It represented the former nation in senior-level men's international competition. The team is still a member of the Pan American Baseball Confederation (Confederación Panamericana de Béisbol in Spanish, and abbreviated to "COPABE"), and is ranked 10th among teams from the confederation, and 22nd in the world according to the International Baseball Federation (IBAF).[1]

The Netherlands Antilles have been represented—distinct from the Netherlands—in twelve Baseball World Cups. To date their highest finish is 7th place.[2]
