After winning the bid, the Ghana Baseball & Softball Federation set the pace to host the maiden edition of the games here on African soil. The decision to hold this spectacular event was arrived at after considering some key benchmarks.

First among them was the steaming youth population of the Central Region and the ease of access to schools of all levels. The historic placement of the region was another major factor as Cape Coast plays a very fundamental role in the slave trade era. We also seek to expose other tourist potentials within the region and draw some foreign exchange for the people of Cape Coast and the nation as a whole.

The games are starting on the 16th with 8 countries competing for the 2 spots at the World Cup later this year. Team Ghana is poised to defend its territory and sail through against all odds. Other countries in action will be Nigeria, South Africa, Tunisia, Benin, Burkina Faso, Zambia, and Tanzania.
