Message from the President,

So many boys and girls have deep appetite for playing Baseball. The Baseball Federation of Kenya has created an opportunity for all of them not as an alternative to the conventional sports but as a sport that creates opportunity for them to networks with the world through sports.

Baseball is a ball game played between two teams of nine on a diamond-shaped circuit of four bases. The first official game of baseball in the United States took place in June 1846 in Hoboken, New Jersey. In 1869, the Cincinnati Red Stockings became America's first professional baseball club. A century later baseball was introduced to Kenya by the US marines.
As John Tatum said Baseball isn’t just a game, but rather life being played out in a field – a field of dreams- on diamonds of green, Where players pursuing their dreams try to be the best they can be on the grandest stage of all – When men become boys and boys become men (or when Women become girls and girls become women). All speaking one universal language without uttering a single word.
I personally learned playing baseball late in life while in high school. This birthed in me my greatest admiration of the sport. I wasn’t the MVP but with time I realized there is space for everyone in the world of sports and it takes commitment, discipline, camaraderie, respect and sacrifice and these form the core values of Baseball Federation of Kenya.

Baseball in Kenya has gone through ups and down since late 90’s. The time for the growth of the sport in the region is now here and was cemented it by hosting the first ever pre-Olympic qualifier in Nairobi in April, 2019. We have established a position among the leaders of baseball in Africa through our affiliation to Africa Baseball and Softball Association (ABSA) and globally through affiliation with the World Baseball and Softball Confederation (WBSC). Part of our vision is to establish baseball in all counties in Kenya for both men and women or boys and girls. We are working hard to ensure baseball grows right to the grassroots at the village level and become a household sport in Kenya. Baseball is currently being played in 20 counties in Kenya but there is great need to increase the momentum of establishing new clubs, getting new sponsorships and ensuring tighter collaboration with the county governments, national government and the international community. This is in our priority.

I came in as president of Baseball Federation of Kenya in April 2018. I stand on the shoulders of giants hence can see far ahead and there is only one option "to win". To our friends who have stood with us during our local, national and international events we remain indebted and covet more of your support. As Charles Sledge Jr. said athletes are born winners, they're not born losers, and the sooner you understand this, the faster you can take on a winning attitude and become successful in life.

Welcome to baseball Federation of Kenya

Titus Mutwiri
President, Baseball Federation of Kenya

& Director, Maasailand Baseball Academy


The Baseball Federation of Kenya Technical Committee is an arm that reports to the executive. The technical arm interprets the practical application of the playing rules to the entire leadership and baseball fraternity at large.

Objectives of the Technical Committee include:
  • To promote, encourage and develop the game of Baseball across Kenya
  • To provide train opportunities for Coaches, Umpires, Scorers and Players
  • To organize National Baseball Tournaments for all categories U-13, U-15, U-17, U-19 and seniors
  • To organize International tournaments sanctioned by the Africa Baseball Softball Association or World Baseball Softball Confederation

Good habits that are learned early pay off every day.

Dedan Kariuki
Technical Director/ V. President
Baseball Federation of Kenya
It has been a great privilege to be a part of the Kenya Baseball fraternity leadership team. I oversee financial operations for BFK and I play a key role on matters logistics and analysis.My association with Baseball Federation of Kenya began in 2010, when I was engaged to organise and introduce primary schools from Kibera to participate in  baseball. 

As a federation ,we have witnessed the growth of the game from a pastime game initially played in select schools to a sport that is gaining traction and growing in popularity in the country. Over the years we have seen an increase in the number of teams in the various counties. This has been achieved despite the various financial and logistical challenges we have been experiencing. Most of our activities have been operating on personal contributions, assistance from well wishers, institutions and the government which has been facilitating our national events. Even with this support, it hasn't been enough to enable us to operate efficiently as the constraints have hindered some of our agenda particularly recruitment and training in counties around Kenya. 

We always welcome partnerships, mentors, collaborations, donations and friends who are willing to join us in this glorious journey.
In the ensuing years, I have worked closely with the President Mr Titus Mutwiri,  the Head Technical Director, Mr Dedan Kariuki, on a variety of technical and financial matters. The support has also included fundraising for equipment, donations and outsourced technical support and various club financial, valuation and transaction matters. I have also supported numerous BFK committees and special federation  projects through the years.
My mantra for baseball  has always  been and will always be 'EAT, SLEEP, WALK, TALK BASEBALL!!'

Rachel Baraza,
BFK, Treasurer, Finance Director  and  Chair of Finance Committee.

Baseball 5 is new exciting and fast moving game which though modeled in the principles of traditional baseball, adopts a more simplified approach in terms of space and equipment used. Played by 5 players against 5, it can be played anywhere there is open space including back yards and basket ball courts while the only equipment required is a rubber ball. Kenya is currently in position 2 in the continent in Baseball5

Since it’s launch a few years ago, the view this is best entry point for would be professional baseball players in future, is gaining currency among many stakeholders including the World Baseball and Softball Confederation, amid calls to make it an Olympic Sport .

In Kenya the sport is taking root and during COVID19 lockdown regional coaches received online training conducted by WBSC courtesy of Baseball Federation of Kenya and their counter parts national softball federation . Plans for the first continental Baseball 5, competitions in readiness to the World Championships are also at a advanced stage .

Women Baseball  image
Women baseball started in 1875 in the Americas. It has been a popular game in a number of regions giving girls an opportunity to enjoy the sport. Seven teams competed in the 7th edition of women baseball world cup in South Korea in 2016.

Despite many young girls desiring to play baseball like their male counterparts, there has been a missing link in this sport for the girl child in Africa. The Baseball Federation of Kenya has taken this opportunity to introduce baseball for girls and will be going to the counties to establish the sport alongside Men baseball.

Young men who play baseball have their friends, sisters, and colleagues who admire the sport and therefore giving this huge opportunity to the girls will help them experience more fun and network with other girls across the world through this new frontier sport.
Currently we have women baseball in Nairobi, Kajiado, Migori, Yatta, Elburgon and Meru

Umpiring Desk

It’s a great honour to be part of the Umpiring team of the Baseball Federation of Kenya. BFK has done provided opportunities to equip the umpiring department although a lot more needs to be done. In the last three years BFK has organised two umpiring trainings, one facilitated by the Baseball 4 Africa, and another one organised by the World Baseball and Softball Confederation (WBSC). Currently we have over 10 trained umpires in Kenya who can referee matches professionally. They include Umpires Patrick Ndunda, Morris Thuku, George Kinuthia, Naomi Muratha, John Mbugua and Caleb Malel. During the 2019 Baseball Olympic pre- qualifiers held at Lenana School all these received immense training under the instruction of Paul Bokern of WBSC umpiring commission.


Interest in scoring baseball game was developed in both Jacinta and David way back in 2010 when Thomas Wilson (Tom) introduced the game in Migori County but he was the only one who could record the scores during games. The basic dynamics of the game were still very raw to us then. In March 2012, Migori hosted Nairobi Giants and Meru Baseball teams for a three day 15U and 17U teams tournament. Jacinta and David participated as Tournament Scorers at this level very successfully with trophies being awarded to winning teams. In December 2014, Jacinta and David alongside other scorers from Uganda and Tanzania, attended the first formal Baseball Scoring Workshop facilitated by Ms. Lessly Cook from the South Africa Baseball Scoring Commission. It went for one week and at the end, Level 1 Scoring Accreditation Certificates were awarded to both Jacinta and David.


The Baseball Federation of Kenya has held many coaching programmes across the country. There is a continuous endeavor to keep growing the number of skillful coaches who can continue influencing the development of the sport. The Japan Africa Baseball and Softball (J-ABS) Foundation is among the first cooperation agreements that Baseball Federation of Kenya (BFK) has signed and many more will be done to ensure that the country has enough coaches to spread the the sports of Baseball and Baseball5
