The Dominican Republic and Australia claimed the two tickets on offer to the WBSC Men's Softball World Cup Finals 2025 after winning the all-important WBSC Men's Softball World Cup Group A Playoff games in Hermosillo, Mexico on Sunday.

On the tournament's last day, world No. 14 Dominican Republic defeated No. 5 Venezuela, 2-0 in the final to secure their spot in next year's Finals while defending champions and world No. 2 Australia triumphed over No. 9 Mexico and Venezuela with identical 4-1 scores, to earn the second ticket.

Venezuela, who had progressed through pool play unbeaten, finished third to remain in contention for one of the two Finals 2025 wild card spots. Mexico came in fourth, while Czechia clinched fifth place after an eight-inning victory over the Philippines.

After an outstanding performance throughout the tournament, Dominican pitcher Yan Carlos Gonzalez was named WBSC Men's Softball World Cup Group A Most Outstanding Player. He posted a 0.81 ERA in 26 innings pitched, striking out 42 opponents. He was the winning pitcher in all four wins of the Dominican Republic, including Sunday's final against Venezuela.
