Should Team USA win, it will be the second gold medal in the country's history in baseball. The Americans won it all back at the 2000 games, which were held in Sydney, Australia. USA Baseball won a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. That was the most recent time baseball had been included in the Olympics.
Japan, for its part, will be seeking its first gold medal in baseball.. The Japanese have previously won two silvers and a bronze. The host country has never before won the baseball gold.
