for the quotas Europe will be between Italy and the Netherlands

Don't forget Israel. I think Israel will be the favourite for the European/African spot (men).

If I'm not mistaken, Israel is already out. The five European Teams who will participate at the European/African qualification tournament are the top five from the European Championships 2019. And Israel failed to qualify for the EC.

Israel will represent Africa. They are by far the best team in Africa, so Israel will play with the top 5 of Europe for 1 Olympic spot.

Its a shame baseball only gets 6 spots and sports like field hockey get double that.

Is this certain? How can Israel represent Africa? They lost in the qualification for the European Championships 2019: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_European_Baseball_Championship_–_Qualification

 

And now they are representing Africa just like that? Israel isn't even in Africa. It's in Asia. And in Sports, athletes from Israel traditionally are part of the European Federations.

Israel will not even take part into the qualification process, since most of the MLB players who started for them in the last WBC are not eligible for International play under the IOC rules...

and in any case, without their best MLB/Triple A players (they won't be able to show up at the final OQT because it will be held when the US leagues are already playing their season), they don't even exist on the Baseball chart...

 

the Euro/African spot would eventually go to the Netherlands...they won't even have to bother of Italy, since the new boss of our federation is trying to destroy our National team by not calling anymore the US and/or South American born Italians...so, we won't be competitive at all also in that tournament...

A sport that can't get it's best athletes to participate doesn't deserve to be at the olympics, and much less does it deserve to have that many quota.
