History

Baseball did not exist in Laos until 2012. The landlocked nation saw its first baseball team only in 2013 after the Korean volunteer mobilised around ten people who had an interest in playing the American sport beginning with practice sessions at one of the car parks in the capital city Vientiane. Despite its short history, the progress it has made is remarkable.
More than 100 Lao people now enjoy the previously non-existent sport in the country. When the Lao Baseball Federation established in 2017, there are already three teams participating in the domestic baseball league. Moreover, Laos dispatched a national team to the 2018 Asian Games in August. It was the first time that the Laos baseball team participated in an international match. A range of different South Korean government organizations, including the Korea International Cooperation Agency, or KOICA, the Korean Embassy in  Laos, as well as the Korean private company pay a vital part in Lao Baseball Development. In 2020, the 1st Lao Baseball Stadium was completed, the National Baseball Training Center was established right after that. Laos also hold 2 Baseball Leagues Competition in 2020 and 2021.
