Cuba thinks several countries, and not just the United States, should organize the 2009 World Classic.

"We are firmly convinced that there should be a committee of participants and that that committee should choose a group to discuss the organization, the dates, the rules of elimination, the participants and everything else," Cuban Olympic Committee president Jose Ramon Fernandez said on Thursday.

Major League Baseball and its players' association jointly ran the first edition of the Classic last year, when Japan beat Cuba 10-6 in the final at San Diego.

While a final decision hasn't been made, it appears the second Classic will be played in March 2009. Fernandez, also one of Cuba's vice presidents, was "worried" about the 2009 tournament, saying it should be organized "in a spirit where all participants have a voice and a vote."
