The European Baseball Championship is the main championship tournament between national baseball teams in Europe, governed by the Confederation of European Baseball (CEB). Italy won the inaugural European Baseball Championship in 1954, and the competition has since been dominated by the Italian team and the Netherlands' team. As of 2010 it is held every other year, in even-numbered years, with a total of thirty-four European Baseball Championships having been played.
The current European Baseball Championship classification system divides the national teams into one of three pools, those being A, B, and C. Teams in Pool A are automatically qualified for the next championship. The two best teams in Pool B will also qualify for the next championship. The two best teams in Pool C will promote to Pool B. The two weakest teams in Pool B will relegate to Pool C.
