History

Please find below the current Executive Committee of the British Softball Federation and their roles: Ieuan Gale - President | Laura Burkhardt - Treasurer | Bob Fromer - Administrator | Liz Graham - Competitions and Membership Officer | Alexis Markham-Hill - National Teams Officer | Pete Saunders - Technical Officer | Mike Lott - Coaching Officer | Simon Mortimer – Communications and Marketing Officer | Mike Jennings - General Officer | Stella Ackrell - General Officer | Lesley Morisetti - General Officer   History of the Federation: Baseball in Britain has roots that go back into the 19th century, and it is generally accepted that the game, rather than being "invented" by Abner Doubleday in the United States, actually grew out of English games including “ball and trap”, rounders and cricket. But softball has had a rather shorter history in the UK. In the late 1950s, a group of ex-pat Americans, many of them involved in the film industry, started a Sunday morning men's slowpitch pick-up game in Hyde Park in the centre of London.
