USA or Canada? Crain’s call

With United States and Canada dual Citizenship, Minnesota Twins reliever Jesse Crain could face a tough decision before next spring.

Team Canada has received permission to make Crain join its team in World Baseball Classic 2006. But question is: Crain has played on Team USA with Twins catcher Joe Mauer in 2003. And if he decides to play for Canada, he would forfeit his Team USA eligibility in the future.

Crain’s parents are U.S. citizens; he was born while they were on a business trip to Toronto, lived in Canada for only three months.

Canada team has a potential starting rotation of Oakland Athletics Rich Harden, Colorado Rockies Jeff Francis and Baltimore Orioles Erik Bedard. Crain could join a bullpen with Chicago Cubs closer Ryan Dempster and Atlanta Braves closer Chris Reitsma.

Twins first baseman Justin Morneau, of British Columbia, Canada, understands it’s a tough choice for Crain and don’t want to put any pressure. “It’s up to him, if he plays for us, he’s got to want to play for us.” Morneau said.

Crain’s decision: U.S. or Canada
