with the second-best odds at +225, and Dominican Republic with the best odds at +200.

We can’t wait to see Freddie don the red, white, and grey for Team Canada and wish the other Dodgers the best and come back healthy to the Dodgers.
