    2019 is a light year, with the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and the 2021 World Baseball Classic being the next big events. We do have the 2019 Pan Am games, but I was a little surprised to see women's baseball dropped and a lot surprised to see USA apparently not participating in the men's tournament?

    Four spots are filled (host Peru, Argentina, Puerto Rico, and Cuba) with the remaining four to be filled at a qualifier later this month in Brazil. The participants are Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, and Venezuela.

    Why would USA not take part? @Orel Miraculous ?

    The answer, in case anyone cares, via sportsnet.ca.

    What's Premier12, you might not be asking? Via Wikipedia:

    Looks like the 2019 version will, at least in part, be played in Japan.

    That ranking say severything about the very sad level of international ‘competition’ for baseball.
