The World Baseball Softball Confederation has announced the dates for its first ever meeting. The congress will take place from March 7-9, 2014 in a location yet to be determined. This will be the first time since the joining of both federations that the two will unite.
The International Baseball Federation (IBAF) and the International Softball Federation (ISF) agreed to combine in 2012. The combination of the two became known as the WBSC.
The combined group will continue to try and further the games across the world, including trying to regain status at an Olympic sport for the 2020 Games.
