Sweden played host to the first ever international exhibition baseball match to be held at an Olympic Games. The players of the Vesteras Baseball Club represented their home nation in the game against a team composed of members of the United States Olympic delegation. In addition, three pitchers and a catcher were recruited from the American delegation to help fill the Swedish roster. Sweden did not succeed in qualifying during any of the years the sport was officially included in the Olympics, nor has it participated in any further baseball exhibitions at the Olympics since 1912.
