Hi all,

My family and I are moving to Kyiv in August and I was wondering if there are any leagues or teams playing fastpitch or baseball in the capital or anywhere in or around the Ukraine?  I like playing baseball too, so that would be fine.

During the winter I'd like to play some basketball as well, so if anyone reading this knows of any basketball leagues that would be helpful info as well.

Thanks in advance!

Adam

We do have a "Federation of baseball and softball of Ukraine", but whether anybody plays here is still a question.

Welcome to Ukraine in August and good luck with your search.

Finding some company to play basketball is really easier.

Good to know you had that luck. If the play takes place in Kiev I will surely come and see. Really wonder how it looks live, not behind the TV screen. Will you share the info about time and place?

By the way...

For anyone who is interested, I did find both softball and baseball.

If you are interested in either, please let me know.  email me adamsmith013 at gmail.com

Let me know your level and experience and positions.  Softball happens near nivky area, and we play baseball at park druzhby narodov (same as image above).

Adam,

I am glad that you found a place (Druzhby Narodiv Ballpark - You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login) where kids, youth and adults play baseball and softball.

There is a Kyiv Baseball League (KBL) that uses this field most of weekends during a season.

If you want to get to train in the gym with batting gallery and pitching machine, you may find it in Darnytsia school 111, Zdolbunivska 7b.

Visit Kyiv Baseball & Softball School (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login) or Federation of Baseball & Softball (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login) for more information.
