U-18 Baseball World Cup™

The World's most competitive international baseball tournament.


The Under-18 Baseball World Cup is arguably the most competitive and best represented international competition in all of baseball. The elite world championship event has featured superstars like Canada’s Brett Lawrie, Japan’s Yu Darvish and Shohei Ohtani, South Korea’s Shin-soo Choo, Cuba’s Yasiel Puig and Aroldis Chapman, and USA’s Clayton Kershaw, Justin Upton and Buster Posey, among countless others – and which, in 2013, had a potential broadcast reach of 144 million homes and potential online/mobile reach of 20 million.

The most recent class of rising stars include Cuba's Jorge Soler, USA's Fracisco Lindor and Canada's Dalton Pompey, who all played at the 2010 U18 Baseball World Cup in Canada.
