Olympic baseball qualifier postponed indefinitely

The final Olympic Baseball Qualifier will be postponed again, the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) announced Wednesday.

New dates for the WBSC Americas Qualifier and the Final Qualifier will be announced at a later date.

The final qualification event was originally scheduled for April 17-21 but had been moved to June 17-21.

The six teams set to compete in the WBSC Baseball Final Qualifier include host Chinese Taipei, Australia, China, the Netherlands and the second- and third-place finishers from the WBSC Americas Baseball Qualifier.

The winner of the Final qualifier will earn the sixth and final berth into the Tokyo 2020 Olympic baseball tournament.

Four nations have already qualified for baseball at the 2020 Olympics: host Japan, Israel, Korea and Mexico.
