Softball Olympic Games Tokyo 2020

The USA Baseball National Team is back on the world stage at the Tokyo Olympics. The 2020 Games are Team USA's fourth Olympic appearance and first since 2008, after the sport was left out of the London 2012 Summer Olympics and the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics. CBS Sports' Dayn Perry broke down everything you need to know about baseball at the Summer Olympic Games here.

Team USA began their campaign for baseball gold on Friday when they defeated Israel, 8-1. USA is 1-0 in pool play, and will next play the most recent Olympic champion South Korea on Saturday morning, with the winner advancing to the quarterfinals.

In the win over Israel, the United States took a 3-0 lead in the third inning thanks to a two-run home run by former Yankees first baseman Tyler Austin, and the score remained 3-1 until the sixth inning. Right-hander Joe Ryan, who recently went from the Rays to the Twins in the Nelson Cruz trade, held Israel to a solo home run in six efficient innings.

The United States finished fourth in 1992, claimed bronze in 1996 and won a gold medal at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney when they defeated Cuba 4-0 in the final. Team USA failed to qualify in 2004 before earning a bronze medal in 2008 with an 8-4 win over Japan.

Team USA's 24-man roster includes notable MLB veterans in Scott Kazmir, Todd Frazier, and Edwin Jackson. Kazmir and Frazier appeared in the majors this season and have made multiple All-Star appearances in their careers.
