Pool B of the First Round of the 2009 World Baseball Classic was held at Foro Sol, Mexico City, Mexico from March 8 to 12, 2009.

Pool B was a double-elimination tournament. The winners for the first games matched up in the second game, while the losers faced each other in an elimination game. The winner of the elimination game then played the loser of the non-elimination game in another elimination game. The remaining two teams then played each other to determine seeding for the Pool 1.
