- Pan American Baseball Confederation
The Pan American Baseball Confederation (Confederación Panamericana de Béisbol or COPABE), is the governing body of baseball within the Americas.
Since the rankings were first released by the International Baseball Federation (IBAF), Cuba has maintained its position as the top national baseball team in the world, and by extension the best team in the Pan American Baseball Confederation. With the teams of Cuba, United States, Mexico, Canada, Venezuela and Puerto Rico, COPABE is the most represented confederation in the world top ten.
