Argentina is the new leader of the men’s softball world ranking

Argentina became the number one of the Men’s Softball World Rankings, after the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) announced the updated ranking of the discipline. Our country surpassed Japan and reached the top of the table for the first time, marking a new milestone in the history of Argentine sports.

“This is an achievement for all of Argentine softball, as it crowns many years of serious work, responsible and planned from the bottom up to high performance, with great support from various actors, such as ENARD and the Sports Secretariat, among others”, said Jacinto Cipriota, President of the Argentine Softball Confederation. “The ranking includes all international tournaments in a period of four years -and in all categories-, which marks our regularity and permanence in the elite of our sport, and today positions Argentina as the best men’s softball program in the world”.

The Senior Men’s National Team of Argentina currently holds all the titles to which a country of the American continent can aspire. Argentina won the 2019 World Cup, the gold medal at the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, and the 2022 Pan American Championship, recently held in the city of Paraná, Entre Ríos.

The WBSC Men’s Softball World Rankings include all World Cups, Pan American Games, Pan American Championships and South American Championships, played in the last four years, in all categories -including Under-18, Under-23 and Seniors-, as well as all events and matches sanctioned by the WBSC.

The ranking, published on the WBSC website, indicates that Argentina has not dropped below fifth place in all international competitions disputed in the last four years, including five podiums and three titles (those mentioned in the 2019 World Cup, Lima 2019 Pan American Games and 2022 Pan American Championship).
