We have to make a business plan," Murillo was quoted as saying on the Solo Beisbol website. "They (MLB) have a series of requirements that are inspected and if they're not met, they sanction you."
The Mexicali organizing committee has emphasized the need to reduce the cost for tickets to games. The recently-concluded qualifier featured ducats ranging in price from 160 pesos (about US$9) for general admission up to 1,490 pesos (US$84) for premium Zona Oro seats. According to Murillo, "We won't bid on it if we can't get tickets that are more accessible than they are now...I think we should give some thought that it be an economically-grounded event."
Thus far, the Jalisco Charros have announced a bid to bring the WBC to Guadalajara while both Hermosillo and Monterrey have also being mentioned as potential pool play sites although no bids have been submitted for either city.
