Baseball and Softball both joined the IWGA as individual members in 1980, but left the IWGA in 1981 and 1989. Softball changed its mind and applied to become part of the IWGA family in 2011.
Both federations merged in 2013 to become IWGA member as WBSC. They will be part of TWG 2021 with Women Softball.
