The Baseball Victoria International Friendship Series is an annual event that allows Victorian children to host teams predominately from the International Boys Nankyu Baseball Association, Japan Incorporation (IBA Boys).
Teams from Japan, and recently Singapore and Taiwan, as well as NSW, come and experience new cultures, create new friends, reacquaint with old friends and play baseball.
The series is held in late March each year at venues across Melbourne. Our visitors are treated to local family hospitality and sightseeing attractions within Melbourne, including Puffin’ Billy, the Queen Victoria Market and the Phillip Island Penguin Parade.
The series has been staged in Melbourne for over 15 years. It is available only for Under 12 boys and girls and games are played under baseball rules (as opposed to Little League rules).
