Baseball at the Pan American Games

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The baseball tournament at the Pan American Games has long been considered to be one of the premier international baseball events in the world,[citation needed] even higher than the Olympic Games. This is because the level of competition is higher than in the Olympics,[citation needed] where only two teams from the Americas traditionally were permitted to qualify. Cuba has dominated the tournament since its inception. In 2013 a women's tournament was added to the program.[1] A total of seven men and five women's teams compete in each tournament respectively.[1]
