The Irish National Baseball Team has been in existence since 1996 and has taken part in several major baseball tournaments and tours. As in many other sports in Ireland, the team represents both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

These have included:

Ireland finished fourth in the 2002 tournament, won a bronze in the 2004 tournament and managed a silver medal in the 2006 tournament, losing to tournament favourites Croatia.

Ireland won the C pool in 2018, advancing to the B pool of competition in 2019.[2] The competition was played at the International Baseball Centre.
