Pan American Games

Our sport has been part of the Pan American Games family since 1979, when Softball made its first appearance in the Americas sport festival held in San Juan, Puerto Rico. This was a historic moment for our continent Softball, as it not only marked the beginning of our sport in the program of the Pan American Games, but was also the cornerstone for the creation of the Pan American Softball Confederation (CONPASA).

Toronto was the tenth consecutive participation of Softball in the Pan American Games. From San Juan 1979, Softball has been continuously present in all editions of the Games, participating with the Men and Women branches until Rio 2007, where was only present the competition for Women (the same happened in Guadalajara 2011). However, Toronto 2015 marked the return of the Men’s competition to the Pan American Games.

Canada follows with 16; and behind comes Cuba with 8 medals; Puerto Rico 5; Belize, Venezuela and Argentina 2; while Dominican Republic and Panama had one medal.

Meanwhile, in the Men’s side, Canadian team has dominated the competition, winning gold in the eight Games disputed.
