WBSC cancels Women’s Baseball World Cup in Mexico over COVID-19 issues

The Women’s Baseball World Cup and boys' Under-15 Baseball World Cup were both due to be played in the country later this year, but have now been axed.

COVID-19 and travel restrictions related to the pandemic have been blamed for the cancellations, although the WBSC insisted in a statement that its had "worked until the very last minute to determine if playing these events was viable for all parties involved".

Both tournaments were due to be held in Tijuana, which is in Baja California.

Another Mexican state, Sonora, last week hosted the men's Udner-23 Baseball World Cup, which was won by Venezuela.
