Canadian men's baseball team earns spot in Pan American Games

January 31, 2019 - 7:00 AM

IBIUNA, Brazil - The Canadian men's baseball team has qualified for the Pan American Games, despite having a game postponed on Thursday.

Colombia's win over Panama on Wednesday guaranteed Canada (1-0) a top-four finish at the seven-team qualification tournament — and a spot in the Pan Ams, July 26-Aug. 11 in Lima, Peru.

Canada's final preliminary-round game against Colombia was called off because of poor field conditions.

Canada, the two-time reigning Pan Am Games champion, will play in the semifinals on Saturday, regardless of if the game against Colombia is played.

Canada beat Panama 5-1 in the tournament opener on Tuesday.
