About the Irish American Baseball Society

The Irish American Baseball Society supports and celebrates the game of baseball in Ireland and America.

What We Do

Supporting the Game in Ireland and the USA

The Irish American Baseball Society is a non-profit subsidiary of the Baseball United Foundation (Federal Tax ID: 20-4623222). Together, we’ve been working  to support and strengthen the game of baseball in Ireland for over 15 years.

Researching the Irish Impact on the Game

We study the impact of Irish immigrants and Irish Americans on the early days of baseball and we celebrate the Irish American influence on today’s game.

We also study the history of baseball in Ireland, from the first known Irish baseball game in 1874 to the present day.
