Baseball5: Accessible Urban Baseball for Everyone


Baseball5: Accessible Urban Baseball for Everyone

Meet Baseball5: the hip, new partner of America’s Pastime! It’s a lightning-fast, high-energy game that shares the same core principles as traditional baseball. But here’s what makes it special: it can be played anywhere, with just a rubber ball. No fancy equipment needed!

Baseball5 was born from a desire to make baseball more accessible to everyone, without compromising the uniqueness of the game. So, we stripped away all the complicated stuff and created a dynamic, mixed-gender team sport that’s all about instant fun.

Each team has five players – plus reserves – and depending on the format, a game can last between 15 and 20 minutes. Baseball5 is the epitome of a cool sport: it’s sustainable, inclusive, youth-focused and makes non structured spaces come alive with athletic energy.

Baseball5 is built on the pillars of Inclusion, Accessibility, Confidence, Innovation and Teamwork. Baseball5 is a game for everyone that can be mastered in minutes. No need for extensive equipment, a dedicated venue, or even a pitcher! All you need is a ball! #PlayEverywhere


The World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) launched a project for a new urban version of baseball/softball in 2017. The new five-on-five discipline–which only requires a ball to play–was based on the 'four corners' game that was born on the streets of Cuba. In the summer of 2017, the WBSC, together with the French Baseball Softball Federation (FFBS), demonstrated Baseball5 at the Friendship Games in Bujumbura, Burundi.

Later that year, Baseball5 received its first international acknowledgement when the concept was nominated for the Peace and Sport Award in the 'Sport Made Simple' category.

"WBSC is humbled and honoured," commented WBSC President Riccardo Fraccari. "We have been specifically focused on creating a fresh, new discipline that serves as an easy-to-access tool that provides similar social and sports development benefits, but with a smaller, simpler version of the game. This important social responsibility project perfectly aligns with our vision to reach one billion people across the globe."
