2015 Pan American Games logo

The 2015 Pan American Games were held in Toronto, ON, starting on July 10th. They were the first Pan American Games to feature women's baseball as a medal event in addition to men's baseball. In the men's field, Canada became the second team to win the Gold Medal at multiple Pan American Games, let alone consecutive ones (only Cuba had done so before). The US won the inaugural women's title. Both Gold Medal games featured the US vs. Canada. Prominent players to appear were former major leaguers Jeff Francis (Canada), Vicente Padilla (Nicaragua) and Casey Kotchman (USA) while heading to MLB stardom were Canada's Tyler O'Neill, Cuba's Adolis García and the US's Josh Hader. Other big names were four-time Cuban MVP Alfredo Despaigne and Kelsie Whitmore and Stacy Piagno, two of the first women to play in the independent leagues.
