History

Cape Verde Baseball and Softball Federation began as a dream from it's President Luiz Roberto Nunes, who had the opportunity of playing it (Softball) and watching several games while in College in the USA. Since the summer of 1991 after his arrival in America, watching Atlanta Braves x L.A. Dodgers in Atlanta, at the old Braves Field House, Luiz was excited because it reminded him of a game he played in the streets of Brazil growing up, called "bets".
Once he settled in Cape Verde, with a bag full of baseball equipment, with his old son started playing catch and hit some balls in a field nearby his house. Once he found out the large Cuban community here, and hook up with some Cape Verdean that went to Cuba for College, he saw the opportunity to start and promote not only Baseball but Softball, since Cape Verde has a nice year round weather that "plays" a very important factor to the propagation of the game. He found some others with the same desire for the promotion of the game in  4 other islands as well.
