Men's Team Competition

Australia made its first appearance in the official Olympic baseball tournament in 1996. The team won two of its preliminary round games, against Korea and Japan, but lost the other five. The Australians' record put them in a three-way tie for fifth, with all three teams eliminated from contention and the tie-breaker rules used only to formally place the three teams. Australia came out on the bottom of that tie-breaker, and ended up in seventh place.
