Cool sports for anyone with a mental or physical disability
G-Baseball is the collective name for the Baseball and Softball variants played by youth and adults with physical and or mental disabilities. Since 2012 G-Baseball is rolled out across Belgium.
Everyone can participate with our cool sports: we match the type of gameplay and some materials according to the participants; all depending on the circumstances and the level of the players. All variants can be played with genuine baseball gear, both indoors and outdoors. This also includes wheelchair softball and even baseball for the visual impaired.
This makes it possible for all kids and adults with disabilities to have the same fun success experience as the millions of baseball and softball players worldwide …..

The G-Slow Pitch Tournament is an INCLUDING event, which states that people with and without disabilities should play sports together. The goal: to sensibilize all athletes (with and without disabilities) to learn – by playing our sports together – the real gameplay and meaning of baseball and softball.

We are going to generate quite some local and hopefully national publicity for this G-Slow Pitch (Wheelchair) Tournament and are looking forward to a big turnout.
