If you are an Irish citizen or if you have a parent or grandparent that was born in Ireland, you are eligible to play for the Irish National Baseball Team.

Ireland currently fields an 18U and 18+ National Team. But we are always on the lookout for eligible players in the 12U and 15U levels.

Obtaining Irish Citizenship and Passport

In order to compete for Team Ireland in European Championship tournaments, you will need to have Irish citizenship and an Irish passport. The process for obtaining both citizenship and passport can take several months and can cost up to $500 (though sometimes much less).

If you’re interested in being considered for the team, or if you’d like more information on gaining Irish citizenship in order to play for Ireland, please fill out the form below.
