B45 is well represented at the World Baseball Classic Qualifiers currently held in Panama, especially on Team France with the whole team swinging the Canadian bats.
"Les Bleus" are managed by former major league pitcher and B45 partner Éric Gagné, while other players and staff members are long-time B45 clients at different pro ball levels. Former Quebec Capitales (Can-Am League) players Maxime Lefevre and Rene Leveret are on the French active roster. Helping Gagné on the coaching staff are Capitales' ace Karl Gélinas (pitching coach) and former Capitales Ivan Naccarata (hitting coach), Luis Argumedes (bench coach), and Kevin Young (bullpen coach).
Team France will be playing its first game against Panama tonight at 9 PM ET.
