Women Baseball Malaysia (WBM) was established with a vision of “Empowering Women and Girls Through Sports”.
WBM, founded in 2018, is a not-for-profit organisation under Baseball Federation of Malaysia (BFM). WBM’s mission is to strengthen BFM’s efforts in promoting baseball in Malaysia and most importantly provide a dedicated platform to advance the status, liberty, and well-being of Malaysian women and girls particularly in baseball and sports in general. WBM’s efforts are meant to allow women and new generations of girls to experience the many benefits of sports participation: increased confidence, improved health, greater employment opportunitites, and enhanced academic success.
Women in baseball is nothing new as its history can be traced back to the mid 1800s in United States of America (USA). Currently, the strongest and most organized women’s baseball leagues are in the USA, Ausralia,Japan, Taiwan, Cuba, Hong Kong, and Canada. WBM intends to emulate the success of those countries, and had its first meeting at BFM’s office 2018 to discuss the strategy and development plans for successful women and girl’s baseball programs in Malaysia.
BFM through WBM has recently forged cooperation with Philippine Amateur Baseball Association in January 2019 as one of the key steps in advancing the development of women’s baseball in Philippines and most importantly here in Malaysia. The timing is perfect as for the first time in history, women’s baseball will be featured in the upcoming 2019 Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games) in Philippines from 30th November to 11thh December 2019.
WBM is confident that our women’s national team stands a high chance of securing a medal at SEA Games as only two countries, i.e. Philippines and Indonesia , are strong contenders for the gold medal, Realising this opportunity, WBM has crafted sponsorship packages that will help the growth of women and girls baseball in Malaysia and at the same time strengthening awareness and driving excitement towards the brand and/or product of contributing companies. We need all the support we can get. Please join our family and
be part of history in the making.
