The World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) has released the new Women’s Baseball World Rankings.
The WBSC announced today (April 22) that the new rankings are based on the combined scores from this year’s Women’s Baseball World Cup and continental qualifiers.
According to the new rankings, the South Korean women’s national team moved up one spot from 10th to 9th in the world rankings.
The Korean Women’s National Team won the bronze medal at the Women’s Baseball Asian Cup (BFA) in Hong Kong in late May, finishing third. The team then participated in the Women’s Baseball World Cup (WBSC) Group A qualifiers in Canada in early August, but ended the tournament prematurely after losing all five games.
There have been some big shifts in the rankings among the top nations. Mexico, ranked 12th in the world, jumped seven spots to No. 5 after qualifying for the Super Round with three wins and two losses in Group A of the Women’s World Cup.
Venezuela also jumped from fifth to third. Venezuela also moved up two spots to No. 3 after qualifying for the Super Round with a 3-2 record in Group B of the Women’s World Cup.토토사이트
Canada’s vertical drop in the world rankings is notable. Canada went 4-1 in Group A qualifying for the Women’s World Cup, but dropped five spots to No. 8. The WBSC explains that “Canada did not earn any points after missing last year’s Americas Qualifier, which resulted in a drop in the rankings.
Meanwhile, Japan and Chinese Taipei remained unchanged at No. 1 and No. 2. The United States remained at No. 4.
Meanwhile, five new countries have joined the Women’s World Baseball Rankings system, bringing it up to 25 countries from 20. Indonesia (17th), Thailand (19th), Malaysia and Sri Lanka (tied for 21st) and Great Britain (25th) joined WBSC Women’s Baseball with new world rankings.
