The 2006 and 2009 tournaments, each had the same 16–team field, chosen by invitation. Beginning with the 2013 tournament, the four last-place teams from the previous tournament's first round each contested a qualifying round against three additional teams.

The three teams to have won the tournament are Japan (2006, 2009), the Dominican Republic (2013), and the United States (2017). Other teams to have reached the championship game are Cuba (2006), South Korea (2009), and Puerto Rico (2013, 2017). Other teams to have reached the semifinals are the Netherlands and Venezuela. Other teams to have reached the second round are Israel, Italy, Mexico, and Chinese Taipei. The United States is the current World Baseball Classic champion, defeating Puerto Rico at the 2017 World Baseball Classic Final.
