Description:
Baseball at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing was held from August 13 to August 23. All games were played at Wukesong Baseball Field, a temporary venue constructed at the Beijing Wukesong Culture & Sports Center. Olympic baseball is competed by men only, while women compete in the similar sport of softball.

This event may be the last baseball event contested in the Olympics history, as the International Olympic Committee voted to remove baseball from the program in the 2012 Olympics. Along with softball, baseball was rejected for inclusion in the 2016 Summer Olympics at the IOC's meeting in October 2009.

This was also the first time that the IBAF's new extra-inning rule was officially in effect. South Korea won the gold medal in a 3–2 final victory against Cuba.
