About Baseball & Softball

Baseball first debuted at the Olympic Games at St. Louis 1904 as an unofficial sport before featuring again in a similar guise at Stockholm 1912, Berlin 1936 and in the 1950s, 1960s and 1980s.

It finally became an official Olympic sport at Barcelona 1992 as male only event, with Cuba beating Chinese Taipei in the gold medal match. Women were able to compete four years later as softball joined the programme and the USA were crowned champions in Atlanta.

Both events continued on the programme through to Beijing 2008 but were not included at both London 2012 and Rio 2016.

Cuba top the baseball standings with three gold and two silver medals while the USA have claimed three softball golds and one silver, losing out to Japan in 2008 who will host the next Games at Tokyo 2020.
