Baseball in Greece

Baseball was played in Greece before the 2004 Olympics as exhibition games in the 1950's and in the late 1960's early 70's as Little League games on the US Air Force and Navy Base in Athens.


The Hellas National Baseball Team owes it’s birth and persistent existence to the International Olympic Committee’s 1997 decision that awarded the 2004 Olympic Games to Athens, Greece.
