Italian Baseball and Softball Federation

History of FIBS

Costitution

This discipline was first introduced in Rome in 1931 with a game played at the Accademia della Farnesina. However, the Federation made its first moves after the war. On 7 February 1947, Guido Graziani founded the Lega Italiana Softball (LIS or Italian Softball League) and a year later, on 12 March 1948, Max Ott founded the Lega Italiana Baseball (LIB or Italian Baseball League) in Milan. On 3 December 1948 the Associazione Italiana Baseball (AIB or Italian Baseball Association) which two days later, also in Rome, joined forces with LIS, founded the Federazione Italiana Baseball e Softball (FIBS or Italian Baseball and Softball Federation). FIBS’ subsequent merger with the Lega Italiana Baseball (LIB) led to the foundation in Bologna, on 29 January 1950, of the Federazione Italiana Palla Base (FIPB). Recognized as “affiliated” with CONI in November 1953, the Federation became effective as of 23 November 1957.
