  Tommy Lasorda is one of baseball's real characters. For many years he managed the Los Angeles Dodgers, leading them to two World Series wins. He was most usually seen in the home-team dugout at Dodger Stadium, unless he had emerged onto the diamond to pull a pitcher or have a friendly discussion with an umpire. He was not only part of the Dodgers' fabric, he was and is also part of what makes up Los Angeles. His Italian roots, love of food and candid personality have made him an attraction in a city that is overflowing with celebrities and in a country that had invented baseball and saw it as its own game.
Having been elected to the American Baseball Hall of Fame he had arguably achieved all his sport had to offer. But he hadn't coached an American team at an Olympic Games. Before coming to Sydney he had said, "To coach for my country at the world's biggest sports festival - this is fantastic. This is the biggest thing I've done. I don't need to do this. I want to do this."
When the USA won the baseball gold medal at Sydney on his 73rd birthday he showed all the passion he was famous for. Tears streamed down his face and he said, "This is bigger than winning the World Series. I have never been as proud as I was tonight." The Americans had to beat the Cuban juggernaut to claim the gold. The victory took the Olympic title back to the country that invented the sport.
Baseball at the Olympic Games has had an interesting history. Exhibition matches had been played at seven Olympic Games between 1912 and 1988, but it wasn't until 1992 at Barcelona that it became a medal sport. In 2000, there was another important innovation when, for the first time, professional baseballers were eligible to compete in the Olympic Games. Despite this, it was only the USA which did not select players who were currently at the peak of their major league careers. Top professional players from other countries' top leagues were released to play in the Sydney Games.
Eight teams qualified to compete in Sydney. The Cubans were favoured to repeat their gold medal performances in Barcelona and Atlanta. The USA and Japan were expected to contend, as were Korea, the 1999 Asian champions, and Australia, which had won the Intercontinental Cup in 1999. The Netherlands and Italy were both considered to be capable of providing upsets, while the Republic of South Africa, competing for the first time, was expected to struggle.
Sydney 2000 saw some highly credentialled players compete. Cuban third-baseman Omar Linares, who boasted remarkable statistics in both Cuban and international competition, came to these Games with an Olympic batting average of .488. Veteran catcher Pat Borders of the USA had won two world series rings with the Toronto Blue Jays in a 12-year major league career. Australia was led by former Milwaukee Brewers' catcher and utility player Dave Nilsson, a 1999 National League 'All Star' selection. Japan included pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka, 1999 rookie of the year, and Korea featured Lee Seung-Yeop, who held the domestic record of 54 home runs in one season.
A total of 287 000 spectators witnessed the entire tournament, 42 000 at Blacktown and 245 000 at the Baseball Stadium. The preliminary rounds, held at both the Baseball Centre in Blacktown in Sydney's west, and the Baseball Stadium at Sydney Olympic Park, provided some 18000 spectators each day with dramatic and historic contests.
In Game 2, played at Sydney Olympic Park, the USA and Japan entered into a monumental pitching duel. Ben Sheets pitched seven shutout innings, leaving the game with a 2-0 lead. However, the USA's relievers were unable to hold the lead, as Japan scored one run in both the eight and the ninth innings to even the score at 2-2.
It wasn't until the bottom of the 13th inning, with the score still 2-2, and with one runner on base, that left-fielder Mike Neill launched a shot over the right-field wall to give the United States a 4-2 victory. It was the longest baseball game ever played at the Olympic Games – a total of 213 minutes – and the performances of Sheets and Neill provided a portent of what would occur later in competition.
Game 14 featured the Netherlands and Cuba. Cuba had beaten South Africa 16–0, Italy 13–5 and Korea 6–5 in its earlier games, while the Netherlands had upset Australia 6–4 and then lost to Japan 2–10 and the United States 2–6. Cuba was the unbeatable favourite for this game and things appeared to be going according to schedule when brilliant third-baseman Omar Linares homered for Cuba in the top of the first inning. However, Dutch pitcher Ken Brauckmiller recovered and pitched strongly, scattering seven hits over eight innings. In contrast, Cuban starter Norge Luis Vera breezed though the first two innings before running into trouble in the bottom of the third inning. He was promptly dragged by Cuban coach Servio Borges and replaced with flamethrower Maels Rodriguez. After Rodriguez, who was timed at 99 mph, struck out a batter, he faced left-fielder Hensley 'Bam Bam' Meulens with two out and loaded bases. Meulens' hit gave the Netherlands a 4–1 lead that they held until the ninth inning After right-fielder Miguel Caldes reached base on an error in the ninth, Dutch coach Pat Murphy brought in centre-fielder Rikkert Faneyte to close out the game, which he duly did, the Cubans scoring one unearned run in the process. The 4–2 victory by the Netherlands was the first defeat for the Cubans in Olympic competition.
Every team had its bright moments. Although convincingly beaten in all their other games, South Africa recorded its first Olympic Games win by upsetting the Netherlands 3–2. Heroes included Tim Harrell, who pitched a complete game, and right-fielder Ian Holness, who slugged two home runs. A return of one win from eight games may not sound impressive, but South African manager Raymond Tew stated after this match that the win "is the most important in South Africa's baseball history. The impetus in the development of baseball in South Africa will be boosted – we did not want to lose all the games and send the wrong message."
There were some brilliant individual performances during the preliminary rounds. Despite playing in an under-achieving team, Australian David Nilsson comfortably had the highest batting average, an amazing .565, followed by Cuban Antonio Pacheco with .450. Nilsson also led the slugging percentage .957, followed by Cuban Oscar Macias with .783. Eight players tied for the home run lead with two apiece. Overall, Nilsson was the outstanding offensive player, finishing in the top ten in every offensive category, even stealing three bases.
A number of pitchers returned impressive statistics. Five pitchers conceded no earned runs after pitching six or more innings during the preliminary games. Jon Rauch of the USA with 21 strikeouts was the tournament's number one, clear of Cuban Jose Ibar with eighteen. Reliever Ryan Franklin from the USA was 3–0, the only pitcher to record three wins. Cuban reliever Maels Rodriguez struck out 15 and gave up no earned runs over 8.2 innings. Korean Chong Tae-Hyon pitched seven innings, as did Roy Oswalt of the USA. There were also some hard luck stories. Probably the worst sufferer was Australian Shayne Bennett, who ended up with a 0–2 record despite a miserly 0.75 earned run average, let down by poor fielding and poor offence.
The semifinals and medal games were virtual pitching clinics, following the pattern set in the preliminary rounds. Cuban Jose Ariel Contreras pitched a six-hit, complete game shutout against Japan, his second shutout of the tournament. Cuba went ahead 1–0 in the bottom of the fourth inning and added two insurance runs in the sixth, all from first-baseman Orestes Kindelan's bat. Starter Tomohiro Kuroki pitched bravely for Japan but received no offensive support.
The semifinal between the USA and Korea was equally exciting. Korea scored twice in the top of the third inning but the USA responded in the bottom of the fourth and drew level in the seventh. With one out in the bottom of the ninth, firstbaseman Doug Mientkiewicz homered for a 3–2 win to put the USA into the final with Cuba.
Cuba had won their earlier match against the USA during the preliminary round, gaining a four-run lead in the first inning which they never relinquished, winning 6–1. That game had provided the most controversial moment during the baseball competition, when US slugger Ernie Young confronted pitcher Jose Ibar after being hit by a pitch timed at 92 mph. The dugouts emptied but commonsense prevailed.
So the final brought the two heavyweights of the competition together. United States manager Tommy Lasorda entrusted the pitching duties to 22-year-old Ben Sheets, their number one starter. For Cuba, Pedro Luis Lazo, somewhat surprisingly, was the starting pitcher. Lazo started confidently, striking out the first two batters. Next batter was left-fielder Mike Neill, who came into the final with a modest batting average, but also with two home runs, one of which was the clutch homer that won the game against Japan. Neill put the USA in front in the first inning with a blast over the left-field wall and it was a lead that Cuba never threatened. Lazo was in trouble again in the second inning, giving up two hits, but Cuban coach Borges responded quickly, replacing him with Jose Ibar. Ibar put out the fire but ran into trouble himself in the fifth inning, giving up a run and putting two runners on base. Again Borges acted quickly, bringing in hard-throwing Maels Rodriguez. With two out, right-fielder Ernie Young hit a hard ground ball up the middle, scoring two runs, both debited to Ibar, to give the USA a 4–0 lead that everyone at the match sensed was unassailable. This indeed was the final score.
In contrast, Sheets never allowed Cuba the hint of a run. He cruised through the game, giving up only three single-base hits while not walking anyone. He had brilliant fielding to support him, especially short-stop Adam Everett, who made seven assists, and first-baseman Mientkiewicz, who made some spectacular saves. Only Omar Linares made any impact for Cuba, getting two hits. The bronze medal play-off matched up Asian heavyweights Japan and Korea. Korea had defeated Japan 7–6 in Game 22 of the preliminary round. That was a surprisingly high score, as both teams displayed stronger defence than offence. The bronze medal match was to prove almost as close, but with defence predominating. Opposing pitchers Daisuke Matsuzaka of Japan and Koo Dae-Sung of Korea were commanding, both pitching complete games. Matsuzaka struck out ten batters; Koo struck out 11.
In the bottom of the eighth inning, with the score still locked at 0–0, Korean centre-fielder Jung Soo-Keun sacrificed shortstop Park Jin-Man to second. Matsuzaka induced a ground ball but second-baseman Jun Heima's throwing error left runners at the corners. Korea's major offensive threat, slugger Lee Seung-Yuop, then hit a two-out double to score both runners. Lee then scored off Kim Dong-Joo's single to right field. All three runs were unearned. Japan could only manage a consolation run in the ninth inning, leaving Korea the bronze medal winners 3–1.
The pitchers were not as dominant as in the softball competition but still the defence was mainly on top. The introduction of professional ballplayers to the Olympic Games could be considered a success.
The importance of Olympic baseball in the minds of the players was summed up best by Australian David Nilsson, who had turned his back on the 2000 American Major League season in order to represent Australia at the Olympic Games. When asked what he had given up to play in the Games, he replied, "I don't feel I've made any sacrifices to play in the Olympics – it's still the Olympics."

Overview

The 2000 Olympic baseball tournament was held at the Blacktown Baseball Stadium at the Blacktown Olympic Centre in Blacktown, with the medal round games held at the Sydney Baseball Stadium in the Olympic Park in Sydney. The Blacktown Olympic Centre was built specifically for the baseball and softball tournaments of the 2000 Olympics. It was actually located in the Rooty Hill district of Blacktown, a suburb 42 km west of Sydney. Now known as Blacktown International Sportspark, it is still used for baseball and softball, but also for football (soccer) and Aussie Rules football. The Sydney venue was later renamed the Sydney Showground Stadium and is still used for baseball games, and rugby and Aussie Rules football matches.

The tournament consisted of eight teams who participated in a round-robin tournament, which advanced the top four teams to the semi-finals, where a single-elimination semi-final, final, and a bronze medal game determined the top four places. The eight teams were chosen as follows – Australia as the host nation; the top two teams from the 1999 Pan American Games (Cuba, United States); the top two teams from the 1999 European Championships (Italy, the Netherlands); the top two teams from the 1999 Asian Championships (Japan, Korea [South]); and South Africa, the 1999 All-Africa Games Champion, qualified by defeating Guam, the 1999 Oceanian Champion, in a play-off for the final spot.

Cuba had won the gold medal in 1992 and 1996, and came into Sydney with an 18-game Olympic winning streak. As the dominant international baseball nation since 1970 they were heavily favored, and they won their first three games to extend the streak to 21. However, they then lost to the Netherlands, 4-2, and in the final game, the United States won the gold medal, defeating Cuba 4-0.

Baseball at the 2000 Summer Olympics was the third time an Olympic baseball tournament had been held as a full medal sport, and the ninth time it had been part of the Summer Olympic Games in any capacity. It was held in Sydney, Australia from 17 September through to the bronze and gold medal games on 27 September. Two venues were used for the Games: the Sydney Baseball Stadium and Blacktown Olympic Park. For the first time in Olympic competition, professional baseball players were eligible to participate, though no active players from Major League Baseball were available.

The United States won the gold medal by defeating Cuba 4–0. Since becoming a medal sport, it was the first time Cuba had not won the gold medal. The gold medal game was also only the second game Cuba had lost in Olympic baseball, having lost to the Netherlands earlier in the tournament. South Korea won their first Olympic baseball medal, beating Japan in the bronze medal match 3–1.

Summary

Cuba was still the dominant international team, but less so than in 1992 and 1996. Several of the Cuban players were defecting to the United States, lured by huge dollars from Major League baseball teams. And the International Baseball Association (IBA) opened up the Olympic tournament to professionals. Major league baseball did not release its players, however, so the USA team was made up of minor leaguers, several of whom were former Major Leaguers. The United States’ manager was Tommy Lasorda, formerly manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The first sign of Cuba's weakness was shown in the round-robin play. The Dutch team upset the Cubans 4-2, with a 3-RBI double by former Major League player Hensley Meulens accounting for Cuba's first ever Olympic defeat.

The final game saw the USA play Cuba, with Ben Sheets pitching for the Americans. He threw a 3-hit complete game shutout, and the United States won, 4-0. Lasorda, who had managed two World Series’ champions with the Dodgers, later commented that nothing could compare to winning an Olympic gold medal.

Format

The main tournament featured eight teams. These teams were selected from a series of continental qualifying tournaments, with the exception of Australia who qualified automatically as hosts. As had been the case at the 1996 Games in Atlanta, two teams each qualified from the Americas via the 1999 Pan American Games, Asia via the 1999 Asian Baseball Championship, and Europe via the 1999 European Baseball Championship. The final spot went to the winner of a deciding series between the African and Oceania champions, as determined by the 1999 All-Africa Games and the 1999 Oceania Baseball Championship respectively. This playoff was won by South Africa, who swept Guam in a best-of-five series in Johannesburg in December 1999.

The eight teams met in a round-robin series, facing each other once. The top four teams from this then met in the finals, with the first and fourth placed teams playing against each other in one semi final, and the second and third placed teams in the other. The losers of these semi finals competed in the bronze medal game, while the winners met in the gold medal game.
