For the first time in Sri Lanka Baseball, the President of the Sri Lanka Amateur Baseball/ Softball Association, Fazil M. Hussain has been elected as the Director of the West Asia of Baseball Federation of Asia at the congress meeting held today (19thFebruary) at Taipei.

This marks the beginning of a new era of Baseball in Sri Lanka and with the West Asia tournament set to be held in late June/ early July we have no doubt the development and popularization of Baseball in the island will reach greater heights.

This election comes off the back of the great work done by his committee for Baseball in the country. From developing the game to receiving the opportunity to host the West Asia Baseball tournament in the Island this year.

All this activity has been strengthened by the current President and his committee and this is the very first time a Sri Lankan has been elected for a role of any sort in the Baseball Federation of Asia (BFA).
