The United States Blind Baseball Association Champions Adaptive Sports for All

The United States Blind Baseball Association (USBBA) is a charitable, non-profit corporation. USBBA is dedicated to the development, management, regulation  and promotion of our mixed gender adaptive sport of Blind Baseball in America. Blind Baseball originated in Italy in 1998 and continues to grow in popularity across the globe. 

Our adaptive sport of Blind Baseball is overseen by our international governing body, AIBXC of Bologna, Italy. In 2022, the World Baseball Softball Confederation sanctioned Blind baseball, and hosted the first WBSC Blind Baseball International Cup in Beek, Netherlands. An All-Star team of blind athletes and coaches traveled to Europe to represent the United States in August of that year, where they competed against teams from Italy, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands. We were all excited and proud when they won the bronze medal for the United States.  

Building on their accomplishments, many of the coaches and players from that Bronze Medal winning team formed and joined the USBBA, to develop youth and adult Blind Baseball programs. In June of 2024, the USBBA accepted an invitation from the World Baseball Softball Confederation  to participate in this year’s WBSC Blind Baseball International Cup, to be held in London, United Kingdom.  Our blind athletes, coaches and volunteers have worked very hard to develop their skills to present a Cohesive and competitive team to represent the United States at this year’s biennial tournament.

Aside from the many recognized benefits organized team sports offer our blind youth and adults, we believe USBBA’s development of Blind Baseball in the United States will aid WBSC and AIBXC in their global effort to have our adaptive sport of Blind Baseball recognized as a Paralympic Sport by the International Paralympic Committee.

Our staff at USBBA remains 100% volunteer and is comprised of resolute sighted and blind/visually impaired individuals who believe in our mission and future success. While the tenacity of our USBBA players, coaches and volunteers allow us to make notable progress, we always welcome additional assistance and  support.
