The World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) Paralympic Commission is helping to deliver a baseball for the blind seminar in Tanzania later this month. 

Baseball and softball's global governing body says its four-person Paralympic Commission is collaborating with the Tanzania Baseball and Softball Association (TaBSA) and Dar Es Salaam University College of Education (DUCE) on the symposium.

It is planned for April 22 and 23.

The TaBSA and DUCE earlier this year signed an accord which will lead to baseball for the blind being introduced at the college, which is said to be part of a TaBSA five-year strategic plan.

An introductory course designed to acquaint national governing bodies with baseball for the blind was added to the WBSC Academy in November.

One month later, TaBSA officials were among a group to participate in the course.

It was designed by the Italian Baseball Association for the Blind, and is intended to allow federations to discover and develop the discipline.

The latest WBSC Paralympic Commission-backed seminar follows an introductory clinic to baseball, softball and Baseball5.

Two of the four WBSC Paralympic Commission's members - Lorenzo Vinassa de Regny and Sarwar Ghulam - are Italian.

American Tom Nagel is chair and Mariela Gonzalez of Mexico is the panel's WBSC staff liaison member.

Ghulam was named Most Valuable Player of the Italian Baseball for the Blind League in 2020.
