About IBA and IBACA
The International Baseball Association (IBA) began in California with the goal of bringing more structure to the identification and development of baseball talent in developing countries and increasing the flow of quality players into Major League Baseball from these areas. The affiliated International Baseball Academy of Central America (IBACA) is focused specifically on Central America’s youth baseball talent, helping players pursue their dreams of playing in the Major Leagues.
IBACA also offers education, vocational training, and employment opportunities, providing critical social and development services to facilitate the growth of these young men into responsible community role models. With this expanded program, IBACA intends to help raise the standard of living of the surrounding community as well as of the participating players.
