Baseball-Softball the most participated Team Sport in the United States

By World Baseball Softball Confederation, www.wbsc.org

Baseball-softball is the most participated sport in the United States of America with 25.6 million participants. The data comes from a recent study by the Sports and Fitness Industry Association (SFIA).

The study also shows that the amount of people who played baseball-softball within the USA rose 21% (or approximately 15.9 million people) from 2014 to 2018.

Tony Reagins, MLB Executive Vice President of baseball and softball development, was quoted by MLB website as follows: “Increasing access for young people to participate in baseball and softball has been a top priority for our industry since Commissioner Manfred’s tenure began in 2015.”

Reagings refers to the implementation of the Play Ball youth initiative, that has a simple goal: getting more kids to hit, throw or catch a baseball, even if it’s not within the boundaries of an organized game.
