Till date after the WBSC Extraordinary Congress at the Gaborone International Convention Centre (GICC) , there are 184 WBSC Members with the fabulous and extraordinary growth and development of this game. The new members were welcomed with applause by the WBSC Congress.

“Today marks another historic moment toward the global development of our sport and achieving our mission of building a billion-strong baseball and softball community over the next decade, particularly as we take aim on Olympic inclusion in 2024 and 2028,” said an emotional and spirited WBSC President Riccardo Fraccari.

“It’s a great day,” said President Riccardo Fraccari. “The day we really become a united Federation, proud world governing body of a global sport. Starting Monday, we all need to head to the same direction. And we want to interact with you, member countries. We want you to live your Federation day by day”.


The result was sealed by 162 votes, expressed by 125 Federations, representing 94 countries.
The Congress also approved new memberships of Tanzania (baseball and softball), Botswana baseball, Congo (baseball and softball). Ghana and Mongolia softball merged with the baseball Federation and Nepal baseball merged with the softball Federation. St Marteen (baseball and softball) became a provisional member.
