Baseball at the Pan American Games

Baseball at the Pan American Games

The baseball tournament at the Pan American Games has long been considered to be one of the premier international baseball events in the world, even higher than the Olympic Games. This is because the level of competition is higher than in the Olympics, 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 will compete in each tournament respectively.[1]
