Baseball at the World Games

The World Games are organized by the International World Games Association (IWGA, founded in 1981) every 4 years. Thus, an International Sports Federation (IF) can become a member of the IWGA, it must satisfy two essential conditions:
The IF must be a member of SportAccord (the umbrella organization for all (Olympic and non-Olympic) international sports federations), and their sport does not belong to the current Olympic program.
Since 1989 the World Games are under the special patronage of the IOC.

Women's World Series

WIBA = Women's International Baseball Association

Since 1999, there have been contacts between the American Women's Baseball League and Japan and contests in the U.S. and Japan were organized. They decided to expand the activities and to organize a Women's World Series. Therefore the WIBA (president 2001 - 2004: Jim Glennie USA) was formed on Apr 10, 2001 in Tokyo. The founding members were AUS, JPN, CAN and USA.
With the introduction of a Women's World Cup by the IBAF in 2004, the need for a separate women's world association was no longer present and the WIBA ceased its activities.
