Baseball was introduced to Fiji in May 2000 through the initiative of the Baseball Confederation of Oceania (BCO), with the Fiji Islands Baseball Association which was formed one month later.
The introduction of Baseball in Fiji came about due to the hosting of the 2003 South Pacific Games in Fiji.
In order for Baseball to be part of the games Fiji had to field a team in Baseball. BCO Development Officer, Ray Brown who initiated the formation of a young men’s team for the 2003 South Pacific Games is still being involved with FIBSA’s development at present.
In 2002 a Little League (Kids Baseball) was established to grow children’s interest in Baseball, after the Japanese Government provided a coach through the JICA volunteer scheme to develop the game at the primary school level. A brand new Baseball diamond was built in the Laucala Sports City for the 2003 South Pacific Games.
Fiji Baseball has improved its ranking for the third time in the past four years.
Our team is now ranked 58th out of 81 baseball-playing countries in the latest world rankings which reflects the addition of points gathered in 2022.
In 2019 Fiji was ranked 72nd and then moved up to 67th in 2021 prior to the 2022 Pacific Mini Games.
The Fiji Islands Baseball & Softball Association (FIBSA) began its initiation to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the Nihon University, College of International Relations.
Nihon College is located in Mishima City, Japan.
The initiative was developed by Kazunobu Suzuki a former JICA officer in Fiji who now works for the university and Inoke Niubalavu the secretary general of FIBSA.
