South American Baseball Championships in Brazil

The IBAF reports that the South American Baseball championships will open today in Mato Grosso, Brazil. The five countries competing in this tournament are the host Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Peru and Bolivia. Surprising as it may seem, the team from Argentina has won the last three South American Baseball championships. Maybe that is because major league baseball steals the best players from Brazil and Colombia and leaves Argentina alone.

The winner will get to compete in the Pan Am championships in Toronto, Canada on July 11-19. The first day of action saw Brazil spank Peru 15-5 and Argentine rope Bolivia 21-0.
