The Netherlands national baseball team is a national team of Netherlands and is controlled by the Koninklijke Nederlanse Baseball en Softball Bond. It represents the nation in senior-level men's international competition. The team is a member of the CEB. The Dutch national team has won over two-thirds of the European Championships they have competed in. The people who have played for the Dutch national team in the most games have been Raily Legito, Dirk van 't Klooster, Marcel Joost and Johnny Balentina.

Among the bigger Dutch upsets have been wins over Cuba in the 2000 Olympics and 2007 Baseball World Cup and the Dominican Republic twice in a row in the 2009 World Baseball Classic. They beat the USA and Cuba twice during the 2011 Baseball World Cup to win the event, the first team other than the US to finish ahead of Cuba in the event since 1951 (South Korea and Colombia had won in years in which Cuba did not appear). They beat both defending runner-up South Korea and Cuba (twice) in the 2013 World Baseball Classic.
