South America

From BR Bullpen

South America is a continent south of North America. The major baseball hotbed in South America is Venezuela, but baseball has been making significant progress in Colombia and Brazil, both of which have appeared at the World Baseball Classic and produced several major leaguers. Baseball is also played in Argentina, Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru, although it is very much a niche sport in those countries.

South American countries compete in baseball in the Bolivarian Games, South American Championship, South American Games and in the Pan-American Games (where they face opponents from North America, Central America and the Caribbean).
