IBAF World Rankings


SWITZERLAND – Propelled by an exciting gold medal triumph at the final Intercontinental Cup in Taiwan last month, Cuba remained atop the 2010 International Baseball Federation (IBAF) World Baseball Rankings with 986.02 points. The United States (953.25), Korea (811.34), Japan (799.74) and Taiwan (524.36), respectively, round out the top five spots.

Latin American countries grabbed 13 of the first 46 slots in the rankings, which are based on points earned in IBAF sanctioned events by the various national teams of each nation. Thus, some top baseball countries like No. 13 Dominican Republic – which is a hotbed of future MLB stars – are ranked lower than some nations who simply field squads in more tournaments at different age groups.
