  • Argentina, Chile and Curazao are joining the 2018 Latin American Series.
    Source in Spanish: http://www.lalenguacaribe.co/serie-l...-para-el-2018/

    Curazao was expected to join last year, but I guess their League wasn't ready. Argentina is starting a new national league in the Fall. It is great to see the Latin American Series trying to grow, but I will take this news of expansion with a grain of salt. Another article also mentions that Brazil & El Salvador are also interested in joining the event.

        • Didn't know where to put this. I know it is more for the Amateur Baseball thread but considering the Netherlands won this tournament, I figured it would be appropriate to comment here at this. A team from the Netherlands won the Colt (Pony League) Division World Series. I believe all of these kids are not from Curacao!

          • WBSC reveals Tokyo 2020 Olympic Qualifiers for Baseball, Softball

            ROAD TO TOKYO 2020 – BASEBALL

            The first opportunity to advance to the Olympic Baseball medal event at Tokyo 2020 will be the WBSC flagship Premier12® in November 2019, where two Olympic spots will be awarded. The Premier12’s top finisher from the Americas and the top finisher from Asia/Oceania (excluding Japan) will earn direct entries into Tokyo 2020 without having to pass through Qualifiers. The Top 12 (“Premier12”) nations in the final 2018 WBSC Baseball World Rankings will compete in this top-tier, elite global battle.

            Africa/Europe Qualifier

            The Africa/Europe qualification event will be a six-team tournament, with the winner earning a place at Tokyo 2020. Competing in this Qualifier will be top five finishers from the European Baseball Championship 2019 and the winner of the African Baseball Championship/Qualifier 2019.

            Americas Qualifier

            The Americas Olympic qualifier, where the winner will advance to Tokyo 2020, will be an eight-team tournament, bringing together all Americas representatives from the WBSC Premier12 2019 that did not qualify for Tokyo 2020. Currently, there are seven nations from the Americas in the Top 12 (Premier12) of the WBSC Baseball World Rankings. The top finisher(s) from the Pan American Games Lima 2019 would complete the eight-team field.

            Intercontinental Qualifier

            The final Olympic Baseball qualifier will be a six-team world tournament for the last remaining place at Tokyo 2020. Participants will include:
            • 2nd Place finisher from the Africa/Europe Qualifier
            • 2nd and 3rd Place finishers from the Americas Qualifier
            • Top two finishers from the Asian Championship 2019 (not counting nations already qualified for Tokyo 2020)
            • Winner of Oceania Qualifier 2019
