Lahore, February 13, 2019 (PPI-OT): On directions of World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC), Pakistan Federation Baseball has successfully organized first Baseball5 Exhibition Match at Bahria Town, Lahore on February 5, 2019 to introduce Baseball5 game in Pakistan. WBSC congratulates Syed Fakhar Ali Shah President Pakistan Federation Baseball for historic Baseball5 debut in Pakistan.

Baseball5 has spread all over the world in a very short period of time, with more than 40 countries being introduced to the new urban discipline in less than one year from the launch. This new sport discipline requires fewer athletes, virtually no equipment, and with no need of a dedicated venue it can be adapted to endless situations.

In his message Mr. Riccardo Fraccari President World Baseball Softball Confederation said, “I congratulate the Baseball Federation of Pakistan for embracing and promoting Baseball5 in their country. Lahore is one of most densely populated areas of Pakistan and Baseball5 is conceived indeed for boosting baseball/softball development in those places.”

Syed Fakhar Ali Shah President Pakistan Federation Baseball said that the next event of Baseball5 will be held on February 15, 2019 at Sports Complex University of Central Punjab Lahore. Mr. Musaddiq Hanif Head Coach Pakistan Baseball will be the Organizing Secretary. Teams from different universities will participate in the event.
