History

The Danish Baseball Federation (DBaF) became the official organ for baseball in Denmark after the 29 November 2008 meeting of the Danish Baseball Softball Federation (DBaSoF). At that meeting, the DBaSoF was divided into two federations – DBaF and Danish Softball Federation (DSoF) due to policy conflicts between IBAF and ISF at the time.
February 15, 2009 DBaF become an official member of CEB and IBAF. The DBaSoF was first formed on June 13, 1978, when the first official games were also played among 3 Danish clubs. After 1983, the national baseball tournament ceased to exist, as Danish clubs instead preferred to play fastpitch softball. Only in 1992 was the Danish Baseball Championship revived and a baseball national team also participated again in European Championships. The years from 1992 to 2004 saw annual participation of at least 5 baseball teams in the Danish Championship League. The senior national team also participated in B pool-European Championships in 1998, 2000 and 2002. After 2005, when one team played in the Swedish Championship League, there was a time hiatus in organized Danish baseball. There were no baseball leagues in Denmark from 2003,  only regional pick-up teams who, from 2009-2014, competed annually to play in “Denmark’s Baseball Cup”. After the formation of World Baseball Softball Confederation in 2013, a new Danish Championship League started up with three teams in spring 2014. The league has now grown to 6 teams that cover all of Denmark from the east coast to the west coast. In July of 2020, the Danish Baseball Federation again entered an association agreement with the Danish Softball Federation and gained status with the Danish National Olympic Committee.
