If Canada beats Mexico today, and if the U.S. beats South Africa on Friday, then the Canadians (3-0) and Americans (2-1) advance instead of Mexico (1-2) and South Africa (0-3).
But if Mexico and the U.S. win their final games, three teams would be 2-1.
The U.S. would be eliminated if Mexico beats Canada by a score of 2-0 or 2-1 or 1-0.
So in order for you to show your support for Team USA I have made a Stubby Clapp avatar that you can all wear.
In case you don't know Stubby, he is the regular second baseman for the Edmonton Cracker-cats of the Independent Northern Baseball League (best seats in the house only $10) and he is the heart and sould of Team Canada.
Let's Go Team USA! Let's Go Stubby!
