The World Baseball Softball Confederation's International Baseball executives awarded Canada, Chinese Taipei, and Japan rights to host upcoming Youth Baseball World Cups.  From the WBSC press release:

PRAGUE (CZE) - The hosting rights of three youth-centered Baseball World Cups were awarded by WBSC's International Baseball executives in Prague, Czech Republic.

Taichung, Chinese Taipei was named the host city of the new U21 Baseball World Cup, in which twelve countries will participate this year from 7-16 November.

International Baseball executives also voted to grant National Teams the option to include a limited number (maximum of three participating in a match at any given time) of U23 players on their U21 Baseball World Cup rosters, in order to include and connect with an even broader range of young athletes in the Baseball World Cups.

Japan, which will host the Women's Baseball World Cup this September in Miyazaki, was selected as the host of the next U18 Baseball World Cup in 2015.

The "Mecca of Japanese Baseball" -- historic Koshien Stadium -- will be the centerpiece of the 2015 U18 Baseball World Cup for the athletes and spectators. Built in 1924 (in Nishinomiya, Hyogo), Koshien Stadium is Japan's oldest ballpark, is instantly recognizable by its unique all-dirt infield, and is also the storied home of one of Nippon Professional Baseball's most famous clubs, the Hanshin Tigers.

In 2017, the U18 Baseball World Cup will go to Canada, as International Baseball executives declared member federation Baseball Canada as the host of the 28th edition of the U18 event. Baseball Canada successfully delivered the 2010 Baseball World Cup in Thunder Bay and had also given strong bids for the 2013 and 2015 editions.
