Five teams have been confirmed for the 2019 World Port Tournament, which will be held from July 12 to 21 at Family Stadium in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Besides host Netherlands and defending champion Chinese Taipei, also Japan, Curacao and a selection from the United States will be participating. Seven-time winner Cuba is missing the tournament for the first time since 1993, as the Cuban Baseball Federation isn’t able to send a strong team to the WPT. The United States last participated in 2007. For the Netherlands the WPT serves as main preparation prior the European Championship in Germany in September.
