Global Baseball

One man\’s year-long journey through the world of baseball

USA! USA!

Well, the Americans finally pulled it off. The best team of prospects the United States has sent to an international tournament since I started paying attention beat the Cuban National team to take the World Cup crown. The last time the United States won the IBAF World Cup was 1974, and the last time any team other than Cuba took home the gold was when South Korea won it in 1982.

Friend of GlobalBaseball Peter Bjarkman has a nicearticle up on the baseballdecuba website about the dominant run of  the Cuban National Team.

Fun Fact: Despite always boasting at least a solid core of baseball talent, Canada has never earned a medal at the IBAF World cup.

  1. If you want to see any of those World Cup games you can go to stadeo.tv and watch. I was the play by play man for most of them, including the Gold Medal game, and it was AWESOME to see the USA take down the dominant Cubans.

  2. Wow, The USA won? Not bad, considering the way Cuba seems to win those things.
