2020 Games in Tokyo: Baseball in Japan
Many people believe that baseball is a modern addition to the Games, however the truth is quite the opposite: the sport first appeared as an event in 1904 at the St. Louis Games and was played again at Stockholm 1912, Paris 1924, Berlin 1936, Helsinki 1952 and Tokyo 1964, before becoming a semi-permanent fixture from 1984. While not appearing at the 2012 or 2016 Games, Tokyo will welcome the sport back to the Games, in part due to the huge popularity of the sport amongst the Japanese population. Although the sport of baseball is practically synonymous with the United States of America, it is actually Cuba that has historically dominated the sport, claiming gold in 1992, 1996 and 2004. Japan and South Korea have also performed well in the event and will certainly hope that home advantage can help them claim that elusive gold medal at the Tokyo Games. It is sure to be a fascinating and exhilarating event, so to secure your place there, buy your 2020 Games in Tokyo: Baseball tickets here at StubHub today.

Qualification for baseball at the Games is earned via a tournament where teams representing American and Asian-Pacific nations tend to assert their dominance over their European and African counterparts. The competition follows the standards of professional baseball, with a round-robin round to begin, leading to the medals round where the final four nations battle it out to claim that all-important gold medal. In 2008, baseball at the Games introduced a rule unique to the sport in which tied games were entered into an extra innings with base runners on first and second base without any outs. The result is that the event has become fast, furious and hugely entertaining—one certainly not to be missed.
