LOS ANGELES (AFP) - The United States men's baseball team qualified for the Tokyo Olympics on Saturday (June 5), beating Venezuela 4-2 to finish 4-0 and win the America's qualifying tournament in Florida.
Two-time Major League Baseball (MLB) All-Star Todd Frazier had a home run and four hits for the Americans, who will compete in the Olympic baseball tournament with Japan, Mexico, Israel and South Korea.
A sixth team will be added later.
The Olympic tournament will be held July 28 to Aug 7 in Fukushima and Yokohama.
Venezuela can still get into the Games if they win another qualifying tournament on June 22-26 in Mexico.
Australia, the Dominican Republic, Netherlands and Taiwan are also competing in that competition.
The American team is mainly made up of former major MLB players and some minor league players.
