Play Baseball

Maybe you've seen Major League Baseball in America played on television, with those big stadiums, colourful uniforms, pitchers throwing the ball at 90 mph and batters hitting it 400 feet!

Well, in Britain, we don't have the big stadiums -- though we do now have our own dedicated baseball centre at Farnham Park near Slough, opened in July 2013 --  and pitchers and batters here are not quite so scary.  But we do have baseball clubs all around the country with adult teams (primarily men but women are also welcome) and with youth teams at different age levels.  These teams play in leagues that range from social and recreational to very competitive, and most clubs will welcome new players and teach them the game.

There are also Regional and National Academies for youth baseball players, open to anyone aged 10-25 who wants to attend.  You can find dates and details in the Events section on the BSUK website or on the Academy Page.

The 2014 baseball season has now started, so the emphasis is on playing rather than recruiting or training.  But many clubs still run open training sessions where new players are welcome, and these are listed below.

We will add to this list as we get more information, so re-visit this page from time to time.
