First-place final

The winners of the semifinals played each other for first and second place. In a rematch of the 1984 final, the reigning champion Japanese team lost to the United States. Since baseball was a demonstration sport, medals were awarded, but the medals were not "official" (and did not count in the respective nations' medal totals).
