The national baseball team of the Philippines represents the country and competes in international matches and tournaments. It is organized by the Philippine Amateur Baseball Association.

They were the inaugural champions of the Asian Baseball Championships in 1954 but finished fourth in seven of the next eight editions of the biennial events.

Since their last fourth place finish in 1973, the national team has struggled in competing against top level Asian clubs such as Japan, Chinese Taipei, and Korea, among others.

They have recently participated in the 2006 Intercontinental Cup, and the 2006 Asian Games. They won the gold medal at the 2005 Southeast Asian Games when they hosted the biennial meet.
