The Asian Baseball Championship is the main championship tournament between national baseball teams in Asia, governed by the Baseball Federation of Asia (BFA). It is held every other year in odd-numbered years and since 1983 it also functions as the qualification games for the Baseball at the Summer Olympics if the event year is exactly one year before the Olympics. The competition has been dominated by teams from the Republic of China (Taiwan) (which competes under the name of Chinese Taipei since 1983 because of political reasons), Japan and South Korea.
