Baseball World Cup Winners

Cuba clearly won the most Baseball World Cup titles with 25. In 2011, there was no bronze medal game due to inclement weather causing many games to be rescheduled, as well as canceling the bronze medal game to make time for the final. See also the winners of the Baseball World Classic from 2006.

The win by the Netherlands in 2011 was the first win by a European nation since the inaugural event in 1938.
