  • September 22, 2016

Five-time defending world champions Japan -- winners of the recent LG Presents WBSC Women's Baseball World Cup 2016 in Gijang, Republic of Korea -- have extended the nation's lead from 400 points to 677 points over the second-ranked country due to an unprecedented win-streak of 21 games in World Cup competition. Japan is also ranked No. 1 in both the Men's Baseball and Women's Softball world rankings.

Canada jumped two spots to No. 2 in the world.  The move represents a historical high in the rankings for the Women's Baseball World Cup 2016 silver medallists.

The United States dropped to No. 3 in the world, following a 7th Place finish at the world championship in Gijang, which represented the first time in history that the U.S. Women's National Team did not earn a medal in the women's pinnacle event.

After capturing the bronze medal of the Women's Baseball World Cup 2016, No. 5 Venezuela has moved within striking range of overtaking the U.S. and No. 4 Australia, coming within 124 points of Australia and 247 points of USA.

Chinese Taipei, following the nation's best-ever/4th Place World Cup finish in Gijang, like Venezuela, has significantly narrowed the gap between the No. 3 and No. 6 nations in the world, with only 26 points separating Venezuela and Chinese Taipei.

Korea made the biggest jump forward in women's baseball, advancing four positions to a historical high of No. 7 in the world, following a record 6th Place finish in Gijang for the nation.

Newcomers India and Pakistan debut in the rankings at No. 11 and No. 12 in the world.
