The Soviet Union national baseball team was a national team of Soviet Union that represented the nation in senior-level men's international competition.

The team toured the US in 1989 as part of a 12 game goodwill tour to learn the game. In the first game of the tour, they were defeated 21-1 in seven innings by a United States Naval Academy team composed of second and third string players. Vladimir Bogatyrev managed them in the 1990 Goodwill Games and 1991 Intercontinental Cup.
