The post-game press conference of the WBSC U-23 Baseball World Cup is available on demand.

Colombia's manager Jose Mosquera said during the WBSC post-game press conference that going back to Colombia with a bronze medal is "an honour" and a "gift" for his family.

Mosquera's grandfather Armando Crisson was a member of the Colombian team that won on home soil the 1947 Amateur World Series, the tournament that would later evolve into the Baseball World Cup-

Mosquera spoke about the semifinal against Mexico.

"We wanted to be in the final, but as soon as it was over, we told the players we needed to go forward."

Mosquera also gave credit to Cuba.
"They are an amazing team, and we have a lot of respect for them."

Mosquera said he was worried because of the tiredness of his bullpen.
"We still tried to manage the teams according to the matchups," he said.

Mosquera also explained that the most complicated task of a manager at this age level is to keep the players focused on the goal.
"You have to be like their father."

Mosquera also spoke about the difference between professional baseball and international baseball.
