With the World Baseball Classic set to get underway when Pool A opens the tournament in Seoul, South Korea, on March 6, a number of Major League Baseball's best players provided some goodwill in anticipation of the event.

A group of the game's biggest stars, including Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve, Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Chris Archer, and Puerto Rican natives Francisco Lindor and Javier Baez were part of a goodwill tour of Puerto Rico on Friday, which included visiting local children to provide tutelage in the game of baseball.

The Puerto Rican team is expected to bring a strong unit to Estadio Charros de Jalisco in Mexico for Pool D play from March 9-13.
